I haven’t done a shop my stash piece in a while, and someone on my instagram suggested that I post swatches of all my Megalast Lipstick collection! I loved the idea, so here I am today.
Honestly, if you follow me anywhere it’s no secret that I love this lipstick formula. It’s the one that I suggest to everyone that’s wanting to explore lipstick for the first time or wants to try vampy shades or reds.
Why? They don’t break the bank. These are $1.99 at most drugstores, and they go on sale often at places like CVS and Walgreens. I find these BOGO 50% off very often! A few years ago, I was laid off from my job and I was not in the best financial situation. These lipsticks became a bit of a treat for me. I would wait for a coupon and stack it with a sale and get these for free or close to free.
So, this particular line of lipsticks has a bit of nostalgic value to me as well. A reminder that even when you’re low, a little bit of pretty lipstick can brighten your day. Well, it did for me.
Anyway, there’s not too much that I can say about these lipsticks that hasn’t been said a million times! They’re very pigmented, semi matte yet still hydrating, and they last a long time on the lips! I will always love these…and I have 17 of them.
Swatches from wrist down: Spiked with Rum, Mauve Outta Here, Cherry Pickin, Think Pink
Wrist down: Spotlight Red, Celeb Sighting (LE), Red Velvet, Purty Persimmon
Wrist down: Cinnamon Spice, Nightcap (LE), Bare it All, Mocha-licious
Wrist down: Vamp it up, Coffee Buzz (LE), Vintage Vibe (LE), Photobomb (LE), Bitten Bourdeaux
Out of all 17 I own, Mochalicious, Bare it all, Cinnamon Spice, and Spiked with Rum are the ones from the permanent collection that I highly recommend. These are all very trendy shades for anyone too nervous to try vampy shades or on a budget.
However, I have an undying love for this latest set of Limited Edition shades. I’ll link my post about them at the end, but they’re honestly the best ones they’ve come out with yet, in my opinion.
My only gripe with these are the packaging. I always get product on the lid, no matter how careful I am not to. It’s also pretty flimsy and can bust easily if not handled carefully. These are also $2 lipsticks, so what really matters is the product. I personally don’t buy these for the aesthetics, they are just incredible lipsticks.
I do wish Wet n Wild would make all the lipsticks matte black like their limited edition collection. The matte black looks a bit less cheap. Once again, that’s strictly an opinion.
If you’re in the market for an awesome cruelty free drugstore lipstick, please look into these. If you already have some, which ones do you own and love? I would love to hear about it! Chances are, I will end up owning all of these eventually.
Also, what all would you want to see next from my collection? Milani Lipsticks or an updated Nyx round case or high voltage lipstick post? Let me know!
As always, thanks for reading if you made it this far, and I hope you all are having wonderful days!
