It took me years to finally settle on a go-to eyeliner; my ultimate holy grail was Hard Candy Walk The Line in Asphalt. My trusty tube had weathered through dozens of my signature cat eye look, but unfortunately, my tube gave up the ghost last week. I was all set to buy another one, but after seeing an empty slot in the Hard Candy display I found out they have discontinued it!
My holy grail product was discontinued, what now?
I’m headed up to Seattle next week and had gone to the store specifically for a new tube before I leave, so I didn’t have time to go home and research a new eyeliner. I grabbed the best looking (and cheapest) product nearby and landed on Wet and Wild’s On Edge Creme Eyeliner in the shade Carbon My Reach.

Wet n Wild On Edge Creme Eyeliner: What does it come with?
This container is deceptively small, you actually get quite a bit of product! On the other hand, I don’t care for the brush that came with it one bit. I immediately chucked it in a drawer and reached for my own angled liner brush.
The bristles don’t even come to a point, it’s a loosely packed paddle tipped brush which would never work for precise lines much less a wing…
On Edge Creme Eyeliner: How did it perform?
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I love this eyeliner! It’s not as deep of a black as my retired Walk The Line, but it builds opacity quickly and doesn’t smear a bit. I swatched this on the back of my hand while I was playing with the brush that came with it, and that tiny line did not budge after washing my hands 4-5 times that day.
This has got to be one of the hardiest waterproof eyeliners I’ve come across, I ended up using coconut oil and my makeup eraser to take off the eye-look shown below. You have to go over the area at least twice to get a satisfactory shade of black, so it’s a little difficult to achieve a sharp wing, but it’s doable with some patience.
