I ended up walking away with four of the new lipsticks from the Wet n Wild Fergie Centerstage Collection, even though I realistically wanted them all! I tried to choose a shade in each color family so I could review and swatch a variety. I love the packaging on these lipsticks! They look really different and sharp compared to other Wet n Wild lipsticks. Inside I’ve got swatches of Bebot Love, Penthouse Sweet, Old School Glam, and D-Vinely Chilled.
D-Vinely Chilled is a darkened plum-wine shade with a reflection of gold shimmer in it. This one looks absolutely stunning in the packaging, and I couldn’t wait to try this one. Out of the four I swatched, this one had the driest texture, probably from the shimmer, but it wasn’t gritty at all. I would just be sure to have moisturized lips when wearing this one, or add a little gloss on top for extra moisture.
It’s a really unique, dramatic shade that has the most beautiful fine shimmer in it.
Old School Glam is your stereotypical classic fire red, with the volume turned up. This shade is blindingly bright, and can almost look a little bit on the fire orange side. I love this one because it’s daring and it is a modernized version of red lips.
Take a tip from me…if you are going to wear this shade, take the time to line your lips and apply this color precisely because it is very bright. I was swatching these shades quickly, trying to get through them, and the result on the swatch above is a bit messy. When wearing this color out, it’s pretty much essential that you line your lips and apply this shade using a lip brush for the most precise application possible.
Penthouse Sweet looks, well, sweet in the packaging. When you apply this shade, however, you get this incredible cool, blue-based magenta pink shade that lights up on your face. Love, love, love. This one is feminine and unapologetic, and definitely one of my favorite shades to wear with black eyeliner.
I envision this shade with some black cat-liner and some false lashes!
Bebot Love is a nude brown shade. This is a stunning pick if you’re into beige and nude shades of lipstick. I couldn’t figure out what “Bebot” meant or was referencing until I looked it up and realized it is the name of a Black Eyed Pea’s song.
This is a fabulous nude shade for pairing with heavy smokey eyes. Something about the color reminds me of the whole 1960′s “mod makeup” trend!
Overall: All of these lipsticks had a fantastic texture and were moisturizing, with the except of “D-Vinely Chilled” which is a bit drier than the rest. The lipstick was incredibly rich and pigmented, and for the price, you get an insane value with these lip colors.
