Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Color | Review, Photos, Swatches

Wet-n-Wild-Megalast-Liquid-Lip-Color-FI

The new Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Color are certainly eye-catching, and so I decided to pick up several to try out.  Just from the tube, they look incredibly pigmented, vibrant and very promising.  Read on for more photos and a full review.

The names of these lip colors are so cute!  L to R: 920A Coral Me Bad, 921A Red My Mind, 922A Cherry On Top, 923A Back to the Fuchsia, 924A Click on My Hyperpink, 925A Do I Make You Blush, 926A Pink Perfection, 927A Iris I Was Rich, 932A I Can Bare It   

They contain a good mix of cream and frosty/glittery shades.

Intense swatches! L to R:

Wet n Wild describes the new Megalast Liquid Lip Color as: “Intense liquid color with built-in moisturizer provides one-step application for weightless, ultra-conditioning wear that lasts up to 8 hours. ElastiSilk™ formula combines flexible color adhesion with silky-smooth pigments for transfer-proof, even application. Paraben-free formula conditions and moisturizes with vitamin E that helps promote anti-aging, protects the skin’s moisture barrier, and balances the lip’s natural hydration for a healthy-looking, plump pout all day.”   The full collection consists of a few more colors (I believe there are 14 in all, and I have 9 to show for you today.)

Pigmentation.  The lip colors are definitely intensely pigmented and contain a good mix of creams, frosty shades, as well as some glitter. The shades are magnificent, especially when swatched on the arm!  Wet n Wild did a fabulous job choosing the color range for this line.

Application.  They have doe-foot applicators which makes it easy to apply it to the lips.  The color goes on smoothly and creamy and feels very hydrating – at first.  Within about five minutes the product began to feel like they were “setting up” on my lips.  They became dried and tacky feeling and no longer smooth.  As the time wore on, the color began to crack and flake away, however, it was odd that what was left on my lips was definitely not going anywhere!  My attempts to rub my lips together to redistribute the product were in vain, because at that point the gloss had settled to feeling like a waxy coating on my lips.  In fact, it was extremely hard to remove the gloss from my lips and I had to literally scrub my lips with a makeup wipe to get the remaining gloss to come off. Below is one lip swatch I did to show you the beginning phase of cracking.  I did not lip swatch the entire collection, to avoid having to scrub off each shade.

Within five minutes of application, the gloss went from feeling smooth and hydrating, to dry and cracking.  It began to peel off beginning at the inner part of the lips, and continued the longer I wore it. The shade is gorgeous, however! (925A Do I Make You Blush?)

This is a shot of my attempts at scrubbing the lip color off of my arm (this was a lot of scrubbing!)  It definitely has quite a bit of staying power!

The packaging is so bright & beautiful!

 Overall I did not find the Megalast Liquid Lip Color to be hydrating at all to my lips, and although the packaging and pigmentation is right on, the formula seems to be off.  Considering the price point of this product, one may argue that for a $3.00 lip product it isn’t really much to complain about (and technically there were $1 off coupons on each gloss so I paid a mere $2 each!), but coming from the perspective that I have been wowed by many high quality Wet n Wild products with such a low price tag, this one took me off guard.

Krystal from Beauty By Krystal had offered the suggestion to wear these lip colors on top of a lipstick, so I wore my L’Oreal Color Caresse lipstick in Sheer Linen underneath to see if that would create a barrier, but unfortunately that did not help.  Thank you for the suggestion, Krystal!  Perhaps another lipstick or balm would help these these so I could continue experimenting, but I have determined this product does not work well my lips.  I would be very curious if you have picked up any of these lip colors and if you have found a way to make them work for you?

Note: Thank you to a reader to noted that I was referring to these as “glosses” when they are actually liquid lip colors that are supposed to set, as I described in the review.  I will be experimenting with other ways to make these work, but using them directly on my lips has not been “weightless, ultra-conditioning or long lasting” as Wet n Wild describes them to be.

  1. Darn, I was really hoping they would seal a lipstick, so disappointing that they pill off like that and feel so horrible. Annnd, I’m glad I waited to read your review, because I was this close | | to buying them all {whew}

    Great post girl! oxo

    • Angie says:

      I was so hopeful as well! I was so surprised at the quality of this product to tell you the truth. I just wonder who out there can get them to actually work, lol! Well I am glad I posted the review, especially since you were going to get them all – big whew! :)
      Thanks again for the great suggestion! It was brilliant and something I think we could all use in other instances so I just had to share! :)

      Have a great day girly!

