Hello, my lovelies!! Welcome to my blog review of Wet N’ Wild’s Megalast Lipsticks! In my recent YouTube video, I swatched and reviewed the following shades: Raisin the Roof, Pocketful of Roses, Iris I Was Rich, & I Can Bare It. Let me begin by shouting to the rooftops how much I love Wet N’ Wild products. Yes, like any brand, there can be hits and misses. However, I find that for drugstore makeup, it offers a ton of palettes and lippies that are just as good as many whole-in-the-pocket high-end makeup products. So in my eyes, I see it as a drugstore frontrunner for quality, at unbeatable prices. These Megalast lippies were $3 each (buy 1, get 1 half off). Why buy ONE designer lipstick when you can buy 4 of them for one-third of the price!? These Megalast lip stains lasted all day without any touching up, and come in magnificent colors! When it comes to long days, sometimes a girl just does not want to have to always be concerned with checking for smudging or lipstick on the teeth. That’s why lip stains are so amazing! These shades are rich, pigmented and apply with a doe foot applicator. What I loved about the sponge doe foot is that it is bendable, and allows for precision when applying the lip color. These Megalast lippies also dry matte.
Lip stains are generally very drying to the lips so I applied lip balm before application. I recommend first doing a light application, and then apply more product as needed. Reason being that if there is too much, it will clump and be a bit messy. Also, blotting off excess can be a bit fussy with lip stains, therefore using tissue is not advised. This will leave shreds of tissue on your freshly painted lips. Think of it like fast-drying paint. It is best to let the paint air dry without letting your lips touch one another, to avoid a patchy mess. One thing I noticed about the Raisin the Roof color is that in the bottle it looks sparkly, and the shade appears dark reddish/maroon with sparkle. Upon application and even throughout the course of the day, the color appeared to be more of a magenta/berry color & and looked even more berry colored towards the end of the day. The sparkle gives more of a light sheen on the lips but ends up fading away and leaving behind a beautiful, mostly matte color. In photos, it sometimes photographed as red (shown below). Either way, it is a very unique shade that I am laaaaaaaving! If you are a lip stain lover or not wanting to worry about lipstick touch-ups ever again, I highly recommend all of these colors! Also, a giant thank you to my new blog followers! Your support is so stellar!!! Have a great weekend, lovelies!! xoxo ~Kelle
On my road trip to Norcal this week, I tested out my other three Megalast Lippies! I am torn between all of the shades!!! Circa the 11th hour, the lighter colors had wore off a bit for that “your lips but better” look. If I had to make up my mind as to which one is my favorite, I honestly do not know because they are all SO great!!! What I love about I Can Bare It, Iris I Was Rich, and Pocketful of Roses, is that you can wear all of these shades on the daily! Woohoo!!
Here is the swatch and review of these lippies:
