Simply Lippy Challenge Day 209 | Wet n Wild Megalast Matte Lipstick in Shade 905D, Smokin’ Hot Pink

I’m sure you already know that as budget lipsticks go, Wet n Wild is one of those brands that has really surprised me over the past few months. Some of their lipsticks I have liked more than others, but one I’ve become a big fan of is their Megalast collection.

These lipsticks initially give you the impression of being quite dry, but once you start to blend on the lips, the creamy element comes through and they blend much easier than you would expect.

Not only do they blend easily however, the pigment is bold and brilliant, and you get excellent colour pay off from just a few light layers of application, especially with a bright shade like this one.

It’s not a hydrating lipstick, but I definitely think it gives some moisurisation as it’s not drying, and has a soft cream finish which feels really nice to wear.

I did reapply it during the day but only once, and that was after eating lunch. So if it’s staying power you’re after, then this is a brilliant budget friendly option.

Have any of you tried these Wet n Wild lippies? As always, send your thoughts and comments my way as I’d love to hear what you think.

Simply Lippy Challenge Day 188 | Wet n Wild Megalast Lip Colour in Shade E968, Pinkerbell

Wet n Wild is one of the budget beauty brands that has impressed the most throughout my lipstick challenge; their matte range is a new favourite, and their megalast collection are pretty good too.

First things first, for some reason I was expecting them to be very drying, but actually they aren’t at all and that’s particularly true of today’s megalast shade, Pinkerbell.

When you first go to apply it, it does initially feel dry but as soon as you start blending, the dryness goes away and you are left with a creamy finish and a gorgeous pigment.

While the colour pay off is brilliant for a budget lippy, sadly today’s shade did let me down slightly. From the look of it, I was expecting a bright salmon coral shade, but it is actually much more pink than that, and therefore, not my favourite shade that I’ve tried from them.

Some pinks depending on the richness, can be gorgeous on, but I’m very fussy when it comes to pink and this one just didn’t quite hit the mark for me.

In saying that, the staying power was really good as it always is with these lippies, and I do really like the formula.
