So this is not a typical post, but I had to share this discovery. First, as some of you may know, I’m a major product junkie. I can’t help myself. Some time late last summer or early in the fall I found myself searching for the perfect red lipstick. I carted myself off to my nearest drug store and bought 5 different varieties – one of them being a Wet ‘n Wild red that I thought might be too dark. But it was only $2.99, so why not take a chance?
Of course I forgot about said Wet ‘n Wild lipstick. I wore every other red I bought, trying out different shades with different outfits. I lost three of them to clutches, purses and pockets. This weekend I wanted to test out a deeper red and suddenly my mind flashed to that Wet ‘n Wild color I bought oh-so-long ago. I ransacked my closet and found it in my trusty storage container labeled “lips” – go figure.
Ladies and gents, the color is great AND the lipstick lasts for hours. Literally HOURS. The packaging claims it’s a 4-hour color. I put it on this morning at 9am and here is a photo of me at 2pm – after breakfast AND lunch – with the same original coat. Who knew $2.99 could look so good and last through two meals? For those of you outside of NYC you can purchase this for $1.99 at the drugstore. Or you can pick it up here and never leave your couch.
Note: My lips were dry this morning so I applied a very thin coat of Vaseline and then put a coast of lipstick on top – and the lipstick still stayed for 5-hours. Plus the Vaseline made it easy to clean up the edges of my lips with my finger.
