Wet n Wild Megalast Lip Color Review, Swatches, LOTD and Buy Online
– Spiked With Rum 915B
‘Wet n Wild’ is a quite popular drugstore store brand in the US known for its amazing quality makeup products at super affordable rates. I always wanted to try Wet n Wild products, but the online site here charge a bomb plus it’s difficult to speculate the shade. During my Bangkok Shopping was thrilled to come across this brand. Though there weren’t too many products available and a few of them did not have testers either, I just picked up a lipstick that I loved the most. Its finally time that I review the shade that I have been wearing a lot these days -The Wet n Wild Megalast Lip Color in the shade 915B ‘Spiked with Rum’.

Package Description: The Wet n Wild Megalast lipsticks come in a simple black case with transparent cap. The packaging is simple and you can easily select a shade as the lipstick colour can be seen through the transparent cap. As the lipstick bullet does not retract completely you just have to be a bit careful, the cap can streak the lipstick while opening and closing. The transparent plastic cap is secure but does seem very sturdy as it might not survive a fall. I haven’t had issue with my lipstick yet but I am sure that these caps are prone to crack or break with a big fall. I just wish the packaging was a bit sturdy but at this price I really can’t complain.
The shades are numbered as well as named so it’s easy to find out a particular shade. The shade name gives you a rough idea about the colour and sounds quite interesting too. I really love how the shades have are named – Mauve Outta Here, Cherry Bomb, Spolight Red, Think Pink, just to name a few.
Texture: The texture is soft and buttery. It glides on easily on your lips and does not bleed. It has a matte finish with a bit of sheen so it’s great for dry lips too. After a few hours the lipstick sets dry and can highlight the rough patches so it’s better to exfoliate your lips beforehand and moisturise them. The formula is awesome and my super dry lips love it with a lip balm underneath.
Shade: The shade ‘Spiked with Rum’ is a lovely warm dusty rose shade with red and brown undertones. It’s difficult to describe the shade but it looks like dusty pink during the day and in the evenings it moves more towards being brown. The shade is gorgeous and quite versatile, I am sure it will suit almost all skin tones.
Pigmentation and Staying Power: The pigmentation is mind blowing and a single swipe can cover even the most pigmented lips. You can obviously build up the shade if you want to. This is one of those rare lipsticks that stays on for more hours than it claims. I had this lipstick for more than 6-7 hours and even survived mild snacking. Plus the lipstick stains big time so at the end of the day you will still need a makeup remover to get rid of it completely.
