Hey all beauty geeks!!! I know all of us are crazy for orange shades and it is the new red/pink color of the season. However, almost everybody, including me, has tried safe orange colors. Like orange mixed with red or orange mixed with pink. This ensures that we wear the ‘in-color’ without looking ‘out’-of the place. 😉 So, I tried to step out of my comfort zone and challenge myself with a real shade of orange – pure bright orange!!! Wet N Wild Mega Last Lip Color in 24 Carrot Gold is a such color. Let me know do you like this shade of orange on me. 🙂

My take on Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in 24 Carrot Gold:
Wet N Wild Mega Last Lip Color in 24 Carrot Gold is certainly not your everyday color. It is a very shocking shade of bright orange/coral. I picked up this lipstick only because I wanted to wear a pure, unadulterated orange on my lips. 😉 The color is definitely a pretty color. But this lipstick requires little time and patience to look beautiful. Firstly, the lipstick has a slight shine to it, which is ok in most shades. But can spoil such bright and loud shades and make them look garish. 🙁 I blot the lipstick couple of times to reduce the shine and make it look matte.
However, once the shade is perfected, it looks stunning and is definitely an eye turner. I love the ‘expressions’ when people notice this shade on me. 😉 Will definitely need certain eye makeup to not wash you out.
Texture: Wet N Wild Mega Last Lip Color in 24 Carrot Gold has a smooth texture and applies comfortably on the lips. The lipstick has a slight glossy finish, which looks bad because of the bright shade. The lipstick also applies unevenly and you need to smoothen out the color to make it look even.
Pigmentation: As with all other lipsticks in this range, intensely pigmented.
Staying Power: Stays for an average of 4-5 hours.
Packaging: Wet N Wild Mega Last Lip Color in 24 Carrot Gold comes in a standard plastic tube with a black bottom and a clear cap. The shade and the name of the lipstick are indicated at the bottom. The color of the lipstick is visible through the clear cap.
What I like about Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in 24 Carrot Gold:
- Fun shade of orange.
- Brilliant pigmentation.
- Decent staying power.
- Very affordable.
- Can be made to look super neat.
- Different color that is not easily available in drugstore brands.
- Not very drying on the lips.
What I do not like about Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in 24 Carrot Gold:
- Glossy finish on a bright shade looks garish.
- Enhances fine lines on the lips.
- Applies blotchily and needs to be perfected a bit.
- Will not suit all skin tones.
- Cheap packaging.
- Unavailability in India.
Final Impression: Wet N Wild Mega Last Lip Color in 24 Carrot Gold is a different color of orange. Of course, you cannot wear it every day. But if you are looking at picking up a fun orange color, this is an affordable way to do. Though the application of this lipstick requires a little hard work, but I still love the lipstick for an amazing pop of color in the look. Very apt for summer and spring seasons. Recommended if you love such bright colors!!!
