Naming this a lip lacquer is inaccurate because it is really a lightweight cream lipstick—albeit a smooth-textured one that gives some department store cream lipsticks a run for their money. Application is smooth, coverage and color intensity moderate, and this sets to a soft cream finish that doesn’t readily move into lines around the mouth or require frequent touch-ups. The soft shimmer shades are most attractive, and for the price, you may want to try a few! One more plus: this lipstick is fragrance-free!
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.
