You might have noticed earlier this week, in this post, I was sporting a new red color. And it’s my first true red lipstick! I figured it was time, and there was a cosmetics sale at Fred Meyer, where I picked up three new items:
- Wet n Wild Mega Last liquid lip color in “Cherry on Top”
- Wet n Wild Color Icon eyeshadow trio in “Silent Treatment” (with easy-to-follow palettes for browbone, crease, and eyelid)
- Seche Vite dry fast top coat nail polish (I’ve read so many great things about this quick-drying top coat!)
And here are some closeups of me wearing my new Wet n Wild lip color and eyeshadow.
I have to admit, I was a bit self-conscious wearing this bright red shade in public. It’s definitely something different for me! But I do like this shade of red, and I think it goes well with my pale coloring and dark hair. This liquid lip color is supposed to last up to 8 hours and have a built-in moisturizer. It certainly lasted through the day, but my lips did NOT feel that hydrated. I also felt I had to be very careful with applying the color and using the applicator wand. ‘Cause once that color is on, it is ON, y’all. (Also, FYI, a quick tip about taking off this megalasting color … it comes off much more easily if you apply petroleum jelly on your lips first.)
But it does feel a bit liberating to finally have my first true red lipstick. What do you think of this shade?
