Lip Swatch! - Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick - Pink Ice 528A

I have a post with 9 of the Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipsticks swatched out here.   This post is part of my expansion of that post, in which I swatch each color on my lips!

Pink Ice is my favorite lipcolor right now.  It is a very pretty pinky-peachy-plummy shiny-but-not-frosty light and happy color.  When I bought it, I didn't think I would wear it very often, so it sat there, unopened, for the longest time.  Then I tried it out.  Honestly, at first I didn't like the color.  It is unlike the colors I usually gravitate towards, and the pinkness of it scared the daylights out of me.  Now, I just love it.  It brightens up my face, makes my lips look plump and fuller, and fades evenly without clumping or streaking.  This is my "My Lips But Better" lipstick.

Ok, on to the lipstick!

First, bare lips.  I prepped them with a thin application of Lansinoh:

Now, few swipes, applied straight from the tube.  I'm not sure you can tell, but yes, I left half of my lips bare for comparison.

Next is full lip.  I applied directly from the tube to the bare side.  This color goes on somewhat sheer, and builds with a few swipes.  I don't find any need for a lipbrush.

Here is a full-face shot, to give you a better idea of how it works with skin tone.
First, no lipstick:

And yes, sometimes I even smile!

I don't find any need for a lipgloss to top the Silk Finish lipsticks.  After applying my Lansinoh Lanolin, my lips are soft and moisturized, and then adding the Silk Finish on top just makes them even glossier.  The formula is soft and slippery, and there is zero stickiness.
