Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in Sugar Plum Fairy Review

Okay guys, here's the thing. I have found what I think may just be my all time favourite lipstick. Ever. I mentioned this lipstick in another post a few weeks ago, but it just kind of deserves a post of its own.

This is a lipstick that I searched for in 5 different shops, on what was supposed to be a lazy Sunday afternoon. I started off in the Pennys in Dundrum. Couldn't find it. From there, I took the Luas into town and popped into Dunnes in the St Stephen's Green Shopping Centre. Still no luck. After that, I moved onto O'Connell Street and had a look in the Pennys there. Nope. I moved onto Henry Street and had a look in both the Dunnes and Pennys there. I. Still. Couldn't. Find. It.

I tried again a few days later. Still no luck. I had given up, and bought Mac's Rebel instead, for which this lippie was supposedly an exact dupe.

That weekend, while I was walking towards my bus stop, I decided to have another look in Dunnes and low and behold, they had it! They had three actually, so I snatched up two, one for myself and one for my sister.

This is how I came to acquire Wet n Wild's Sugar Plum Fairy.

Sugar Plum Fairy is an exact dupe of Mac's Rebel, the only difference being the finish (Rebel has a satin finish while SPF is a matte). Personally, I actually like Wet n Wild's offering a lot more, despite my drier lips. Sugar Plum Fairy is lasts a whole lot longer than Rebel, probably because of its matte finish. I popped SPF on my at 7am, it stilled looked great by 4pm (although it had faded just a little bit by this point), despite me having consumed two meals by then.

I've had both of these lipsticks for about a month now I think, and I've used Rebel only once. Sugar Plum Fairy, on the other hand, I use at the very least once every week. For only €2.99, it is an absolute bargain and there is no excuse for you to not get it (unless you can't find it that is!).


  1. Fab dupe and you went to a lot of trouble to make sure it was yours I'm def gonna try get my hands on this x

    1. It was worth it in the end! You definitely need this one, too beautiful not to have!

  2. Whoah you went on a treasure trail to find sugar plum fairy! I really like the wet n wild offerings I just wish there was a stand near me! x

    1. I admit, I did become kind of obsessed with finding it! Have you a Pennys near you? They have stands in all their stores I think. Some Dunnes Stores stock them too!
