wet n wild | 'cashmere' silk finish lipstick


my attention was brought to this product after seeing it on on coco's blog, and after seeing how stunning it looked on her i headed straight to amazon and started pricing up how much it'd be to get my hands on one of these seeing as wet n wild products aren't sold within the uk. a quick browse told me that i could get my hands on this lipstick for a little less than a fiver with postage included, which i thought was a fair price to pay for such a pretty, unique colour that i'd not seen anything like on the highstreet. 

the lipstick applies easily and is very moisturising on the lips, however the wear time isn't great and requires fairly frequent reapplication to keep the colour looking opaque – something i was expecting from a $1 lipstick, and i'd probably compare it to the MUA lipsticks. on its own i find the colour to be a little bit too metallic looking, so i like to apply it over a nude lipliner to mattify the colour and mute the sheen slightly, giving a dark lip which is a little different to the usual red/purple dark lips i like to wear, and perhaps a little more grown up looking.

although this isn't the best lipstick i've ever used i've really been impressed with the colour, and from a quick browse of other wet n wild lipsticks on amazon i've noticed that they have a really nice shade range which could tempt me to order a few more to try out in the future. i'd quite like to try out some more wet n wild's products now i know that they're fairly easy to acquire, so if you're a lover of wet n wild and have any recommendations for me, please feel free to leave them below!
