So far I only have tried the one color so far, (521A) but it's wonderful. It has a very nice consistancy. I typically hate lipstick because I find most very drying.. But this isn't. It's moisturizing, the color is nice and the price is incredible. I'd definitely try it. Especially if you haven't tried Wet N' Wild in a while because I used to hate them.. But they've redone everything and I have to say, I've loved everything I've bought from them so far.
I have all of the colors because Walgreens frequently has 50% off all of their wet n wild and so they're only 49 cents each. They're very pigmented and go on smoother than most other drugstore lipsticks. I don't get the bad reviews, most of them are pretty old, and the formula and packaging have been drastically reformulated.
I bought color 514A, the color of the lipstick itself and the sticker on the bottom were a delicious vintage red, what went on my lips however, was a blinding hot pink/fuchsia! After trying to wash it off, my lips were stained a bright pink. The only reason I did not give this product a 1 is because it DID go on smoothly and the quality seemed good.
Wet n Wild has really come a long way from those dry unpigmented lipsticks I used to buy as a young teen. I bought a couple today and am blown away by the creamy texture and great staining power.
While these aren't the best lipsticks on the market, they're perfect for experimenting with colors you wouldn't usually try. If you've been craving a dark red or bright pink but don't want to spend the money on something you're not sure you'll wear or will look horrible on you, buying similar wet n wild shades can help you make your decision. Many other drugstore brands are somewhat expensive ($9-$12 for a lipstick) but these are consistently under a dollar and are often on sale. If these were selling for much more I wouldn't rate them so highly, but they are much better quality than their price lets on. I recently bought a couple and found them creamy and not drying. The only real problem I had was that they came off very easily if my lips came in contact with anything. Also depending on the store, there may not be a great selection
These have been a staple for me for years. How can you go wrong with $.93 cent lipstick?! You really can't beat these. The WnW display is where I head to first when I'm craving a new color, cause I can experiment & not worry about spending too much. They've really improved their formulas in the last few years too. They smell nice & apply smoothly, though I wish they had just a bit drier texture. continued >>
This is #527 also known as Pink Frost. Unlike a lot of the reviewers I found this to be quite a nice lipstick. It was smooth, creamy and well pigmentated. This is a big step up from the WnW lipstick of a couple of years ago. Those were quite waxy and hard so this was a pleasant surprise. The staying power was average to slightly above average for a lipstick. The frost in the formula isn't overpowering and the color looked quite nice with my NW20 skintone. I paid .50 for this one on sale - a real bargain for this IMO. I also like the fact that these are so cheap you can buy one for every event or outfit w/o breaking the bank. The packaging could be a little cuter but it is functional. I would definitely buy this color again and will continue to purchase WnW lipstick.
I bought two wet 'n' wild lipsticks for 99 cents each. One in color 510A, which is a bright pink-reddish color. This lipstick is good when you want to play up your lips. The color is vibrant and looks nice. I also bought 547B, which is more natural. It's a goldish-pink color which makes your lips look natural, with just a pop of color. These lipsticks are good, especially for being only 99 cents!
I use this along with N.Y.C. lipsticks. I prefer the N.Y.C. Better colors and packaging/look. And it's about the same price. They just never stay on though! I get better staying power with the lip pencils! But the color selection is pretty good. Can't beat the price.
I don't know if my tastes have changed or what, but I can't find anything I like in the Wet 'n' Wild lineup. Back in my more poverty-stricken days W'n'W was what I could afford, and I had a few key shades I really liked. Now, each time I go to the display, the colors seem to fall into 2 categories: muddy and garish. They don't seem well-blended to me; the browns are harsh and dull, and the brights are simple Crayola-esque shades that are totally unflattering to pale skins. The frosts all seem to be bright peach or washed-out beige. I can really tell the difference between this line and something slightly more upscale, like Maybelline. The formulas of W'n'W lippies are actually decent, but if you can't find a color to harmonize with your skin, what's the point? I gave these 2 lippies instead of 1 because I do like the Pout Protector tinted balms (despite the fact that there isn't a natural-looking color in the bunch). They're nice for low-maintenance days.
