A pretty coral peachy pink very frosty but that's what makes it pretty. It is like Mac bombshell but better more thicker applies smoother and shows up without having to put10 coats

This lipstick is possibly the one thing I cannot live without. Mascaras come and go, blush fades, and hairspray fails, but THIS LIPSTICK is forever. Well, maybe not forever, I mean it's not suuuuper long lasting, but in my heart, forever for sure! If this is ever discontinued, I will mourn its passing until I pass, and I'm not even kidding.

Let me illustrate the many ways I love WnW Dark Pink Frost:
First - the color. It's the perfect blend of a gorgeous cool toned pink, neither bright and bold nor pale and washed out, just the exact color I wish my lips actually were, with a subtle hint of gold shimmer to keep it from looking too cool. I've been wearing this for about 10 years, and I will say that when the packaging was most recently revamped I think they also added in a bit more multi-tonal shimmer, which I like. It's barely noticeable. This color goes with anything - no-makeup makeup, smoky eyes, winged liner, it's just enough color to bring my lips to life without making them the center of attention.
Second - the formula. It's creamy, silky, and relatively long lasting. I tend to reapply more often than I probably need to, because I like the way it feels so much. I do notice though, that if I don't use something hydrating on my lips underneath (Lip Medex is my go-to) they do dry out in the winter as this is not hydrating enough on its own. Also - it does sometimes leave behind a bit of a pink stain, but I don't mind that, considering I wear this pretty much 99% of the time. And it is gone when I wash my face and remove makeup later anyway, so really it's a non-issue.
Last - the price. At full price it is 99c in CVS and Walgreens where I live. I often get this when it's on sale buy one get one 1/2 off, so I rarely pay full price. And seriously, for what is my favorite makeup product ever, 99c is so great I sometimes can't believe it! I hope WnW makes this color forever and ever, because that's how long I'll be wearing it.

This has a really nice creamy formula. Frosty pinks usually make me look quite washed out, but this one didn't. Really can't beat the price.

Under a buck at the drugstore, the very literally named Dark Pink Frost is definitely worth checking out. On me it's a deep shimmery rose, incredibly flattering and pretty in a soft way. It's creamy and almost opaque. I like to blend it into my lips well with a finger - with this application your lips look just-bitten, plush, and illuminated. It's not too garish if you blend it out. Wears well too. It sinks in, so if your lips start to feel naked and dry, apply some balm and it's all good.

This color may look and feel dated to you, but sheered/blended out it looks almost identical to the NARS Rikugien pencil on my lips...without the price tag and annoying sharpening. Wear it when you'll be out in the sun, your lips will catch the light ;)

This is a golden gilt mauve frost on me. It's so pretty & unique! It's not too OTT frosty nor turn whitish. This color & Breeze are my top 10 frosts. I love frosts grew up on them have always loved them I'm waiting for this matte lip thing to pass. This lipstick is a gem for $0.87!! It goes on so creamy. Don't be afraid of frosts they can be made to look good! This really highlights ur mouth. Can be used w MegaSlicks lipgloss for extra frostiness. Some people think frost looks cheap but I don't think that at all! It is how u balance out the rest of ur makeup.

WHOA. Amazed by these lipsticks!

Packaging: Simple black tube with a clear cover and name sticker on the bottom. Nothing fancy, but looks nice and works well. Try not to store these upside down, as they roll and smush themselves down on the cap. It's not an issue for me though.

Formula: Ah-MAZING! SOOOOOO impressed by this formula! Smooth, creamy, (but not overly creamy where they slide around and feel gross on the lips. Consistency is neither too thin or too thick.) very moisturizing, and long lasting. Gorgeous formula!

Longevity: Lasts about 6 hours until I notice fading. Very impressed.

Scent: These smell slightly like cherries. Not overpowering at all, almost undetectable.

Pigmentation: Beautiful! Fully opaque 1-2 swipes.

Seriously, CAN NOT go wrong. $0.99 for a luxury quality lipstick? Yes please! My favorite color has to be Dark Pink Frost. Stunning, unique rose pink with gold reflects. Definitely give these a try!

I recently picked this up for $0.79 cents at Rite Aid, and it's a definite winner. The name is kind of a misnomer, because it isn't very dark or frosty. It's actually a medium shimmery pink. I really love the color because it's well balanced. It's not too warm. It's not too cool. It's not too dark. It's not too lights. It's not too bright, but it's not a nude. I know I'll wear it a lot. The creamy formula is also great. It feels nice on my lips, but the wear is decent. I want to buy a backup right away!

This is a nice lipstick the packaging of course is cheap but you can't expect much for .99 cents anyhow this color is nice it is a good dupe for MAC's creme de la femme and fabby and I own both it is a bit slicker on the lips then the other two I mentioned but it is shiny and it is very nice I would recommend if you dont want to spend the 16.00 for MAC.

I should have seen "frost" and ran. It has a deionize shimmer to it. I don't like shimmer in my lipsticks... I also noticed it makes my lips feel a little dry

My skin is fair yet has never been flattered by white and silver shimmer, satin, frost or metallic finishes in lipsticks. A few years ago the tide turned and gold-satin finishes became more prevalent.

When it comes to gold-finish lipsticks, I just can't help but buy & try. I own L'Oreal's "Kerry's Rosewood" (pale nude-lilac with fine gold shimmer), Rimmel's "Coral Spark" (a gold-flecked orange-coral that looks nearly invisible on), Milani's "Sugar Glaze" (a frosty nude-peach with a gritty feel and great staying power), Avon's Ultra Color "Frozen Rose" (a delicate peach-mauve with a fine gold shimmer), Avon Ultra Color Rich "Sparkling Warm Rose" (discontinued warm pink-gold, somewhat sheer, great for layering) and this: Wet 'n Wild Silk Finish "Dark Pink Frost", #502A. Honestly, I left this one in a makeup container still wrapped for over a year, thinking it was too similar to what I already owned. And yet for as many of these lipsticks as I own, they inevitably seem a bit too pale offering too little color contrast against my skin tone.

Although Wet 'N Wild is inexpensive, I rarely buy their lip colors because I don't like the scent (bad tasting, too!), the fact that they are made in China, and the fact that the packaging doesn't hold up even by bargain-brand standards (the lids splinter, inevitably). And yet I must admit: As gold-satin shades go, Wet 'N Wild's Dark Pink Frost is among the better ones I have tried a MLBB shade for me. Lightweight and surprisingly moisturizing, it is a pink-mauve color that while still subdued has an elegant golden finish without any gritty glitter to create the effect.

One reason I failed to appreciate this color for so long has to do with the name. It isn't particularly dark nor frosty white at all. Consequently, I feel it would be better named "Gilded Lilac". Poor choice of name or not, I hope Wet 'N Wild continues to manufacture this lip color. Wet 'N Wild Dark Pink Frost is most definitely a classic, a high-end color at a low-end cost.
