I got this product via an ebay seller because sadly wetnwild isn't available where I live. I'm very fond of bright red lipstikcs and color-wise this perfectly fits the bill. Its lasting power is quite good as well, though I do find it a bit drying. However my big complaint is that you get what you pay for in terms of packaging. I'm not one to be turned down because of a cheap looking packaging but this is super flimsy. I take extra good care of items that are hard to find for me and this was no exception, however after two uses the lipstick broke at the base and I can only put it on with a lipbrush now...which I don't like at all.
Where has this been all of my life? PERFECT red lipstick, and I've tried several! I was turned on to it because I heard it was a dupe for Russian Red, which I've been wanting to try. It really has the same lasting power as MAC or more expensive brands and doesn't bleed or get on my teeth, which is one of my major complaints with reds! It's such a gorgeous shade too, it's really bright and semi-matte, which I love. You would be crazy not to try this, considering it's so cheap and so awesome!
THIS IS AMAZING!
I know wetnwild is well known for their soft eyeshadows (awesome quality!!) but i decided to take a chance and try out their lipsticks as well. I was going to pick out the cheapest of them all, but the red caught my eye, and it was the only one left( unopened too!) hiding behind a bunch of other lipsticks. I'm so glad I got it, only for 1.97 at my local walmart. The formula is nice, and the packaging is the infamous wetnwild packaging- kind of annoying since the stick juts out over the top of the tube so when you put the cap back onto the lipstick, you have to be careful not to slice the lipstick. THe color payoff is amazing, makes my teeth look white, and overpowers the pink acne on my face so the attention is drawn to my lips while dulling out other less-reddish tones on my face. I have yet to wear it for a whole day, but I just unpackaged it and its amazing. I feel like the color payoff and quality overpowers the back packaging. It's managable - you just have to be careful.
I finally got my hands on this little gem since it is always sold out at my local drugstores and for good reason. It is the perfect blue-based red I have been looking for. It is not too matte and has very good staying power though I have to use a lip brush to get more precision. Best of all it is cheap and doesn't dry out my lips. The packaging is not the best but I can live with that.
This is the perfect retro red for me. I have (and will continue to do so) repurchased on several occasions. It's like MAC's Ruby Woo, but not drying at all. I get up to 8 hours of wear with no bleeding. Sometimes, just to be safe I line my lips with NYX's liner in Hot Red and I think it helps the color last even longer.
This lipstick lasts and lasts and lasts! I wore it yesterday all day through several meals, ice skating and it looked just a bit more matte by the end of the night! So sold on these that I got a few more. I paid $1.99 for this at Wallgreens. The only reason I will not get this again is because I need a more orange read for my NW45 skintone. They look best on me when wearing on the nails and lips. So I think the Megalast lippie in red velvet needs to be my next purchase. Also, this isn't actually matte. It had a sheen on me for the entire day. It has color saturation like you would not believe, though. Well done, Wet 'n Wild!
I love this lipstick! I have barely any left and that's because I use it almost everyday. And because it's a beautiful color and so cheap I don't care about the packaging that everyone hates including me.
Surprisingly, it's not that drying, and even if my lips do feel a bit dry throughout the day I'll just pat a little bit lip balm over it or just apply more of the lipstick. This is kind of lipstick that makes me want to buy the entire line of lipsticks.
How I apply it: Apply one layer, blot, repeat.
Lasts all day for me, don't even need a lip liner.
This is such an amazing red. Careful though, if you don't like super bright reds, stay away. But if you're like me and LOVE vibrant reds, you will love this! Such a gorgeous lipstick for the price.
While I have stayed away from reds since the early 90's something about this clear, bright colour drew me in. When I put it on, WHAM, it brought a brightness to my skin tone that made my whole face glow.. You can lay it on matte or sheer it out to a stain.
And the staying power is impressive. I am not one to dab on gloss or lipstick every 5 seconds. This one is a keeper.
I like the price of this product- I like the semi matte finish which glides on fairly easily (even over Winter chapped lips).
The colour itself is far brighter than I imagined when ordering it. I do like it and feel it suits me, but perhaps I'm more 'comfortable' with darker reds. It is a 'true' red with no hint of orange, so it fits my NC50 skin well. The Jury's still out. However, wore it out shopping yesterday and got lots of male attention...even my boyfriend liked it... I'm not excited about the product i guess.
