Another season, another reason (albeit a tenuous one) for buying new makeup! I bought these a bit ago from the Wet n’ Wild website, but I’m starting to hear people talk about being able to find them in their local drugstores.
First things first, of course I had to add to my collection of drugstore liquid lipsticks! I didn’t go quite as crazy with these as I did with the Jordana ones, managing to limit my purchase to three of the new MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipsticks, Give Me Mocha, Rebel Rose, and Nudie Patootie.
Color-wise, I ❤ Give Me Mocha the most, with Rebel Rose taking 2nd place, and Nudie Patootie being pretty, but a bit cadaverous on my skin tone. Probably best suited for pairing with a statement black smokey eye.
The colors were similar in texture and finish, and none of them had any particular scent or taste (Yay!). I found them to be comfortable and definitely easy to apply, with that new dipped in doe-foot that’s all the rage these days.
They also worked nicely over the new Perfect Pout Gel Lip Liner, of which I also purchased three! Gone Burgundy, Bare to Comment, Think Flamingos.
These glide on really nicely, no tugging on the lips at all 🙂
Next up, I was quite intrigued when I saw they’d come out with MegaCushions, so I bought the two that seemed most likely to be useful to me, the highlighter (one shade only) and the peach corrector for my undereye caverns.
The packaging, frankly, is a bit fussy. Too many separate little parts. My preferred way to apply these is with a stippling brush, so I don’t get much use out of the pad, and I think it would be easier if the lids were attached on one side with a hinge, rather than being removable. Also, you need to be careful you push down fully on the little lid that keeps the cushion part from drying out.
The MegaCushion Highlight, Who’s That Pearl, is really lovely, at least on my fair skin tone. It’s gives a natural, glowy sheen, that’s very every day wearable. I think it’s going to become a workday staple for me, fussiness notwithstanding.
Definitely a contrast to their other new cream highlight, which I also purchased, the MegaGlo Makeup Stick in the Highlight shade. This is disco highlight at it’s finest <3. It arrived broken, but I’m keeping it anyway!
Last, and to be honest, least, is the MegaCushion Color Corrector in Peach. It just didn’t work for me. While it’s definitely full coverage, it’s not quite peachy enough to neutralize the darkness, so it just ends up looking like a paler shade of gray… also, I found it to be a tad creasy. It might work for someone with younger, less dark undereyes, but I won’t be using again.
Oh well, you can’t win ’em all, and I’m still thinking about getting the green one to see how it does with the redness and hyperpigmentation I have. Let me know if you’ve used it and liked it!
