I first tried one of these liquid catsuit matte lipsticks from Wet n Wild over the Summer after reading lots of good reports about them on different social media channels. The first shade I tried Give Me Mocha, was a lovely caramel shade with gorgeous pigment so I had high hopes for today’s shade too.
In a nutshell, I really wasn’t disappointed by either the shade or pigment, and the soft coral tone was just lovely. It wasn’t as bright as most corals, but I quite liked the neutral feel of it, especially for an autumn day.
The colour payoff is brilliant and though it is a liquid formula, it’s not too wet meaning it has a nice creamy feel to it too. It blends well and doesn’t drag the colour like some liquid lipsticks, and once dry, has a lovely soft matte finish with excellent staying power.
I did find it got quite dry as the day went on, but not so dry that I disliked it which made all the difference. I needed to reapply it after eating, more to even out the colour than anything else as it did wear off a little after lunch. In saying that, it still held much better than I though it would so I didn’t mind.
Another thing I really like about this is the coverage it gives to the lips; when I first applied it I thought it might be a bit sheer but it actually dries in to give a fuller coverage than you’d expect.
I’ve really come to like these lipsticks and will definitely be wearing this shade again – I think it will be particularly nice in Spring too.
