I have always been skeptical about trying dark shades of lipsticks since they can’t be used as everyday lipsticks. But my perception changed after I found out a few shades of lipsticks which are dark but are well suited for everyday usage. Yes, such shades do exist. Today I will be reviewing one such shade and name of the product is Wet N Wild Silk Finish Lipstick Dark Wine. Read on to know if the product is worth a buy or not.

My Experience With Wet N Wild Silk Finish Lipstick Dark Wine
The packaging is just fine. The cap is transparent and “wet n wild” is written in white. The twist bottom is black in color and at the back of this black container, the name and shade of the color “dark wine” is specified.
It has a smooth, creamy texture which glides easily on the lips. The color is a beautiful maroon red that I love.
How to use
Open the cap and twist the bottom to reveal the lipstick. Start with the inner corner of your mouth and apply it outwards and fill in where required. A lip liner prior to the lipstick is recommended
It smells like scented candles, nothing fancy. The smell stays for a maximum of 20 minutes after the application of the lipstick, so I don’t mind the fragrance
This was one among the set of lipsticks that I purchased when wet n wild launched in India, exclusively on nykaa. This shade is a pretty maroon red kind of shade, that would suit every kind of skin tone and the best part is that this can be used for any occasion. This shade is not too dark, which makes it ideal for daily wear as well. I loved this lipstick for many reasons. One of them was because it covered my pigmented lips perfectly and kept my lips moisturized and hydrated throughout. Also, probably since this a darker shade, it stayed for a good 4 to 5 hours after light snacks and drinks. It did fade to a certain extent but overall, the color payoff was impressive. It didn’t feather out or bleed. It did transfer a little though, which is ok since this is an extremely affordable lipstick.
