Wet N Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Vamp It Up, Red Velvet, Think Pink Review

(Vamp It Up, Red Velvet, Think Pink)

Mega Last Lip Color – $3, steal! – is a long-wearing lipstick with a matte finish*. But it isn’t matte. They LIE. It’s semi-matte.

The website claims:

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. (source)

Four-hour? A bit of a stretch. These last two to three hours on me. *While it says semi-matte on the website, in-stores it simply says “matte finish.” Color is incredibly opaque, and can go on a little bit cakey. Doesn’t feather or bleed, either. However, it is a little drying. I myself never seem to notice whether it “feels” dry or not until the next day when my lips may feel a bit tight. The packaging is cheap. Really cheap. The plastic part surrounding the lipstick refuses to stay in the tube. And that gets a little bit frustrating.

  • Think Pink – a light, pretty blue-based pink
  • Vamp It Up – a dark purple (Note: photo washes out color)
  • Red Velvet- a deep blue-based pink  (Note: photo washes out color)
