Wet n Wild Color Icon Lipgloss Review & Swatches

Wet n Wild Color Icon Lipgloss

Wet n Wild Color Icon Lipgloss ($2.79) are a new brilliant, sparkly lip gloss that’s launched in six cocktail inspired shades with the new Wet n Wild Venice Beach Summer 2015 Collection.

I’m happy to see Wet n Wild is doing some new LE Color Icon Collections. Don’t get me wrong the run with Fergie has been fun but I really feel that collections like this is really where Wet n Wild excels. Budget friendly, fun product releases, and pretty shades are always what I associate with Wet n Wild’s limited edition and I really feel like the Venice Beach Summer 2015 Collection bring it especially with these new Color Icon Lipglosses!

Ok, so sadly you probably don’t need ever single shade of Wet n Wild Color Icon Lipgloss but at under three bucks each you might still want to indulge none the less in all of the six shades and I wouldn’t judge you in the least.

These come in a 0.12 oz round barrel with a white top! They might just remind you a little of MAC Dazzleglass packaging wise (they aren’t a dupe for that formula though). These have a paddle foot sponge applicator which makes application a total breeze. Sensitive users will be happy to hear they have absolutely no flavor or fragrance.

I love the formula! These aren’t sticky, nor are they tacky in the least. I find the texture very moist and pleasant on my lips with a nice hint of shine. They quite remind me of a jelly or a gel gloss as the texture is thin yet has a jelly-like feel that hugs lips in a nice hydrating feel. Although in the packaging they have a good deal of sparkle they aren’t gritty nor do they come across with a major disco ball finish, I find the shimmer is very subtle and pretty on lips. The pigment varies from shade to shade but out of the five shades I hauled most all of them looked identical on my lips were more of a clear gloss. I found they provide a very subtle tint on my lips but it wasn’t terribly noticeable which is why you probably don’t need to haul EVERY single shade. The best shades for color payoff were Lying on Sand-Gria and Will You Bloody Mary Me? I find the finish is subtly sparkle with a nice high shine but as I said they don’t provide a ton of color sadly.

One thing that annoyed me is the color names aren’t printed on the barrel, there’s merely a number on the bottom of each gloss. The name of the glosses is printed on a removable wrapper but once you toss it out you won’t know the names. This is a little irritating to me.

All in all Wet n Wild Color Icon Lipgloss is a nice lightweight formula that provides a nice sparkly shine on lips. The wear is shorter at around two hours and unfortunately, these provide the subtlest of tints but if you’re looking for some light and shiny with a hint of shimmer these are just perfect!

Wet n Wild Color Icon Lip Gloss is available now at drugstores (I saw them at Walgreens and Harmons).

I purchased this item.

    OOh, I saw these at Walgreen’s the other day and was on the fence about them, but now I think Mai Tai will be the shade of the summer for me!

      They have a very nice texture! Unfortunately not a ton of pigment or long wear but for lightweight shine and subtle shimmer they really are worth a pick up!

  • Simone

    I’ll probably pick up “will u bloody marry me?”. I really love the names of these, so cute! When I wear a red matte, and it starts getting gross and dry midday I like to apply a gloss on top, these look good for that!

    You are correct in saying that we don’t need every single one of these but did I buy every single one of these? Yes, yes I did ( You said you wouldn’t judge ๐Ÿ˜‰ They are just downright fun for summer and actually perfect for me as I like sheer, glossy, sparkly lipgloss for summer. I agree, they are very comfortable and do not have any smell or taste which is also a bonus. Nice, jelly-like shine. Actually got a few compliments today while wearing Zinny Dippin’. Love them!

    • Isabella Muse

      yay carol! glad to hear! They were so cheap why not right?! ๐Ÿ˜€

        I love them,I did the same bought every color. What I like the most is the brush is soooo soft and light not too sticky. I want to keep applying every 6 hours.

    I only have one butter gloss and one Victoria’s Secret lip gloss in my collection, so I may just have to pick one of these up! I’m torn between Mai Tai buy you a drink and Zinny Dippin’. Has anyone tried Appletini for your eye? I’m curious how that would come off on the lips.
