I finally got around to trying out Wet N Wild’s MegaLast Lip Colors earlier this year. Since then, I’ve grown my collection quite a bit (and at roughly $2 a pop, it wasn’t hard – for me, or my wallet!).
What’s to love about them? For one, the MegaLast lippies provide full coverage color with a semi-matte finish – in just one coat. They feel amazingly comfortable on the lips, plus they’re packed with moisturizing ingredients like coenzyme Q10 and vitamins A & E, which keep the lips smooth and the color even. They’re also formulated with hyaluronic microspheres, which help the color last for 4+ hours – impressive for such a budget-friendly lipstick!
Today I wanted to share swatches of the first 7 in my collection, most of which are on the lighter end of the shade spectrum. (Part 2,
coming Friday, will include all the deeper shades you can check out here!)
Wet n Wild MegaLast Lip Color in ‘Bare It All’ (902C) – This is a really pretty pinky-beige nude that goes with just about every type of look – simple, dramatic, cool-toned, and warm-toned. I also don’t find it to be too light for my light-medium skin, ~NC25 in MAC (which is often a struggle for me with these types of shades).
Wet n Wild MegaLast Lip Color in ‘Just Peachy’ (903C) – Just Peachy is a bright pinky coral. It’s a pretty summertime shade, if you can pull it off. Sadly on me, it’s a bit too bright, too warm, and too light, so I rarely find myself reaching for this one.
Wet n Wild MegaLast Lip Color in ‘In the Flesh’ (912C) – This is medium rose that’s quite muted and neutral toned, so it works well with almost any look. I often find myself grabbing it when I want a very natural and subtle, yet polished lip look.
Wet n Wild MegaLast Lip Color in ‘Rosebud’ (904B)* – Rosebud is one of my favorites. It’s a medium, slightly warmed-up rose-pink with a little extra ‘pop’ that really enhances the lips. It also transitions amazingly well from day to night.
Wet n Wild MegaLast Lip Color in ‘Wine Room’ (906D) – Wine Room is a deep rose-pink that’s perfect for creating a more classic evening look. It’s very similar to Rosebud, only a touch darker with more red tones than pink.
Wet n Wild MegaLast Lip Color in ‘Smokin’ Hot Pink’ (905D) – This is another one of my personal favorites. It’s a vibrant, slightly warmed-up dark pink that’s really fun to wear for an evening out.
Wet n Wild MegaLast Lip Color in ‘Mauve Outta Here’ (907C) – And finally, we have a cool medium purple. Now, purples are often tricky for me – they can easily make me look tired, washed out, and pale. Fortunately this one isn’t super cool or blue-toned. I find it actually complements my skin tone rather well and looks great paired with silvers and cool taupe shadows on the eyes.
