Lipstick of the Day: Wet N Wild MegaLast in Purty Persimmon

Hi lipstick junkies!!!

Here’s another Wet N’ Wild MegaLast lipstick. I really can’t get enough of them. I plan to get more of these of different shades of nude, peach and plum. They’re seriously great and very pigmented. One thing i don’t like is these lipsticks make your lips dry. I use my Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm before applying the lipstick and it works great.

I’m wearing the shade Purty Persimmon. I already did an in-depth review of this on my previous post Wet N’ Wild MegaLast and MegaShield Lip Colors. Please check that out if you would like to know more about this lipstick.

Verdict:

What I like

  • durable packaging
  • has 26 shades to choose from
  • has a scent but quite faint
  • decent lasting power
  • super inexpensive
  • Purty Persimmon is a gorgeous shade of red with a tinge of orange
  • creamy and matte (don’t forget to exfoliate your lips or apply lip balm)
  • available anywhere or online

The bad

  • due to the creamy consistency, can be REALLY messy and easily transferable

Roro’s Thoughts:
Of course, I like it. Great shade but I only get to wear it a few times because I prefer the Wet N Wild MegaLast in 24 Carrot Gold. I would definitely love to try other colors.

A 5 /5 lips for me 😀

LOTD: Subtle Smokey

Hello darlings!

Recently, I have been experimenting on eye shadows: how to apply, blend and match different colors. So far, I’m still bad at it. LOL. But I’m extremely having fun practicing various techniques, playing around with colors and what I mostly could do is a soft smokey eyes.

IMG_4430c

I used L’Oreal Paris Color Infallible Eye Shadow in the shade Forever Pink  as a base all over my eye lids. I love this L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow because it is very pigmented and gives a satiny finish when applied on the lids. Plus it lasts all for hours which is great for me since I have an oily/combination skin and would cause my eye shadow to crease. Then for the smokey effect, I simply blended a matte warm brown eye shadow at the outer corner of my eyes to the crease creating a V-shape.

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.

32

First off are the MegaLast Lip Color line:

MEGA LAST® LIP COLOR
Lips take center stage! This 4-hour, longwearing lip color leaves a semi-matte, crème finish in one stroke. Glides on easily with rich, velvety color that doesn’t cake, feather, or bleed. Made with hydrating skin-care ingredients: Hyaluronic Microspheres provide extraordinary adhesion to lips, an exclusive polymer complex offers cushion-like feel and texture, and natural marine plant extracts Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamins A & E help smooth lips.

Ingredients:
Ozokerite, Pentaerythrityl Tetrastearate, Propytheptyl Caprylate, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Mineral Oil, Myristyl Lactate, Bis Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate 2, VP/Elcosene Copolymer, Myristate, Dimethicone Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Neopentyl Glycol, Diethylhexanoate, Polysilicone 6, Cholesteryl Hydroxystearate, BHT, Propylparaben, Ethylene/Propylene/Styrene Copolymer, Silica, Butylene/Ethylene/Styrene Copolymer, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Allantoin (Comfrey Root), Retinyl Palmitate, Squalane, Ubiquinone, Sodium Hyaluronate, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides ( CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Red 6 (CI 15850), Red 28 (CI 45410), Red 30 (CI 73360), Yellow 6 (CL 15985), Blue 1 Lake (CI 42090), Yellow 5 (CI 11680)

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

Beauty Haul

Hi Ladies!!

Wow, I’ve been gone for two weeks! And I totally broke my rule to at least publish blog post/s every week. Well, something came up so I had to deal with it and I admit, I got a little distracted. But now I’m back, HELLO BLOGOSPHERE, I missed YOU! 😀

I have a huge haul to share to you today ladies! I bought some local products and a lot of goodies from my mom.

What I mostly got were sachets/free samples from different beauty and cosmetic brands. I got serums, foundations, skin care products, scent and perfumes, lipsticks, hair products and facial masks. If you had used or is currently using any of these products, please let me know what you think about them!

1La Roche-Posay, Biotherm, Lise Water, Prevage, VICHY, Elizabeth Arden, Giorgio Armani, Anabelle Cosmetics, Cliniderm, NeoStrata, L’oreal, Wet n’ Wild, Diamonds Collection, HBC San San, Aido 

a

I’m so excited to try them all!

I also got a new perfume, Diamonds Collection: Jessica Eau de Parfum, a version of Jennifer Aniston.
4

I guess this was a Jennifer Aniston Perfume for Women-inspired scent where the design house created a different version of the original one. This was way cheaper than the Jennifer Aniston Perfume for Women. I really can’t describe the scent but I assure you it smells so feminine and ladylike. The name of the perfume, Jessica, totally suits the scent. Not my favorite though, I still prefer my Estee Lauder  or Bath & Body Works than this.

I could say that the highlight of this haul for me was the Wet n’ Wild Lipsticks.

b

I was so overjoyed when I saw the lippies. Finally! I have my first Wet n’ Wild lipsticks! I can’t even describe you my excitement once I had my hands on these babies. I always wanted to buy one but they’re actually quite hard to acquire especially here in my hometown. Buying it online was the easiest way to have them but I have a love/hate relationship with online shopping. I became cautious and hesitant in buying things online except from few trusted sites which services are guaranteed.

1Just look how crazy pigmented and bright they are! Can’t wait to try them out 😛

Big thanks to my mom! She’s the best 😀

I also bought few makeup products from local brands.

7aI’ve read a lot of great Pinay reviews regarding the San San Single Eyeshadow and the very affordable price was enough to lure me into buying them. 8a

I was impressed, albeit the affordability and look how pigmented they are! I think there are about 20 different shades available. I’ll go buy them all, soon 🙂

I also got a L’oreal Paris Color Infallible Eye Shadow in Forever Pink which is a very beautiful, pigmented, iridescent pink. It is a bit too shimmery for me, nevertheless, I’m so excited to try this one especially that it claims the color would last for 24hrs, so that is a must-try and experiment. It is also available in other gorgeous shades that everyone should dare try. c

That’s about it! Now, it is time for me to get updated on what’s going on the blogosphere, answer some emails, read comments and bunch of blogs I missed since my AWOL. That plus a cup of coffee = a very relaxing way to spend time 🙂 Massive thanks to those who had time to roam around my blog and for giving me some love! Be safe and stay fabulous always!

kisses,
