Wet n Wild 552A Just Garnet lipstick Reviews
Hey lovely readers…!! Hope your day has been going good so far. Of late, I reviewed lipsticks in pink shade and yet again I’m going to review a pink lipstick that I have owned for quite long now. It’s from Wet n Wild. Yeah, this brand will look familiar to you because we have seen quite a few products from this brand on IMBB. Anyways, coming back to the review, I got this lipstick when my aunt from US had visited me last to last time which is almost a year from now. Read on to know how it fared on me.
It is enriched with conditioning ingredients of Vitamin A and E and Aloe Vera for moist-looking lips.

The packaging is a little cheap and ordinary though. It has a transparent plastic cap that shuts with a click and the bullet lies in the silver bottom holder. The shade code is mentioned at the bottom of the lipstick.
The texture is creamy and silky smooth which makes it possible for the lipstick to glide easily over the lips. The pigmentation is fine too. One swipe gives enough color. But since I have naturally pigmented lips, I prefer 2-3 coats of the lipstick. Best thing is that it doesn’t feel heavy on the lips.

My take on Wet n Wild 552A Just Garnet lipstick:
The first thing that I noticed was the extremely low price of this lipstick, I mean a lipstick for less than a $ is of course worth a try.
552A Just Garnet comes across as a fine bright red color with violet undertones. It doesn’t really smell like anything therefore being odorless. The shade in the bullet looks like deep red, but when applied, it has shimmery finish to it. 522A is a fun shade and perfect for the winters. It gives a nice glossy finish to my lips. The shade is a warm color hence goes well for the elder ladies.
The stay power is not very great, but a lipstick that stays for 3-4 hours at this price is not bad. Only issue being that it transfers in the initial hours post-application. Otherwise, it’s a nice lipstick to buy for this price J
I will rate it 8.5 out of 10
Will I recommend this lipstick?
Yes, I would love to but it’s not easily available in India L but if any of you come across them, I highly recommend it to you.
