I shamefully have to admit that this post has been a year in the making. When I read American blogs (or US hauls for that matter) I often find myself sighing at the plethora of fabulous drugstore brands/products that never seem to make it to UK shores. Thanks to one to many rave reviews at least half of my wishlist contains products that are a good 12 hour flight across the atlantic or mere hop on the Eurostar away. The number one brand being Wet n Wild. So when the beautiful Trina sent me three of the Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Colours many moons ago I was thrilled to say the least.So were the semi-matte, creme finish lipsticks worth the many hours lost swooning over various reviews?
Il admit that the simple, black plastic packaging is nothing to shout home about. However that being said the product itself more than makes up for it. Considering the lipsticks are under $2 a piece, I cant get over how well they perform. These smooth, seriously pigmented lip colours have amazing colour pay off, apply effortlessly and last reasonably well.
Have I also mentioned that the colour selection is superb? With 20 lipsticks in a range of eye catching shades. The three I have are Cherry Picking, a red with pink undertones that has been described as a dupe for Love Goddess from the MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection. Dont Blink Pink, a bright fuchsia that has been likened to MACs Chatterbox, and Pinkerbell, a coral toned bubblegum pink which has also been described as a dupe for a well loved MAC lipstick (Viva Glam Nicki).
Overall, the Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Colours, are fairly smooth and seriously pigmented. In terms of longevity they last around 3-4 hours. Unlike most vibrant shades they dont bleed or smudge, and with just one swipe are opaque. In terms of price, for a mere $2 you really are getting your moneys worth and then some. Sadly these aren't readily available (theres always eBay right?), however with the budget brand now available in Ireland, theres still hope for us yet!
