Wet N Wild Megalast Lipstick



I remember my first self-bought lipstick, which is a beautiful shade of pink. After that purchase, I’ve figured that pink lippies would be my lip color forever but I stand corrected. I loved nudes and reds and I came up with the realization that any color can look good on me long as I get the perfect shade fit for my skin tone. I haven’t always been into makeup and started getting hooked only when I graduated college so finding the right shade of lipstick for me was an adventure I enjoyed and although I know what shades will already look decent on me, it’s still quite tempting to buy the shades just so you can go give ‘em a try.


Then, I went back to buying pink lipsticks again and this time, I tried the Wet N Wild Megalast Lipstick in Smokin’ Hot Pink or 905D shade. It is said to be a longwearing lip color, which will leave a semi-matte, crème finish in one stroke. Oh and it’s made with hydrating skin-care ingredients: Hyaluronic Microspheres provide extraordinary adhesion to lips, an exclusive polymer complex offers cushion-like feel and texture, and natural marine plant extracts Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamins A & E help smooth lips.

The Good Bits:

Looking at the packaging it looks classy and sophisticated. I love how it glides smoothly on my lips and lasts for a few hours until I eat. It doesn’t bleed and it’s so easy to apply all over my lips. I’m glad that I got a shade, which looks good, girly and subtle on me. Oh, and is it just me or is there a light sweet fruity scent in it? I love semi-matte finish it gives my lips and although it doesn’t dry up my lips (probably because of its hydrating ingredients), I still prefer using it on top of my lip balm.

The Bad Bits:

Yes, the packaging looks classy and sophisticated but upon picking it up, it feels kind of cheap and fragile. What’s up with cheap-looking lipstick casing from Wet N Wild? And although I love the shade and its effect on my lips, I don’t like the fact that it’s almost as creamy as the NYX Round Lipstick that I feel like it will melt easily. It has already left a smudge on top of its case.

Over-All:


I love the result on my lips but I don’t like how it’s kind of poorly made. I’m giving this a rating of 7/10. There’s a lot to improve with regard to the presentation of the product but the result on my lips are awesome. You might want to give this one a try if you don’t mind a cheap-feeling packaging.

    1. it didn't but it almost as it already left a smudge on its cap even before I've broken the seal of this product.

  3. Love the color on your lips.
    When you mentioned the words - "my first self-bought lipstick" -- I thought long and hard what lipstick that was and I still have no clue, lol.
