Skin tone: Medium tanned
Winter means to buy lip balms and here, I picked two new ones from Wet n Wild. I found a new dark shade lip balm, so I picked this Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Gel Lip Balm in the shade Rule. Let’s get into the review.
Way more glamorous than your regular lip balm, yet more natural looking than lipstick, this new breakthrough color is our first lip gel formula. Your pout gets wrapped in luxury and kissed with a soft, barely there shade of glossy gorgeousness. You will never want to be without it.

My Experience with Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Gel Lip Balm Rule:
Wet N Wild lip balm comes in a nice white paper box with all the details. Actual lip balm looks like a cute black tube with a clear cap that makes it easy to identify the shade but the bullet doesn’t go inside completely, so there are chances of breakage from the top. Otherwise, the packaging is nice and of good quality.
Now, this range has so many shade options and I picked two of them. The shade ‘Rule’ is a beautiful deep pink shade that is good for all skin tones. Actually, in the tube, it looks like a purple shade but unfortunately, on the lips, it looks so different and moreover a dark pink with a hint of plum tone in it. So the shade is not fully pigmented and that’s why it looks different on the lips. Otherwise, it is a nice versatile shade for all and looks so pretty on lips. It can hide lip pigmentation but I always need a few swipes to get the deep colour on my lips.
As it is a gel lip balm, it has a smooth glossy texture that glides so easily on the lips and provides a slippery soft effect on them. It feels extremely light and comfortable as well. It has a gel-like glossy finish that really looks nice, though it doesn’t have any shimmers. It also has a mild fragrance that never bothers me. It doesn’t feel patchy or colour doesn’t highlight the dry patches.
Now, I have extremely dry lips, so I always prefer rich hydrating lip balm. According to that, it has average quality. It does provide good hydration to lips and makes lips softer and healthier. It instantly cures dryness but it can’t repair them. I mean, if I have some dry patches, then it can’t soothe them deeply. I still can feel them on lips and my lips don’t feel that deeply moisturized. Maybe, for its slippery texture, I can’t get that nourishment.
Also, the hydrating doesn’t last long and reapplication is needed. It can’t survive any food. Maybe, no other lip balms can’t do that, still, a good lip balm leaves softness behind on the skin. But this lip balm isn’t able to provide that long-lasting softness. Also, the gloss started to fade after 2-3 hours. Hence, the colour doesn’t settle into the fine lines or creases but due to its super glossy texture, the lip line always looks a bit messy.
Overall, it is an average lip balm according to its quality but a good one as it provides a pretty glossy colour on lips. It actually plumps up my lips. Like the name suggested, it makes lips perfect for a pout. Wish the effect could stay for more, especially during this winter season, it is not the perfect one. Also, for a lip balm, it is bit pricey too, especially for a budget-friendly brand.

Would I Repurchased/Recommend Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Gel Lip Balm Rule?
I am not sure about repurchase. According to the finish on the lips, it is good but not enough hydrating for dry lips. I always prefer long-lasting lip balms.
