Tired of matte liquid lipsticks? Let’s get metallic then! Matte liquid lipsticks have been the all the rage for quite some time now but it seems that more and more metallic liquid lipsticks are popping up on the scene. Some still sport a matte finish for a really funky look but some brands like Wet n Wild decided to skip the matte and just go for a smooth, metallic liquid lipstick that easy on the lips and filled to the brim with glitter. I’m so here for it!
Wet n Wild recently released a new line of Color Icon Metallic Liquid Lipsticks in their limited edition summer collection but I’m hoping that they become permanent soon because Indigo Your Own Way has definitely grown on me. Indigo Your Own Way is a vibrant violet with a tinge of pink and a shimmering metallic finish. It’s a very easy to wear purple that’s flattering on a variety of complexions but really stands out on brown skin. I think it’s a must have for purple lip lovers–especially if you love glitter!
Indigo Your Own Way goes on evenly with a smooth, creamy whipped mousse texture and semi-sheer buildable coverage. The formula is nothing like your traditional liquid lipstick as it doesn’t sport a matte finish or fully dry down so it’s very comfortable to wear and pretty easy on the lips. The downside is that it doesn’t last nearly as long as a regular liquid lipstick. Indigo Your Way wears for around 3-4 hours before fading into a bold violet stain that hangs on for a few hours before completely disappearing. It’s not the most ideal lipstick if you’re looking for that traditional liquid lipstick formula with all day wear but it feels so good on the lips that I don’t mind reapplying throughout the day. I really hope Wet n Wild considers making the Color Icon Metallic Liquid Lipsticks permanent because Indigo Your Own Way has quickly grown on me and has me wanting to grab a few more shades. If you happen to spot any of the new Color Icon Metallic Liquid Lipsticks at your local drugstore I recommend grabbing one (or two) of them before they’re all gone. I think you’ll like them too!
