Yet another lipstick review! I've just been really digging Wet n' Wild lately. I don't know why but I think their range of lip colors are fantastic!!!! I've only ever owned their lip pencils and eyeshadow palettes so lipsticks are a new alley to explore.
Currently, I'm obsessed with reds. Anything remotely red is eye-catching ;)
Cherry Picking is a shade of red that is a matte cherry red. It actually is more of a fuchsia once I wear it, not quite the cherry shade I imagined. But fuchsia's are quite pretty and goes with any day and night look. And it's also not the bright hot fuchsia that is associated with runway colors - this one is a lot more toned down depending on how many layers you apply. I always like a wash of color, never too dramatic.
On the lips, it feels quite waxy. Not necessarily very dry, but it's also not slippery either. There is no sheen. It's like a simple matte lip color that's meant to stick on your lips and not slide around.
I find that to be a little uncomfortable as I press my lips together and they feel waxy...so I actually put a bit of balm on my lips before applying the lipstick.
It gradually kind of fades like all lipsticks do to a pretty MLBB color. I love it! It makes my lips look full, healthy and tinted. Despite its waxiness, I do love this shade a lot. I think it's so pretty.
Wear-wise, I haven't experienced feathering or bleeding of color, just as they claim it won't. It feels very in-place. I mean VERY. It's not gonna budge once you have it on.
Here's what it looks like with some balm underneath. It looks a bit more glossier, which is nice too!
I really enjoy this color a lot. It seems like such a playful shade for warm weather! I'm particularly liking it a lot with minimalistic tees and shorts. It adds such a femininity in otherwise neutral looks. Oh and it looks great for work as well! :)
