I wanted to buy WnW's Megalast Lipstick in Sugar Plum Fairy. I couldn't find WnW's Megalast Lipstick in Sugar Plum Fairy in any of the four stores I checked. I decided to pick up a Silk Finish lippie as a consolation prize. I wavered between Dark Wine and Black Orchid, and I went with Dark Wine for its cooler tones.
If the Megalast line is a touch too draggy, the Silk Finish line has a bit too much slip. Application was creamy and manageable, however. Silk Finish has the edge over Megalast for packaging (but neither product comes in particularly luxe packaging). You can feel the lipstick rattling around in its case, and the protruding bullet is easy to ding with the cap, but I will chalk these flaws up to the lipstick's two-dollar price point.
Worn at full force, this lippie doesn't last for a very long time--any food or drink or kissing session will finish it off--but blot Dark Wine down to a stain and it will last for awhile, or pair Dark Wine with a lipliner. This is a really lovely, cool-toned berry-red shade with the perfect amount of sheen to it; you can easily blot it down to a pinker berry shade.
Would repurchase, especially in anticipation of the cooler months.
The color is a lot deeper than I was expecting but it's absolutely beautiful!!!!! It's very creamy and I liked that it doesn't stain my skin as much as others do :)
Beyond perfect red with great lasting power, even wear, and it's $2 - so basically a godsend. It has a permanent place in my arsenal.
This is my most favorite dark lipstick. I have fair skin so most dark colors look horrible on me, especially reds. This however is gorgeous. It's not too dark, it's not too bright. It's a perfect wine/cranberry. It also stains my lips so I don't have to reapply too often. This doesn't dry out my lips either which is a problem I have with most lipsticks. Yes, the packaging is super cheap and it doesn't feel or smell as luxurious as high end lipsticks but the color is amazing and it's only 99 cents! It If you're fair with dark hair and looking for a nice deep red try this first before you invest in something more expensive :)
I bought this around Christmas time hoping to find a cheap dark red or plum lipstick for the season. I bought this for 99 cents and another lipstick for 64 cents because of the deal going on at CVS. The first time I tried this on, it kinda reminded me of Clinique's black honey lipstick. The smell isn't the greatest but it wears off in minutes you can hardly notice it! This is the perfect every day fall lipstick. It's so wearable, and you can make it sheer or as bold as you want it! It makes my teeth look so white. It's very moisturizing too! This is better than all my lipsticks that I own. You can wear it just about anytime of the year. The price is just amazing too!
Pros : the price, and the color, the texture
Cons : the smell, the packaging, the need of a lip brush to apply
so i decided to try this lipstick, i thought, why not, its only 1,60$ !
although it was the color i was looking for, when i got home and tried it on, i was very disappointed. yes, the color looks great on my lips, and the texture is smooth and creamy, but IT SMELLS LIKE PLAYDOUGH. big disappointment there.
then, if you decide to apply it directly from the tube (which porbably most of us do) the bullet kinda moves around in the tube! so when you try to be precise around the edges of your lips, failure. So i guess it needs to be applied with a brush, or you need to a lip liner first. to me, thats not worth it, especially considering the smell.
i guess it IS worth it to spend 10$ for another brand.
I pair this with MAC's lip pencil in Vino and just love it. The color is amazing and I see it looking good on all skin tones. The texture is creamy and has a beautiful sheen to it. It also smells like cherries. Would definitely buy again.
A nicely pigmented deep berry shade that has opaque coverage even on my pigmented lips. It glides on evenly and smoothly like silk. It looks like my daily wear shade- MAC Hot Tahiti.
I don't wear it often but the colour looks super nice on me. It's a deep, red-toned plum. It has a pretty nice texture, but I usually put it on over lip chap anyways, because my lips are so dry. Plus, it's so cheap, even in Canada. I will likely repurchase, and will probably buy a few other colours from this line.
Gorgeous color! It looks dark/intimidating in the tube but applies as a beautiful professional looking medium wine color. It has no shimmer and a slight amount of shine. It's also a great moisturizer so you don't need to wear lip balm underneath. I will be repurchasing. It's my new staple to look cleaned up, classy and sophisticated.
