Wet n Wild Cherry Frost Silk Finish Lipstick

Who even knew $1 lipstick was a thing? Doesn’t the idea of paying ninety nine cents for makeup anything make you cringe slightly or am I just a snob? I just think, “wait, what? A dollar? Skip! It must suck!”

But true story, my favorite red lipstick costs a $1! Or if you want to be technical it costs .99 cents thank you very much.

I’m talking about Wet n Wild Cherry Frost Silk Finish Lipstick! Which by the way has a slight frost finish! Gasp! I know! Frost! If you know anything at all about me you know I hate frost lipstick or eyeshadow anything.

I was mucking around with the Sims 4 recently, I blame Joe if you must know, see below! Anyway, I was mucking with the Sims 4 and the Sim I created totally had on a Cherry Frost-like Red Lipstick! Which, of course, made me haul it out to wear and I couldn’t help but think, “This cost me a buck and it looks stupid amazing on!” Vane, I know!

Yeah, so these are the days of my lives when I’m picking our lipsticks because my Sim is rocking the same shade. Twinsies! I swear there’s a capital L out there with my name on it (LOSER!).

None the less, do not snub the dollar lipstick my friends! If you’re looking for a wearable shade of cherry red this is totally worth a pick up plus hey, if it doesn’t work for you, you won’t feel bad about tossing it in the trash!

I know there are least some of you out there already using the shade.

What are your thoughts on it?

Do share!

P.S. You know what else is worth watching from Joe’s channel? The shower simulator video and the Five Night at Freddy’s one too!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    First of all, that color is beautiful on you. Another W&W product is a Holy Grail product for me. It’s the lip liner pencils in Brandywine (color 666). They are $0.99 and often on sale at CVS for BOGO free. It’s the perfect neutral color and I line and fill in my lips with it. It’s just a great neutral color with a little bit of oomph. I wear this color every day. Some days I will put Clinique Black Honey over it, or I leave it be. It’s just a great little pencil in a universally flattering shade.

      thanks Stacy ๐Ÿ™‚ <3! Going to check out Brandwine! I don't line my lips but I do fill with lipliner...curious minds as the color sounds like something I'd like ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Michelle Flamingo

      My go-to lipliner is also my favorite one. It is WetnWild Willow, #712. This has been my go-to and fave lipliner for about 22 years. ๐Ÿ˜€

      I also have #666 like you have, but it is a bit too light for me. I do use it when wearing no other makeup or when I want the lightest makeup look possible.

      And yes, they are so inexpensive!

      • Michelle Flamingo

        oops, I was mistaken. The one too light for my regular daily use is a discontinued shade.

        #666/Brandywine is one I do have, and I have a quantity of 7 of bc I got them when a store was going out of business. I got them for 25 cents each. ๐Ÿ™‚

        But my fave for my skin tone is Willow/#712.

    That lipstick is not bad for a buck but I’m here to say that the let’s play channel is EVERYTHING. This is the lets play I didn’t know I desperately needed in my life until now! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Isabella Muse

      haha enjoy. Joseph is such a sweetheart and makes such fantastic vids ๐Ÿ˜€ he’s your online BFF! LOL!

    Ugh I hate to admit that I too snub wet n wild and brands that carry cosmetics in the $1 – $8. I don’t know why , as there are a lot of wonderful gems for super cheap , like that gorgeous red you are wearing! I do love the hunt for gems at the drugstore tho. But I tend to favor loreal, cover girl, milani, Maybelline. I really need to venture into wet n wild, e.l.f., hard candy etc…..

    I just got this myself! I drool over it, because I have a dupe of the UD Gwen Stefani Firebird lipstick from the .99 W&W lipstick, wear time and consistency is the same for me! If I’m not mistaken, isn’t the Cherry Frost frost gold? So pretty.

    • Isabella Muse

      is it gold do you think!? I typically hate frost but this works somehow! ๐Ÿ˜€ gotta love a good dollar dupe ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Rachel R.

    Wet n Wild lipsticks are great, and that’s a fantastic shade. No shame in only paying a buck. I think I own all the Silk Finish, Megalast, and Fergie lipstick from them (barring a few LE shades). It’s hard to go wrong!

    • Isabella Muse

      agreed! plus for a buck they are actually quite lovely!

  • Linda

    It’s $5 on Amazon, but with free shipping, so I pulled the trigger. Thanks Muse.

  • Amanda

    I adore Cherry Picking! It’s so gorgeous and wears so well!

  • Zovesta

    DUDE, I swear that was the one I recommended to you way back when I first started following you!! It’s awesome though, isn’t it? ๐Ÿ˜€ You look great with it!

    • Isabella Muse

      Maybe!? ๐Ÿ˜€ if you did thank YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I love it hehe!
