Beauty Bestsellers: A Wild, Wonderful Blast From The Past -- For Pennies

What: Wet N Wild Crème Lipliner #666 (Brandy Wine)

Why: For me, high school was a time of electric blue eyeshadow and fuschia nail polish. Looking at me now, in all my Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier glory, you’d never know I went through a white-eyeliner phase (and we’re talking full eyeliner, not just a little swipe for brightness in the corners of the eyelids).

However, my makeup bag has one holdover from those not-so-glory days. This product is so spectacular, so versatile, and so inexpensive that I’ve never been able to give it up. It’s my trusty Wet N Wild Crème Lipliner #666 (Brandywine).

The color is purely, simply “lip.” It melts into any berry, mauve, or rust-colored lipstick like it was specifically made for it. Lipstick stays firmly in place with this liner – in my 11 years of using it, I’ve never had a single smear or bleed. It also looks smashing as an all-over lip color – just use the liner to fill in your lips and top it off with clear gloss (such as MAC Clear Lipglass).

The color is flattering on a huge range of skin tones because of its chameleon-like abilities. If you’re extremely pale and want to use it as an all-over lip color, consider topping it off with a light pink or coral tint to lessen the intensity of the color.

Even better: It costs 99 cents. That’s it. One George Washington (or Sacagawea, if you’re dollar-coin inclined) for perfection.

Just one more reason to hold on to the past, or at least a part of it.

Get yours: Wet N Wild is available at most major drugstores nationwide, or check in at Amazon for limited availability.Check it out, along with other lipliner shades and more beauty products on the Wet N Wild Web site.
