Hello everyone! This weeks lipstick was Wet’n’Wild Mega Last Lipstick in Sandstorm. This is the first shade in my series that I have actually disliked on my lips and struggled to make work :c When swatched it looks like a gorgeous browny-nude shade and in theory a fantastic shade for me. But in reality it just looked very blah. Anyways here are the deats:
Price: $2.75/£1.78 - these lipsticks are absolute bargains!
Colour: It is a medium brown mixed with a slight hint of orange and peach. The colour of the bullet and swatches on the hand are very different to how it looks on my lips. I think its a really good 90s nude for light skintones and it works as a normal browny nude for slightly deeper skintones (like Barcelona). I’ve now passed it over to my mum, who likes the shade so it’s not all doom and gloom!
Formula and Lasting time: Despite it being from the matte wet’n’wild range, I would say this doesn’t really dry matte, its more of a satin finish. As it didn’t dry down to a matte finish it lasted around 3.5 hours before I needed to touch up. It faded pretty evenly so all good there. I also found it easy to apply from the bullet, though a bit more of a point would have been useful for more precision.
Favourite Way To Wear It: erm..I don’t have one. Honestly guys the only way I liked wearing this was on dabbed on top of the nude lipsticks, and then a bit of a darker lipstick and THEN dabbed over again..NOPE. I couldn’t make this work and it made me so sad because when swatched and even looking at the online swatches it was so promising! I mean bottom line is it was cheaper than chips so not a biggie that it didn’t work out, but hey!
Overall: I had high hopes for this lipstick (I mean just look at that swatch! I looks so pretty!) and when I really try I can kind of make it work, but lets be honest, this is not my perfect 90s brown lip! I am ‘stromboli’ in NARS and sadly this shade did nothing for me. It kind of looked muddy against my skintone and the only way I could sort of make it work was mixing it with a couple of other lipsticks which is really too much effort for me personally. Sure if I had found ONE lipstick that made this look amazing I would be content, but I don’t have time to be mixing several lippies together ._. All is not lost though because it does suit my mum, its a great browny nude on her, so at least it won’t be wasted. Also the packaging on these ALWAYS get messy, there is no way it won't require cleaning up now and again. Not a biggie for the price, I mean come on they're such a bargain...but its worth putting out there.
Available from: I bought mine from Beauty Joint and they have a FANTASTIC range of drugstore products!
Repurchase? Nope. They have a couple in their line that I will be repurchasing, but not this guy!
Have you tried any of the Wet’n’Wild Mega Last Matte Lippies? Any favourites?
