Alright, I don’t think I’ve done anything like this on my blog but I’ve been getting a little more into lip products so I thought I’d talk about a recent discovery here.
As I was wandering around CVS one day, picking up a last minute wedding card (last minute, story of my life) I came across the Wet n Wild MegaLast Liquid Lip Color. The lipsticks I use are by Wet n Wild and I’ve always thought they were just okay. I mean, they were good for being 99 cents, but they really didn’t last long. Especially for me, since I have a bad habit of rubbing my lips together and biting them a lot. For that reason, I don’t really wear lipstick all that much anyway. But I saw these and remembered hearing pretty good things about them. And they were on sale. So I grabbed a couple. Apparently they’re not really found anywhere other than CVS, at least not as far as I’ve been able to tell. Since I don’t really frequent CVS, that’s probably why I’ve never seen them before.
I am obsessed. I’m sure that there’s better ones out there but those were the ones I wanted to try since the price point is phenomenal. And I love them! I now have six shades so those are the ones I’m going to talk about. I went with a pretty decent range of colors, so I don’t necessarily see the need to get any more just yet, but who knows. It’s not like they’re terribly expensive. But these are the ones I have right now so they’re the ones I’ll swatch and talk about.
First off, let me just talk about them as a group. The application is just like a lip gloss, which might turn most people away but I like it. It actually gives me more control. It feels really glossy at first but it dries pretty quickly and then it looks beautiful! The only problem I’ve had so far is when you try to touch them up they can get kind of clumpy. You really have to work it out and be careful. Other than that, they last a long time without having to touch them up, and they don’t smudge off. I was super excited when I gave Grizz a big kiss on the cheek and it didn’t rub off!
So next, the shades.
First up is “Raisin the Roof.”
This one is my darkest shade and it has a slight shimmer to it. It looks like a dark red in the tube, but I guess by the title it’s supposed to be like a raisin color, so maybe a dark purple? That’s not really what it looks like to me when I wear it, but it does show through in the swatch. I really like this one. I was going for a rock star look last weekend so I paired it with a deep smokey eye and it looked stunning!
The next one is “Cherry on Top”
and as you could probably guess, it’s a bright cherry red. It’s definitely one that’s only good with specific looks, but it’s really pretty.
Next, I got “Red My Mind”
because I really love to do a very natural face with a classic red lip once in awhile. Something about it looks really fresh and classic. There’s nothing much to say about this shade other than it’s perfect for that. The swatches of “Cherry on Top” and “Red My Mind” look pretty similar, but “Cherry on Top” is definitely more vibrant on my lip. “Red My Mind” just looks way more classic.
Now for my favorite, “Pocketful of Roses.”
This one is just a very nice pink. It’s not a nude or natural sort of pink, it has a little bit of a pop but it’s still super subtle. I actually ended up wearing this one to the wedding I was talking about. And for most makeup looks, I find myself reaching for that one the most because it’s just so perfect for almost everything.
Okay, so on to “Click on My Hyperpink”
This is a really bold pink, really bold. I think it’s just something nice to have in the collection in case you want a bold look. The swatch and the tube color remind me of “Pink Ice” from their dollar collection which was my favorite shade from there, but when I wear it on my lip it is WAY more bold. I’ll probably save this for a super specific occasion, it’s honestly a bit much.
This one is “Pink Perfection”
and it’s a very nude pink. It’s very, very sheer and has a nice shimmer to it. I really like this when I want a bold eye look so I don’t want my lips to be doing too much. This is definitely something that can be used for a nice every day look as well.
All in all, I find these to be wonderful for the price point, which I believe was around $3 a tube, maybe less. They were buy 2 get 1 free at CVS when I first picked them up which really made them worth it for me. I think some shades are a little harder to work with than others, so I will say to watch out for that. Like, when I was saying they can get kind of clumpy when you reapply, I feel that was more true for “Pink Perfection” and “Click On My Hyperpink” than the others. I’m not sure why that is. I feel that may be a dealbreaker for some people but it didn’t really bother me, it just meant I had to take an extra second to make sure I smooth it out nicely. So, despite all that, this was actually a game changer in my makeup routine because it really made me want to actually wear lip color!
