Tried Tuesday: Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Colour

tt-WnW-thIt’s like the search for the holy grail, well for lips anyway. All I want is a lipstick with great colour, that stays put through eating, drinking, and, eh, other activities, and that doesn’t destroy my lips in the process. Is that too much to ask? I think not. Maybe I’ll have luck with this Megalast Liquid Lip Colour by Wet n Wild.


The colour we’re looking at here is Raisin’ the Roof. It looks like a deep pink/berry in the tube, and according to Wet n Wild last up to 8 hours and are completely transfer proof, while moisturising at the same time. This is due to Elastisilk technology that combines flexible colour and silky pigments that move with the lips.


The applicator is nice without being anything particularly special, holding a fair amount of product without being overloaded and goes nicely on to the lips, though in the case of Raisin’ the Roof, it does apply quite purple. I wasn’t quite expecting it to be so dark, looking at the tube, but it is still a nice, rich colour, which would probably be better suited to autumn lips.

When removing it I had to have a bit of a go at it, and it didn’t wipe away. It kind of peeled away in bits. It also seemed to show up every single line on my lips. I’m not entirely sure if it is just my lips, or this showing everything up, so I will have to investigate further. I probably won’t be trying with this colour though, not for a few months. There are some nice coral and pink shades available too (13 in total) so I might just pick up a more summery shade to try again.

For now though the jury is out. I can’t say as it stands that this is everything I’ve been looking for. The colour payoff is amazing, and it doesn’t budge once it sticks on there, but I’m not entirely sure about not drying out my lips. I’ll have to try a couple more times and see.

Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Colour is €4.69, and is available from Dunnes Stores, some Penneys and pharmacies nationwide.

  • Wow it seems along the lines of the bourjois velvet rouge. Be rude not to buy it!

    • I don’t have any of the Bourjois ones to compare (at the moment), but I want to try out the Bourjois ones too. Typical blogger, I want to try all the things.

  • What a fab colour pity about the finish. I have to chime in and say I also live the Bourjois Shine Edition lipsticks. Quite similar looking, but a fab finish.

    Mind you lasting power is pretty average!

    • That’s why I’m wanting to try another one, just to see if it is something about this particular one. They’re not overly expensive anyway.

      I’ll have to try the Bourjois ones now :-)

Go on, talk to me. I don't bite!
