Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Lip Scrub Review

Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Lip Scrub ($3.99) is a new, limited edition lip scrub that launched in two flavors with the Wet n Wild Flights of Fancy Summer 2018 Collection.

I swear when I got my hands on these I felt like I stepped back into 1986. These just feel, taste, and smell so retro. It reminded how and why I became obsessed with makeup as suddenly I was 8 years old again and smearing bubble gum roll on lipgloss all over my mouth from Wet n Wild was totally a cool thing to do. Remember those rollerball lipglosses? And the slide open tins ones too?

My makeup life was far similiar back than and a hell of a lot cheaper.

Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Lip Scrub are a pretty new and fun product for the brand. I can’t recall them every venturing into the realms of lip scrub and the release is a LITTLE bit odd since they Flights of Fancy Collection doesn’t have any long-wearing lipsticks in it. Sorry, I associate lip scrub with those god awful drying liquid lipsticks every loves so much.

None the less they are fun, funky, and in some ways fitting with the tropical jungle theme this collection has going on.

The scrubs are available in Citrus Elixir (orange) and Pecker Up (watermelon). They have a strong, delicious, synthetic orange and watermelon flavor that just brings me back to makeup days go by. I find them quite tasty. The jars are quite fun with a little orange and watermelon printed sticker on the cap.

I actually use lip scrub quite often so this purchase wasn’t all fun and games for me. I wouldn’t say the formula was the best I tried as it is a little dense and dry coming out of the jar and messy to use since you’ll get fall out with it due to the fact it doesn’t contain a whole lot of oil and the density of the scrub means you have big chunks flying around as you scrub. If you can get past the density of the product it does a nice job smoothing our lips and de-flaking them!

At $3.99 I’m not complaining and think they are a fun purchase! Not perfect by any means but usable! Do you need them? Not necessarily unless you’re running low on your favorite scrub but you’ll likely have a hard time resisting them.

Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Lip Scrub are launching now at drugstores or at ulta.com.

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.

    Remember those Wet n Wild lip gloss so from the 80s? I can still smell them. Thick, goopy, SUUUUUPER frosty… They tasted like middle school.

    Also, is the watermelon flavor maybe called Pucker Up? Although, I might like your name better

    • Isabella Muse

      LOL ;-D “They tasted like middle school…!” Ahh yes I know that feeling well! I can’t recall those lipglosses but I do remember the rollerball ones they had! I can close my eyes and still taste the bubblegum one! No Pecker Up lol! or at least that’s what the label says and the website lol! misprint!?

      • Jules

        OMG. That IS the real name… Now I’m giggling like I’m in middle school!!! And OOO those new blushes and primer water! Gonna have to stalk them out at the Wal!

        • Isabella Muse

          I was a little surprised too! and laughed! the blushes are awesome! They are more highlighter in my opinion but very intense and glow-y, a metallic sheen to them that’s gorgeous!

          • Jules

            Oh, that sounds perfect for summer!!! Now I’ll have to find them for sure!

          • Isabella Muse

            They are awesome! I used one today on top of my blush and it added such a great glow!

  • Hollie

    I’m tempted by these but I love the Lush lip scrubs so so so much…

    • Isabella Muse

      they actually have the same drier/denser consistency as Lush ones!

      • Chelley

        Oh thanks for mentioning those, because the Lush ones are the only ones I have any experience with so far, so it’s nice to have a frame of reference!

        I did just buy an indie-made lip scrub this past weekend at New England VegFest (it’s held in my hometown of Worcester MA) from a brand I’ve been a fan of for years, The Fanciful Fox, and I’m about to go try it, along with that funny little lip scrubber gadget from Sephora I just got. I picked the scrub in Hibiscus, the tester smelled divine!

        • Isabella Muse

          My pleasure! They are pretty much very similiar formulas! Ooo! I wonder if they have an Etsy store ;D do so love indie brands!

  • Kristin

    Naturistics? Was that the brand that used to have all of the awesome potted lip balms?

    • Isabella Muse

      Naturistics! totally! Remember the ads with Alexis Bledel!

  • Adrienne

    Muse-I wanted to share a good haul since you always do that for us and was wondering if you have a Gabe (Gabriel Bros) in your area. I scored a ton of Laura Geller including baked eyeshadow palette and Julep polishes. The Katy Perry Gloss was $2.49 everything else was $2.99!

    • Isabella Muse

      OH I WISH! No Gabes around here sadly 🙁 Closest one is PA I think!

    • erin

      I never go into my local Gabe’s because the clientele is unsavory, but for Julep polishes, I may have to bite that bullet lol

  • Randi MacDonald

    Pecker up? Even if they didn’t make a mistake with that, it would seem that name would be better suited to a citrus scent.

  • Randi MacDonald

    I remember those tins of gloss. Where they made by Village or something like that?
