Now… when you saw “$2 lipstick”… did you immediately think, “What? From Wet N Wild or something?” because we all know that’s one of the cheapest (if not THEE cheapest) makeup brands out there. A lot of their stuff isn’t too great- let’s be honest. Their nail polish wears off in like, 3 seconds.

But oh what the f*ck?! The staying power of their LIPSTICK is bat shit crazy insane. As in, we don’t understand how a $1.99 lipstick is kicking the ass of some $20+ lip stains out there.

Wet & Wild Lip Stick Review-2
This lipstick claims to have “4 hour” staying power but it’s seriously more like 6 hours. Like New York writer, Karley Sciortino, hilariously put in an Into The Gloss interview:

“This is my thing—Wet ’n Wild lipstick costs $1.99 and it’s the greatest lipstick on Earth. I have a ton of colors. All my friends didn’t believe me and now they all thank me. Because they’re matte, they stay on forever. Sometimes if I’m wasted, I’ll pass out in them, and I’ll wake up in the morning and they’ll still be on.”

I straight up went to bed with it one night to see if it’d still be on the next day… excuse the lighting (obviously different from day to night) and the shitty cell phone quality!

But look at this! ^^NIGHT: I had all my makeup off… well, minus some smudged eyeliner. And then I put on the lipstick and went to bed!

^^MORNING: Color still there! (Spotlight Red) It faded a tiny amount and “settled” into lines a bit.. but did not smudge! At all! As my Grandpa would say: “Well I’ll be damned!” haha

Wet & Wild Lip Stick Review-4

Even the gals from Urban Bush Babes recommended it in their ITG interview. Claiming that it’s their go-to “low budget” lipstick.

This lipstick is meal tested too. Stays on for at least a meal!

Bottom line deets of this Wet N Wild Lipstick Review:
1. It’s a semi-matte formula. And honay– it’s thick. Talking heavily pigmented. To sheer it out we recommend putting on lip balm before and after. Or at least before.
2. It’s a bit drying- but nothing chapstick touchups didn’t fix.
3. Read the reviews of other people!

This lipstick was first recommended to VF by a reader (not sponsored)! LOVE hearing your guy’s recommendations. Have you guys tried this lipstick before or will be trying it in the future? What’s your go to long lasting lipstick?
