Orange lipstick you say? Try Wet n Wild Megalast lipstick in 24 Carrot Gold - Review, swatches & photos

I just can't get enough of Wet n Wild Megalast lipsticks since I bought Sugar Plum Fairy and Just Peachy. I was overwhelmed by it's quality for such a cheap price! Good thing I was able to get them from The Primp Pad for a really great deal! *winks*:D Anyway, one reader asks if I already tried Wet n Wild Megalast lipstick in Pinkerbell or some "orange shade" from the Megalast line. I already know what Pinkerbell looks like because I was supposed to get it together with Sugar Plum Fairy (it's a pretty pink color which a lot says a very good dupe for MAC Viva Glam Nicki).

I am so curious about wearing an orange lipstick when MAC released their Hayley collection which consists of an orange colored lippie a.k.a. Sounds Like Noise. I was really hesitant to get it because first, I know I will not wear it often enough and 2nd, I'm not sure if I'll look good or funny wearing it. haha. So I looked over at Google if Wet n Wild has an orange lipstick and boom! 24 Carrot Gold showed up. As usual, I can't resist the temptation so I texted The Primp Pad if they still have one (glad that they still have one!) and I ordered it together with Pinkerbell (will do a separate post for it).


Here it is:

 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
24 Carrot Gold has a creamy semi-matte formula in a medium orange shade. You'll easily get an opaque color with just 2 swipes on your lips. It is pigmented like Just Peachy and lasts quite long on my lip (of course, without eating or else, I'll have to re-apply). I really went out of my boundary with this color but I must say, I'm glad I did! It wasn't as scary as you may think (scared that some might think you've got spaghetti sauce on your mouth kind of thing haha). It's a pretty color though and for me, very wearable and I'm thankful it's not as in "orange fruit" orange color because I will be able to use it and not feel awkward. :D
 
 
 
 
 
Lip swatch:
It settled into the lines on my lips because I didn't moisturized it with lipbalm prior applying. Yeah, I was that excited to use it. lolz. Please don't do what I did. :)
 
 
 
 
 
And here's my selfie shots wearing 
Wet n Wild Megalast lipstick in 24 Carrot Gold.
 
 
 
Pros:
Affordable at Php148.00 only at The Primp Pad.
Creamy, opaque and very pigmented.
Lasts for quite a long time w/o eating of course.
Not drying and did not feathered out.
I did not get any allergic reactions (like lip flaking and itchiness)
 
 
 
 
Cons:
THE PACKAGING feels realy cheap. (hey, what do you expect^_^)
Not available here in our local counters.
 
 
 
I think, I satisfied my curiosity already about orange lipsticks and if it will be wearable or look alright with me (I hope I didn't looked awful haha).
 
 
 
 
 
 
How about you? Have you tried an wearing an orange lipstick?

You look great!

24 Carrot Gold looks very orange on me, not a color I normally wear but I love it! Can't be spending $$$ for something I'd wear just occasionally
