Wet n Wild Hot Paris Pink Silk Finish Lipstick

Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick is the 1-dollar range that has been around for as long as I remember. I picked up Hot Paris Pink , a bright coral red with a fuchsia lean (they might as well name it Hot for Hawaii)which reminds me of MAC Impassioned, while I was taking advantage of a 1-dollar-off-2-item sale.
Similar Colors in my stash: Essence Red Carpet (which already melted back in February) ,Wet n Wild Hot Paris Pink and Maybelline Fruit Punch (my favorite of the bunch).
Like other Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipsticks, Hot Paris Pink has a decent pigmentation and gives a slight sheen as it's freshly applied, but after 10 minutes or so, the (somewhat) thin-textured lipstick also dries to a stain-like thin finish and always extend outside my lips.

Overall: Great color (that's already a little garish on me), amazing price. I am not a big fan of the formula or the protruding lipsticks bullet that doesn't swirl all the way back. 


  1. Aww. I had high hopes that spiraled slowly down as I read. It's a shame because I love the sheen they have. Le Sigh.

  2. Wow I didn't expect the swatch to be so creamy/glossy, thanks for letting us know it dries to a stain. I'm sure it doesn't look garish on you. ^^

  3. the formula LOOKS good on your lips, didn't know that it dried to a stain finish, so thanks for the review. i like this color a lot

    Vonnie of

  4. The swatch on your lips look great but if it extends past your lip line, I've gotta skip it *sigh*

  5. Eden-Avalon:
    I think it doesn't harm much to give it a try though, especially when it's 50% off in Walgreen.

    It could be my specific lip type that I have rather thin epidermis on my lips so unless it's something wet/a gloss or really moisturizing...many drugstore lipsticks are not as forgiving.

    It might stay semi-glossy if your lips has stronger protective barrier. (Mine don't - -)

    It could still be a great color to mix with clear gloss/Vaseline though. I don't really regret buying it since it's a really pretty color, but on the other hand, Maybelline fruit punch just performs so well that it makes Wet n Wild pales in comparison (not to mention the after coupon price of Maybelline was dirt cheap as well) so I might be a little too harsh on it...

  6. hi there, what is the color of the last picture ? I like that color, but don't know it's name, can any one tell ?

    1. In the last picture, I am wearing the Wet n Wild Hot Paris pink (the title of this post). If you are aksing for the last color in the arm swatch (second to the last picture), it's maybelline color sensational lipstick in fruit punch.

      I am not sure what you are asking as I have mentioned everything in the post.
