I was at the drugstore the other day looking for some fun new lip colors to play around with, and I discovered Wet N Wild’s new line of $1 lipsticks! I knew I was going to be getting some right there, but I couldn’t decide on the colors! So I closed my eyes and asked my friend to grab me a couple colors that I wouldn’t usually wear! Here’s her picks!
First up we have the shade Dark Wine. This is a color that I would wear any day, plums are my favorites to wear! (Check out my post of my favorite purple lip colors here!) But as for the other two, I was a little hesitant…they are an orangey-coral shade titled What’s Up Doc and a dark, purple-black color called Vamp It Up. I tend to veer away from corals in fear of looking washed out, and I wouldn’t wear black lipstick usually unless it was Halloween! However, I tried to keep an open mind as I tried them on.
I was expecting great things of this line, and I was not disappointed! The colors are a little sheer, but they’re easy to build up, apply like a dream, and don’t dry your lips out! This beautiful deep maroon wine shade is one that I see myself wearing day-to-day as well as for a night out.
I was wary of this coral/orange shade because I wasn’t sure how well it would suit my skin tone, but it actually wasn’t too bad! The bright color is perfect for summer, and actually matches my swimsuit really well 🙂 It did require a few coats to get the even color I wanted, but for just $1 I really can’t complain!
This last one was the most unusual for me, and I’m still not sure how I feel about it. The lipstick only required one coat, but I’m not sure when I would wear this shade! Any ideas?
