Recently i was scrolling the HOK Makeup’s website to see if there is any interesting stuff and found a new arrival by Wet n Wild beauty. its their Wet n Wild Velvet Matte Lip Color. i immediately bought two of their shades.
So today’s post is going to be a detailed review on these Wet n Wild Velvet Matte Lip Color only.
Let’s Begin !!!
Price – INR 299/- but i got these for Rs. 149/- during an amazing discount offer.. Yayy!!
Right now the Wet n Wild Velvet Matte Lip Color are only available on HOK Makeup.com
The packaging of Wet n Wild Velvet Matte Lip Color is very simple n basic. they come in matte black plastic crayon packaging. the cap and the bottom part of the crayon is color coded. they doesn’t come with any outer case but sealed with a plastic film with all the details written on it. on the main tube we have only the brand name n product name and on the bottom we have the shade name sticker. the best part of the packaging is that you don’t have to sharpen it, they are retractable. which is a Yayy !!
Texture, Formula and Pigmentation-
The Wet n Wild Velvet Matte Lip Color are quit smooth n silky in texture. you’ll have to warm it up on the back of your hand for the very first use. after that they glide on very smoothly.
the formula of the Wet n Wild Velvet Matte Lip Color is kind of waxy but they are very comfortable on the lips and very light weight. also have a complete matte finish. they are not water-proof or smudge – proof, but they definitely don’t transfer once they set ( which is great)
talking about the pigmentation,they are not one of those lip crayons which is extremely pigmented and need only one stroke. the pigmentation is less as compared to other lip crayons. so you’ll have to apply 2-3 strokes to get opaque coverage. but the overall finish is very beautiful.
the staying power of Wet n Wild Velvet Matte Lip Color is quite nice too. they stay on the lips for a decent amount of time around 3-4 without eating and drinking. obviously they are not liquid lipsticks so can not expect them to be super long lasting.
they come in total 9 shades in other countries. but in India there are 7 shades available ranging from nudes to pinks to oranges.
My Experience with the Wet n Wild Velvet Matte Lip Color –
I got so much attracted when i saw them on HOK Makeup website.so I ordered two of the shades. They are very light weight and glide on smoothly, however, I had to apply couple of times to get the color to really show up. they are not highly pigmented. They don’t seem to make my lips feel dry or uncomfortable. But You’ll have to make sure to exfoliate your lips before wearing them otherwise they sit into the cracks n lines of your lips. if your lips are peeling off or dry then they wont be applied evenly and wont set properly onto your lips. so make sure you have well exfoliated lips.
the formula is very new and unique for me. i have never tried this kind of formula before. its very waxy and very light weight. because of the waxy base they doesn’t apply very opaque in single stroke. they are more like a stained lip color to me which you can build upon the pigmentation up to 3-4 times.
i got the shade Hickory Smoked and Looking For Truffle. Hickory Smoked is such a beautiful burnt orange-y (Peachy) color which is very new in my collection. i really love the shade. and Looking For Truffle is a redish brown color. however they both look quit similar on the packaging but they not.
i feel the lighter shades are more streaky and hard to work on. which i luckily didn’t buy. i’m very happy with both the shades i got. Hickory Smoked is my favorite.
honestly, i didn’t have any expectations from these Wet n Wild Velvet Matte Lip Color. specifically for the price i’m paying. but i like them. Overall, I am pleased with these lip crayons and will probably use them on a regular basis.
Recommendation– Yes! i would recommend this to you ; but also they are not must haves! if you are a college going girl then you should give it a try. i really like them for the price point. it’s a very good option for daily basis and also for “no makeup makeup look”….!!
i suggest you to buy the darker shades from the range as they would apply better and not streaky or patchy. also buy them only when they are on discount. both the shades i got Hickory Smoked and Looking For Truffle is suitable for almost all skin tones.
So Guys, That was my review for the new Wet n Wild Velvet Matte Lip Color. i hope it was helpful for you. please let me know your thoughts and queries in the comment box below. i’ll see you in my next post very soon. until then stay happpy and beYOUtiful!!
