Review! Wet N Wild Megalast Lipstick Review and Swatches - 13 Colors!

My first review of Wet N Wild Megalast lipsticks, which swatched out 11 shades, has been hugely popular.  I love these lipsticks, and hauled in a bunch more colors!  So, without further ado, here are 13 more colors!


The Wet n Wild website has this to say about their Megalast Lipsticks:
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.










 How do they look out of the tube (clockwise in the above pictures, starting with the bottom left)?


These lipsticks range from 99 cents to about $3, depending on where you buy it.  

Megalast lipsticks are full-coverage and long lasting.  These lipsticks will completely conceal your natural lip color, so you won’t need a lip concealer to achieve the color in the tube.  What you see is what color your lips are going to be.  There is no shimmer or sparkle in this line.  They are matte, but I didn’t experience any drying of my lips.  The formula doesn’t dry to a flaky sheet on the lip, so you can keep on rubbing your lips together throughout the day, and it won’t destroy the application.  

This formula feels like a cream, although it gives that matte look.  If you want a shine to it, top it with some lip balm or lip gloss.  The color will still stick around for quite some time.

Prior to applying on the lip, though, make sure you wipe off a thin layer from the lipstick in the tube.  That top layer on the tube DOES dry to a flaky almost-sheet thingie, and you need to get that off before you put it on your lips.  I wipe it with a lint-free tissue first, then I rub it with my finger until it warms up, and if any little clumps are on there, I wipe it off again with the tissue.  Once you wipe off that layer from the tube, you will notice that the lipstick now looks more like a cream than a matte.  If it doesn’t look creamy, take of some more from the tube.  Once it looks more like a cream, go ahead and apply it.  You can use a brush or go straight from the tube.  You can also lightly pat your lips with the tube and it will give you a much more sheer look.   

Be warned that these colors stain.  If you are trying out one of the darker colors for the first time, maybe try it out on a night you are planning to stay home.  Let me put it this way, when I did the color swatches on my arm, I first used a wet cloth to wipe at it… and my arm is still very pink, red, and purple.  Observe:
Even after some warm water and soap, my arm is still pink.

Pros:
CHEAP!!!
These lipsticks are known to be dupes for many high-end brand colors.
Full Coverage
Long Lasting
Non-drying
Excellent Availability

Cons:
Stigma attached to the brand can be hard to get over.
You have to prep the color in the tube before every application.
Sometimes the tube falls apart, check yours in the store before buying by turning it upside down to see if the lipstick falls to the end of the cap.
The lipstick does not fully retract into the tube, so you might want to be careful putting the cap back on so you don't nick the lipstick with the cap.
