Wet n' Wild Nouveau Pink 511B Silk Finish Lipstick
Wet n' Wild's Nouveau Pink #511B Silk Finish lipstick is a bright neon pink with a glossy satin finish. It definitely leans more blue than neutral. The color is similar to MAC's Candy Yum-Yum, but the finish is very different. It applies very smoothly and is not drying on the lips, but the color payoff isn't completely opaque - even with multiple passes it retains that semi-sheer finish. Also, because of the finish, the wear time is probably two hours max. It did fade a little unevenly.
This is a decent lipstick. It feels good on the lips and the price is definitely right at $0.99. The packaging is really flimsy and it's very easy to accidentally gouge the product when removing or replacing the lid. Also, the bullet itself just seems to rattle around a lot. Despite the vibrant color, I didn't have too much of an issue with this staining my lips.
