While the product does not seem particularly resistant to smearing or rub-off, it does seem to hold color well until it finally wears off. I've no previous experience with long-lasting lipcolor, so I didn't know what to expect. The lipstick applies smoothly. My main complaint is that the lipstick does not completely withdraw, making for sliced lipstick. The color itself is good and I would definitely buy it again.
this is a big NO for me. i'm sorry. bought this color based on these reviews, hated it the second i saw it on my lips, and returned it the very same day. i have Mauve Outta Here, plus three of the Fergie lipsticks in this formulation, so that's not the issue. i was extremely bummed to see an odd and unflattering magenta (not even a cute fuchsia!!) when i applied 'Stoplight Red'. no stoplight on the planet is that hideous color!! got Milani Red Label Color Statement lipstick as a replacement, time will tell with that, but at least the Milani is actually red (pretty important when purchasing a red lipstick!!)
Another awesome Wet 'n' Wild product. The color is true, bright, bright red. It goes on smooth and stays on for hours. If you eat, you might have to reapply just at the center of your lips, but otherwise it's got awesome staying power and doesn't dry out your lips either. I looked for this shade all over town and finally found it. Totally worth the wait! I hate the packaging on this stuff, you can't roll it down all the way, so you have to be really careful putting the cap back on, but for $2 you can't complain.
Stoplight Red. Great name for this lipstick. Although not as blue-red on me as I might have thought. More of a coral red, very similar to Revlon's Fire and Ice bright red. A very pretty brilliant red that lights up your face. Megalast has lasting power through drinking and eating for a number of hours. How does Wet 'n' Wild do it for a few bucks? And cruelty-free? We should all support this company. They've partnered with Dress For Success and donated nail polish to disadvantaged women who are attempting to enter the job market so they can have a polished finish for their job interviews. They believe makeup should be affordable and a lipstick shouldn't cost a paycheck. It's on their website. But I digress.
This is my second latest favorite color. Just be careful to turn the lipstick down or you'll smush it with the cap. I do like that the cap is see-through so that I can tell what lipsticks are what colors easily enough in my makeup bag. It goes on smoothly and doesn't feather. It lines my lips well enough, too. The reds stay on so well I have to remove the remnants with my facial cleanser. This one is not matte nor gloss, just a hint of a shine. To me it's a dupe of Fire and Ice, like I said. A nice pick me up color to wear to brighten your day. Seems I never go wrong with this company.
I got this product via an ebay seller because sadly wetnwild isn't available where I live. I'm very fond of bright red lipstikcs and color-wise this perfectly fits the bill. Its lasting power is quite good as well, though I do find it a bit drying. However my big complaint is that you get what you pay for in terms of packaging. I'm not one to be turned down because of a cheap looking packaging but this is super flimsy. I take extra good care of items that are hard to find for me and this was no exception, however after two uses the lipstick broke at the base and I can only put it on with a lipbrush now...which I don't like at all.
Where has this been all of my life? PERFECT red lipstick, and I've tried several! I was turned on to it because I heard it was a dupe for Russian Red, which I've been wanting to try. It really has the same lasting power as MAC or more expensive brands and doesn't bleed or get on my teeth, which is one of my major complaints with reds! It's such a gorgeous shade too, it's really bright and semi-matte, which I love. You would be crazy not to try this, considering it's so cheap and so awesome!
THIS IS AMAZING!
I know wetnwild is well known for their soft eyeshadows (awesome quality!!) but i decided to take a chance and try out their lipsticks as well. I was going to pick out the cheapest of them all, but the red caught my eye, and it was the only one left( unopened too!) hiding behind a bunch of other lipsticks. I'm so glad I got it, only for 1.97 at my local walmart. The formula is nice, and the packaging is the infamous wetnwild packaging- kind of annoying since the stick juts out over the top of the tube so when you put the cap back onto the lipstick, you have to be careful not to slice the lipstick. THe color payoff is amazing, makes my teeth look white, and overpowers the pink acne on my face so the attention is drawn to my lips while dulling out other less-reddish tones on my face. I have yet to wear it for a whole day, but I just unpackaged it and its amazing. I feel like the color payoff and quality overpowers the back packaging. It's managable - you just have to be careful.
I finally got my hands on this little gem since it is always sold out at my local drugstores and for good reason. It is the perfect blue-based red I have been looking for. It is not too matte and has very good staying power though I have to use a lip brush to get more precision. Best of all it is cheap and doesn't dry out my lips. The packaging is not the best but I can live with that.
This is the perfect retro red for me. I have (and will continue to do so) repurchased on several occasions. It's like MAC's Ruby Woo, but not drying at all. I get up to 8 hours of wear with no bleeding. Sometimes, just to be safe I line my lips with NYX's liner in Hot Red and I think it helps the color last even longer.
This lipstick lasts and lasts and lasts! I wore it yesterday all day through several meals, ice skating and it looked just a bit more matte by the end of the night! So sold on these that I got a few more. I paid $1.99 for this at Wallgreens. The only reason I will not get this again is because I need a more orange read for my NW45 skintone. They look best on me when wearing on the nails and lips. So I think the Megalast lippie in red velvet needs to be my next purchase. Also, this isn't actually matte. It had a sheen on me for the entire day. It has color saturation like you would not believe, though. Well done, Wet 'n Wild!
