I know I disappeared again. Let’s not talk about it.
Over the summer, I talked about these lip colors from Wet N Wild. I did swatches and reviews of each color that I had. You might know, that liquid lipsticks became a game changer in my makeup life. Before then I didn’t wear lipstick because I had the tendency to rub my lips together and rub them off very quickly. Since then, I have tripled my lipstick collection and I wanted to talk about the other ones I got and how they compare to the Megalast Liquid Lips.
For awhile I was content with my six shades I had until… I saw an Instagram video of the Wet N Wild Megalast Liquid Catsuits. The colors available were so stunning that I was on a hunt for them. I ended up with another six shades when all was said and done.
Here's the rest of the @wetnwildbeauty #liquidcatsuit I got over the past few weeks. The formula is so good, the only downside is they do transfer a bit and if you eat or drink you have to reapply. But they reapply so smoothly. From left to right I have #nudiepatootie, #rebelrose, #pinkreallyhard, #coralcorruption, #givememocha, and #gothtopic. The only one I don't like is Nudie Patootie because it makes me look dead. Just not a good match.
Since I’m being as lazy as humanly possible doing this post, above is the my collection from that line. I have Nudie Patootie, Rebel Rose, Pink Really Hard, Coral Corruption, Give Me Mocha, and Goth Topic. As it says in my pictured Instagram post, I don’t like Nudie Patootie. It doesn’t work with my skin tone. I’m pale so this color just makes me look like a corpse. I love all the other colors though.
So, if you recall I mentioned the Megalasts are definitely long-wearing. However, if you do need to reapply, you need to be very careful as they do get clumpy. But they don’t transfer and they don’t fade quickly so you may not even need to.
Well. The Catsuits work a bit differently. I will say this. They are not as long-wearing even though they’re technically part of the MegaLast line. They’ll last for awhile but they do fade, and their weakness is totally food and drink. The trade-off here is that they reapply really well. When you go to touch them up, they don’t go on clumpy and they’re nice and even. I almost kind of prefer that. Not sure why. The color selection is this line is amazing too. There’s a good range of color between nude to bold to choose from. I think they are only a dollar more than the original Megalasts which still puts them around $4.
Next up, I really wanted to try the liquid lips by ColorPop. I found a mini set of the Ultra Matte Lips called “Foxy” for $18. If I’m being completely honest, I would not buy a mini box set again because they are really tiny for what you pay. Especially considering a full sized one is like $5 (maybe 6?) so you might as well just buy the full sized ones. The set came with 5 mini Ultra Matte Lips.
Going on a makeup no buy for a little while after this. But I got this set of @colourpopcosmetics minis called Foxy. From left to right it's #clueless, #tulle, #creeper, #morebetter, and #beeper. Clueless is my favorite. It's an even better natural lip than Rebel Rose for me. More Better is really awesome too.
I have Clueless, Tulle, Creeper, More Better, and Beeper, as it says above. All of them are really pretty colors. But I think Tulle is pretty close to Give Me Mocha from the Catsuits so I usually reach for Give Me Mocha instead. I love Clueless as a natural lip and I would totally buy the full size if I run out. The minis are difficult to work with because the wand is so small. I added all of these to my “emergency makeup kit” which is the upside of having the minis. More Better is really unique, and is what drew me to the set to begin with. I would definitely look into getting more of these in the future, maybe not right now. The formula seems to have the best of both worlds from my two different Wet N Wild ones. They’re quite long-wearing, but they also reapply smoothly. Some colors passed the kiss transfer test and some didn’t, I don’t really remember which ones were which.
And now it’s time for me to disappear into the night for another two months. I mean, I’m really going to try not to, but we all know I will.
What’s your favorite affordable liquid lipstick?
