On Mommy's Vanity: Wet n' Wild Mega Last Lip Color



Wet n' wild truly has improved since the 80's. It is actually one of the best affordable imported brands you can find in the Philippines. Their best-sellers are their  eyeshadows and their lipsticks particularly the Mega Last Lip Colors.  


The claim:
 Lips take center stage! This 4-hour, longwearing lip color leaves a semi-matte, crème finish in one stroke. Glides on easily with rich, velvety color that doesn't cake, feather, or bleed. Made with hydrating skin-care ingredients: Hyaluronic Microspheres provide extraordinary adhesion to lips, an exclusive polymer complex offers cushion-like feel and texture, and natural marine plant extracts Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamins A & E help smooth lips.


OVERVIEW

Wet n' Wild can be found in SM department stores. Their products range from Php 119.00 to Php 499.00. You can get the Mega Last Lip Colors for Php. 299.00. These come in a long-wearing formula in 26 different shades although not all 26 colors are available here particularly the new shades. It is designed to last up to four hours while giving a rich, opaque coverage in one swipe in a creamy semi-matte finish. 

PACKAGING

I am not a fan tubes like this. The kind where a part of the lipstick is still exposed when you roll the tube down. It makes it easy to damage the product and I don't like it when my lipsticks break.

SCENT

I did not notice any scent or taste which is a good thing for me. A lot of cheap/affordable lipsticks sometimes have synthetic or waxy scent.

PIGMENT

This gives you amazing opaque pigment in one swipe. Most of the shades are true to color. Some of the shades will stain your lips like crazy while the lighter shades may appear chalky.

CONSISTENCY & LONGEVITY

This has a smooth and creamy texture. As I said it has a semi-matte finish with a very slight sheen but no frost or glitters. It's not really moisturizing and a little bit drying. It doesn't drag but little lip balm underneath makes application a whole lot better. The shade can last you four hours without eating a burger or anything oily.

These are the shades I currently have and I am planning to get more.
