This is, by far, my favorite drugstore lipstick. It's creamy & dries to a matte finish. I have very full lips & I hate the look of gloss on them as it enhances them too much IMO. It is the perfect nude for me. For reference, I am NC 35-37. It is a pinky brown and I usually line my lips with a nude lip liner closest to my natural lip color. It lasts up to 5-6 hours on me if I don't do much eating or drinking. However, you do need to apply some lip balm prior to applying it and letting it soak in as this lipstick may dry out your lips. But for the price & the perfect color, I could deal with that. I went through a period of not being able to locate any at the local drugstores or walmart. So when I finally found it at walgreens, I bought back ups. The 2nd picture is what it looks like on me.
I bought this for 2.00 at CVS. I knew it would work. I wear nc40-nc42 and usually my nude l/s is Blankety. This is a little darker but still nude. It will not make you look washed out, which is something I noticed from 3+ coats of Blankety. I applied a little gloss and magic!
WnW 902C is a matte nude-tan, looks great on me, especially when
wearing orange (one of my favorite colors to wear). I moisturize
heavily before applying, and apply 902C thickly. Fabulous, and you can't beat the price. (NC25-30)
I love this color so much and I goes with my tan skin. Best lipstick ever! I wear this almost everyday. I wish the packaging was better....I still don't get how the lipstick always smudges on the cap. -_-
O...M...G... this is a great nude for dark skin tones! I've been looking for a perfect nude for my skin tone (NW45) but still not breaking the bank because I'm a broke law school student. I always knew that you could still look a million bucks without spending spending that much and this lipstick proves it. It's a matte so it's a bit dry but that's not a problem, just put on a lip balm or cocoa/shea butter beforehand (like I always do. Then I lined my lips with a soft brown lip liner then I put on the lipstick. If you want a bit of shine then pop in some lip gloss too. I was literally saying, "omg this is perfect" several times while staring at my lips in the mirror! Best of all, it's a good price. I got this at walgreens for $3.00. I've tried my sister's nude lipsticks from MAC (don't remember which one) and I kinda liked it, but liked it even less because of the price. This one though is perfect for me. If you have a dark skin tone and need a nude lipstick in your arsenal, then get this one.
i really love the formula of these lipsticks, i'm writing this review solely for the color. i'm somewhere around NC30 and this was hideous concealer lips on me when applied full on. when blotted it had an orangeish tone i hated. i've seen it look gorgeous on other girls and most people seem to love it, i just wanted to put my experience out there.
This is a great lipstick for an everyday look. The matte brown color goes great on many different skin tones, plus its creamy and doesn't dry out my lips. Its ultra cheap which is always a good thing. I would suggest going to a drug store because they have more of a variety of these lipsticks. Overall its a great lipstick especially when its topped with a great lipgloss.
This is the perfect lipstick. I'm considerably tanned (NC35) and this is my favorite lipstick to wear everyday... it's a nude, but barely noticable that you're wearing a lip product. It leaves you with a clean polished look. The formula is awesome.. dries matte but is still creamy. I always treat my lips at night so I'm sure if I didn't do that this lipstick would accentuate dryness. The packaging is awful, I don't even know how the lipstick smudges all over the tube, but for the price you can't complain, I'll definitely buy this again, I love wet n wild gems.
This is EXACTLY what I want in a lip product and I'm so excited that it performed up to my expectations! I wanted a nude color that would work for every day and did not have shimmer or too much of a pink tone. This exceeded that. I don't need to put balm underneath, it is moist and not cakey...it doesn't 'drag' on my lips. It also is pigmented and doesn't need a liner. The lasting power is great, and what I hoped for. I noticed it also makes my lips look fuller and feel plumper;maybe this is due to the 'hyaluronic microspheres' the website lists in the ingredients. Again, I love cruelty free companies and this company does not test on animals. Plus the price is affordable. Right now this is my favorite lip product I own. I would recommend to everyone and will buy again.
I have very little natural pigment in my lips. Without some color on them, I look like a corpse. So I like to keep product on them as much as possible. Reapplying every five minutes is a pain, obviously, so I'm always on the hunt for a good long wearing lip product. I've tried about every formulation there is. Some, even high end brands, are just horrible. Some are adequate, some are excellent. I'd put this squarely in the middle.
I like the color very much. It's not nude on me, because I'm so fair. But it is a fairly natural hue, without too much pink, which is a deal killer, as I am a warm complected redhead. It's not peach, but not brown either. I don't know exactly how to describe it, except to say that it's....lipcolored. Neutral, fresh, pretty and believable lip color.
The formulation is pretty good. It's not as drying as some I have found, and if you apply it sparingly, it doesn't crack and flake. But since it is a long wearing color, there is some dryness. Those who enjoy a matte finish could wear this solo, but I prefer to top it with a light gloss. It does wear a very long time, but it did finally wear off and it wore off in that peculiar way that long wearing lip color has; fading from the inside out and leaving a line of demarcation around the lips. There are several brands I use that don't do this and in general, I prefer them. BUT...for the price, it's a really, really good product.
It's definitely better than most DS longwearing lip products and certainly worth the $2.99 I paid for it. I like the color well enough that I can work with the drawbacks. Great little product!
