Lippies (Wet n Wild adventures part 2)

Lippies (Wet n Wild adventures part  2)

These lippies tell the truth!

Nothing can liven up your mood like a great lippie! And one at a great price will keep up that mood for a month! As you well know if you’re following my Wet ‘n Wild adventures, I also found some great lipsticks at Clicks!


First up is the Wet n Wild Mega last lipsticks

These lipsticks claim to be a 4-hour, longwearing lip color. Finally! A lipstick that doesn’t claim to last 24 hours on your lips ! Respect Wet n Wild, respect!

It does last that long, maybe a little longer actually . . .



I got the shades: Bare It All: a medium pink-toned brown nude with warm undertones. This is a complete dupe for MAC’s Kinda Sexy, right down to the texture! ( And I kind of like it better)

Coral-line: a reddish coral shade.

Both these colours are universally flattering in my opinion because neither is overwhelming. I usually get one dark and one light colour to test out before I buy the lot!


The colour payoff  is extreme It great for pigmented lips and the semi matte formula looks dead on. It’s more forgiving than other matte lipsticks it doesn’t over-emphasize lines. Usually matte formulas pull on the lips when applying them. But these velvety lippies glide on like a dream and certainly feel more comfortable on the lips. I also tried wearing it without a lip liner and it didn’t feather or bleed, another of the claims that it lives up to.



Wet n Wild claims that these lipsticks are 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.

This explains the formula and staying power!

My one gripe is the packaging. It plastic but the bottom on the tube is a sturdier plastic. The cover is flimsy and see-through. However the worst thing is that the lippies don’t turn all the way down so you can easily nick and graze it if you’re not careful.

Price: R43, 99


Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick in Pink Nouveau


When I saw this shade I immediately thought of MAC’s Girl About Town.

Pink Nouveau is a blue-based bubblegum pink color that will suit ALL skin tones. It has a creamy finish with shine. It glides on the lips a bit too easily so I suggest wearing a lip liner with this one. It is very opaque and it took two swipes to completely cover my pigmented lips. The wear time not good. It’s one of those lippies you need to reapply after you eat it drink anything.

However, because it’s so opaque it does stain your lips so if you eat it completely, you still have some colour.

The packaging is not great. The lipstick doesn’t turn all the way down. So you know that cap is going to graze the lipstick. I all shook the lipstick and heard it move. But it was solid, when I applied it. Bizarre, right?


I’d give this a go, because they have really bright colours in the line and if you want to try them out without spending a fortune, this is for you

Price: R24, 99 (I know, it’s amazing!)
