Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Color: How to make them work.

I Bought This

So there has been a lot of negative buzz about the Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Color, mostly that they are drying and settle into lines. I also found that to be the case when I tried them out. Even if I applied lip balm first they still seemed to be drying and unflattering, but I really wanted to find a way to make them work since they are such pretty shades!

Cherry On Top
The applicator is a flat two sided paddle which picks up A LOT of product. I mean, this thing was almost dripping with lip colour and deposited a HUGE amount of product when I swatched them.

You can see that they are matte and look super pigmented, but they also look very dry and almost cracking. On my lips they looked even worse! You can see how dry and flaky looking Do I Make You Blush? was here:

Super dry and disgusting looking!!! But is it possible to make it work?

So I thought, maybe it's just TOO much product and the thick layer is what is making it look so bad. I decided to apply lip balm and then when I applied the Liquid Lip Color, scraped off the excess product onto the side of the tube opening, so only a VERY little amount was left on the applicator. I rubbed it on lightly and was left with a MUCH better result.

Cherry On Top
The beautiful colour still comes through, but it looks SO much nicer! My favourite is Cherry On Top, it's such a beautiful, rich satin red. Click My HyperPink was still a little chalky for me, but it'd probably work better on a lighter skintone. I couldn't believe the difference in how it looked on. Let me show you again how horrible it was in comparison:


The ONLY difference is how much product I applied. The top pic is straight out of the tube and the bottom pic is after scraping the excess off. I am pretty happy with how I managed to make them look good and they still had good pigmentation, lasting power and a satiny matte finish. It's not really that much work, since you just have to wear lip balm and scrape off the excess before you apply, but I know some people do prefer something they can easily slap on and go. Are you going to try the Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Colors, or do you prefer something you don't have to work with?

The Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Colors retail for $2.99 and can be found at Walgreens and CVS among other major drugstores.


  1. I like the cherry on top, I do like the " do I make you blush" but idk with my skin color

  2. I think they'd both look nice on you :)

  3. i love how you made this work for you! I couldn't throw away a product even if it was bad because i'd feel awful for the waste, so i always try any kind of work around for those products. However, if I already knew a product didn't work I think I would like to buy something else to see if there's another product that would work better. Thanks for the review!

  4. I really like Do I Make You Blush! I love how affordable wet and wild is too!

  5. For $2.99, I'm not complaining!

  6. I know what you mean, I'd probably rather buy the Megalast lipstick which I know has a great formula.

  7. I really wanted the product to work but no matter how little or much I applied, it still kept flaking off and getting onto my teeth :( It's a real shame since I loved the matte color and good liquid lipsticks are so hard to come by.

  9. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post
    seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something
    to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought
    I'd post to let you know. The design and style look great though!
    Hope you get the problem solved soon. Many thanks
