I opted to do a review for this wonderful lipsticks that I got from the drugstore, the Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color.
I am more of an eye person rather than lip person so I'm huge on eyeshadows than lipsticks and other lip products (except perhaps a lip balm) but lately I have been using lipsticks and buying quite a lot of lipsticks. My interest in Wet n Wild products have grown since I purchased a few of the Color Icon Palettes (which I will also do a review on) and since a lot of beauty bloggers have highly spoken of this product too so I thought that it will be nice to try this brand's lippie.
The Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color boasts of a 4-hour staying power with a semi-matte to creme finish as well as a rich and velvety color and application. Indeed upon use, the product has proven true to its description. This product retails at $3-4 at the drugstore.
I bought the first shade which is 917B Cinnamon Spice, a vampy red color, a few days ago and purchased the two other lip shades yesterday. The other two shades I picked up was 902C Bare It All, a nude shade with a peachy tone, and 905D Smokin' Hot Pink, a bright fuschia pink. I was surprisingly satisfied with the product.
The moment I first applied the lipstick I noticed the moisturizing formula and the highly pigmented color application. It had smoothed and coated my lip ridges/wrinkles evenly. The lipstick is not long-lasting but it did make it through my 4-hour experiment. It stayed on like how I applied it for 2 hours and afterwards it faded a little bit but there was still some color on my lips after 4 hours.
The only con that I have found for this product is its packaging. True, it does look good but the packaging is flimsy and I'm quite afraid I might break the case if I drop it hard or something. Whenever I take out the cover and try to twist the product up I hear rattling sounds. Also, the tube doesn't have it's name written on the bottom but only the shade number. The shade name is written on the plastic film tag that you peel from the cap.
Aside from these complaints it is a great lipstick that is quite a nice bargain for its price. I highly recommend this product. I'm not bashing MAC lippies here but compared to my MAC lipsticks I'm preferring the Wet N Wild lip colors for their richness and smoothness plus their cheap price. :)
