Beauty on a Budget: Wet n' Wild Lash Intense Mascara Review

Ha who would think that mascara that costs $3.79 USD would actually work? Count the Muse amused, delighted, and surprised at how well her testing with Wet n' Wild Lash Intense Mascara went!

Read ahead to find out the deets!

I ran across Wet n' Wild Lash Intense Mascara recently while I was at Walgreens and I must say it actually works quite well. Last Intense makes the standard round of promises such as fuller, thicker lashes but at $3.79 USD my dubious nature set in. Seriously, mascara that's under $4 USD.....doesn't the idea of the price tag alone scare the beegees out of you?

Turns out you can have thicker, longer, and fatter lashes for under $4 USD. Ha, who would guessed?

Wet n' Wild Lash Intense Mascara sports the plastic applicator that's taken the drugstore world by storm lately. Everywhere you look plastic applicators are popping up! What do you think of plastic applicators? I find in some cases that they work rather well but in others not so great. In this case the applicator is the key to creating beautifully long, thick lashes and works quite well. The applicator has no curve and is straight in style with longer bristles on one side and shorter on the other. The best way to apply the mascara is to use the longer bristles to brush a few coats of mascara on and use the shorter end to work product through your lashes while curling them upwards. It does a take a little bit of work to get the knack of using it without creating a mess but a few tries later and I had quite nice results.

Results are pretty amazing! My lashes were considerably thicker, longer, and full of volume. Likey! It wears well through the day without smudging, flaking, or smearing. The cute portable size and purple packaging appeals although it is a tiny bit cheap looking but hey the product works, that counts for something!

What's not to like? If you're on a budget and looking for a cheap mascara that gives longer, fuller lashes this is well worth a try! I didn't LOVE it but I definitely liked it!

Anyone try out Wet n' Wild Lash Intense Mascara?

What did you think?

What are your fav budget mascara scores?

I hate plastic mascara wands. It feels like its pulling out my lashes. So, I probably won't even try this one! But four bucks sounds like a great deal.

hi jackie!

honestly at the price you can afford to try it and toss it out if it doesn't work lol!

I saw this a couple of weeks ago, but I didn't buy. It reminds me of the Rimmel Glam Eyes wand- which is actually quite nice after I got over my bias of not liking these kinds of applicators. I think I'll have to pick this up!!
