Wet n Wild Metallic Liquid Lipstick Review & Swatches

Wet n Wild Metallic Liquid Lipstick

Wet n Wild Metallic Liquid Lipstick ($2.99) is a new lipstick that launched with the Wet n Wild Lost in the Wild Flowers Summer 2016 Collection. This is available in six shade selections and I’m unsure if Wet n Wild is keeping it on permanently or if it will be available for a limited time only.

I actually hate metallic lipsticks and metallic eyeshadows. I like them in theory! I just don’t like how they look on me. Occasionally, I do run across a metallic finish I like but it is very rare as most times metallic translates as frost to me or way too much shimmer. And metallic lipstick or gloss? Well, typically that makes me feel like I look like a robot. I wear it and suddenly I’m moping around like Marvin.

Unfortunately, Wet n Wild Metallic Liquid Lipstick is too much for this girl but if you have a tan or you’re a darker skin tone you might just be able to rock it. I picked up the shade My Tulips Are Sealed and I actually recommend this one because the shade is gorgeous! It’s a stunning replicate of NARS Orgasm and the perfect golden peach! I didn’t really like the metallic finish but if you add a little clear gloss you can sheer some of that finish away so you aren’t walking around with a robotic finish on your lips. Or you might just be ok and comfortable with metallics! In that case, no clear gloss required!

This formula is fairly thick but it applies easily but will drag and look a bit patchy on drier lips so prep well prior to application. I was able to get a super smooth finish when I applied Tarte Lip Saver Treatment Primer first. The lipstick is fairly heavy on lips but it wears comfortably enough without migrating or feather. I get about five hour of wear time but they the formula gets a little drier by hour three. The formula is more of a thicker gloss versus a lipstick but does have the pigment of one with a high, metallic finish. I detected no fragrance or flavor in the formula.

I look a bit silly in this finish without clear gloss as I stated above. It’s very workable with clear gloss though so if you’re as scared as metallic as I am you can indulge and just top with clear gloss to get a nicer finish!

All in all Wet n Wild Metallic Liquid Lipstick has a very nice consistency with excellent pigment with a good, solid wear. If you aren’t a fond fan of metallics you can still make these work but they do have a very hard metallic finish so be aware prior to purchase.

Wet n Wild Metallic Liquick Lipsticks are launching now at drugstores.

I purchased this item.

    Since these metallic liquid lippies are hard to pull off on their own, I like to take them and dab them on the center of my lips over another long wearing liquid lippie (any brand) without messing up the formula. This helps gives dimension and sparkle to the otherwise flat, matte finish all of them have!

    I kind of have a love-hate relationship with metallic lipsticks myself. I have one or two red ones, and a couple wine-colored ones. The Lipstick Queen one in Wine Metal I like, because it looks kind of velvety instead of metallic, but they never quite feel or look right on the lips when I wear them. The paler metallics always make me think of 1980s pearl finishes, too, which is maybe why I don’t like them so much?

    • Isabella Muse

      haha yes! I avoid the paler ones or gold because I do get that weird frosty pearl look! I feel like a character in Lace when I wear those lol! I have the same issues you’re so not alone!

  • Maria

    Muse the color looks so pretty on you. I have to check this out. Do you know which websites carry this? Thanks.

    • Isabella Muse

      Thanks Maria!

      Sadly none! It just launched at drugstores so might be a while before it is available online if at all!

    I don’t know why you think you silly. This lipstick is super cute on you! I ended up grabbing the purple one yesterday but now you’ve got me considering going back for this one to use on top of other liquid lipsticks. I didn’t think I’d like it but it looks like such a pretty shade for spring and summer

    • Isabella Muse

      aw thanks <3! 🙂 I really loved the purple but was scared I'd look weird in it!

  • Katherine T.

    Wow, that is a heavy, frosty metallic! Brings back memories of the ’80s LOL I had my eye out on the purple, hope it’s not toooo metallic

  • Stephanie G

    I just got 3 of these – love them! And Muse, I think it looks super cute on you!

  • Christy Peeples DuBois

    I usually do not care for frost at all but that color looks great on you, it honestly does.

    I am seriously on the hunt for these!! (Already checked two Walgreens near me) I picked up one of loreals new pro glosses which seemed like it was going to be very metallic from the tube, but as the name suggested- it was super glossy with a bit of that extra shine factor. May be the best of both worlds for you!

    • Isabella Muse

      mmm it does! I jeffree posted this and I was like oh looks like the WnW shade I have! He also has a highlighter in a similar shade launching 🙂 They don’t look like spot on dupes but they do look similar for sure!
