Wet n wild is one drugstore brand which is awesome in quality and insanely affordable, specially their eyeshadow palettes. I’m eyeing their 8 shadow palettes so desperately but it’s always sold out here and online they charge attrocious shipping…. like, its seriously so annoying (read that in the Kardashian tone ;))

My Experience with the WnW lipsticks: First things first- these are soooooo pigmented.. I mean these are actually what we call “one-stroke-color”. Also they are so moisturizing and light weight. pretty good color payoff and all are opaque.It is as good as some high end lipsticks and I was pleasantly surprised. the lasting power is about 3-4hours and after that it fades to a stain 🙂 the lighter shades vanish though. Several of the shades have a frosty finish to them, and frost just isn’t my thing. specially the pink looks like “Chameli”
The one thing I did not like is that the frost makes the lippie look cakey sometimes. kinda flaky. Also the lipsticks come wrapped in those annoying drug information. it was such a task to remove those umpteen stickers and it also left the lipsticks sticky. I like the actual packaging of the lipsticks though. but for some reason I guess these days almost all the drugstore lipsticks have similar packaging- revlon colorstay, maybelline 16hr ones and now these.
– superbly pigmented.
– Very light weight.
– Creamy and moisturizing.
– 14 shades available.
– No smell or taste.
– They are great for about $3
– The lipstick doesn’t go all the way down in the tube, so it might break sometimes.
– SOme of them are so frosty you wouldnt want to wear them 🙁
– The protective shield with the content list is so difficult to remove, its just irritating.
Verdict: They are like ok… but then just that. quite comparable to any normal lipsticks available in the market.. but for the cost, I’d recommend to get at least 2 🙂
