Nice deep berry-leaning-fuchsia shade. Like its almost-name-twin, 522, good for the retro vibrant lip without being truly red. Great pigmentation, okay feeling, very slightly pearled but not frosty. Tends to wear off faster than I expect, but doesn't smudge wildly or bleed.
This is a dark berry color. It's got a nice thick silky feeling on the lips and for my coloring would be great for a high impact night shade. I'm very surprised with WnW's lineup lately and this is one of the this that has impressed me.
BUT! I will say, while the color quality and pigmentation is great, the lasting power is not fantastic, I found myself touching up in the bathroom after about every drink.
I did definitely get some compliments on the color though! worth the $.79!
This is such a gorgeous color, and the formula is just a tiny notch below Revlon--and to me they're right up there with the best. The only reason I took off 1 lippie is for the packaging, which is what I can only call utilitarian: it works, but isn't particularly nice. Plus, the name of the shade comes off when you unwrap the cellophane, although the number is still on the bottom. Still, great formula, lovely color, 99 cents--you can't go wrong. I went ahead and got a backup in case this gets dc'd. It's that good.
I was lemming for a red to match my Zoya Eve nail color. As I don't wear red lips ever, I only wanted to spend a little cash and Wet n Wild doesn't test on animals so I thought I'd give them a try. The fuschia-red color is sooo lovely, there's a slight sheen and I like the sheer look when I blot my lips together, very polished without being harsh or intense. Loving this pretty color!
This is the lipstick I use when I go with 50's pin-up look. It has good, blue-red color and feels nice and smooth on the lips. It has a tendency to bleed over the lipline so I would recommend a good red lipliner for it to stop the bleeding color.
I would recommend this to ANYONE that loves red lipstick and pin-up looks.
I bought this on a whim because it was 99 cents and it was bogo free. So I got the only 4 lipsticks they still had in stock that I thought were pretty. I wore this mixed with Dark Wine with very light makeup otherwise. I couldn't believe how many noticed and complimented me.
I had to be very careful about the application. I used a lipbrush to line it around my lips before filling it in and then blotted and used the powder/tissue trick. Then applied a little more from the tube. I brought both the shades with me in case I needed to reapply but it actually stayed on pretty well. I was surprised that it stayed through light kissing and drinking out of a glass but after about three hours or so I needed a touch up. I would recommend using a matching lipliner (I didn't have one this shade) as it likes to bleed out a little. Overall I love the color, I think the formula is nice, not drying. I just wish it had a little more stay power and maybe a fancier tube.
Soft texture with a nice rich color. Will be lovely during the holidays.
Well I like the packaging of the WnW lippies. Also this color, which I can see others have called "red," on me is more of a berry/raspberry with red in it. Not sure how to describe it. Regardless, it's pretty. Looks good with just concealer and mascara. I use some sort of a primer or base to give it something to grab, but I do that for all lipsticks.
Im not much of a lipstick wearer but saw this at Walgreens on clearance for $0.49 so I thought I'd give it a try.
I received a lotof compliments on the flattering shade with my skin tone - red/berry, but alas it is a cheap lipstick so it does not last.
Good color for about 5 minutes.
This is a very vibrant blue toned fuchsia red, as stated by the other two reviewers. As they also said it is very creamy and highly pigmented.
That being said, I don't care for it much. The color is what I would call shockingly bright. It can take over your whole face. It's definitely not an ugly color at all, but for me, it tends to make my teeth look yellowed, even though I have very white teeth. Also, being so creamy it tends to spread outside of your lips, unless you use a very waxy liner. You also have to do the finger in your mouth trick to keep it from transferring to your teeth.
Even though it was only a dollar, I hate to waste it-- so I've figured out how to wear it... I put on a single swipe on each lip, mush my lips together, and then blot....about 100 times until it's just a stain, and then I put on a little chapstick or Vaseline just to give it a little sheen.
Actually, I bought this shade for my Halloween costume last year (I was a vampire) but it didn't work for that either, being too fuchsia and not as blood-red as I'd wanted.
Overall...not for me.
