Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick Review & Swatches

Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick blind date

Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick (.99 cents) is a cheap thrill you really have to pick up. From my understanding the Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick packaging and formula has gotten a revamp for Spring 2015. I’ve never tried the original formula but it has gotten some great raves.

Recently, when I saw a display with the newly revamped Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick I decided to give a try and I’m so glad I did because it’s a great little beauty budget pick up!

Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick used to come in silver barrel with a clear top but now comes in a simple black plastic tube with a clear top. The packaging isn’t anything to write home about and the lipstick doesn’t swivel all the way down which is very annoying as I keep shaving off a chunk of lipstick each time I put the lid back on.

Aside from the quirky packaging I must say this is a fab little formula. The texture reminds me of a lightweight lip balm as it has an easy almost slick glide across lips with a lightly hydrating feel and a slight sheen finish. It wears very comfortable on my drier lips and it looks smooth, soft, and even. I tried Blind Date and it was very nicely pigmented. This is a vampy plum berry shade which normally would look bad on me but the intensity of the pigment is just right and the softer formula seems to make the shade more wearable and softer on my lips.

What’s really pleasant is the formula wears long and remains very moist through the wear so my lips felt nourished through the wear. I saw about four to five hours from the shade without it migrating or fading away and as I said it remained very pleasantly moist for the first three or so hours!

Yeah, the packaging isn’t anything to write home about but the Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick formula is a pleasant little dollar surprise! I’d highly suggest picking up a few shades! The formula is very, very nice.

    Thats a great color! Putting it on the list. Plus if it’s ugly on me, it’s only a buck. Gotta love that and the formula sounds nice. It’s so hard to find a decent WnW selection close to me. I’m still jonesing to find all that new Fergie stuff and that new primer you reviewed.

    • Isabella Muse

      they have like 44 shades angel so if this doesn’t work you’re bound to find one that does 😀 Walgreens.com has the primer and a lot of the Spring releases including these 😀

  • Fancie

    I really wish WNW would make it so their lipsticks swivel all the way down because it is super annoying to keep accidentally destroying a lipstick you like. Almost heart breaking lol. I haven’t tried any of the Silk Finish lipsticks yet but I recently picked up a couple that I’ll be trying very soon. I hope I like them so I can go back for this shade. I love how it looks on you!!

    • Isabella Muse

      thanks Fancie! 🙂 yeah, annoys the eff out of me! Every time I replace the cap I take a slice of lipstick with it grrr!

  • Katherine T.

    Oh, that’s so gorgeous! I will have to try this new formula. For $1 each, I could buy all 44 shades and it would still be cheaper than 1 Tom Ford lipstick!

  • Kyla

    What’s the scent like? i’ve tried the original ones and the scent just irritated me!it would be amazing if there was little to no scent to these….cause then brb going to the drugstore!

    • Isabella Muse

      it’s kinda some sort of plastic vanilla fragrance to my mouth kyla!

  • reen

    looks pretty on u! I haven’t tried “silk finish” yet, but I have a few of the “megalast” lipsticks and love them all! especially the shade “spiked with rum”!

  • Alessandra

    That color is lovely! This is one of those, “I feel totally crappy, so I’mma buy me some makeup” things that you just CANNOT feel bad about, since it’s a freaking dollar. Need.
    Thanks Isabella!

    PS: It looks really nice on you!

    • Isabella Muse

      thanks girl 😀 I agree, like how can you feel bad about a buck!? 😀

  • Lisa D

    Just picked this up at RiteAid 40 percent off a buck! It’s very pretty. I am wearing it with just a little sparkle gloss over it and it’s really pretty. Very pigmented!

  • Christine Joy Luikuo

    I have tried the old version of Silk Finish. It wears comfortably but the color I chose did not suit me so I gave to my mother. I’d like to purchase this one soon. =)

  • Hez

    I’m excited to hear they re vamped a bit. I love walking out of the store with a pile of different colors for CHEAP. Whop! So fun. I did get bleeding and yea it gets all in the tube. But hey.. Fun colors.. A fab time in The store. I will deffo try these Musey! 😄

  • Randie

    I just bought this in the very pretty shade Sunset Peach yesterday,but it’s a very greasy formula and it’s really more like a lip gloss than a lipstick.LA Colors makes a much better 1 $ lipstick that has vitamin E and aloe and it does get slightly drying after an hour but it says on for hours and isn’t greasy and thinner like Silk Finish lipstick.

  • Lilliana Vittoria

    I bought two of these yesterday at walgreens. 15 mins aflame and whats up doc? and I have to say that these are the best lipsticks to have as staples FOR THE PRICE! .99 cents?! That’s the price for a good durable formula?! SIGN.ME.UP! They also have an amazing array of shades, I am determined to purchase all of them, lol. A lot of people complain about the new packiging, but honestly I find that this new packaging is a lot better than the old silver one, because at least the black one makes sort of a clicking sound when you close it that way you know for sure if its safely closed.

  • Ayman

    Wow….That shade look so much great on you and your eye makeup looks so fabulous….Can you tell me what eye liner you have used on your eyes???

  • Belle

    I wore this color today! Have you tried any of the other shades? I’m usually scared of frosty finishes, but I’ve found that some of the shimmer shades here are actually quite flattering.

    I recommend giving Blushing Bali (natural peachy pink), Dark Pink Frost (MAC Creme de la Femme dupe), Hot Paris Pink (bright warm pink creme), and Java (tan nude with slight shimmer) a try! Hot Paris Pink and Nouveau Pink remind me of the Catrice Luminous Lips lipstick you reviewed a few months ago.

    • Isabella Muse

      I have! one of my favs is Cherry Frost! Such a great red 🙂 thanks for the recs Belle! Going to check those out!

  • lala

    I agree with your review! I have about 20 of these and10 of the taller skinnier ones lol I forget what they’re called! they are great for a buck and cvs does buy 2 get 1 free sometimes. that’s how I stocked my collection lol some fave colors are fuschia with blue pearl, retro pink, and dark wine.
