Everyone seems to be on a budget these days.  What makes it really difficult is finding great makeup at affordable prices.  Sometimes it is true that you get what you pay for, however certain brands are making awesome products at affordable prices.

Wet n Wild is one of those brands!  I don’t know about you, but Wet n Wild takes me back to middle school when all I’d wear is mascara and lipstick.  Their prices have always been really low, however the quality of their products weren’t quite up to par (mind you this was over 10 years ago).

I was shopping for a cheap mascara to hold me over until I got a new one for the holidays.  I decided on Wet n Wild’s Lash Intense Mascara.  I honestly didn’t think it’d work that great, but for less than $5 I couldn’t complain.

The packaging is really cute!  The container is all purple so it’s super feminine.  The part with the mascara in it has it’s own little plastic cover and the top part (with the brush) was next to it.  I actually really like this idea because the package is clear so I was able to see what the brush looks like.


Let me tell you that the brush is awesome!  There’s two different sides to the brush.  One side has bigger/wider teeth and the other side has smaller teeth.  The bigger side can be used to apply the mascara while the smaller side can be used to comb through the lashes to remove any clumps (although I don’t find this mascara to clump at all).

Overall, I am beyond satisfied with this product!  My lashes look great; they never look like spider legs and they look longer, more natural.  I still can’t believe I paid less than $5 for it!  I definitely recommend this product for every woman whether she’s on a budget or not.  I will be buying this mascara again as well as other Wet n Wild products!  I can’t wait to see how their other products have transformed over the years.