    I was so unhappy with these too! They felt like super glue on my lips and not moisturizing at all. My lips are on the dryer side so I thought that was the problem but even when I applied chapstick, I just didn’t like it. ahhhhhh

    • Angie says:

      Oh haha! Super glue! That is totally a great description of them! I seriously can still remember what it felt like when it was like on my lips now, and how hard it was to get off of my lips as well O.O. I hope you did not purchase too many as I did – yikes! :)

    I have been dying to comment on a review for this lip color. The reviews I’ve read have all been negative but it really is because people do not know how to use the product!
    Ok, i know that sounds crazy, but s true. I had similar product from mac so i was familiar with what this product it. Tower this product is simple… apply your favorite clear lip gloss on top. You will feel 100% differently about this product. The one i he from mac came with a clear gloss(double sided) i suggest wet n wild does the same. Trust me just de clear lip gloss this is an amazing product!

    SSorry for all the typepos the autocorrect on this smart phone is ridiculous

  5. Paulcarroll40 says:

    They aren’t glosses. They’re liquid lipcolors. They set, as you said before–which is what they’re supposed to do. XD Anyone expecting these to act like a gloss is going to be disappointed, obviously.

    • VanityRouge says:

      Thank you for the clarification.  I will remove any reference to these being “glosses”, however, at this time I stand by my overall review of this product, because Wet n Wild describes them: “built-in moisturizer provides one-step application for weightless, ultra-conditioning wear that lasts up to 8 hours” and I found them to perform the opposite.  I would love any tips you have for making these work because the colors are gorgeous!  I love Wet n Wild products and think they have are amazing quality especially for the price. :)  I have yet to try them with a clear gloss on top to see if I can get them to work with my lips, but I am open to any suggestions and I can update my post if it changes the results I observed.  Thanks!

    I bought this product at target for 2.99 and at first it seemed great. When applying the lip color it feels smooth and the color looks awesome but after a few minutes my lips started to feel sticky and eventually the lip color started cracking.. I really wish there was a way to prevent the cracking because their colors are so awesome!!

    • Angie says:

      That is exactly my experience, so I totally understand! I know for some they work, so that is nice! It is so sad that they do not work for me because they are so intense and the colors are divine!

  7. MODINECARPENTER says:

    YEARS AGO I LOVED THE COLOR 506 BEEN LOOKING FOREVER FOR THAT LILAC COLOR DOES ANYONE KNOW A COLOR LIKE THE 506A THANKS CANT UNDERSTAND WHY IT WAS TAKEN OFF THERE WAS ALWAYS ONLY A FEW LEFT OR ALL GONE WHEN I WENT TO BUY IT THANKS AGAIN

  8. Lisa says:

    I see what you’re saying about the dryness completely. But the color is so good! Today is the second day I’ve tried my liquid lip color, but it a little bit if a hassle. I used my typical Chapstick then lipstick (anothe wet n wild), layered the liquid lip color on top (gorgeous!!), then added a little gloss on top. Takes longer than normal, but you get the color, and its not so drying.

  9. Christina says:

    Mhh.. they’re not supposed to be “moisturizing” or “hydrating”, they’re LIP STAINS and are designed to last a long long time… they may look like a gloss or even feel like it when first applied but that is obviously NOT the case… you should watch this:

    to LEARN the proper way to use these and maybe you’ll get a different opinion.

    • Thank you for the information! I know this product won’t work for everyone, but I appreciate you sharing this. :) I also have not experienced this product “staining” my lips – it just stays on top and once it is removed there is no stain left behind, but maybe you experience something different. In my opinion they are more of a longwearing lip product, much like Hourglass and Make Up For Ever make, but this one doesn’t seem to work with my lips anyway. The reason I mentioned it is not “moisturizing” or “hydrating” is that Wet n Wild says (quoted from their website): “Intense liquid color with built-in moisturizer provides one-step application for weightless, ultra-conditioning wear that lasts up to 8 hours. ElastiSilk™ formula combines flexible color adhesion with silky-smooth pigments for transfer-proof, even application. Paraben-free formula conditions and moisturizes with vitamin E that helps promote anti-aging, protects the skin’s moisture barrier, and balances the lip’s natural hydration for a healthy-looking, plump pout all day.” My review simply pointed out that I do not find these moisturizing and of course that is just what I experienced. Again, I’m glad you love them and that you are a fan! :)
      Thanks for stopping by!
