Is Mother upset that Wet n Wild Mega Last High-Shine Lip Color ($2.99) evokes the spirit of her LuxeTrance Lipstick? One does wonder! Notice that little lip accent on the tube? Feels very Pat Mcgrath doesn’t it? I thought so!
Wet n Wild Mega Last High-Shine Lip Color is a fairly new lipstick that launched a few months ago along with Mega Last Matte Lip Color (with the black packaging this looks even more Pat Mcgrath) in 14 shades each. I was intrigued by the High-Shine formula as you know me I’m all about shiny lipsticks and feel like the world needs more of ’em! And at $2.99 each these were an tempting little pick up.
Here’s my review and thoughts!
Wet n Wild Mega Last High-Shine Lip Color is fantastic. The price, the formula, the shine, and color all get big raves from me but the packaging blows. But let’s get into the good before we deal with the bad.
I picked up a single shade in this formula just to try out and if it wasn’t for the packaging I’d probably grab more. The shade I got was Jam with Me which is a deep reddish brown perfect for Fall looks. I love this formula! It’s light, every so slightly balmy, thin, and it glides on perfectly with a nice, smooth finish that’s super shiny and incredibly pigmented. It’s also fragrance and flavor-free. I loved how easily it applied and how it felt lightly moisturizing on my dry lips. The shine factor was definitely a nice perk as sometimes these shiny lipsticks promise shiny but deliver very little. Wet n Wild Mega Last High-Shine Lip Color had a very nice shiny finish! The color wears for around four hours without feathering or migrating on my lips.
Sadly, the packaging is a big nope. Visually it’s very cute! It’s a white barrel that has a lip shape clasp on the front. It’s plastic and very lightweight and flimsy but still cute. It obviously comes across as a Pat Mcgrath-like packaging which you either think is a flattering copy or an awful copycat. I didn’t mind the copycat nature of it and thought it was a cute packaging.
However, I did dislike the factor that it is faulty packaging. The lipstick doesn’t completely swivel down which droves me bonkers as you can easily take a chunk off when replacing the cap. Secondly, be careful how much pressure you using during application. My first application I completely ruined it as I applied but it ended up tilting to the side and breaking at the base. I had to push it down a little and pop it into the freezer to reset it which didn’t quite work out as it’s still all messy and deformed. Not sure if this was an isolated issue but if all the shades are like this thanks but I’ll skip!
The packaging is fault but the lipstick formula wins here! Wet n Wild Mega Last High-Shine Lip Color comes in with great pigment, a comfortable wear, moisture, and plenty of shine! Too bad about the packaging because this is a great little budget pick. Even with the faulty packaging I still gave it a very generous 4 out of 5 stars.
Wet n Wild Mega Last High-Shine Lip Color is 0.11 oz and will set you back $1.99-$2.99 depending where you purchase it. It’s available in 14 shades selections and has a pigmented formula that feels light, thin, and slightly balmy with no fragrance or flavor and a shiny finish. I thought the formula wore very comfortably for me for at least four hours without fading, feathering, or migrating.
Wet n Wild Mega Last High-Shine Lip Color is a fantastic pick for shiny lipstick lovers if you can get past the faulty packaging!
