Wet n Wild Lipstick Swatches

I got a lovely package from Wendy last week with some gorgeous Wet n Wild lipsticks in. I love WnW lipsticks and would love it if they came to the UK!


Mega Shield Lip Colour in “Within These Adobe Walls.”

Unf! Is this a gorgeous spring colour or what? I love it. Can some PLEASE explain the name to me? I know adobe is a type of clay… but I don’t get it. And it’s not even a clay colour!

Mega Shield Lip Colour in “Salsa Lessons.”

And isn’t this a perfect summer colour? This one is coming with me on my holidays! I love the formula of both of these – they go on balmy and dry down a little, lasting 3-4 hours which I think is pretty good. The formula has SPF 15 which is better than a kick up the arse and I’m in love with them both.


MegaLast Lipstick in “Purty Persimmon.”

MAC “So Chaud.”

*fans self*  This is everything I want in an orange/orange-red lipstick. Yesyesyes. It’s not bang on with MAC So “Chaud,” which is a little darker and more opaque, so I won’t call dupe but if you’re looking for an awesome matte orange-red and don’t live near a MAC or want to pay the dollah for it, this is a great alternative. Do you live in America and not own this? Yes? LEAVE THE HOUSE NOW. RUN. RUN AND FETCH THIS. Seriously.

Megalast Lipstick in “24 Carrot Gold.”

To me this looks a little like a lighter, less in-your-face alternative to MAC Morange which even I as am orange lover am terrified of – hence why I don’t have it to compare, it’s just what gets called to mind when I look at it. This is much less yellow than I thought from seeing swatches online and I was so pleased because I love the MegaLast formula, and I love oranges.


Thanks SO much Wendy for all the pretties!


  1. The first shade s lovely...I don't really get the name either, though! I remember we had a WnW stand in our nearest Boots for about 2 weeks years ago...but it vanished :/

  2. I love 24 Carrot Gold. Wendy got it for me too. :D My drugstore never has any of the good WnW shades, but Wendy hooks me up a lot. She' awesome, but you know that.

  3. HAhaha oh my. I feel like you are quite impressed by this collection, no? Thanks for the pics, they all look great on you!

  4. These are all pretty! I really like Wet n Wild's lipsticks, they have nice shades and you cannot beat the price! I love "Within These Adobe Walls," I may have to hunt it down. Wish I could give you some insight into the name... I always wonder if there's an insight joke I am not privy to when I see shade names like that.

  5. Living in Southern California, there are a slew of mid-80s, "southwestern style" buildings in just that color (usually accented with seafoam green or beige. Terribly stylish, as I'm sure you can imagine.). Must be a regional thing, because I didn't even blink at the name!

    Love the swatches . . . I'm wearing Purty Persimmon now actually! And I have been hunting for 24 Carrot Gold without much success so far . . . might have to eBay that one.

  6. How do you get the MegaLast colors to apply so nicely? Maybe I just have crappy lips, but I always feel like they look sort of cakey and thick on me.

    1. I can't help you! I just slap 'em on. Some feel drier than others though I guess, these ones in particular were pretty nice.

  7. Love the Adobe color. I interpret the name to be a darker color too.

  8. these lipsticks are just simply awesome. i love them. i purchased red velvet today and before that I got 24 Carrot Gold. these are reasonably priced and of good quality. one can collect them all.
