ohh la la lips - twin edition

Hello!

Today I coerced a fellow bold lip lover to do a dual review of Wet n' Wild's Purty Persimmon with me!  So you can read my thoughts and Christine's over at Little Red Bow.  So you don't have to take just my word for it that red is wonderful!



This color is from their MegaLast collection which they describe as "This 4-hour, long wearing lip color leaves a semi-matte, crème finish in one stroke. Glides on easily with rich, velvety color that doesn't cake, feather, or bleed. Made with hydrating skin-care ingredients: Hyaluronic Microspheres provide extraordinary adhesion to lips, an exclusive polymer complex offers cushion-like feel and texture, and natural marine plant extracts Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamins A & E help smooth lips. "

I usually have a hard time finding these in the stores, and at $1.99 I'm not surprised they sell out. You can usually find the full collection at Beauty.com. There are a couple of draw backs- it is not a creamy as some lipsticks and requires a more careful application.  It also leaves behind a bit of a stain (which I don't mind, but some might).   

I would agree that it is a semi-matte finish after the initial glossiness wears down.  It's not a true red color but more of an orange red, so warm skin tones would wear this really well.


So here are my oh la la lips in Purty Persimmon:



And a side view because I was feeling sassy!



So have you tried Wet n"Wild Mega Last and what do you think?

  1. This looks so much more glossy on you! And I have to disgaree with you, you wear it better :) Thanks again for picking this out for me. When I wore it to work yesterday I got tonnes of compliments.

  2. wow you totally rock this color. I can't get these lipsticks to work on me and I guess I'm a bit turned off by the texture.

    1. Thanks! The texture is weird, it's a bit dry and doesn't glide as well as I would like. But the price and the staying power sucks me in :)

  4. Thanks for doing the duo review with me - it was fun! I'm not sure why it looks so glossy (my forehead also looks really oily) It got semi-matte after about 1/2 an hour. I'm glad you liked it!
