If you have read some of my past blog posts, I wasn't kidding when I said I am a lipstick girl. By that what I mean is I absolutely love trying on different lipsticks in different shades. One of the best lipstick product that impressed me a lot are the ones from Wet n Wild cosmetics. Ever since I bought one of their mega last lipstick, I just went gaga over it! Let me tell you why on this review!~
Recently, in addition to the only Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Cover that I have, I bought two more lippies in the same line but in different shades.
First I bought the shade called "Vamp It Up" which is a dark violet shade. It actually looks like black in some photos, but well it's violet. Like dark violet. lelx. You'll know what I mean once you'll see more photos below!
I always love to try lipsticks that are bolder and darker in color that's why I decided to purchase this shade. Well, actually the real reason is for me to wear this one during the Halloween season. But for some reasons, I wasn't able to wear at that time.
The color is pretty dope as the lipstick itself is very pigmented, but as you can see, to pull off such shade requires a lip liner. I found it a little bit difficult to put on this shade because it might go all over outside the area of my lips knowing that I don't have any lip liner that matches with it. If you wanna try this shade, you just have to carefully apply the lipstick on your lips.
By the way, aside from a costume or Halloween party, I do not know when to wear this shade yet. I just thought it would look too overwhelming if Ill wear this one on a normal basis. lol. Don't you think? Any sort of suggestions would be very welcome in the comment section below.
Ooopps, a thought just spark within my brain. This shade could be a really good deal if you just wanna channel the inner goth in you! ehehhehe Right now I am thinking of creating a look that will make us of this shade, stay tuned! :)
Cinnamon Spice, as you can see, is a dark red shade. It might look too bold for an everyday look, especially if you are working in school like me, but you can always use the lipstick by just dabbing it all over your lips.
Bare It All actually reminds me of the Kardashian lip colors except that theirs' are glossy and Wet n Wild's Bare It All is matte. I wear this shade if I go somewhere off key, I mean somewhere that I don't really need so much color in my face. I sometimes use this in my work too although it's nothing usual since I still go for MAC's lipstick because of its longevity.
Here's a photo of their swatches:
Just like any other beauty products, the price of the lipsticks may vary depending on where you purchased them. I got the lipsticks for 200php each (that's roughly 5USD) from an online shop.
WHERE TO PURCHASE
I got mine from an online shop but I think the lipsticks are very much available in malls. You just have to check because sometimes, some of the shades aren't available, which is the reason why I bought my lippies in an online shop instead of buying them in malls or any beauty outlet.
- long lasting
- very pigmented
- available in many shades
- doesn't feel dry even though it's matte
- has a subtle peculiar smell
- some of the shades are difficult to find
- may be hard to apply and to store
For the price of 200php each (5USD), I have to say that the lipstick is a really great score. Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Cover are all in matte but they aren't drying on the lips. It doesn't crack my lips or make it feel dry at all. Without any retouch, the color could lasts for up to four to five hours, also depending on the color you are wearing.
If you have tried the product, you'd agree with me about its smell. Nothing's really bad though, it's just that it's a bit peculiar. I don't know, I just wish it smells buttery like MAC or NYX but it doesn't. I don't think the creators thought about the smell but it's fine. Another main concern about the product is that it's quite difficult to store. The lipstick doesn't go all the way down on its tube making its cap messy (as you might notice on the first photo). For shades that are bolder just like the Vamp It Up shade, you really have to use a lip liner in applying it. Or if you are really good in applying lipsticks, then you just have to be careful. From my own experience, it's difficult to find some of its shades that's why if you want to purchase them, you have to really further your search.
In totality, Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Cover lipsticks are great if you are looking for an affordable but high quality matte lipstick. It also comes in so many beautiful shades in beautiful names so you can always find the best shade for you.
