Wet n Wild Velvet Matte Lip 2015 Review & SwatchesWet n Wild Velvet Matte Lip 2015 Review & Swatches (c/o)

I’ve got more Spring releases from Wet n Wild for you today: the Wet n Wild Velvet Matte Lips.

I got really excited getting these because lip crayons are so easy to use!

Wet n Wild Velvet Matte Lip 2015 Review & Swatches

The Wet n Wild Velvet Matte Lips applied evenly on my arm but they weren’t completely matte.  They’re semi-sheer with a slight sheen and feel really balmy.

The lip crayons came packaged wrapped in perforated plastic (which I HATE, they drive me nuts! haha) and the lipstick itself in the crayon was poorly packaged.  80% of the time, the lipstick fell out of the crayon when I opened it.  Thankfully, they didn’t leave a mark on my clothes it fell on.

Wet n Wild Velvet Matte Lip 2015 Review & Swatches

Half the shades applied decently on my lips while the rest were a waste of production.  If you’re looking for a drugstore matte, these are definitely NOT it.  Nude Muse, Pinky Candy, and Transcendence barely showed up on my lips and were patchy in color.  Kreamsicle Kitty and The Stand Out looked absolutely horrendous on me, but are fun shades for those who can pull it off.

My favorites that I’ll continue to wear (even if they aren’t matte) are Timeless Chick and Plumgenue.

The Wet n Wild Velvet Matte Lip Collection can be found at your local Walgreens for $3.49.

  • At gutted these weren’t as good as you’d hoped, they look so lovely in the packaging! Love the shades swatched too.

    • It was so weird that they swatched ok on my arm, but as soon as I applied them on my lips, they didn’t come out as expected.

    The plumgenue shade looks gorgeous!


  • Plumgenue is also my favourite of the bunch and you can actually see the ones that have a patchy application or less of a pigment. It’s a shame the packaging is not up to scratch either x

    • Right? Imagine if it was a red shade – there’d be marks all over my pants when the actual lipstick came out!

  • They look really pretty, too bad they’re not that pigmented. Kreamsicle Kitty would be my pick, I actually think it looks good on your lips! 🙂 x

    It’s such a shame that these were a bit rubbish as the swatches look really pretty on your arm! xx

    P.S Have an amazing time in Hawaii – I’m so jealous!

  • Aww I wanted to get these but seeing your swatches made me a little sad. It’s too bad that they aren’t completely matte and aren’t super pigmented 🙁

    DJ Doll and Timeless Chick look so fab and natural!!!!! Loved seeing the swatches to your skintone 😀 it gives me a good idea for how these will look when my skin gets a little tanner in the summer!

  • Ugh, that’s terrible that they look like that on your lips! Most of the colors are seriously a let down! Thanks for sharing with us, I wouldn’t have thought they’d be so bad!
