[Review]Wet ‘n’ Wild Megalast Lipstick

Wet ‘n’ Wild is a super affordable makeup brand with pretty good quality make up. I decided to pick up two of their Megalast Lipsticks which retails for $2. This is extremely affordable. I picked up two colors Just Peachy and Cherry Bomb. One thing that I noticed right off the bat is that the formula for both lipsticks seemed to be different.

Here is what the packaging looks like. On the left is Just Peachy and on the right is Cherry Bomb. The packaging felt a fit cheap but for a lipstick that costs only $2, it was not a big deal.

On the left is Just Peachy which is a light nude peach color. One the right is Cherry Bomb which is an amazing dark red color which I was excited to try since I do not have any lipsticks of such color. The color payoff for both is amazing.

Here is a picture of my lips with no product only lip balm.

This is what Just Peachy looks like on my lips and I have to say I am very disappointed. The color went on a bit sheer and the color did not flatter my skin tone at all. I found that it made my lips look very dry and it did not go on smoothly.

This is what Cherry Bomb looks like and this one went on more smoothly in comparison to Just Peachy and it flatters my skin tone a lot more. However, it does look a bit drying since I forgot to apply lip balm underneath.

Pros

  • Very affordable- $2 for one lipstick is such a steal!
  • Very pigmented
  • No strange scents
  • Glides on mostly smoothly
  • Wide range of color-there are 20 colors out

Cons

  • Not overly moisturizing-lip balm is needed underneath
  • Does not last very long around four hours
  • The formula seems very inconsistent

Overall, I would repurchase this product, they are super affordable for lipsticks and they are of pretty good quality. Although I am disappointed that the formula is inconsistent, however for such an affordable price I do not mind too much. I would stick to darker colors in the future though since those do suit my skin tone better.
