Wet n’ Wild Perfect Pair Lip Wands are retractable dual-ended products with one side being a lip liner and the other a lipstick crayon. According to Wet n’ Wild’s website: “Versatile, dual-ended lip wand contains a smooth, creamy lipstick on one end and a matching lipliner on the other. Perfectly color-coordinated and easy-to-use”. The color name, as with most Wet n’ Wild products, is printed only on the outer packaging but the color number is located on the cap of the liner end. The packaging looks a little cheap to me, but the caps snap on securely. The liners retract all the way down, and the lipsticks retract almost all the way, so there is little threat of nicking the product.
Wet n’ Wild Perfect Pair Lip Wands come in 4 colors. I believe that all of the shades are pretty frosty, so if you prefer matte lip color, you may want to look elsewhere. I have shades 121 Nearly Nude and 120 Hanky Pinky. Both the liners and the lip colors apply smoothly, and both are pretty creamy. They feel good on the lips going on, and that feeling lasts for a long time after application. I really like the size of the lip crayon because I find that it gives a much more precise application as opposed to regularly sized lipsticks. The color payout for Hanky Pinky is great, though I found Nearly Nude to be a bit too light for me. I would have liked the lighter color if it hadn’t been so frosty and, likewise, I wouldn’t mind the frostiness if it were a darker color but this combination just didn’t work. Perhaps the Nearly Nude would work better for someone with a fair skin tone.
Wet n’ Wild Perfect Pair Lip Wands lasted about 4 hours on me, though the shimmer kept holding after the color had faded. They hold up well through drinking, but not through a meal. After about an hour, they started to make the lines on my lips more apparent and started to feel drying soon after that, though people with more natural moisture to their lips should be ok.
All in all, Wet n’ Wild Perfect Pair Lip Wands are a good product if you like frosty lips. They are not the most moisturizing lip products that I’ve used, but they are not too drying either. They are a “take it or leave it” product for me, good, but not great. They are really good for traveling, however, and are a nice and compact, 2-in-1 for your purse or makeup bag. Wet n’ Wild Perfect Pair Lip Wands can be found wherever Wet n’ Wild products are sold and retail for around $3.99. And for those who were wondering, Wet n’ Wild products are cruelty-free.
