Most times, I do my homework on the items I want to purchase next. It is rare for me to just pick up an item out of the blue...this is one of those times where I should have done my homework.

Both formulas blended the same, had the same amount of glide before dry down. I have tried both of these liquid lip colors in two ways: full on brushing of the cream onto the lips, and also using them as a "stain" with a very tiny amount blended with my finger. When I used this full on, this is the most opaque liquid color ever on the lips! It is as if you are brushing liquid patent leather onto your lips!!!!! Once this method as "set" the thick feeling does not disappear. It accentuated the lines on my lips and stayed "locked" into this look. Also, once set, I could not rub my lips together without a strong tugging. It is a dry feeling, but once rubbed, the lips become tacky and start to get patchy.
Using this as a stain, I was able to get more comfortable wear, but not by much. This actually does nicely as a stain if you are looking for a truly long wearing lip product. Regardless of what method I used, this was a pain to take off. I used an oil cleanser and makeup wipe to get the job done. These left my lips dried out, and though I take good care of my lips with regular exfoliation and moisture, this drew any moisture I had in them out.

For those that like a very long lasting lip product, this may work for you. Those with sensitive lips or that are prone to dryness might stay away. Glad I got to try them as I am a huge fan or Wet n Wild, unfortunately...these did not work for me.
