Lips take center stage! This 4-hour, longwearing lip color leaves a semi-matte, crème finish in one stroke. Glides on easily with rich, velvety color that doesn’t cake, feather, or bleed. Made with hydrating skin-care ingredients: Hyaluronic Microspheres provide extraordinary adhesion to lips, an exclusive polymer complex offers cushion-like feel and texture, and natural marine plant extracts Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamins A & E help smooth lips.
Wet n Wild’s Mega Last Lip Color lipsticks come in 26 shades and are said to be long-wearing and hydrating.
This lipstick comes in a standard plastic tube that twists at the bottom to reveal the product. The packaging feels a bit cheap. The name of the color is also not on the lipstick, which aggravates one of my biggest pet-peeves. Only the color number–910D–is displayed.
Red Velvet 910D is a crimson red with pink undertones. The color leaves a semi-matte finish to the lips.
Despite the company’s claims, this lipstick has almost no creaminess to it. The tube itself is stiff and dry. It doesn’t actually dry out the lips, but isn’t hydrating either.
When I applied the lipstick for the first time, the color didn’t even transfer. I had to swipe several times to get beyond the surface layer before any color showed up on the lips.
Once the color does start transferring, it still skips on application.
The color itself is very vibrant and pigmented, giving an opaque finish. The red does stain the lips slightly.
Wet n Wild claims this color lasts for 4 hours, which is a fairly modest claim. It’s a breath of fresh air that the company isn’t making outlandish claims of 12- or 24-hour wear. And this lipstick lives up to the 4-hour claim.
Ease of Use: 7.5/10
This lipstick isn’t very pleasant to apply because the formula is stiff, causing the color to skip over the skin. The lack of creaminess also makes it difficult to get a smooth line at the edge of the lips.
You can’t really ask for a better price when it comes to a lipstick.
