The $2 Lipstick better than MAC!


If you haven’t tried a Wet n’ Wild lipstick yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? If you live in America, hot-foot it down to your nearest drugstore PRONTO, if you’re anywhere else in the World, get clicking on Amazon NOW.

What makes Wet n’ Wild Megalast Lipsticks so special? Well aside for the $2 price tag (or 1 or 3 depending where you shop) the pigmentation is phenomenal. What you see is what you get. They’re completely opaque – one swipe is all it took for these photos. In fact, I was tempted to just upload the photos and let them do the talking, but then I do love to ramble on. Of all the lipsticks I’ve ever tried (MAC included), these have my favourite texture and finish. They have a unique crème-matte texture – they look matte but feel creamy. Application is effortless with a glide-on buttery texture and unlike most mattes, they don’t set or dry out, the creamy matte texture remains - rubbing your lips together is totally allowed! Wear time is also pretty incredible – they keep going around 3-4 hours and don't dry my lips out.

My love for Wet n’ Wild lipsticks began in 2013 in my first US beauty swap. I’ve now got seven Megalast Lipsticks in the collection and I'd happily have more…


Pink Suga – despite the name I find this more peachy than pink. I’d sum it up as a peachy nude.
Just Peachy – a lovely mid toned pinky peach
Bare It All – A brown toned nudey pink, bit of a Teddy Velvet Dupe.
Think Pink – this was my first WnW lippy, a pale blue toned pink similar to MAC’s much loved Crème Cup and Angel.
Don’t Blink Pink – a bright berry pink, reminds me a little of MAC impassioned but more pink.
Smokin’ Hot Pink – a vivid reddy/pink – like a strawberry.
Cherry Bomb – how delicious is this one! A true dark cherry red. Strangely it’s less Matte than the others, maybe more of a satin. Don’t be fooled by the picture, I know it looks super sheeny – that’s the sun.

My most used shade is Think Pink, but then I have had that the longest. My current fave is Bare It All, a perfect everyday nude. And looking at these swatches I need to wear Cherry Bomb right now! The only thing I don't love is the packaging... it's pretty cheap looking and lids sometimes pop off when they feel like it. But if they started tarting up the packaging, they'd be changing a lot more than $2. It’s what’s inside that counts!

Super pigmented, completely opaque, long-lasting and cheap as chips, what's not to love?


*You can pick them up in places like Walgreens for $1.99, or on Amazon for around £5 with postage*

  2. I actually bought into the hype about these and bought many colors. I actually threw all of them out not even a month later. They dried out so bad and became so hard to wear that they weren't worth it. I know so many people love these, but I think they're one of the worst lipsticks I've tried.

  5. I love Bare It All, it's such a flattering nude. These are excellent (unbeatable, really) value, super matte but creamy and not drying, plus the pigmentation is on point!

    1. Hi Laura, I WISH! It was creme blush that i loved. MAC replaced them with cremeblend but the colours and textures are totally different. Thanks so much for thinking of me though x
