Budget Buys: Wet N Wild Purty Persimmon 970

This could quite possibly be one of the world's most affordable lipsticks...

I had spotted Wet n Wild's Mega Last Lip Colour in Purty Persimmon 970 while I was at CVS a few weeks back but I didn't end up grabbing it. Well, I kept thinking about it and thought for nearly $2.50, why not? read correctly $2.50. I even found them as cheap as $1.49...just depending on where you look (Target, Walgreens, CVS, Walmart). 

Packaging is not the most luxurious but it's functional. As you can see it's  bright orangey red that on me leans more orange when applied (you can see my instagram photo here). As the name suggests it's supposed to be long wearing, semi matte lipstick with moisturising ingredients. I didn't find this drying, didn't accentuate any dry patches and stayed put. Obviously if you are going to do some heavy duty eating I'm sure this would come off quite a bit more. One thing to mention is that the formal is a drier/firmer texture when applying, so it takes time and help from a lip brush to apply but once it's on it feels creamy which is odd to me. Also if your lips are extremely dry I'd pass. 

Overall, I think these would be great if you want to experiment with colours to see what suites you best because they are so inexpensive you don't have much to lose. 

I hope you're having a great week and I'll see you soon!
