Wet n Wild Megaslicks Balm Stains

It was only a matter of time before Wet n Wild got in on the 'jumbo lip pencil' trend. I'm not complaining, because I'm a sucker for lip pencils. I have tried and loved so many different ones high end and drugstore, so of course I had to get these ones! 




I could only find five shades, but there are six in total. I also heard that these are going to be permanent, so there's no need to worry about rushing out to find them!




Swatches from top to bottom: Nudist Colony, A Stiff Pink, Reddy or Not, Rico Mauve, and Lady and the Vamp. 

Nudist Colony is yellowy beige. A Stiff Pink is a bright blue based pink, Reddy or Not is a blue based cherry red. Rico Mauve is a deep pinky mauve. Lady and the Vamp is a bright reddish purple. These were two swipes each, all shades have a cream finish. 

Claims: I couldn't find any claims on these yet! 
Pigmentation: They are nicely pigmented. One or two swipes will get you full color. The stain they leave behind is also pigmented and not patchy. 
Finish/Texture:The finish is creamy with a subtle shine. The texture is very smooth.
Lasting Power: It lasted on me for about 3 hours. The shine dies down after that, and the stain it leaves behind is even and not dry or patchy looking. 
Scent: I didn't notice any scent.
Packaging: The caps on the tubes are really loose, so these may be hard to travel with.
Price/Availability: I paid $3 and ( I also got BOGO 50% off )each at CVS        


Likes:

  • Pigmented
  • Stain wears evenly
  • Nice variety of colors
  • Inexpensive
  • Creamy finish & texture
Dislikes:
  • They don't feel hydrating
  • Cap easily falls off
  • Aren't as long lasting as other drugstore stains
Overall:
These didn't really knock my socks off, but I think that they are 'okay' for the price. They did leave behind a decent stain, and the pigmentation is impressive. However, I wasn't crazy about the way that these felt on my lips.. they aren't moisturizing at all. Be careful if you tend to have dry lips, because I feel like that could be an issue.

Overall, I wouldn't recommend these over the Hard Candy All Glossed Up pencils, or the Jordana Twist and Shines, but I do think that some people will find these enjoyable since they are pretty cheap compared to most drugstore stains. These aren't anywhere near being a favorite for me, but I don't think that they are terrible. All in all, I would say if you want to try them, wait for them to go on sale.

  1. I've been waiting for WnW to come out with something like this! I don't think I'll be getting any because I went a little crazy on Revlon and Clinique. Thanks for the great swatches. :)

  2. I do love my Hard Candy balms, so I may pass on these. Though, a stiff pink looks bright and beautiful! :)
