My Wet n Wild Lipstick Collection: Swatches + Review!

I don't know if it's because my bank account is emptier now-a-days or because I genuinely love these lipsticks (truth be told, it's probably a combination of both) but I seem to gravitating towards my Wet n Wild lipsticks more than others as of late.
Either way it spawned the making of this blog post so let's get into it, shall we?

Now, I know a lot of people hate Wet n Wild lipsticks because of the packaging. And I completely understand that; the product sticks out of the bullet and makes capping the lipstick a hassle, it's made of plastic and looks like plastic, etc.
But really people?
You paid one or two dollars on this lipstick!! Of COURSE the packaging isn't going to be luxe.

Personally I care much more about the actual product (though, I admit, I'm a sucker for a pretty package) when I'm handing the cashier my nickels and dimes and BOY do Wet n Wild lipsticks out-perform their price tag!!

L - R: 902C "Bare It All", 522A "Dark Wine", 509A "Cinnamon"

I had only left the swatches on my hand for a second to go and grab a napkin and look at the stain they already left!! This means that while yes, you are going to have to reapply these lipsticks throughout the day (after meals), they'll leave a nice stain behind if you let them wear off with time.

Also, those swatches are a mere two swipes on the back of my hand so a little bit of product goes a long way with these for full opacity (that's what I call 'bang for your buck' kiddos).

 My lips sans any products

902C "Bare It All"

522A "Dark Wine"

 509A "Cinnamon"

As I'm sure you could tell by the individual packaging, Bare It All is a different line of lipsticks than Dark Wine and CinnamonBare It All is a matte finish while the latter two are more of a cream, though in my opinion neither formula differs in pigmentation or wear-time.
All three of these lipsticks are pretty bad about accentuating any flaky bits on your lips though, so do make sure to exfoliate before application.

Other than that, I'm not sure what else to say about these little guys!!
They really are the cheapest lipsticks I know of and I absolutely love each shade I own for different reasons. Each is soft on the lips, hydrating, and makes a statement depending on the look I'm going for. I really can't recommend these enough if you're looking for a cheap treat :)

Even Galileo was a bit miffed at all the attention I was giving to these lipsticks while photographing them hehe...

Have you tried out Wet n Wild lipsticks before?
Love 'em, hate 'em?
What's your favorite ultra cheap lipstick of choice?
Do share!!

  1. these look great! i've used nyc makeup before (.99 cent lipstick from walmart! what!) and it was pretty good. i haven't worn much in terms of lipstick lately, (too much hassle, too much making out to do) but you allllmost convince me to try them.

  2. These look so great on you! Awesome picks, I want to go lipstick shopping now! :)
