Over the weekend there was a sale on select Wet n Wild satin lipsticks, so my Fiancé ordered a few colors for me to try . Now its been years since I’ve used Wet n Wild lipsticks, my last one was a bubblegum pink color and one of the Halloween Fantasy Makers Blue Magic lipsticks. Plus my overall view of Wet n Wild was that they were always hit or miss . So with that being said lets try some lipsticks.
The formula itself is very slippery , but not too streaky .You do have to kind of build up though, especially with Retro Pink . These do kind of have a scent to them , Just Garnet smelled like berries but kind of stale . I wasn’t too big a fan honestly.The other ones smelled more or less like berries but without the wierd stale smell . As for the wear, Retro Pink and Just Garnet had to be reapplied during my normal day to day routine , while I only tried Blind Date for the pictures , it seemed to apply the best . The finish is a bit shimmery and I could definitely see a bit of sparkles in Blind Date and Retro Pink . So the Wet n Wild site states these are moisturizing lipsticks but I noticed when they wore on they kind of dryed out my lips , not sure what that was about , and Blind Date definitely stained my lips a bit . So I used a sugar and oil scrub to clean it off .
Overall these lipsticks are alright for the 97 cent price but I’m still not too big a fan of the formula , mainly the strange smell haha . But they are pretty pigmented , even if the wear time isn’t super long and you have to reapply throught the day . Also theres the whole controversy with Wet n Wild’s animal testing and lying about it so I don’t see myself buying any more Wet n Wild products . But on a side note I found one of my old school Wet N Wild Fantasy Makers in Blue Magic . I may have to do a swatch for the nostalgia and post a flashback pic since I don’t want to put it on my lips , its too old 😂😭.
