Hmm. I had heard that these were supposedly Wet 'n' Wild's answer to glossy-finish, slim-tubed lipsticks like Chantecaille Lip Chics and the like, but I think either my memory has deceived me or the person who told me that was on crack. These are not glossy at all, and are in fact remarkably matte. Some of the colors have shimmer, but even those still manage to look almost two-dimensional somehow. I wouldn't say that these are drying in and of themselves, but on the occasions when I've worn one over dry-ish lips, I felt like they accentuated the dryness - flaky spots were more visible, that kind of thing. With that said, though, these are truly rich colors, and would be a great find for anyone who likes the idea of replicating a classic fifties look with matte red lips, for example.
Fortunately, Wet 'n' Wild is particularly affordable (even as drugstore lines go), so if you're curious, there's not much harm in giving these a try. :) They retail for $3 each and are available at Rite Aid, Walgreens, drugstore.com, and so on. As far as I can tell, they have no noticeable scent (Thanks, Ghoulina!). Oh, and sorry for the messy application on these - I was tired =P
