Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Color in Back to the Fuchsia (923A) / I can bare It (932A) - swatches

*Disclaimer - Product shown was purchased by passengerelement blog.  I am in no way affiliated with this company or am being paid for my review*

Most times, I do my homework on the items I want to purchase next.  It is rare for me to just pick up an item out of the blue...this is one of those times where I should have done my homework.

Wet n Wild Megalast Back to the Fuchsia 923A
Wet n Wild Megalast I can Bare It 932A
The Megalast Liquid Lip Colors were purchased at my local Rite-Aid for around $2.99 USD each.  Inside the tube is a two sided, flat applicator that does a decent job at spreading the product around.  In total, you get 0.23fl.oz/6.6ml of liquid lip cream.

WnW - top (i can bare it) bottom (back to the fuchsia)
Now let us get straight to the point.  The colors before I tried them are gorgeous...I mean a beautiful nude and vibrant fuchsia...I mean, do you need anything else in life?  I was so attracted to the "liquid lip color" aspect of these, as I have tried liquid lipsticks before and have been a huge fan.  These slipped on like a thick gloss, spread nicely and set.  Unfortunately, that is where the nightmare started.  The color I Can Bare It turned into a brown with yellow undertones that were not kind to my teeth.  In the tube, I Can Bare It had a microglimmer that was beautiful, but on the skin, looked more matte.  Back To The Fuchsia is an extremely vibrant, almost neon fuchsia that looks like a cream in the tube, and is definitely a cream on the lips.

Both formulas blended the same, had the same amount of glide before dry down.  I have tried both of these liquid lip colors in two ways: full on brushing of the cream onto the lips, and also using them as a "stain" with a very tiny amount blended with my finger.  When I used this full on, this is the most opaque liquid color ever on the lips!  It is as if you are brushing liquid patent leather onto your lips!!!!! Once this method as "set" the thick feeling does not disappear.  It accentuated the lines on my lips and stayed "locked" into this look.  Also, once set, I could not rub my lips together without a strong tugging.  It is a dry feeling, but once rubbed, the lips become tacky and start to get patchy.

Using this as a stain, I was able to get more comfortable wear, but not by much.  This actually does nicely as a stain if you are looking for a truly long wearing lip product.  Regardless of what method I used, this was a pain to take off.  I used an oil cleanser and makeup wipe to get the job done.  These left my lips dried out, and though I take good care of my lips with regular exfoliation and moisture, this drew any moisture I had in them out.

Top Swatch  - Back to the Fuchsia (direct sunlight/flash)
Bottom Swatch - I can Bare It (direct sunlight/flash)

Top Swatch - Back to the Fuchsia (overcast/flash)
Bottom Swatch - I can Bare It (overcast/flash)

For those that like a very long lasting lip product, this may work for you.  Those with sensitive lips or that are prone to dryness might stay away.  Glad I got to try them as I am a huge fan or Wet n Wild, unfortunately...these did not work for me.

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser

*Disclaimer - Product shown was purchased by passengerelement blog. I am in no way affiliated with this company or am being paid for my review*

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser

I have a love/hate relationship with most primers.  I also have an addiction to purchasing them.  Today, we will be checking out Maybelline's Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser...

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser was purchased at my local Walgreen's for $6.99 USD.  The product comes in a screw bottom, softer plastic, squeeze tube.  Contained in the tube is 20ml/.67fl.oz of product.  The primer comes in clear.

Baby Soft Instant Pore Eraser
Baby Skin  - back of packaging
Baby Skin is an addition to the Baby Lips line Maybelline has come out with.  What Maybelline claims is that it has "instablur technology" that lessens the appearance of pores.  It also mattifies the skin.  Baby Skin can be used either under makeup or on a bare face.

Maybelline Baby Skin - unblended product

Maybelline Baby Skin - blended product
My experience with this product is as follows...

It mattifies instantly! It made my skin feel velvety soft!  It slightly blurred my smaller skin imperfections!  But that beautiful effect is short lived on me as I am of combo-oily skin.  On areas where I tend to be more oily, it just made my makeup slide off and not long lasting.  I also found that it on my skin, that velvet feel felt "wet" throughout the day...It just never seems to feel set on my skin.

Now, that is my experience and your mileage may vary.  I have passed this on to other friends who have drier skin and they have had better experiences with this product.  If you are oily skinned, you may want to steer clear of this...those with normal or dry skin may still want to check this out!

CoverGirl Tru Magic Skin Perfecter

*Disclaimer - Product shown was purchased by passengerelement blog.  I am in no way affiliated with this company or am being paid for my review*

CoverGirl Tru Magic Skin Perfecter

What we have for you today is CoverGirl's Tru Magic Skin Perfecter balm.  I purchased this at Meijer for around $10.00 USD.  The balm is contained in a very sturdy, and very bulky plastic compact.  You get 7.7g/.27oz of product inside.  The perfecter is from a balm range from CoverGirl that featured a gold luminizer balm, as well as a bronzer.  All three are packaged the same way and are the same price.

CoverGirl Tru Magic Skin Perfecter - pkg details

What Tru Magic Skin Perfecter does is mattify the skin without adding anymore tint or powder.  I know what you may be thinking..."its a clear balm and it mattifies?"  The feel of this product is a balm version of those primers with silicon that make your face feel velvety soft when you blend them in.  The packaging states that this will not clog pores, will control shine and that it is non-greasy.  This is a good way to get rid of those greasies without adding to cakiness.

I am still in the process of trying this out as I am testing it on not only bare skin, but also with liquid, powder, mousse and airbrush foundations at the moment.

Has anyone else picked this up?  What do you guys think?
