Wet n Wild Megashield is a new hybrid lipstick slash lip balm product with an SPF 15. I’m kinda loving all these new balms and lip butters lately so I was eager to try this as hey, the price is a mere $2.99.
Take a look!
Props for creating a lipstick with SPF 15 in the mix of things Wet n Wild as that definitely gains you a few points but formula wise I think you missed the ship on these.
These come in a lightweight plastic tube which is somewhat uneventful and flimsy. I normally chalk up Wet n Wild’s packaging as easy to store, bland, and pretty basic but not entirely bad however these look and feel a tad cheap. Sorry, hate to be negative but that’s the deal here but hey, keeping packaging costs down allows for more $$ to be spent on the formula right?
Not a great formula either.
This is a pretty basic lip color (swatched below Ring Around the Rosy) with a good deal of pigment but a rather uncomfortable feel on lips. They have an easy glide and a soft feel but they sit on lips a bit unnaturally particularly if your lips are dry or chapped. I noticed the longer the color stayed on the drier my lips got until the color stayed caking a bit and started to look rather gross. Needless to say after an hour in I had to wipe it off because it just looked bad.
The worst offense here?
The lipstick doesn’t swivel completely down. Oh my god way to get on my nerves. I dislike having to worry about taking a chunk our of my lipstick when I put the cap back down and this is basically the issue here as the lipstick doesn’t swivel completely down. Such a thoughtless packaging fail.
Overall, Wet n Wild Megashield Lip Color are merely 3 bucks so I guess you can’t rant too much at this price but the fact remains that it isn’t a great product packaging and formula wise I’m not exactly excited either. If you desire a full coverage lipstick with a decent formula and an SPF 15 they might be appealing but personally, I’d skip it. It is what it is, cheap lipstick. Use the $3 for something else.
