Let's Chat about the Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick
On a total impulse during my last trip to Walmart I ended up purchasing a few of the Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick shades. These were $0.93 each so they’re definitely a steal, but, I have really mixed feelings about these. These are reformulated from when they were in silver packaging way back when and I remember not being impressed with those at all, which is why I had higher hopes for these. But, I think there’s still a lot of room for improvement-here’s the shades I grabbed:

The three shades I purchased are Nouveau Pink, demi-matte; What’s Up, Doc?, demi-matte; and Fuchsia with Blue Pearl, satin.

These are very strange formulas. Nouveau Pink and What’s Up, Doc? are both underperforming, they’re patchy and uneven. But, Fuchsia With Blue Pearl is a winner, it’s a creamy full coverage formula. But, it also looks nothing like the bullet, you would think Fuchsia with Blue Pearl would have a purple finish with blue pearl, but it’s actually just a straight up fuchsia shade. Pretty, but doesn’t exactly come out what you would think!

Overall I highly recommend researching swatches online before trying these-look for ones that have a creamier formula. I even put all of these on top of a little lip balm so there should have been no reason why the first two are uneven, unless it’s a poor formula.

Have you tried these? Have any shades to recommend?

Thanks for reading,

    I have one of these and it’s okay. More like a tinted lip balm rather than a lipstick.

      Really? I found the three I bought to be quite pigmented and full coverage, perhaps there are some formula variations!

    The color payoff looks the best with Fuchsia with blue pearl. I always look at the inexpensive lipsticks in the hopes that formula would be good, but it looks like there were a couple misses here unfortunately.

      Agreed, the fuchsia shade is definitely my favorite. I just with the other two had slightly more even formulas, because they really are lovely shades!
