Does anyone else get slightly embarrassed to admit that they like Wet n Wild products? I do. This is a brand that you pick up when you are like 13 years old because it’s the only thing you can afford with your allowance.
When I started out wearing makeup as a wee little one, my signature lip was Wet n Wild’s burgundy lipstick. Yes, at 12, my signature lip was a bold burgundy. (This was in 1997, so totally acceptable, right?)
After I became more knowledgeable about makeup, and MAC was becoming more popular, I forgot about Wet n Wild for quite a while.
I ventured into the Walgreen’s near my home a while ago and decided to check out Wet n Wild’s Fergie line, when I spotted my new favorite drugstore lipstick. WET N WILD MEGA LAST LIP COLOR! I purchased two shades that time: Just Peachy, and Think Pink.
The color payoff on these lippies is excellent. What you see in the tube is the exact color you are going to get on your lips. They are matte without being too drying, and the price point lets you experiment with colors you want to try, but aren’t quite ready to shell out big bucks for.
I just picked up 3 more shades during my Rite Aid haul this past weekend. I got Wine Room, Vamp It Up, and Ravin’ Raisin. I always wear these with a lip liner, and a swipe of Chapstick or lip balm over the top, and they last quite some time. Yes, they kiss off, and leave ever present lip crescents on your cups, but for $1.99 I really have no complaints.
I will snap up all of the colors that are wearable for me. I can’t wait to try them all.
Do you use Wet n Wild? Do you believe there’s a stigma attached to the brand?
