This is definitely a close dupe for MAC Viva Glam Nicki. I have both and I find that both need gloss to be wearable on me. I am looking forward to the spring and summer to see if I wear it more often. It might be a good idea to try out pinkerbell to see if you would really wear nicki or if you would be wasting your money on it.
I gave it a 4 because it is a great value but it won't work for everyone.
Love, love, love Wet 'N' Wild Mega Last Lip Colors - but Pinkerbell is definitely my favorite! Yes, it's a bit *too much* if you swipe it all over your lips, but, if you dab in a few places & rub the lips together - it looks beautiful! A wash of this pretty pink over your lips looks beautiful. Plus, you cannot beat the price. continued >>
I LOVE this color. It's a bright, clear yellow-toned bubblegum pink. My lips are lightly pigmented and my complexion is pale (NC15). On me, "Pinkerbell" leans coral and is bright enough to be a "fun" color, but it's not over the top. It's flattering, not garish. The matte texture might help this color look more subdued, too. It is fairly drying on the lips, but I layer a balm underneath to counter-act that. It lasts for about 4 hours and fades away evenly. The packaging looks and feels cheap and wobbly, but for $2 or less, I'm not complaining.
Had I known this was meant to be a dupe for Nikki Minaj's Viva Glam lipstick, I would have stayed away to be honest. It isn't very flattering on my pigmented lips. Have only swiped it on and felt i looked like a clown! Have yet to wear it out- will see if i change my mind in the warmer months.
Typical plus points of wet n wild lipsticks- great texture, no unwelcoming scent, long lasting, pigmented etc etc. Just not for me!
I hate the name, but I like the color. This is a very bright nearly fuchsia pink that is quite vibrant, but not as in your face as Dollhouse Pink. It has a similar very matte finish, but it lasts pretty well. The photo on this page obviously has some clear gloss added to it, so don't expect the lipstick to be shiny like that.
This lipstick is a great color. However, this lipstick (as well as the rest of the mega last lip color line) dries my lips out after 4 or 5 hours. So if you are going to wear this lipstick, I would suggest in between reapplications, wipe the lipstick completely off, moisturize your lips, then reapply. And definitely moisturize and exfoliate your lips before the initial application.
OMG I adore this lipstick. In the past months I got fed up with cool toned pinks so I fell in love with this color the minute I saw the swatch. I don't have MAC's Nicki so I have no idea which one is better, all I know is this one has a better rating, just don't know if it's because it's better or just because it's so much cheaper. Like the other lipsticks in Wnw's Mega lasts range this lipstick doesn't have any shimmer or glitter, it is matte but it has a creamy texture. It's not drying at all. It's summer here now so the lipstick feels very creamy and not at all drying on my lips but I'm not sure it will perform as well in cooler months, at least the other lipsticks in the Mega last range don't (as far as I can remember). It lasts about three hours on me. It doesn't have a scent or taste.The color is quite flattering on my NW15 skin and it looks even better when I put a little self-tanner on. I would definitely repurchase.
I just really hate the packaging, I always fear the cap will fall off or that I will hit the lipstick with it.
This is SUCH a gorgeous lipstick! Against my light golden/brown/slightly olive skin and on my moderately pigmented lips, it's an almost-neon (or soft neon?) bright (but not obnoxiously so) clean, yellow-toned pink. It reminds me a lot of some of the yellowed pink/coral shades MAC has come out with in the last year and a half or so, only it's much more pigmented and opaque and has better staying power. And is honestly just prettier. It has a totally matte finish and is such an awesome pop of color that really brightens and flatters. For $1.99 it's just amazing. I purchased another Mega Last Lip Color at the same time that I got this one and I love it just as much. Sometimes I don't know why I even bother buying so many HE lipsticks. I've never once been disappointed by a Wet 'n' Wild lipstick.
Its a pretty color, similar to mac nicki but dries my lips out. Leaves a disgusting residue. I dont reapply my LP all the time but with this i had to constantly reapply to get rid of streaks. I did not like the smell either but after a couple tries didnt even notice. The texture is my biggest complaint at least its only $2. Will not repurchase will try CG temptress for a mac nicki dupe, tried that n its A bit more moisturizing. Bad packaging always touches the cap.
After a while on the lips it does clump. Im changing lippies. Not flattering!
I love this lipstick. I have other colors in the mega last matte collection but this one is my favorite. It has so many gold undertones it looks great on my golden deep olive skin. I put on a balm first then the lipstick lightly because the color is very vibrant. I also put it on my cheeks I love the pop of color it flushes to. Brightens my look up and is great with my dark brown hair. If you're of a darker or olive hue don't be scared to try this out. Sometimes I apply it more heavily for night time but I like doing it lightly for daytime hours.
