Wet n Wild Megalast Lipsticks - New Shades + Giveaway!

Wet n Wild has fast become one of my favourite brands since it launched in Ireland last year. Their products are great quality, and so affordable. My favourite product of theirs has always been the Megalast Lipsticks (anyone remember how I hunted down Sugar Plum Fairy?), so when they launched new shades, I knew I'd be heading into Pennys to pick up a few.

A few weeks later, I was sent some to review, but as it turns out there were only two shades in five I was sent that I did not already buy myself, so I will be holding a little giveaway and you can win five of these fabulous lipsticks!

Wet n Wild promises that these will last up to 4 hours, and the Megalast Lipsticks really do live up to this claim. I also don't find them drying at all, which is always a risk with matte lipsticks.

From Left to Right: Dollhouse Pink, Pinkerbell, Cherry Picking, Purty Persimmon

Dollhouse Pink: This was one of the two shades I didn't already own. In terms of the shade, I personally am not a huge fan of this one. I feel it really washes me out. This would look great on those with fair skin though! The formula is great, it applies nice and smooth, but it does show dryness if you have any dry patches on your lips.

Pinkerbell: The other shade I didn't already have. I'd heard ages ago that this was a dupe for Mac's Nicki Minaj lipstick, which is the main reason I stayed away. I have that one too, and can confirm it's a dead on dupe, the only difference is the finish (this is matte, Mac's is satin). Neither the Mac version nor this really suit my skin tone, which is really sad because it's such a beautiful colour! I do think it would suit other skin tones well though. This one doesn't have the nicest application, it's quite uneven and I find that when you try apply it in one area, it moves it from another, leaving empty patches.

Cherry Picking - This one is a really beautiful pinkish-red. Now, this is one of my favourites - the colour is stunning, suits my skin tone, the application is amazing, and it's completely opaque in one swipe. I absolutely love it!

Purty Persimmon - This is another favourite of mine! It applies beautifully, is super opaque in one swipe and best of all, it suits my skin tone! It reminds me a little bit of Mac's Morange, but a more redish version. Which is perfect for me because Morange was just too orange for me, making me look ill. Purty Persimmon gets the balance of red and orange perfect for me.

From Left to Right: Sand Storm, Mochalicious, Ravin' Raisin, Vamp It Up

Sand Storm - This one's a lovely brownish nude shade. Again, it applies really well, and I think this would be a great shade for Autumn. I've actually been wearing this one a lot recently.

Mochalicious - This one to me is a true 90's brown. I'm on the fence about the colour, some days I love it and then some days I think it's just too brown for me. Also, this one has a funny smell, kind of like oatmeal or porridge. I don't know it this is only true to my one, which I got in America a few months ago, or if the ones you get here also have that scent. Anyone get this lipstick here and notice this? Or is it just me?

Raivin' Raisin - A gorgeous dark purple, it reminds me of Sugar Plum Fairy in the tube but it's actually very different when applied. RR is straight up purple, while SPF has some pink tones in it. They're both stunning shades either way!

Vamp It Up - This is definitely not for the faint hearted! It's a very very dark purple, borderline black. It's a little bit uneven, but not nearly as much as Pinkerbell. Application can get a bit messy, so you do have to be very careful when putting this on. Vamp It Up is said to be a dupe for Mac's Cyber, so if you were thinking of getting that, you might want to try this one instead!

The Wet n Wild Megalast Lipsticks are available in Penneys and Dunnes Stores, for €2.99 each.

Now, onto the giveaway! The five shades you can win are Purty Persimmon, Sand Storm, Mocalicious, Ravin' Raisin and Vamp It Up. The giveaway is open until July 27th 2015 to those in Ireland and the UK only.
