Lip Swatch! - Wet n Wild Megalast Matte Lipstick - 969 - 24 Carrot Gold

I swatched out 13 more Wet n Wild Megalast Lipsticks here.   Today is 969 - 24 Carrot Gold!

The "Carrot" part is right; this is an ultra-bright orange.  This color would suit someone with a much darker complexion than I, or would work well as a fashion statement color.  Otherwise, I find it to be un-wearable.  It is very far from my natural lip color, and unfortunately, it creased on my lips, emphasizing the unnatural shade.

First, bare lips.  I prepped them with a thin application of Lansinoh.

Now, a thin layer, applied with a lip brush.  I left half of my lips bare for comparison.

Now for what I would call full strength (two layers).  I applied with a lip brush.  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.  This color does intensify with a second coat.

Next is full lip.  I applied with a lip brush, and I put on about 2 coats. 

Full Face, it is much, much brighter in person:
While you're here, please leave a comment about what you think of the new lip swatch perspectives.  Do you like it better when you can see more of the face and get an idea of what the color looks like more?  Or, do you prefer the old way, with the zoomed-in photo?


  1. Thank you for your feedback!!!!! :-)

  2. I think this lip color looks incredibly lovely on you!! I just purchased the color today, after having looked for it for a couple years (finally found it in a drugstore in my home town!) :-)
