I was in the drugstore getting something I needed like milk or shampoo when I ran into new Wet N Wild products. I like Wet N Wild they are cheap and, for the most part, pretty decent products. I saw the new Wet N Wild Fergie Velvet Matte Lip Colors and I was pretty excited. Matte Lips are so in and it appeared that they had some very beautiful colors. I picked up four of these guys.
When I unwrapped the lipstick the first thing I noticed were that the colors were quite a bit different then what is looked like on the lid (I know this happens but it was like way off). Then I noticed that two of the four lip crayons were completely broken in half. Remember these were sealed. I went to swatch these and once again was disappointed. They are very sheer. I had to go over my swatch multiple times to get a decent color pay off. I still wanted to give these a chance. Plumgenue is a light plum. This was my favorite of the bunch. I felt out of the four this was the only one that looked ok on me. Pink Candy was a barely there pink. Timeless Chick is a mauvey rose. I think this is supposed to be an ode to the nude matte lip trend. This one I could make work and was somewhat close to the color on the cap. DJ Doll is a light coral orange. From the cap I was really hoping for a burnt fall orange. Every single one of these I had to layer and layer and layer. I don’t mind giving my lips a couple of passes to build up to the color, but this was going over my lips 20 times to get any color. Once I got to my desired color the lipsticks did not last long and wore off patchy.
I ended up taking all of these back. At 3.49 I did not feel like they were worth keeping. I may have kept Plumgenue just because I thought it was really nice once I got it on, but it was one of the ones that came out broken…. So I took them all back.
What was your experience with these? Any products been a dud for you lately?
