I was expecting this to be lighter... It's basically my natural lip color , but a bit darker ... But the formula is very nice really soft and creamy with a satin / matte finish . Gives you that full pout look. Wish it was lighter tho. This is very pigmented , awesome price too.. Only 2/3 bucks !
Shade description - Nude/Mauve. VERY similar to MAC's Velvet Teddy. Google Image that and you're pretty much in the exact dupe range. This is essentially a "My Lips But Better" shade for me. Has a brown tone with nude and mauve-y pigments in it. This looks different on many people, I've seen this appear very light, sometimes brown, sometimes pinky, it really depends on your lip color. Kinda cool how this can look unique on everyone :)
Texture - semi matte. Depending on how you apply it, it can lean on the creamier side or matte side. Dabbing and patting this on leaves my lips SO luxurious and full and matte, better than any lip plumper could ever do. Very Jolie ;) While swiping this on leaves it creamier.
Longevity - When I pat this on, it lasts much longer than just one swipe. It does last quite long, I would say a couple hours even with eating or drinking. I love it :)
Smell - NO significant smell which is a HUGE plus for me. YAY!
Packaging - Gets a little messy in the tube, it has a clear cap so you can see all the smudging and stuff. But for this price, don't expect a YSL worthy tube.
Price - I believe 1-3 dollars (depending on the store)? You can't beat that! For the pigmentation, texture, and longevity this is a HUGE STEAL!!! I stocked up!
Overall rating: 9/10. This IS my MUST HAVE GO TO lipstick shade :) Beats out all my other lipsticks!!! Buy one and see for yourself! And hey, if you don't like it, its only a 3 dollar loss max.
This is a perfect modern nude that gives a Brigitte Bardot appeal to the lips. This and Loreal's fairest nude are the best nudes you can find at a reasonable price.
I don't know why this lipstick gets so much hype. I got it at walgreens on sale ($1.49) and I wish I hadn't. It is one of the worst formulas i've ever bought, dry, drags on the lips and looks unnatural. The color is a great nude, even for medium skin tones, but it is such a drag to apply. If you are on a budget, it's probably worth a try. but know you will have to work to apply it. My problem with it is the formula (dry and skips when applying) I have pigmented lips and it covers them for the most part, but it looks so unnatural at the edges of my lips, so I would need to use a lipliner to make it look normal. I will never buy these agains.
This is the first nude lipstick I ever bought! Since it was so cheap I picked it up on the whim, and I will definitely be trying other shades in this line. I think the color is a good match for a wide range of light-medium skin tones. It makes my lips look matte and sexy, but although it is good and I have no big problems with it, I think next time I will look for something with a little more yellow in it since I have yellow/tan skintones.
The texture is amazing, very creamy, but you HAVE to make sure your lips are exfoliated and moisturized before hand! Also this is not drying at all and actually keeps my lips moisturized! Love wet n wild :)
Pretty good lipstick for it's price .. I love lancomes natural beauty , it's my go to lipstick , however , it burns holes through my pocket and makes me cry a little every time I go to that Lancôme counter & pull out my cash.. Well I think this lipstick is a pretty good dupe . The only difference is that this is matte and not a cream .. This lipstick goes well with W&W LipLiner in willow ( only .99 ! )
Not bad. Not perfect, but not too bad. It's just a hair too orange-y for me, but easily fixed with a dab of my Cover Girl Gloss Balm pink shade, and then a dab of Summer Angel from Rimmel over top. Then it looks PERFECT. I haven't found a lipstick yet that doesn't need a little tweaking from either a gloss or another lipstick blended together. I am fair to medium yellow toned brunette. My eyes are very dark. If you have more caramel-y eyes or tones in your hair, this may very well work for you on its own with a dab of balm underneath or clear gloss over top.
I wear mostly high-end makeup (Nars, UD, Stila, etc.) but in my quest for the *perfect* nude lipstick, I've been trying anything & everything.
For me, this lippie is the PERFECT nude shade. (I'm a neutral skin tone...wear Nars Sheer Glow in Santa Fe for ref) It has enough pigment to show up, but still gives that "nude" look. Yes, it's rather dry. But I found that even though it's dry, it gives a nice velvety appearance, and wears decent on my lips without drying them. (and my lips tend to be dry) Best of all, it doesn't bleed off my lips, even without lip liner.
So many "nude" lipsticks wash me out, or have too much shimmer, or look too muddy on me. This is the perfect balance of pink & neutral wtihout being brown/muddy. It's not the BEST texture, but its definitely not the worst. and for $1.99 I am thoroughly impressed with how good it is. I like this much better than some of the $$$$ lippies I have.
Biggest con...the packaging is so stupid! (this is the reason I didnt' give it 5 lippies) You can't twist it all the way down, and the flimsy cap comes off easily, so I'm scared it will break off at some point. But for the price, no biggie....I'll just buy another :) Hope they keep this color around.
The bestttt !!!! Great nude lipstick ! Goes on very well I am a fan of matte lipsticks and this gives that effect awesome !
LOVE!!!! ♥ I first saw this lippie on the Instagram page of one of the top MUAs. It was a beautiful color on her, but we all know how it goes when we get a product home and it doesn't look the same when we try it. Not this lipstick! I just got it yesterday, tried it and absolutely love it!! I am a chocolate-toned woman (NC50/MAC) and it's just perfect - not too pink, but not too brown - somewhere in the middle of both. I like it better than some of the nudes that I own from MAC. I will absolutely repurchase this lipstick and have been telling my friends about this perfect nude. Wet n' Wild struck gold with this one! :)
