Hello friends! Welcome to a new weekly series in my blog called “Shop My Stash”! I’ve been wanting to do this for a while because while I always talk about new makeup I’ve gotten, I don’t often talk about the oldies but goodies I have in my makeup collection! Before anyone gets too excited, no, nothing here will be for sale. Sorry to disappoint!
Today I’ve got for you the Wet n Wild MegaLast lip color. You’ve probably heard of these because there are few beauty bloggers out there who don’t rave about them! They’re amazing quality, very comfortable to wear and the best part is, they’re only two dollars a pop! How could you say no?
I’ve had a handful of these but recently I’ve been inspired by KathleenLights’ videos to get some more colors to add to my collection, so I thought these would be a good first installment to my series. Let’s move on to the colors themselves, shall we?
From left to right, we’ve got:
- Wine Room is a dusty pink with a little mauve in it, but definitely more pink than mauve.
- Sugar Plum Fairy is a dark berry purple that is a very good dupe for MAC’s Rebel.
- Smokin’ Hot Pink is not as hot or as bright as I imagined it! It’s more of a darker pink and a great day shade.
- Don’t Blink Pink is a much brighter, cool-toned pink but still not quite neon.
- Stoplight Red is a classic cool-toned red that reminds me of MAC’s Ruby Woo.
- Pinkerbell is a very bright, very cool pink.
- Cherry Picking is a dark berry pink, a perfect fall color.
- Rose-bud is very similar to Wine Room but a little lighter. It’s a pink-ish nude (or nude-ish pink).
- Red Velvet is a bright, eye-catching red that reminds me of Kat Von D’s Underage Red.
- Lastly, Mauve Outta Here is exactly what it says: mauve.
From top to bottom: Mauve Outta Here, Red Velvet, Rose-bud, Cherry Picking, Pinkerbell, Stoplight Red, Don’t Blink Pink, Smokin’ Hot Pink, Sugar Plum Fairy, and Wine Room. The quality on these is amazing. They’re creamy, not very drying (but still matte), and they last a pretty long time. I don’t think I could love these more than I do, to be completely honest.
That being said, they do have a few downsides (but I still love them). First is the packaging. Like I said earlier, they only cost two dollars each, which is a great price for the quality, but as far as the packaging goes, you definitely get what you paid for. The packaging itself looks cheap, gets dirty really easily as the tube doesn’t roll down all the way, and just doesn’t look pretty.
The other downside is that since the tip is round, it can make precise application a little trickier. If you’re a pro at applying lipstick, you probably won’t struggle too much, but if putting lipstick on and keeping it within the lines (regardless of where you drew them!) is something you can’t do, then this lipstick will take some practice to apply.
That being said, these are small prices to pay for the quality of the product itself and how little you pay, right?
Do you guys own any of these? Do you love them? Hate them? Love to hate them? Let me know in the comments!
