I first tried one of these liquid catsuit matte lipsticks from Wet n Wild over the Summer after reading lots of good reports about them on different social media channels. The first shade I tried Give Me Mocha, was a lovely caramel shade with gorgeous pigment so I had high hopes for today’s shade too.
In a nutshell, I really wasn’t disappointed by either the shade or pigment, and the soft coral tone was just lovely. It wasn’t as bright as most corals, but I quite liked the neutral feel of it, especially for an autumn day.
The colour payoff is brilliant and though it is a liquid formula, it’s not too wet meaning it has a nice creamy feel to it too. It blends well and doesn’t drag the colour like some liquid lipsticks, and once dry, has a lovely soft matte finish with excellent staying power.
I did find it got quite dry as the day went on, but not so dry that I disliked it which made all the difference. I needed to reapply it after eating, more to even out the colour than anything else as it did wear off a little after lunch. In saying that, it still held much better than I though it would so I didn’t mind.
Another thing I really like about this is the coverage it gives to the lips; when I first applied it I thought it might be a bit sheer but it actually dries in to give a fuller coverage than you’d expect.
I’ve really come to like these lipsticks and will definitely be wearing this shade again – I think it will be particularly nice in Spring too.
I’ve tried quite a few of these balm stain lip crayons from Wet n Wild over the duration of my challenge, and most of them I have quite liked. The last shade I tried, See If I Carrot, however disappointed me a little, and I’m kind of feeling the same way about today’s shade.
Firstly, I do have to say that as budget lip crayons go, these have a nice formula. They are quite creamy and glide on to the lips easily – part of the reason why I’m such a big fan of lip crayons in general.
Where it falls down a little for me though with today’s shade is on pigment. I’ve tried some shades in this range that have had excellent pigment like Rico Mauve for example which I loved, but this shade was just a little too frosty and not enough opaque for me.
I hugely dislike frosty finish lipsticks so really I should have guessed when I first looked at it that it might not be for me, but as you all know, I like to give everything a chance. Sadly it was not meant to be today.
The formula of this crayon has a shimmer element to it, and sometimes that can look great on, leaving more of a metallic finish that pops. However, for me, this one just looked like an old school frosty pink lip and I couldn’t bring myself to really like it at all.
I also noticed it didn’t have the same stain element that some of the other shades have, which given the name, was a bit disappointing also.
As the saying goes; you win some, you lose some, and unfortunately today, this was a losing one I’m afraid.
I first tried out one of these liquid catsuit matte lipsticks from Wet n Wild a few months back, and although it wasn’t my favourite Wet n Wild lippy, I did quite like it. The shade and pigment were both nice and the lasting power wasn’t bad either.
Today’s shade is a paler shade, a kind of nude peach with a pastel note to it, and the first thing I noticed was that the pigment wasn’t as good in this as it was in the previous shade I tried, Give Me Mocha.
When I first applied it, it didn’t have an opaque finish and was quite wet in texture, meaning it dragged the colour rather than allowing it to blend easily. To try combat this, I let it dry in, then reapplied a few layers to build up the colour but it didn’t quite have the finish I was hoping for.
I don’t remember the consistency being quite so wet the first time I tried this, but even though it was wet, it did still have a nice feel to it. It left my lips feeling smooth, and didn’t dry them out during the day as I wore it.
As I quite liked it the first time around, I was a little disappointed with this one today. Had the formula been a little creamier, I think I would have been happier with it and I also think the paler colour may have had an impact on how good the pigment was. It’s a shame because I had high hopes for it this morning.
Have you tried out one of these lippies yet or do you have a favourite liquid lipstick? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Many of my regular followers will know that I’ve become quite the fan of these balm stain lip crayons from Wet n Wild over the last six or so months of my challenge. I’ve always liked lip crayons in general, my favourite being Clinique’s Chubby Sticks, but I’ve been pretty impressed by some of the more budget friendly brands lately too.
These balm stains are soft, creamy and very nice to wear on the lips. Up to now, I’ve pretty much given all the shades I’ve tried a fairly positive review, some even great reviews. However, for the first time today, I’m a little disappointed.
The shade itself is a lovely orange shade, it’s more orange than coral so I was a bit dubious at first, but it actually looks very nice on, especially as it was a sunny day. The formula is creamy so it does feel like a balm as expected, but for some reason I felt that it wasn’t quite as blendable as previous shades.
Maybe it’s because the finish is sheer, but I found the colour dragged as I was blending which was a little annoying. It also didn’t give the same pop of colour that I’m used to with these and the stain element was very uneven.
Now in the interests of fairness, my lips are slightly drier than normal at the moment so maybe it’s me, and not the lippy itself. But even still, I kind of felt a bit irritated by it and half way through the day ended up putting some lip balm on to blend it all out properly.
You win some you lose some as the saying goes, and today’s choice for me was on the losing side. It was fine, but didn’t quite give me the smile that I’m used to getting from these.
Over the last few weeks, I’ve seen these new megalast liquid lipsticks pop up on lots of social media pages and naturally, I became very excited to give these a try.
Most of you will know by now, that where lipsticks are concerned, Wet n Wild is a budget brand that has really impressed me over the last seven months, given I had never tried any of their lipsticks before starting my challenge.
I’m beginning to tire a little of the liquid lipstick trend – it’s everywhere at the moment and several brands are jumping on the trend bandwagon. Now don’t get me wrong, some of my favourite lipsticks from the challenge are liquid lipsticks, but sometimes too much of a good thing can leave you feeling a bit unexcited about it.
Because of that, I was really hoping that these would give me some renewed excitement about the liquid lip and I have to say, it really did! It helps that I love the colour, and that the staying power is excellent, but mostly, I loved the pigment and colour pay off I got when I wore it.
A lot of liquid formulas have good pigment, but the matte finish on this made it even better and it had gave a lovely opaque coverage too. I don’t think it’s my favourite Wet n Wild offering, I do prefer their megalast matte lipsticks, but it was nice to wear and a good budget choice.
Have any of you tried these yet? I’m reading lots of good comments about them on Instagram so I’d love to hear what you guys think!
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.
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.
