New Shades of Wet n Wild Megalast Lipsticks + Comparison

I spotted a big display of new Wet n Wild items at my local Walgreens the other day and decided to pick up a few things. The main items I wanted were the new Megalast lipsticks -- I love the formula on these so seeing new shades was exciting! They also reminded me of the Mac lipsticks that released with the Iris Apfel collection, so if you're on a budget, you may want to check these out!


Left to right: 967 Dollhouse Pink, 966 Don't Blink Pink, 970 Purty Persimmon and 965 Cherry Picking.

One thing I need to note about these is something I forgot to take a picture of: the number AND the name are now on the bottom of these! I really love that as trying to figure out what '905D' is was getting ridiculous.

I paid $1.99 each for these... and here are swatches (same order as above):




All four of the shades have fantastic pigmentation, even for them being nearly matte. What I love about these lipsticks is that they don't contain 80s frost or shimmer, but they aren't dry like many satins. They have a glossiness about them that is really flattering. The picture is one swipe down my arm, for reference.

I pulled out a few of my Mac lipsticks and another Wet n Wild lipstick I have to compare the colors so that you have a better idea of the shades:


On the left is Dollhouse Pink and on the right is Mac Viva Glam Gaga. Gaga is much paler. I would say Dollhouse Pink may be more akin to Snob or Pink Nouveau.


On the left is Don't Blink Pink, on the right is Megalast Lipstick in 905D (Smokin' Hot Pink) and on the bottom is Mac Impassioned. 905D isn't similar at all so let's ignore that one. Impassioned is in the same color family but is slightly more neon and red toned compared to Don't Blink Pink. If you weren't too concerned about having an exact dupe of Impassioned, this will do.


On the left is Purty Persimmon and on the right is Mac Morange. I'd say that these are pretty close... Morange is slightly less red toned, but you're talking a VERY minor difference. Again, if you're wanting Morange and on a budget, check out Purty Persimmon.

I didn't have any Mac lipsticks similar to Cherry Picking in my collection, but I would say that it's nearly identical to Girl About Town, if you're wondering.

Overall, really excited about these! I've only worn Cherry Picking and got about 4 hours of wear from it. You'll see some FOTDs with these for sure :).

  2. Ha! I KNEW I wasn't the only one who wanted to jump for joy when I realized the name was now included along with the number on the actual tube!!! If one thing frustrated me about wNw lippies, it was that. The only thing that sucks now is that I already have like 17 Silk Finish lipsticks and a good dozen of the MegaLast lippies in my stash, lol. I'm almost ready to give them away and start over.

  3. Morange is slightly more yellow/green toned.

    Under normal lighting conditions you won't notice a difference as the finish on both is very similar.

  4. Purty Persimmon looks fantastic, I'd love it, and probably wear it like everyday if I could! I really like the flattened applicator rather than the normal angled one!!

  6. Holy crap, Purty Persimmon looks INSANE! I hope they show up at stores in my area because I'm going to need that one. It's unfortunate that they felt it necessary to use "Purty" in the name, but such is life.

  7. These are pretty close to the Iris Apfel ones aren't they? WnW have been keeping their beadies open. I love Smokin Hot Pink but I think it's close to Candy Cane from Sleek? But the matte version of that colour? I think it's called Heartbreaker but don't quote me. I've been lemming Morange but looking at this I reckon my Lancome Orange is close enough. Might take it down to Selfridges MAC counter for a little compare.

    Anyway, long story short, all of these colours are gorgeous and I want them but obv can't have them so I'm just going to talk at you about lipstick for a million years. The end.

  20. Cherry picking is more like Revlon Cherries in the Snow.. It is nothing like Girl about Town, that Dupe is Revlon Colorburst lipstick in Fushia.. (I used to own all of those & when I purged I looked for colors that were similar & really they are dupes of one another swatched..

  21. I bought some of these today. I should have gotten Purty Perrisimon. I got 24 Carrot Gold. I will get it next time though and probably Pinkerbell.
