I first tried out one of these liquid catsuit matte lipsticks from Wet n Wild a few months back, and although it wasn’t my favourite Wet n Wild lippy, I did quite like it. The shade and pigment were both nice and the lasting power wasn’t bad either.
Today’s shade is a paler shade, a kind of nude peach with a pastel note to it, and the first thing I noticed was that the pigment wasn’t as good in this as it was in the previous shade I tried, Give Me Mocha.
When I first applied it, it didn’t have an opaque finish and was quite wet in texture, meaning it dragged the colour rather than allowing it to blend easily. To try combat this, I let it dry in, then reapplied a few layers to build up the colour but it didn’t quite have the finish I was hoping for.
I don’t remember the consistency being quite so wet the first time I tried this, but even though it was wet, it did still have a nice feel to it. It left my lips feeling smooth, and didn’t dry them out during the day as I wore it.
As I quite liked it the first time around, I was a little disappointed with this one today. Had the formula been a little creamier, I think I would have been happier with it and I also think the paler colour may have had an impact on how good the pigment was. It’s a shame because I had high hopes for it this morning.
