Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Cherry Picking/Stoplight Red (swatches)

I am a sucker for bright lips. I am a sucker for red lips. I am a sucker for magenta/fuchsia lips. It is getting to be a problem for my wallet. What has not been are these awesome finds from the ultra affordable Wet n Wild line...

Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color

T: 965 Cherry Picking / B: 911D Stoplight Red
These little tubes of awesome can be found most retailers for between $2-$3 USD.  For that price you get 0.11oz/3.3g worth of product.  The bullet comes enclosed in a black, twist up casing with clear plastic cover.  Nothing special really, though I do like that for a drugstore product the case closes nice and tight. As far as these two colors, I have noticed no difference in the formula between both colors.  The finish to this lipstick is an extremely creamy, semi-matte lipstick.  This does have a bit of slip, so first couple hours of wear are nice and comfortable.

I will start with Cherry Picking.  Now, when I swatched/wore this, it is an extremely vivid magenta with red/blue hints that leans more red.  When I have looked at other swatches of this online, I have seen it look like a dull rose, head on primary red, and melon pink.

Up next we have 911D in Stoplight Red...

And now for this lovely red.  Stoplight Red is a blue based red that is creamy and semi-matte.  I love the very retro quality of this red.

Overall, great wear on this formula.  Even when I primer with a good lip balm, these dry out my lips.  After a few hours of wear, they get dry and somewhat crumbly.  I like to apply a good waxy balm over them to extend the the wear to ultimate comfort.  They had a nice variety of colors from these bright, lively ones, to nudes and neutrals.  I have not had any trouble finding these anywhere.

Do yourself a favor and purchase a few of these...they are lovely, and who can beat that price! :)

See you later :)
