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.
