If you follow me on Instagram, I posted the display that I recently found in my local Walgreens of the brand new Wet n Wild Fergie 2014 Collection. I was so excited because I was not expecting it at all, and they had all of the brand new Vicious Varnish Lip Stains out! I ended up buying 5 of them, which are the colors I thought I would wear most. There were a few other shades in the full collection though. These are a major beauty bargain, coming in at $3.49 each. Check out my review and swatches inside!
The Vicious Varnish Lip Stains are a lip gloss, lipstick, lip-stain hybrid. The applicator is flat, like a lip gloss, and it has a slightly glossy, shiny, moisturizing feeling to it. The color payoff is very saturated and you will get a lipstick-like color payoff with each of these. These are also a stain, so they actually somewhat “dry” onto your lips, and stay put. I really liked how these felt because they weren’t sticky or goopy at all. They leave behind a long-lasting wash of color that stayed on my lips for hours.
The applicator makes the product easy to apply, and you will only need a small amount to achieve your desired effect since they are so pigmented. I had a gut feeling that these would be really rich in color (like most items from Wet n Wild are), so I was very pleased.
Legendary Face is a pink-nude shade. This is a classic shade that Fergie herself wears often when she graces the red carpet. I like this shade a lot, and because the texture is so long-lasting, it’s one I’ll be reaching for on a daily basis.
Flawless is a bright strawberry pink. Very rich in color, and very pretty.
Ball In Vienna is a cool-toned, blue-based fuchsia pink. Hot, hot, hot! This one will make your teeth look whiter and has a very blue, cool tone to it, especially in comparison to the other pink shades in this collection.
Epic is similar to “Flawless,” only it is richer and deeper in color, more of a wine-stained berry shade. This one is so pretty for the colder months.
Throwing Shade is a magnificent plum shade. I’m really into violet shades on the lips…they really bring out my eye color, and this one is beautiful. It lasted on my lips for a really long time too, even through drinking coffee and water throughout the day.
Overall, for $3.49 USD each, you just can’t go wrong here. These are a major beauty bargain, and they’re so rich and pigmented in color that you won’t even need any other lip product.
Wet n Wild’s Fergie 2014 Collection is available at drugstores and mass retailers nationwide. This collection is slowly rolling out as of January 2014, so keep your eyes peeled for it. The Vicious Varnish Lip Stains are just a small part of this collection! There is also a shimmer eyeshadow primer, BB Cream, Gel Liner, and more!
