Wet n Wild Brandywine 666 – Still the Best $0.99 Product

Wet n Wild Brandywine 666

If there is one product from ten-fifteen, even twenty years ago that I would swear by, it would be the 99 cent Wet-n-Wild Brandywine 666 lip pencil. Back in the day, lip liner was a staple but now, unless you’re doing a legit red lip, lip pencils are not a regular in an everyday makeup bag. It seems very 90s, that brownish red (sometimes black!) lip pencil lining your lips so the line sticks out and finished with some balm. This was a big look with the 90s supermodels.

Wet-n-Wild Brandywine 666 used to always sell out and based on reviews it’s still beloved. I wore this color for years! Always searching the Wet-n-Wild section to stock up. My Mother approved because it was more neutral than the days of my magenta lipstick obsession. Neither one of us have nice naturally colored lips, our natural lip color is as pale if not paler than our skin tone, so she’d use lip liner as a base before putting on lipstick. I learned from her that Wet-n-Wild 666 was a go-to color – it actually gives us a slight burgundy but natural looking lip color. Plus, using a lip pencil was a good way to learn makeup application – you can see the line but if you make a mistake it’s a lot easier to fix than a staining bright red.

So why a post explaining my love for this color? Burgundy is big right now for fall/winter, as are a few other 90s colors – think brick red, wine, brownish red. I stopped using Wet-n-Wild 666 years ago when I got into lighter blush colored pinks but now I wish I had it in my makeup bag. It is versatile go-to color for all skin tones – it can be a great neutral when you’re really lazy and want to fill in your lips, or it can be mixed with a darker lipstick to make a very sexy, very vampy burgundy pout.

    Too funny. Love your comment. I loved Wet n Wild 419 (I think), so I just started Googling to see if I could get lucky and find it. I, myself, was exactly like you for this product in every way. WAY to go girl. Love it.

      Yes! Thank you for stopping by and sharing. :) I’m so glad I’m not the only one who felt this way about their favorite Wet n Wild color!

        I just found it on eBay and ordered some. I haven’t even really wore lip liner all that much since they stopped selling it at my local grocery store years ago. I wore it faithfully everyday and it would last all day. It was like losing my best friend because I wore it for so many years. Nothing literally compared since. I pray this new one I bought is just the same in every way. I miss wearing it. There is a wet n’ wild site (www.wnwbeauty.com) where you can buy it. It’s just harder for me because I’m from Canada so I eBay’s it. Anyway, thanks for posting. Very interesting to me as well as other wet n’ wild lovers out there like ourselves I’m sure.

          Thank you for sharing that website. I’m so surprised they still have the color I’m looking for. It’s always sad when companies stop making beloved colors. Let us know if the color/texture/formula is the same. I’d love to know how it turns out.
