OVERALL THOUGHTS
For what they are, they're good products. I can't knock it down because personally for me, I'm not into moisturizing lip balms or lip sticks because of their sheerness. Not a fan of tinted lip colors, I should say. But they are moisturizing and have pretty good color payoff and all are opaque within a few applications. I'm not a fan of shimmer lip products, and majority of these were of shimmer texture.

What I definitely did not like was the plastic wrapping of these MegaShields. Oh man, was it a huge pain to unravel it all. Normally, WNW has sticker guards or plastic shields to prevent from opening - which is a great thing! These on the other hand, I don't think Houdini would've escaped it. It had the plastic shield and on top of that the NEW sticker and also the product ingredient list - which happens to be a sticker itself wrapped around the entire product. When all is removed, it leaves that sticky residue, bleh, I was highly annnoyed that dust/hair/paper was being stuck to them. I know you can clean them off but it was just too extra. Hopefully they rethink the protective shields in future products.

RECOMMENDATIONS
My favorite out the bunch was It's A Girl, the one that I think will compliment most skin tones, as it's on the soft pink side and creme texture. A Currant Affair is nice too for those who love red lip colors and benefit added moisture.

  3. I have bought two of these. I have purchased Birthday Suit and Within These Adobe Walls. To be honest, I'm not sure I like these lipsticks in comparison to the Mega Last lipsticks. These do not last long on my lips at all. Also, as far as colors, Birthday Suit was not cute on me at all. Love Within These Adobe Walls, but again, it just doesn't last long enough. :-(

    1. I wouldn't really call them lipsticks, more like tinted lip balms. MegaLast by far outshines but to be fair they're not comparable. Hopefully you got your receipt ;) haha

  6. I'm not big on shimmery lip products either. It sucks that a lot of these are frost/shimmer finishes. I do like that's berry beautiful, it's a girl and within these adobo walls. Thanks for the swatches and Review Celly!

  8. I wasn't a big fan of the colors I chose, which were Pink Champagne and Peachy Keen, because of the frostiness. But I did like the formula so I'll probably try out the non-frosty shades soon!
