Lip Swatch! - Wet n Wild Megalast Matte Lipstick - Coral-ine 909D

I swatched out 13 more Wet n Wild Megalast Lipsticks here.   Today is 909D - Coral-ine!

This color is a red-orange.  When I think coral, I think a pinky-orange, rather than red-orange.  It is a pretty color, but I think you need to be very warm toned to pull it off.  I'm a neutral, and I think it's very close to not suiting me.  It looks more red in the photographs.  In the full lip application, you can see more of the orange.  This color is a lip-diminisher. Straight on, it looks fine, but just about any other angle made my lips look smaller.  I don't like that.  However, it is a pretty color, and I can see myself wearing this during the summer.  As the application wore off, I topped it with a sheer berry glittery lipgloss, and it looked really pretty.

First, bare lips.  I prepped them with a thin application of lip balm.  I am using Lip Smackers at the moment.

Now, a thin layer, applied from the tube, in a single swipe.  I'm sure you can tell, but yes, I left half of my lips bare for comparison.  I smoothed out the application with a lip brush.

Now for what I would call full strength.  I applied directly from the tube.  Keep in mind that this is a matte formula, but it does go on creamy.  If you put some lip balm on your lips before applying it, the formula will remain a satin finish.  If you apply the lipstick without any balm, the finish will look matte, but will feel satin on your lips.

Next is full lip.  I applied directly from the tube to the bare side, and I put on about 2 coats.  This lipstick is very opaque when applied directly from the tube.  I smoothed the outside edges with my lip brush.  My lips have been very dry since I misplaced my Lansinoh, so my lips look a bit weird.
Here is a full-face shot, to give you a better idea of how it works with skin tone.   The first one is in front of a widow, and the other is in regular indoor lighting.
