If you’ve read my blog at all, you know I love classic red lipstick. So when I saw this beautiful red released with wet n wild’s Limited Edition Fall Collection, I couldn’t pass it up.
This shade, How Fleek is Your Love, is one of four Color Icon Matte Liquid Lipsticks in their new collection. First of y’all, the name? So dumb and weird. I cringed just typing it. However, a lipstick by any other name would be as beautiful. Or something like that.
Poorly misused quotes aside, I’m trying to express that I love this lipstick! The formula is a true matte that dries down only seconds after application.
The color payoff is amazing and completely covered my lips in one coat. This is a classic blue-red lip that will flatter any and all skin tones! I think it makes teeth look whiter, also!
The applicator is a fuzzy, doe foot wand, that made application relatively easy. The flock on the applicator was a little long for my taste, which meant I made a few mistakes applying the lipstick. It is also curved in towards the tip, which I’m assuming is to allow more product to be picked up there. I was able to cover almost all of my lips with one swipe which was nice.
I would definitely have some tissues, concealer, and/or a lip brush on hand to help clean up any mistakes you make. This product dries FAST and is LONG wearing, so try to remove any excess/accidental lipstick you apply ASAP!
However, since it sets down to a matte so quickly, bleeding wasn’t an issue for me. Hooray!
It also doesn’t transfer. It stayed on well for several hours. I was able to drink water, but it started flaking oddly when I tried eating with it on. It sort of came off in tiny little chunks, but not off completely. It would have definitely required reapplication though!
In fact, I had to use a lipstick remover to get it all the way off! This lipstick remove from e.l.f. worked great. Just beware before you apply this stuff that it is HARD to remove without a product designed to do just that. Otherwise you’ll be scrubbing your poor lips raw!
All this jabbering and I haven’t even mentioned one of the best parts! This matte liquid lipstick only costs $2.99! YES. UNDER $3. Unreal!
It’s unfortunately currently sold out on wet n wild’s website. However, it is sold at HEB, Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, and other retailers. Wet n wild also has a store locator function, so you can see where to purchase their products in your area.
If you don’t see it in the regular wet n wild section of your store, check end caps for special displays, since this is a Limited Edition collection. And trust me, their collections sell out quickly! I bought everything I wanted from the fall collection as soon as it showed up in my HEB, and the next time I saw the display it was totally empty! If you want something, snatch it up when you see it!
As you can tell, I’m pretty enamored with this wet n wild Color Icon Matte Liquid Lipstick! The price can’t be beat for the quality! I think it holds up well against higher end matte liquid lipsticks for a fraction of the cost.
I purchased more from the wet n wild fall 2016 collection, so I’ll be sharing my thoughts on those products soon! I hope you’re all as excited about them as I am!

I have really come to appreciate matte lipsticks. They last longer, and some how make me look younger (in comparison to glossy or creamy one!)
I totally agree! Plus the added benefit of them not getting stuck in your hair if the wind blows!! 😉
