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.
Here's a closer look at the Fergie logo.
Here's a closer look at the wand. The top and the bottom are both flat.
Here's a swatch of the lip stain.
Here's how the colors looks on me.
Here's an overall look with the lip stain.

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.

Pros:
* Comes in a variety of colors.
* Hardly noticeable scent.
* Both sides of the wand is flat; do not need to re-dip.
* Smooth consistency.
* Does not tug on the lips.

Cons:
* Limited edition.
* It gets gloppy after 30 minutes or so.
* There's no stain on the lips after you remove the lip stain.

Would repurchase: No!

Hmm... From your description, it sounds just like a regular lip gloss. =/ Maybe you'll have better experience with the other tube?

I have these in two colors and I love them! They are also much darker so maybe your issues are unique to the light color? and I will be so sad if these are discontinued!!!

Ugh.... I had that problem. The lip stain didn't stain my lips I had to wipe it off as well. It ever being like a lip gloss. And I didn't like it. I was sad too, I found then on sale at cvs, and since I couldn't decide on the colors I got three. I was very disappointed. I even used a lip scrubber because I thought my lips may have been dry and that's what caused the white line. But it kept happening. Such a shame. So many pretty colors!

Ahleessa said...

Ahhh~ I'm not the only one who had that gunk of product on the lip. I will never buy this lip stain from Wet n Wild ever again. I hear great reviews on YouTube. So sad it didn't work for us. :(

Ahleessa said...

No problem and great to know you learned a new English word... hehe~ You made me laugh and smile. :)

Ahleessa said...

Thanks!

Ahleessa said...

Hrmmm~ I wonder if it has to only do with light colored lip products from this line. I definitely need to check out the bright pink one I bought.

Ahleessa said...

Awww~ Thank you! I will definitely check out your blog right now. :)

Ahleessa said...

Thanks!

Ahleessa said...

It does sounds like a regular lip gloss... hehe~ I need to test the other color for sure!

Beatriz Garcia said...

Well it happens from time to time! LOL just means that we have to find one that doesnt leave white lines on our lips!!

Ahleessa said...

True!... hehe~

Piper said...

lol, thanks for the heads up on this. It's basically a tinted lip gloss guised as a stain then, lol. If I were you I'd return the product and get a refund. You could take money you spent on those, combine it and buy a real stain that actually works, lol. Then if you want some lip gloss, just add it on top after this sets, lol. Hope you are doing well. Hugs. ♥

Ahleessa said...

You're so correct it is a lipgloss rather than a lip stain! Unfortunately, I cannot return them. I past the refund stage. :X I'm doing okay. How are you doing? I hope everything is treating you well!
