Hey all beauty geeks!!! Yes, another pink lipstick!!! I love pink lipsticks. In fact, it was my ‘tadap’ for finding one particular shade of pink that started me on this track of exploring makeup. 😉 So, I owe my few makeup skills to these pink lipsticks. Today’s review is special for another reason. Wet N Wild Silk Finish Lipstick in Nouveau Pink is the cheapest lipstick I own and is definitely one of my favorites among the likes of MAC, UD, Stila, etc. Read further to know more about this amazing lipstick. 🙂

My take on Wet N Wild Silk Finish Lipstick in Nouveau Pink: ‘Do not go by appearances ‘ is the motto of this lipstick. 🙂 The packaging is quite cheap-looking and is not at all sturdy. I would not have even looked at this lipstick, had I not heard raving reviews about it. It comes in a white lipstick case with a transparent cap. The lipstick bullet does not go back all the way down, so there is a chance you might scratch the lipstick bullet while closing the cap. But, because of this, the color is visible and helps in finding the lipstick when required. The lipstick is a vibrant shade of bright pink, leaning towards magenta pink. The lipstick is definitely cooler toned but looks equally good on fair as well as deeper skin tones. In fact, this is my savior on beachy holidays when I tan badly and all other lipsticks wash me out. 🙁 The shade brightens the whole face in an instant. It is one of those colors that you can just slap on in hurry and get away without any other makeup. It also makes my teeth look whiter. 😉 (And no, I don’t have yellow teeth. I said ‘whiter’ and not white. 😉 )
Most of the lipsticks in this range are frosty. Thank God, this one does not have a single trace of frost and is out-and-out creamy. The lipstick has a buttery smooth texture and glides on the lips. It does have a glossy shine to it. The lipstick does not feel heavy on the lips and at the same time, hydrates the lips. The color is pigmented like crazy. Just one swipe is enough for saturated color on your lips. And this ‘gift-to-the-‘wo’mankind’ stays on for very long. It can even stand some eating and drinking. It comfortably lasts for 5-6 hours on my lips. The lipstick has a slight ‘lipsticky’ smell to it.
