This one is a major beauty bargain alert. I was in the drugstore last night not really needing anything but wanting to bring something new home with me. I picked up this $1.99 lipstick from Wet n Wild called Purty Persimmon. I actually don’t recall seeing this shade previously in the Wet n Wild line, so I grabbed it. It’s a really bright orange-red shade and it’s gorgeous. Full swatches inside,
Purty Persimmon is a hot orange-red shade. In the tube, it actually looks more orange, but once you apply it, it shows up as more of a flaming hot coral red. It is extremely pigmented and you only need a couple of swipes. I liked that this one wasn’t extremely drying. It actually isn’t completely matte and has a nice finish to it. It manages to be extremely flattering and really bring out my eye color.
This felt so nice on my lips. Like I said, it was hydrating and pigmented at the same time.
I really like the way this shade looks against my eye color and skin tone. It’s a bit of a departure from your typical orange or red lipstick because it falls somewhere in between the two. It’s almost like a poppy-inspired shade.
Wet n Wild “Purty Persimmon” Lipstick is available at drugstores and mass retailers nationwide. Each lipstick retails for $1.99, making this a MAJOR beauty bargain. It’s a fantastic way to try a new lipstick shade without breaking the bank. This is also a shade that transitions well from summer into fall.
