Packaging: Pretty standard black tube with clear cap. The fault with this packaging is that the lipstick does not fully retract into the tube. 6/10
Longevity: Quite long lasting, fades evenly and leaves a stain on your lips. 8/10
Application: Applied easily and opaquely. Maybe just a smidge
of skipping due to the semi-matte finish but really nothing that I found to be problematic. 8/10
Texture: Semi-matte. Slightly creamy. Comfortable. 9/10
Hey there! Today I wanted to bring something to the table that’s ultra affordable, easily accessible and all around a really nice product, especially at this price point. I recently picked up three shades of Wet n Wild’s MegaLast Lipstick for $2 a pop and I have to say that I’m really surprised with how nice these lipsticks are! The shades that I purchased are Purty Persimmon, Vamp It Up and Pinkerbelle.
I have a pretty serious lipstick addiction and I can’t believe that I haven’t tried out the Wet n Wild MegaLast Lipsticks until now! I guess I just never really thought that a $2 lipstick could rival my other, more expensive lipsticks but I was flat wrong. These lipsticks are seriously pigmented, long lasting and comfortable. I’ll no doubt be picking up more of these…probably a lot more.
The pigmentation in these lipsticks is no joke. They were mostly fully opaque after one swipe and after scrubbing vigorously on my hand with a makeup remover wipe to remove these swatches, the stains are still lingering around many hours later.
They also are surprisingly long lasting! They aren’t going to make it through a full day without needing touched up but they do hold up really well so you won’t need to constantly worry about how your lipstick looks. Even after drinking without a straw, they were still going strong after a few hours. Each of these shades left behind a stain on my lips and faded pretty evenly. Even when they did start to fade, the staining made it look less obvious so they really wore quite well.
The finish is a creamy semi-matte. I actually found it to be very comfortable and quite moisturizing, even after a few hours of wear. I’ve heard that the very light nude shades can be more drying and difficult to work with so keep that in mind. Purty Persimmon, Vamp It Up and Pinkerbelle were just lovely though!
My single gripe with the Wet n Wild MegaLast Lipsticks lied with the packaging. The lipsticks do not fully retract into the tube, leaving about 1/4 of an inch or so sticking out. This makes nicking the lipstick with the cap at some point almost inevitable unless you’re super careful and it’s a problem when both replacing the cap and removing it.
All in all though, I think these are wonderful and the price just makes them all the better! I have a feeling I’m going to end up with a hoard of these soon.
So let’s get to the swatches!
Purty Persimmon is a gorgeous orange-red that reminds me of MAC’s Lady Danger or NYX’s Indie Flick.
Vamp It Up
Oh yes, Vamp It Up is my new baby and my favorite of the bunch. A very dark, vampy purple that is similar to MAC’s Cyber.
Pinkerbelle is a lovely shade of medium-bright pink with yellow undertones which I adore!
Have you tried any of the Wet n Wild Mega Last Lipsticks before? What are your thoughts and favorite shade?
