Wet N’ Wild MegaLast and MegaShield Lip Colors

Hi ladies!

Just want to share my ‘budding’ collection of Wet N Wild Lipsticks. Lol. I’ve been wanting to buy these lippies for some time now and finally I got my hands on them! They are so inexpensive that I want to collect a lot of them all in different shades. I fell in love the wide array of colors you can choose from plus the pigmentation. I obsessively kept using my Wet N’ Wild lipsticks ever since I got them. I have two MegaLast and one Megashield Lip Color. All of the lipsticks are incredibly pigmented especially the MegaLast ones. Also they are all creamy and glides on smoothly when applied, still I never skip putting on lip balm just to avoid chap lips.

Roro’s thoughts:

The MegaLast Lip Colors are my favorite. The lipsticks are encased in a black plastic tube with a transparent cap that has the name of the product stamped on it. The shade and number is both indicated at the bottom of the tube. The packaging is actually nice, I just hope the durability is strong enough to withstand my abuse and clumsiness 🙂

The colors are bright and vibrant plus they are available in so many different shades. The product is quite creamy and has a matte finish. The only bad thing about the creamy consistency is that it tends to smear on the container or the cap making the tube messy. The lasting power is quite decent, doesn’t actually lasts for 4 hours, which I don’t mind at all. Has mild odor though nothing too disturbing.

Purty Persimmon would appear as a reddish shade but it has an orange undertone (like the persimmon, lol).  I like how fresh and bright I look using this lipstick alone and with natural look or less makeup. This shade is great to wear for a night out and the color actually appears brighter (kind of like mild neon) in real life than in pictures. I like to wear this as a pop of color when I go all black with my clothes or as a substitute for red lippies. The 24 Carrot Gold may look like the same color as Purty Persimmon on the lip swatches above but it’s actually a more tone-down/ subtle shade than the latter. This shade has a coral tinge (not too bright) plus the color does remind me of carrots 😀 I find this great to wear both day and night. I love both shades. Can’t wait to try the others!

And the MegaShield Lip Color SPF15:

MEGA SHIELD™ LIP COLOR SPF 15
Color, comfort, and care! Luxurious color delivers hours of sheer-to-moderate coverage that glides on buttery-soft for a smooth, moist-looking pout. Lips are pampered with Vitamin E, Amino Acids, Avocado Oil, and Rice Bran Oil that moisturize and condition for silky, soft comfort. And with SPF 15, lips are cared for and protected from harmful UVB rays.

Ingredients:
Active Ingredients: Octinoxate (7.5%), Oxybenzone (2%)
Inactive Ingredients: Ozokerite, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Octyldodecanol, Bis Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate 2, Neopentyl Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Tridecyl Stearate, Propylheptyl Caprylate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, VP/Hexadecene Copolymer, Microcrystalline Wax, Polysilicone 6, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Germ Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Alumina, Stearic Acid, May Contain (+/-):, Carmine (CI 75470), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Mica, Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Red 28 Lake (CI 45410), Red 30 Lake (CI 73360), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Yellow 6 Lake (CI 15985), Zinc Oxide (CI 77497)

Roro’s thoughts:
The MegaShield Lip Color has SPF15 which I absolutely like. It is contained in a black plastic tube with ridges at the side and a transparent cap that has the name of the product. Like the MegaLast Lip Colors both shade and number can be seen at the bottom of the tube. Durability of the packaging is also decent like the MegaLast ones.

It also has a creamy consistency and yet again an ugly part of the lipstick because it easily smudges. Also had mild scent to it but not too strong. The lasting power is least impressive than the MegaLast Lip Colors. I discovered that after 3 hours the lipstick faded although faint traces of it can be seen.

I only have the shade It’s A Girl and I pretty much like it. It is a lovely baby pink shade. This color is something you can wear day or night and can be use everyday. I find myself wearing this often during the day because of the SPF and the color makes my skin appear quite vibrant. This is definitely a go-to lipstick for me.

Verdict:

MegaLast Lip Color

Haul: San San Cosmetics

IMG_2963

I’ve recently dropped by at one of my favourite cosmetics store, HBC (Hortaleza Beauty Center) to buy a few items. I’ve always been a frequent customer at HBC and already recognized by the employees there. I kept coming back to their store because they do sell great quality make-up products and offer various items from bath essentials to hair and skin care. Plus, the prices are so affordable. Another thing great about this cosmetics company is that not only is it available locally (Philippines) but it can also be found in few countries like in the US and can also shop their products online. If you want to know more about HBC, visit their official website or Facebook page.

Nichido Girls Night Out: Eye Contour and Gorgeous Eye Pencil

Nichido is a makeup brand I’ve discovered by fault. I got unquestionably lured by the wide array of products, the sleek looks, striking colors and its affordable prices (less than P100/ $1 and up). I’m not sure where the brand originated or have any idea about their company profile but one of the products has ‘Made in Czech’ indicated on its label (maybe that’s where it came from). I did google the brand to find their official website, but alas, I didn’t find one except a Facebook page which wasn’t of any help at all.

I’ve been using their products for years now without knowing the story of Nichido and sometimes it bothers me since I’ve been applying their products on my face. That’s how conscious I am.  What about you? Are you like that too? LoL

Anyway, I was totally in love with Nichido’s eye pencils. What caught my eye was the variety of colors it has: bronze, light pink, blue, violet, etc.

And I have three of them: Blackest Black, Pink Diamond and Bronze Glow (most fave).

I’ve been reading great reviews about the ELF Eyelid Primer for a couple of months now. So decided to get one myself since its easily available in ou local SM mall for P129.75 ( $1). It was my first time to actually use an eyelid primer and I was aware how it’s essential in making the color of your eyeshadow appear more vibrant, helps avoid creasing and to have it last for many hours.  Thus, here’s my first impression.
