Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Gel Lip Balm ($2.99) is a new lip gel lip balm that gives lips a sheer hint of color and a gorgeous glossy finish. Wet n Wild launched these new Perfect Pout Gel Lip Balms with their Spring 2017 Collection in seven yummy shades.
Here’s a look at my review and swatches.
I think we have firmly established I’m a lip balm junkie and even though I don’t need more (I have enough for all of to get through the zombie apocalypse) I still feel the need to try any and all new formulas that launch.
So, of course, I had to grab up Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Gel Lip Balm to see what the deal was. These delightful little lip balms come housed in simple black packaging with a clear lid that’s 0.17 oz in size. I had one minor issue with the packaging, the balm doesn’t swivel completely down. This drives me a little batty since I tend to take a chunk off my balm when replacing the cap if I’m in a hurry. Aside from that, I thought the packaging quite reminded me of Wet n Wild from back in the day. The balm has a certain vintage feel to it.
These are apparently Wet n Wild’s first gel lip balm. Honestly, it could be the first gel lip balm I ever tried even though I’m a lip balm connoisseur. I honestly I can’t think of any gel lip balms I have at the moment only gel lipsticks.
These are formulated with Avocado Oil and Vitamin E. The formula is very pleasant with a soft texture that’s definitely gel-like in consistency that applies easily on lips with a melt-y feel. They deliver a very nice burst of light hydration and a glossy finish with a pretty touch of color. I got the shade Tell, which was a milky nude peach that was fairly obvious on my lips so, there is pigment to be had here. I loved how glossy they made my lips yet remained lightweight and non-tacky or sticky. My lips are crazy parched right now and this formula was pleasantly hydrating through the wear. They had no fragrance or flavor.
All in all, Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Gel Lip Balm is a pleasant way to add color, shine, and most importantly moisture to lips on the cheap. At $2.99 each these are a nice little lip balm with a great formula.
