New at the Drugstore: Wet N Wild Velvet Matte Lip Color

I can't believe that it's almost been a month since I last posted about anything beauty related. Well, I have been doing some shopping and as always, I want to share my finds with you guys. With that said, I've been aware that Wet N Wild is coming out with a bunch of new products for the spring season. Unfortunately, I haven't seen all of them but I have spotted a few of their new launches. One of the new items in their collection is their Velvet Matte Lip Color product.

I was really excited to see these out on the shelves. The packaging is cute and the colors look pretty. As you can see from the pictures above, I grabbed four different shades: Nude Streak, Berry Tales, Lie Lack and Charred Cherry (top to bottom). I don't remember exactly how much I got them for but if I remember correctly, it was less than $6 a piece.

Now, let's get down to the nitty-gritty here- I really wanted to love it but I don't. The swatches are beautiful but when on my lips, it looks different. Also, the formula isn't as pigmented as I hoped it would be. It is very similar to how lip stains look. Once you eat something, you'll have to reapply so this isn't ideal for work. What I do like about it is that it is matte and it isn't drying. I'm most likely going to pass on these next time and just stick to the Megalast Lip Stick.
