Back in grade school, my parents only got me the 24-carton Crayola crayons. So, every time my classmate would whip out her 96-box, I would just drool over it and get overly jealous! Can’t seem to get enough of the cool color names like, “periwinkle”, “burnt sienna”, “forest green,” and “cornflower blue”. I think my favorite crayon back then was the “lime green”.
I don’t think my fascination with these colored crayons ever stopped – it just transformed into the love for lipsticks! I got three more colors from the Wet n Wild Megalast line (which I love) and had my sister pick a 4th one for herself.
For myself, I got In the Flesh, Smokin Hot Pink and Cherry Bomb, while my sister got Coral-ine. My favorite color out of the bunch had to be In the Flesh – it’s the perfect MLBB shade for me! I was looking for a nude that didn’t wash me out, and this seems to be a great browny pinky nude that was almost like the color of my lips. Good thing I chanced upon it on one of the posts on Beautylish.
I did some lazy lip swatching with nothing on my face but the lipsticks, so please excuse my bare skin and all it’s eeky eekiness. I am not sure if the color translates well in the photos, and some are blurry, but these could be helpful, so might as well post it. I know the application is really uneven, (that last one looks really awful, haha) but meh, today was a very lazy day.
From top to bottom: In the Flesh, Smokin Hot Pink, Coraline, Cherry Bomb
In the Flesh: Perfect my-lips-but-better everyday shade. Glides on well, lasts fairly long.
Smokin Hot Pink: Really bright, shocking pink! I’m reserving this shade for nights out with the girls, maybe.
Coraline: I’m not a fan of this shade. It looks like a cross between red and orange, and I’m very fond of red lipsticks, so why not just go red right away? Or a full on orange? I’m probably getting Purty Persimmon or 24 Carrot Gold next.
Cherry Bomb: I got this mainly for shock factor. Looks so bold and vampy. Rawrrr. :3
What’s your fave color from the Megalast Lipsticks?
