Review: Wet n Wild Vicious Varnish High Shine Lip Stain

Today’s review is on another Wet n Wild lip product.  I think I have a little bit of a lip product obsession!! 🙂    Price:   

$3.49 (I found them on sale at Walgreens for $2.49. Available in 10 shades. I purchased Legendary Face and Runway Red.


  • Revolutionary 2-in-1 Formula Stains with Intense Color & Leaves a High-Shine Finish Without Wax
  • Buildable, Ultra Long-Lasting Glossy Formula
  • Vitamin-Enriched Hydrating Formula

Revolutionary high-shine lip gloss applies like a lip stain that leaves behind shine without any wax.


This has a somewhat gel consistency.  They are more on the sticky side (more on that later).


It has a rounded doe foot applicator wand tip.  The tip is flexible which makes it a little harder to get a precise application.    Pigmentation:

The pigmentation was pretty good on the two colors I chose.  I wouldn’t say this is like a liquid lipstick, but more like a tinted lip gloss.  You can build the color up, but because it’s a thicker consistency it doesn’t feel great on the lips when you do this.     Scent:

They have a chemical scent to them.  Ick!


Again, the flexible tip made it difficult to obtain a precise application.  Plus, I really disliked the texture.  It was goopy and every time I put my lips together, the product became stringy.  It was pretty gross!

Overall Thoughts:

This product just isn’t for me.  I’ve heard mixed reviews and I know some really love it.  But I just can’t get past the scent and the texture.  Wet n Wild makes some of my favorite makeup products and unfortunately, this won’t be added to that list!

Oh well.  You win some….you lose some!

If you have any suggestions/recommendations of products for me to try out or review let me know!  Even if you have ideas for future posts I’d love to hear them!  Just leave me a comment below or on any of my social media accounts!



Have a beautiful and wonderful day!

    i HATE products that have a chemical scent!! Everything needs to have a good scent/flavor to them for me to enjoy your product or no fragrance at all.


    1. I totally agree! Why would I want to put that on my lips when it smells like chemicals? At least they weren’t expensive!!

      10. Yes. I wish the only bills I had were makeup related!! Instead of paying for water and power…the money would go towards makeup! Why not get rid of bills entirely? That sounds like a better plan!
