Hey all beauty geeks!!!Â You all know how much I love bright colored lipsticks. I am famous in my extended family for my ‘choice ‘ of lipstick colors. 😉 However, as of now I am a bit tanned and all bright colors look neon-ish on me. So, I thought of giving a chance to my sober lipsticks. This happens rarely and so I thought of reviewing these wearable and not over-the-top lip colors as well. I will start with my favorite of the lot – Wet N Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Rose Bud.

My take on Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in 904B Rose Bud:
Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Rose Bud is my go-to color when I am in doubt about what shade of lipstick to wear. It works well with my smokey eyes look or when I am supposed to look decent and not a makeup queen. (aka ‘in-laws’ family gatherings’) 😉 Rose Bud is a pinky rose color that is more dusky than vibrant.
Since I am tan as of now, it also looks a bit – coralish on me in less light. This is a medium rose pink color that will suit warm complexions without making them look washed out. All-in-all the color makes me look put together without everybody staring at my lip color. 🙂
Texture: The lipstick is a semi-matte leaning towards creamy texture. Feels very comfortable on the lips and does not further dry out lips.
Pigmentation: Opaque and intense in just one swipe. Pigmentation is the star in these lipsticks.
Staying Power: Stays for more than 4 hours and wears down leaving behind an even stain.
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a standard plastic tube with a clear cap and black bottom. The name and the shade of the lipstick are mentioned on the bottom. The bullet does not twist back completely and thus, you can see the color of the lipstick through the clear cap.
Smell: Has a faint smell to it, that vanishes in few seconds.
What I love about Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in 904B Rose Bud:
- Beautiful muted rose pink color.
- Everyday color.
- Awesome pigmentation.
- Swipes easily.
- Long staying power.
- Will suit medium and deep skin tones as well.
- Hydrating feel on the lips.
- No feathering/bleeding around lips.
- Semi-matte comfortable finish on the lips.
What I do not love about Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in 904B Rose Bud:
- Transfers easily, need to blot with a tissue while applying.
- May need to apply a lip balm underneath because of matte texture.
- The cap of the lipstick scratches the bullet while closing as the lip bullet does not twist back fully.
- Fragile packaging.
- Unavailability in India.
If you are fond of pink lipsticks (who is not ;-), try this out. The rose pink color makes it a unique color and easy to wear daily as well. Good for both conservative and festive places. Definitely Recommended!!!
