Everyone loves a shiny, glamorous and plumping lip color now and then. It's something that never goes out of style. But lately, matte lips have been all the rage. From the exclusive Kylie Lip kits, to ColourPop dupes, your online shopping bill can quickly add up when it comes time to ship out your favorite shades.
On the hunt for an easily accessible, good-quality matte lip, I ended up finding an impressive gem right where I usually happen to. You guessed it, the drugstore!
I've tried many matte lips in the past. From liquid, to creams, and even just plain pencils. The majority crack and leave unsightly edges that are difficult to touch up. Others plainly don't stay put.
But this one from Wet N Wild is one of my favorites. Upon applying, the liquid formula isn't too thick and cakey, which is great if you like to layer. It's comfortable; you can eat, drink, and talk like normal without that undesirable feeling of a heavy, crumbly mask resting on your lips.
As for color, it's fairly opaque and I find that I can pass with applying up to two layers total without any major cracking.
As for the color options, I find that they are a bit decieving in the bottle. The shade featured is "Rebel Rose," which appears to be a dull, dusty mauve. The on-skin appearance is similar though a bit of a deeper, richer mauve as pictured. I'm not complaining though; at the low price of $4.99, the result is undeniably beautiful.
If you're ready to rock the bold matte trend but don't want to stretch your wallet for your color-fix, be sure to check out Wet N Wild's collection to get the shade you deserve.
