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.
I really like this. HG perfect red? Hmmmm not sure yet. I have been wearing NYX Snow White which is a much deeper blood red. I love Snow White, however, I seem to be looking too pale as of late and am feeling like a need a brighter red. Stoplight Red fits the bill. Its only $2.00, and I can pick it up many more places than NYX. Spotlight Red is RED. Much brighter than Snow White. Much more "pin up red". I cannot really notice any definate undertones. Its not orange or pink, all I see is red, with maybe a slight blue base. ( the other red in Wet-n-Wilds matte line, Red Velvet, looks to pinkish to me) Stoplight Red does brighten me up but I am a bit concerned its too bright. I'm thinking it just needs to grow on me since I have been wearing much deeper reds for a few months now. Its very longlasting, and not drying. Again, as with all my reds, I apply with a lip brush. I donot have to blot and reapply with this one. UPDATE- I am leaning torwards this more and more, its even beating out MAC Russian Red for me ( at least colorwise- Stoplight red is brighter and not as deep as Russian Red)
I go crazy for red lipstick in the winter. i have a bunch of differnt ones from all differnt lines and price points.this is the thrid wnw lipstick i have gotten and all of them have been great.Its matte but not to drying on my lips. it goes on nice and creamy and stays put.I love the bright bold red color.At 2.00 you cant beat this lippstick.
This is a great red but after a while the lipstick becomes really crumbly & doesn't work very well. Not sure if i got a bad one or what because my other l/s from this line don't do this. As for now i'll repurchase just to see if it was this particular tube that sucks.
This color is BRIGHT, but I think thats obvious from the packaging from the store so I dont believe anyone would think otherwise. It was true to what I had in mind.
These are great though, they really live up to the hype. I would not typically purchase WnW products, I have always had the impression that they would be terrible (and I still think a lot of it is) but these are nice. They are almost totally matte, which I love because I have huge lips. As with any matte lipstick, you need a liner, and you need to make sure your lips are not flakey because it wont look good no matter if its WnW or Mac matte colors.
I give the packaging a 4 because I love how these come in a flat top instead of a pointed lipstick and I like the black packaging. It gives it a better look. I hate WnW usual sort of silver packing. It looks terrible. They would get a 5 if the sticks could be retracted completely into the tube.
This is beautiful. It's a dupe for MAC Ruby Woo, and looks fabulous! I like the color. It's not too much, but it's classic and sophisticated. The best part is, it's not too drying. Love it!
SHADE DESCRIPTION: bright, blue-based red
- long wearing
Such a nice red - very classic and the blue undertones are pretty subtle. This is definitely a keeper.
This and the other red from this line Red Velvet are my favorite red lipsticks, and I own more than 10 ranging from WnW to Chanel. Stoplight Red is a true, crisp red that is just blue-based enough to look classic and make teeth look white.
This is my favorite matte lipstick formula because it is so intensly pigmented, it's truly matte but not drying, it easily lasts 6-8hrs, it transfers much much less than other lipstick formulas, and it leaves an even stain. Stoplight red definitely has the creamiest finish out of the line. The downside is that the packaging and the shape of the lipstick is horribly designed.

I love this lipstick! Wow! When they say Megalast...they mean it. I wore it for a Christmas party/dinner this past Saturday and it did not budge even through four courses of food! I still looked great for all the pictures afterward!
I did exfoliate and moisturize before I put it on, though. And you need to warm it up before you try putting it on because it's not a super creamy texture. It really delivers the matte look which I love. Super cheap too - $2,99 at CVS.
Love this lipstick.It is perfect for the pinup look.If I apply this with a brush,it lasts all day long and I am the type that eats my lipstick!I am very tan so this shade just pops on my lips
