When Walgreens had their 40% off Wet n Wild products, I bought some products from the Fergie CenterStage Collection. I already reviewed the eyeshadow palette in No Filter.
For this post, I will focus on one of their Vicious Varnish HighShine Lip Stain.

Thoughts: When it comes to lip stains, I'm a huge fan. Anything that prolongs touching up my lips, I'm up for it. For that reason, I needed to try this. I couldn't decide between the two colors so I ended up getting both. Before I go further with my post, I need to mention I couldn't find this on the website. Either it's sold out or they stop making this product.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's a slight scent. It's not noticeable when you apply the stain on your lips. I only noticed while sniffing the product through my nose. It smells citrus-y. It's fresh and has a cool feel to it. Secondly, I like that the wand is flat on both sides. It grabs enough product that you don't need to re-dip. I also like that the consistency is very creamy. It goes on smoothly and does not tug on your lips. This is where I start to find this product a little odd. After 30 minutes or more, I noticed that the stain becomes gloppy on the lips. When my lips are dry, I notice white residue in the center of the lips. With this lip stain, there's residue all over the lips. I'm not too sure if it's only this color, I just got a bad stain, or it's all Vicious Varnish Lip Stains. I will have to play with the other lip stain I purchased. Another thing I found odd is that for a lip stain, it does not stain my lips at all. I rub the stain off when the stain becomes gloppy, and all I see is my natural lip color. Lastly, I cannot say what the lasting power is. I tend to rub it off after 30 minutes.
