Review Overview

Silk Finish Lipstick is Wet ‘n’ Wild’s most opaque lipstick, but also its greasiest. The wide shade selection has a nice stain, helping to keep the color around longer, but this is also greasy enough to immediately bleed into any lines around the mouth. If that’s not an issue for you and you want full-coverage color, the price is tough to beat!

Brand Overview

Wet 'n' Wild At-A-Glance

Strengths: Inexpensive, good tinted moisturizer with sunscreen; some attractive bronzing powders; mostly good eyeshadow and lipstick options.

Weaknesses: Unimpressive concealers; large assortment of average to poor eyelining products; the mascaras do little to impress; some lip products suffer from the inclusion of irritants; the makeup brushes.

Wet 'n' Wild is one of the few cosmetics companies around that prides itself on being extraordinarily cheap, although the prices have increased across the board since we last revisited this brand. But don't let its hokey name and pre-teen marketing tactics deter you, because there are some great options available, and the packaging has improved in almost every category. The best-performing products will seem like steals, while the less impressive to horrible products will quickly have you thinking, "you get what you pay for." It is not very often that a line offers such a procession of clear-cut winners and dismal losers, but once you know what to focus on, you won't get soaked by Wet 'n' Wild. This line is available in most major drugstores across the country, and, like most drugstore lines, does not offer testers. Interestingly, the selection of Wet 'n' Wild in Canadian drugstores tends to be better than what U.S. shoppers will find.

Pleasant surprise!

I like lipstick that is not drying, but not super glossy/sticky either. I like to buy drugstore products for cost savings but am pretty picky and return anything I don't like. I bought this lipstick in Cherry Frost (red w/ blue undertones) and also in Breeze (nude). It is creamy and goes on beautifully. I was surprised how much I liked it! It was on sale at Walgreens for $.69. Really. There were only a few colors that appealed to me, but if you are on a budget, this is a nice option!
