You know how it goes. You’re bored and maybe you have a few bucks burning a hole in your pocket so you say “I’ll buy that lip product I saw so and so talking about.” You get lucky and there it is, beauty at a bargain in your drugstore. So you go home eager to test it out only to find out it wasn’t what you wanted or hoped for. This was me with Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Color.
Intense liquid color with built-in moisturizer provides one-step application for weightless, ultra-conditioning wear that lasts up to 8 hours. ElastiSilkâ�¢ 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.(wnwbeauty.com)
Of all the claims about this product the one that held true for me is that it’s transfer proof. I kissed the back of my hand, I drank wine directly from the bottle(don’t judge me), and I kissed my kids goodnight. It didn’t move. However, there’s a trade-off to that long lasting lip color.
Your best bet is to use one coat of product on your lips. I’m talking one side of the wand for your bottom lip and the other side for your top lip. Any more and you risk that smooth application turning into a flake-like mess. Once dry you have to deal with a stickiness and tightness on your lips. The tightness, while not unusual for a long-lasting lip products, is something I don’t care for all that much.
For the price this product has its place. This doesn’t feel like an everyday kind of thing unless you’re looking for a way to not reapply lip products throughout the day. If not save it for a wedding or other event where you might be short on opportunities to reapply. Just make sure you have some type of oil to take it off. No tissue or makeup wipe will do anything to this once it’s on. You’ve been warned.
