Well it’s Monday yet again, I hope you survived the weekend and had some fun/relaxation/excitement!
Today I’ve got the new Wet n Wild Fergie Velvet Matte Lip Color shades, which are Walgreens exclusives. I was super excited to see these. In fact out of all the new Wet n Wild releases, this is what excited me the most. Sadly, they didn’t live up to the possibilities I had for them.
These chunky crayons, which don’t need sharpening since they twist-up, have a velvet-like matte texture. The caps match the shade inside, which is a nice touch. They also have a matte texture on the packaging, which I also really like. But the formula leaves much to be desired. They are really quite sheer for what I expected and they don’t apply very evenly either. Some of them I had to apply for what seemed like an eternity before they showed up on my lips. Many of the shades look very similar when on my lips also. They definitely feel like mattes too, and not in a good way. There isn’t much hydration going on so my lips felt fairly dry after wearing one of them for just an hour.
