This year I’ve been into lipsticks in a massive way. I can’t go into a pharmacy or shop for makeup online without buying at least one, I’m obsessed! I picked some Wet N’ Wild lipsticks a couple of months ago because they are matte (and I love matte) and they were cheap. I have to say I was actually really impressed.
‘This is basically our Magnum Opus of lipstick—it’s the one thing we absolutely MUST put on when we’ve got a cocktail party or black tie event. This 4-hour, longwearing lip color leaves a semi-matte cream finish in one stroke. Glides on easily with rich, velvety color that doesn’t cake, feather, or bleed. Made with hydrating skin-care ingredients: Hyaluronic Microspheres provide extraordinary adhesion to lips, an exclusive polymer complex offers cushion-like feel and texture, and natural marine plant extracts coenzyme Q10 and vitamins A & E help smooth lips.’
I picked up three colours, Think Pink, Pinkerbell and Sugar Plum Fairy. They’re all slightly different so I’ll go through them individually to give you an idea.
Think Pink is a pink that’s slightly nude. It looks more nude in the packaging but you can see from the swatch below it’s really pink. This glides on easily and is comfortable to wear all day. This one is said to be a dupe for Mac’s Crème Cup which is a favourite of Kim Kardashian.
Pinkerbell is a bright pink colour. The formula feels a bit different to the others. It doesn’t glide on as easily as the others and it does show any cracks or dry skin on the lips. In saying that, the colour is bright and fun and when I’ve worn this with a lip balm and these faults disappear. This one is said to be a dupe for Mac’s Viva Glam Nicki.
Sugar Plum Fairy is 100% my favourite. It’s a gorgeous plum (duh!) purple colour which is perfect for autumn. This glides on really easily and it’s extremely comfortable on the lips. This one is said to be a dupe for Mac’s Rebel.
I am so impressed by these lipsticks. They are very long lasting which is what I love in a lipstick because I am quite lazy with reapplying. I recommend applying a lip balm before these lipsticks just to prevent any drying. I didn’t notice any drying with Sugar Plum Fairy or Think Pink but I did with Pinkerbell. Because these lipsticks are so cheap applying a lip balm first really doesn’t bother me.
There’s so many colours available in this range with something to suit everyone. A lot of them are claimed to be colour dupes for Mac lipsticks so if you’re living on a budget them these lipsticks will be the perfect option for you.
I’ll definitely going out to buy some more because I think they are a must have in your collection. They are so cheap that you can buy more than one and they’re perfect to use for experimenting with different looks without breaking the bank.
I’m obsessed with reds so next on my purchase list will be Spotlight Red, Coral-ine and Purty Persimmon!
