Wet n Wild Flights of Fancy Color Icon Lipgloss ($3.99) launched in five, limited edition shades for Summer 2018 with the new Wet n Wild Flights of Fancy Collection.
This isn’t a new formula as it’s been released a few times already in other collections such as the Pop! Coloricon Lip Gloss that launched in 2016. None the less it is a happy return as I find the formula quite lovely and welcome its return.
Wet n Wild Flights of Fancy Coloricon Lipgloss arrive in special edition packaging that has a pretty tropical bird and palm pattern decorating the cap (there are two color patterns which you can see below). Each of the glosses holds 0.12 oz of gloss and will set you back $3.99 per shade. The are actually a smidge bigger compared to past releases as some of the older ones I had were 0.11 oz in size. It’s not a lot of lipgloss but the price isn’t big either! I’ve expressed in past reviews these remind of MAC Dazzleglass packaging. They have a larger paddle sponge applicator for application and have no flavor or fragrance.
The formula is fairly thick with a lightly hydrating texture that provides a nice shiny finish and excellent pigmentation on my lips. Two of the five shades are a touch shade but even at their sheerest these still pack a pop of color that’s very noticeable on lips. The gel-like texture feels comfortable on my lips without being tacky nor sticky with a three hour wear.
There are so many shades I adore from this collection but not all of them performed perfectly. The stand out shades that performed best were Pout of Paradise, Shut the Pluck Up, and Love Bird Affair. These all applied with a smooth, even finish on my lips. The two that applied poorly were Featherless and Fly Gal. These shades fell into my natural lip lines and looks patchy and uneven no matter how many times I went over the color. This is such a shame because Featherless is a delightful pinky nude that I absolutely adored! I can doctor things up by applying clear gloss on top of the color to get it look smoother but on its own it looks streaky. One of the more unique shades that I loved was the warm orange shade called Pout of Paradise. I have to say I own a lot of lipgloss and lip colors but this shade is truly unique to my collection! I loved it!
All in all, this was a fabulous launch of colors! Honestly, if you can afford to spluge I’d say pick up all five! I realize some performed better than others but you can still doctor up the others with clear gloss and at $3.99 I won’t rant too much about the streakiness of the finish. I really enjoyed this collection.
