Wet N' Wild MegaLast Lipstick - DollHouse Pink Review

Once upon a time I was on the hunt for a bright pink lipstick. In my quest I amassed quite a collection of deeper pinks that were just too dark for my liking. Think M.A.C.'s Girl About Town. I could dedicate an entire post based on dupes for it. I wanted a Barbie pink, something a little lighter but not too light.

I had forgotten about my mission when I walked by a Wet N' Wild display at Target and something caught my eye: their MegaLast lipstick in Dollhouse Pink. I've never bought a MegaLast lipstick before and had never seen this shade but it looked gorgeous and for $1.99, it was worth a try.

MISSION COMPLETED! THIS is the color I've been looking for. I've only had this lipstick for a few weeks, but I just LOVE it. 

On their website, Wet N' Wild describes MegaLast lipstick as a 4-hour, longwear lip color with a semi-matte, creme finish.
Can I go off for a minute on how much I love the finish? I love my shimmer, glitter, and sparkle, but it's easy to add by mixing or layering products. It's not so easy to remove all that from a product though, so I like matte and creme finishes.
These weren't always a drugstore staple so I'm glad brands are branching out. When I picked this up and applied it the first time, it reminded me to a much more expensive product, like something I'd expect out of M.A.C. I'm so used to drugstore lip products having a bunch of shimmer in it!

I'm also glad that they're picking up on color trends and are putting out brighter more bold colors. DollHouse Pink is a new shade in this line, along with several others. Oh, and they all have cute names too.
For me, lighter shades like this don't last that long on my lips. This actually holds up decently after eating and even drinking with a straw. I like this lipstick because I don't like to tote my makeup products around with me. The only time I ever do so is when I know I'll be performing and might need a touch up. With this, I can actually rock a brighter, lighter color and get away without reapplying later.

All in all, I love this product. I love it enough that I've been wearing it on it's own, even without lipgloss.  It's not a hardcore longwear lipstick or stain, but I like that because it isn't as drying as some of them either. The texture is nice and creamy. As with all mattes and cremes, especially lighter shades, I'd recommend exfoliating before using this. Other than that? Rock on. I'd for surely purchase this again, along with several other shades. Props to Wet N' Wild for stepping out of the box with both the color and the finish. With this I can add shimmer or gloss if I want, or rock it matte. It's nice to know that I can have my cake and eat it too (and still have fabulous Barbie lips afterwards.)
