Wet'n'Wild MegaLast Liquid Lipstick in Back to the Fuchsia

wetnwild megalast liquid lipstick back to the fuchsia review
I showed the Wet'n'Wild MegaLast Liquid Lipstick in Back to the Fuchsia ($1.99) on my Instagram a while back and promised to have a review on it. I want to (slowly and steadily) review all of the liquid lipsticks in my collection and then do a roundup/comparison posts of all the formulas. Same with my cream blushes. It's quite a project but something I really want to do.

Now here's the thing about this liquid lipstick.... I think it's one of those love it or hate it ones. It's the longest wearing lipstick I've ever ever tried. And I thought the Stila All Day Liquid Lipsticks were long wearing but they have nothing on the Wet'n'Wild's. The pigmentation is great and their longevity is amazing, but there can be too much of a good thing. These are so hard to remove! You have to literally scrape, rub, scrub, and wet your lips even after hours of wear. Don't even ask how hard it was to remove the arm swatch. Not only that, but they set in such a rigid way that your lip creases become very accentuated. The Wet'n'Wild formula feels to me like old-school liquid lipsticks such as the L'Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lipcolor. Those included a glossy balm to put on top because of how harshly they dried. So if you're used to the flexible comfortable wear of new liquid lipsticks such as the Hourglass Opaque Rouges, NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, etc., know that you won't get it with this.

Overall: Much drier, harsher, and tighter than most liquid lipsticks in the market. The lasting power is amazing, but these are really hard to remove. They accentuate lip creases but it's something that can't be seen from afar. I would pick every other liquid lipstick in my collection over this any day, even if these wear longer. However, if you want the longevity and retro matte finish of liquid lipstick but don't want to spend a lot, do give these a try.

  2. Wow these sound very stubborn indeed, this sure is a nice colour on you though. I think I'd prefer to try the Stila version, at least I'd be able to get it off of an evening.

  3. Oh wow that colour is beautiful! It suits you really well. Sounds like a good value lip product for the price. I found when I used the Sleek matte me, I had it on for like 5 minutes but not even bioderma would remove it! It was insane! x

    1. Same with this! The swatch was on for a minute and I had to scrub and scrub and scrub!

  4. I have this one too! I was drawn in the by the amazing shade name and the cheery fuchsia colour (it really is a lovely shade), but I agree- the formula is quite dry and unpleasant!

  5. This is a beautiful hot pink. I'm definitely a fan of pinks like this but I can't take the drying stain at all! It looks great on you and I'm glad to hear that it lasted forever!

  8. I'm looking forward to your liquid lipsticks comparison post. I'm a fan of these hybrid type lip products. This product seems good in theory with such great lasting power, but I dread accentuating lip lines and the like. x

  9. Thank you for this review. I trust your blog, and this just helped me make up my mind about this product. Definitely buying it due to the staying power! Thank you! :*

  10. I really love the color but the finish is a little weird but the longevity is great for weddings and events that require a lot of drinking and eating!

  11. I've got it in red, and I must say it's a "hate" for me unfortunately. It's very drying and very unforgiving. Unless you've got an incredibly steady hand, it can be quite nightmarish to work with, because as you said, there is removing that stuff once it's there!

    1. I agree and the wand applicator is a bit flat, it isn't my fave x

  12. After reading your review, I'm just sorry you eventually had to go through the process of trying to remove it again D: yikes!

  14. This is SUCH a beautiful color! I really want to check these out but I'm not sure if they're a harsher formula like you say. I might pick out one to try it!

  15. Sounds like a dimly lit lounge, sipping on some drinks, ain't got time to worry about reapplying type lip product. _Terese

  16. I have been on a hunt for something like this for ages and none of them seem to look like they are moisturising! I hate that :(! I love the look of the colour though xx

  18. Despite all the warnings, I'm intrigued and think I may just had to try one of these puppies out for myself...even if it does suck my lips dry.

  22. Love the shade! Sucks to hear that it's dry and hard to remove. I think I might still try it to see how it compares to the Sephora Cream Lip Stain. Great review.
