Peach is love! ♥ Wet 'n Wild Megalast lipstick in Just Peachy - Review, pictures and swatches

This shade has been on my list for the longest time. I'm a MAC lipstick gal, but hey, who doesn't want cheap but good finds right? (uhurm, that's me!) Wet 'n Wild is a super affordable cosmetic brand where you can get it for only $3 or like a dollar only for a lipstick when they're on sale! (well, in US-yes, but here..nah..how I wish). So, as I mentioned, Just Peachy and Sugar Plum Fairy (a very good dupe for MAC Rebel!) are on my wish list and why it belonged there is because our local counters here in Manila doesn't really re-stock these shades often.

I remember when I went to the mall last month to check if they are available, but the SA said they are yet to re-stock in 2 weeks or so- AND when I went back last week, yeah- they still has no stock for almost all of the lipsticks! *boo* (their counter looked like an abandoned makeup stand, and I'm not exaggerating here). Good thing there's The Primp Pad who sells a variety of US cosmetics in super affordable prices!♥ I'm really glad that I discovered this online store, and I think that they have the lowest price for Wet 'n Wild lipsticks so far, and the seller is so nice too! :) Such a hassle-free transaction♥


Okay, I'm gonna be reviewing Just Peachy first and will do a separate post for Sugar Plum Fairy:)

 
 
 



Wet 'n Wild Just Peachy is a coral-peach-nude lipstick. A pure peach with no pink or beige undertone, which I'm actually looking for. Perfect for everyday or girl-next-door look or if you're the type who prefers to wear a nice peach lippie. I have another peach-nude-beige lipstick but it's from MAC and they have different under tone. (see my review of MAC Cherish here).

I love the fact that Just Peachy is so pigmented and glides on opaquely. I experienced some lip tugging here, but it's a minor issue. (just use a lip balm to condition your lips prior to applying this, or any lipstick). It's completely matte but it isn't drying (surprise surprise!) and lasts for quite a long time on my lips which is a plus for a drugstore brand. It's surprisingly very vivid in just 2 swipes! I find it more flattering on me compared to MAC Cherish because of its subtle and pure peach color and I think it will suit girls with light-medium skin tones too. :) The only downside of this lipstick is the packaging. (who the heck designed it anyway?haha) The lipstick's head is exposed even you twisted it all the way down already and it has a tendency to break while applying because of the lipstick's soft texture (what will you expect for its price right? Just be careful) Good thing it already has a name of the color on the label instead of just numbers!  Well, aside from that, I have no other complaint. :D I love this lipstick and I feel that I made a great choice in choosing this color together with Sugar Plum Fairy.♥


Below is what I'm talking about: the texture.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
                                                                              Pros:
Very vivid color and pigmented.
Lasts for quite a long time. (about 3 hrs before fading)
Has a pure peach color that I love.
Super affordable, only Php 148.00 when bought at The Primp Pad.
Matte formula but did not dried out my lips. :)
Did not feather during hours of wear.
Fades evenly.
Has no weird scent at all.
It did not cause any allergic reaction on my lips. (severe flaking, itchiness)
 
 
 
Cons:
The packaging. It could be more sturdier.
The soft texture that tends to melt when exposed in a humid or hot area.
Always OUT OF STOCK at local Wet n Wild counters here in Manila
Overpriced here at Php 299.00 a tube!
 
 
 
 
All in all, I'm very happy with this lipstick. There's so many pros than cons to consider and, as far as I'm concerned, it's a good buy! The shade is so pretty and nice sans the fact that the lipstick tends to melt or break while in use, but the heck, it's okay with me. With its super affordable price, it won't hurt if I get another a new tube if I break one :)) *wink*
 
 
 
 
 
How about you? Have you tried Wet 'n wild's Megalast lipsticks?

hi clarise! thanks for following sis ♥ I think morenas can wear this color too, if you think it washes you out, try to work it by dabbing a darker lipliner muna :)
