Drugstore Gem: Wet n Wild Megalast Lip Color Review

The Wet n’ Wild Megalast Lip Color bandwagon has started since forever. I really want to hit myself for waiting until today to join the rave, because h*ll, they are such a gem! Some of their shades are even hailed as a MAC lipstick dupe. So here I am, yet another person to say that they are absolutely right. I have here the shades Cherry Bomb and Mocha-licious. These two lipsticks also happen to be the perfect dupe for MAC Diva/Sin (Cherry Bomb) and MAC Verve (Mocha-licious). 
One of the strong points of Wet n’ Wild Megalast Lip Color is its unbelievably cheap price tag. One tube only cost Php299 / Php140+ on online shops. There may be some issues with its packaging being too messy (the lipstick gets on the lid every time you open/close it). That’s no big deal because for a gem like this, I don’t mind cleaning the lid every now and then. 
Cherry Bomb – is a dark blood red color. It is a perfect vampy lipstick – dark and intimidating.

Mocha-licious – I wasn’t quite sure of this before because I thought that it would look too nude for me. It turns out that it is actually a stunning warm mocha color - a very 90’s shade. 
I understand why many beauty enthusiasts love these lipsticks. It has a satin finish and one swipe is enough to give an intense color. It is so pigmented that people will believe that you’re wearing the expensive versions. There is no patchiness or skipping as it will glide on smoothly onto your lips with full on pigmentation. Surprisingly, it is not as drying as I thought it would be. I still recommend putting lip balm underneath, especially if you have dry lips like me. The lipstick will glide more smoothly that way too. Wet n' Wild Mega Last lipsticks stay for up to 5 hours, but only half of that if you are out for lunch or dinner. It'll leave a nice stain on the lips, though, so I'll give it that. But I'm not complaining, for its price, I don't think re-applying will be a problem.

Overall, Wet n' Wild Mega Last lipstick rocks! They have the perfect pigmentation, beautiful colors, and the performance of a luxury brand. I would really love to try the other shades too, and when I did, I'll make sure to give you a heads up and swatches.
