Today, I am reviewing a shade from my Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color collection – Smokin Hot Pink. This color will suit almost all skin tones depending on the intensity with which it is being applied. I picked this up while on a shopping spree in US and found that W n W are having BOGO1/2. So, one was 1.99 and another ~.99. Well, I always love these deals on cosmetics in the US. In India, it’s very rare. I just wish, they start something like this so that I could hoard some more cosmetics. Let’s check out this shade.
Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color “Smoking Hot Pink” – $1.99 – $3.99 (Depends on the store you are buying it from and the offer available). They are made with hydrating skin care. “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 and E help smooth lips.”
My Experience with Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color – Smokin Hot Pink:
Now coming to the color, it looks hot pink on my lips. This color is for those who dare to wear bright color as the intensity of this color is achieved in just one coat. Texture wise, it doesn’t exactly live up to the claims, it’s on the drier side. You must apply a lip balm underneath to make it feel comfortable on your lips. This lasts for up to 3-4 hours with light snacks and leaves a beautiful stain on having a heavy meal. It fades uniformly which is a great plus point about the product. It does not bleed or cake and provides a very opaque coverage even on pigmented lips. The bullet of the lipstick is cylindrical with slight slanting on top. This is not an ideal shape for a lipstick, but I guess at the price that it is being sold, we should not expect much.
The major drawback of this lipstick range is the packaging. It is very flimsy and has a very cheap plastic feel. If you drop it once, major chances are that, the cap will be broken into pieces. The cap also comes off very easily; hence it is also not an ideal product to be carried in your purse while going on work or shopping etc, unless you keep it inside a lipstick case. Again the lipstick bullet doesn’t swivel completely; hence there are major chances of it getting smashed up while closing the cap.
Pros of Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color – Smokin Hot Pink:
- Ideal color for most of the Indian skin tones.
- Provides an opaque coverage.
- Bright color.
- Doesn’t settle into lip lines.
- Very affordable.
- Color fades uniformly.
- Leaves a stain which lasts for another 2/3 hours.
- Easily dupable (since it is not available in India, I am mentioning this under pros).
Cons of Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color – Smokin Hot Pink:
- Drying in texture, you would need a lip balm underneath.
- Shape of the bullet is not ideal for a lipstick.
- Packaging is flimsy.
- Availability in India.
