Wow! I must say that I'm extremely impressed with this WNW balm stain. Lady and the Vamp is a beautiful deep berry shade - absolutely perfect for fall. Some reviews have complained that color fades to fuschia, but on me it fades to a lovely berry-stained flush. The remnants of the stain lasts a long time, more so than with Revlon, Pixi, Tarte, CoverGirl...This is cheap too. It's not drying on my lips. No frost or sparkle. Just creamy, beautiful, non-drying color.
I love this product because it is a lovely Merlot shade with a smooth, glossy finish. It definitely stains the lips, too! This is the first shade that I have tried, and I intend to try more in the future.
On me, this is a pretty dark plum. These are a tad bit glossier than the original Revlon balm stains, and have a decent wear time.
One complaint is that this color in particular gets really fuschia looking as it fades. The cap on the crayon broke within a week, in my purse, and it got everywhere. Nope. Just nope.
This was just "meh" for me. The color was gorgeous when I first applied it, a deep plummy color with a hint of burgundy. The finish was glossy and it felt comfortable on my lips. However, it wasn't very moisturizing- within a few hours my lips were dry, even though I had primed with lip balm before applying the stain. Plus, after a few hours of wear the color changed from plum to bright fuschia. It was still quite vivid, but it got much pinker. I liked the original color much better and wish it would have lasted. I will try the other colors and hope for better results, but I would not repurchase this shade again.
I saw Emily Noel's review on this on YT and had to try it. It's a deepish berry but not as vivid on me as I expected. And I can't detect any mint as she described which I was looking forward to. But it moisturizes well and provides nice color. Unfortunately it didn't last very long. After the creaminess wore off I didn't have much stain left. I got this at Wags for $2.99, plus there was a $1 coupon on it.
I came across this product recently and I'm so glad I did! The color comes off as a deep strawberry-burgundy and it really stains without drying. I paid $3.99 but it's worth so much more. Well done Wet n Wild!
