Wet N Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Color Review

20130304_135057_wm

So I went to Walgreens to get something and of course I just HAD to go to the cosmetics section.  This hot pink lipgloss called “Click on my HyperPink” from Wet N Wild caught my eye so I took that baby home with me. Here is what Wet N Wild had to say about this product:

“Intense liquid color with built-in moisturizer provides one-step application for weightless, ultra-conditioning wear that lasts up to 8 hours. ElastiSilk™ formula combines flexible color adhesion with silky-smooth pigments for transfer-proof, even application. Paraben-free formula conditions and moisturizes with vitamin E that helps promote anti-aging, protects the skin’s moisture barrier, and balances the lip’s natural hydration for a healthy-looking, plump pout all day.”

It had a flat double sided doe foot applicator which I don’t mind. So when I first applied it I thought this was a lipgloss….but no maam! This is more of a lip cream that dries really, really, really MATTE! Wet n Wild claims that the product is moisturizing but I have to disagree. As the gloss dries it really feels like it is sucking the moisture out of your lips. Also it is VERY sticky! Especially after you eat your lips look really crazy. But these babies are SUPER pigmented which I love!

This is what one dried layer looks like after you blot your lips together. Because its sticky your lips stick together when you blot, your lips end up like this.

This pic is after the previous pic. I applied another layer and when it dried I applied the Maybelline baby lips lip balm on top.

I have been trying out different ways to make wearing this product more comfortable and so far putting Maybelline’s Baby Lips balm on first before applying the lip cream  seems to act like a barrier and doesn’t make it feel as drying. It also helped with the removal of the product as well.  When I put this product on my lips with no type of lip balm this sucker was very difficult to remove off of my lips. Since the balm makes it more moisturizing it made it easier when I wanted to remove it.

I really wanted to love this product but unfortunately I don’t.  Will I still wear it? Yes because I love this neon pink color! It’s just something I would only wear for a short period of time and not all day. Would I repurchase? Probably not until the formulation changes. I’m hoping Wet N Wild will see all of the reviews and change the formulation of the product.  It is $3 and had $1 off coupon at Walgreens so we can’t complain too much.  Have you tried this before?  What did you think?
