Upon first purchasing this from my local Walmart, I had been under the impression that it was a highly pigmented lip gloss. Imagine my surprise when, within minutes of applying it, it completely dried to a matte finish that would not budge no matter what I tried! At first I was horrified; what was this CEMENT I was applying to my lips? However I quickly learned how to work with this product. You need to scrape excess product off of the wand before you even THINK about putting it on your lips, unless you would like a heavily caked on lip color that feels literally like concrete. Make sure to have exfoliated and moisturized lips ahead of time. Apply this product very precisely with a lip brush, because once it has set you will be unable to fix any mistakes. Do not, I repeat DO NOT rub lips together even once the product is dry! Just don't! And try to avoid lip glosses or balms on top as this will break the product down and eliminate the point of using a lip stain. Okay. Now that you've gotten all that down what you'll be left with is this: an extremely pigmented precise lip color that will not budge. I have eaten meals with this stuff, had a pretty intense make-out session and gone swimming in a chlorinated pool and finished the day with almost no smudges. Be careful of eating greasy foods as this could break the product down. And at the end of the day make sure you do not try to remove this with soap and water, I'm serious. You will need any product you own that is oil based, I find coconut oil to be the best. Enjoy!

People, you are using it wrong. Its not a traditional lip gloss or lipstick. Its a long wearing stain. These arent terrible like the Revlon liquid lipstick which no matter what I tried, it failed horribly. I have tried the fuchsia one and while I did like it and it did stay a lot longer than my other lip stains, I wanted something pinky. So I chose Click on my hyper pink. You have to scrub your lips with something gritty before trying this. Wear a good chap stick beforehand. Afterward, LISTEN CLOSELY, you dab it with your fingers, almost like a stain. If you want, layer it lightly with a lip gloss. I swear, I've been looking high and low for that lip stain that could actually look fresh and girly, like baby lips. I tried Posietint but it took many layers to get my desired result and it chapped my lips out. I tried the marker pens and they were always a deep berry shade. This works if you dab it on a little and spread it with you fingers. Its not rocket science.

I bough the rose color today and while the color is pretty, DANG is this product's formula bad. Like really BAD. It looks like cement on the lips. Dry, flaky, uneven, rose colored cement. If you put gloss on top, it becomes an uneven mess. It stays on like cement too. I took this off with coconut oil like another user suggested, but I split (hurt) my lips anyway. Not cool. Bottom line this goes in the garbage bin. Very disappointing, and surprising at the same time. Who would put such a bad product on the shelves? Its crap.

I read the reviews and YES THEY ARE VERY DRYING. These remind me A LOT of the ROUGE DOUBLE INTENSITE by Chanel but without the gloss. Those are unwearable without gloss. They feel dry and weird BUT the color is intense and will not come off. You need oil to remove, I use coconut oil. For $2 these are amazing IMO. I don't like wet or glossy lips anyway so I don't mind the dryness at all. I picked up the color Back to the Fuschia and it's a beautiful bright reddish pink. These will definitely not be for everyone but if you enjoy matte/dry lips then give them a go!

When I saw the colors of Wet n Wild's Megalast Liquid Lip Color, I fell in love. I purchased Red My Mind (921A) and Back to the Fushia (923A) with the plan of coming back for more if the product was good. I was so amazed that it passed the "kiss test" and was so happy that it didn't get all over my teeth (I have very large teeth, and very big, strange-shaped lips so lip color on the teeth is always an issue for me)!! The product is the same color on your lips as in tube, no primer or lip pencil required. The downfall is, it's so drying! The first time I wore it, it was for only two hours so it wasn't that big of an issue. The second time I wore it for 5 hours, and after about 3 hours of wear my lips started feeling so miserable, like they were burning from dryness. I removed it the second I got home and my lips were so dry, I thought my bottom lip was going to crack. They felt like that for the next two days despite constant vaseline and blistex applications. I've seen other reviewers recommend to put lip balm on before and/or after the product. I tried putting balm on before and it made the product to slippery to even apply. I cleaned off my lips and tried putting the lip balm on after applying the Megalast Liquid Lipcolor and found that the product looked splotchy. On my lips, it does not play nicely with moisture.

It's a great color, it's long lasting. I wear carmax underneath the lip gloss, because without it your lips would be chapped and the product would be harder to remove. Great product, I own 2 colors and I love them.

I hate it. I bought it in the color click on my hyperpink because I thought it was a lipgloss. Instead I got neon barbie pink paint. I can't wear this color anywhere. I used it when I got home and it smells like glue, dries blotchy and unevenly and takes several coats to get an even color, it's really sticky, and it dries out your lips, plus it stains! Never repurchasing any of these!

The colors are beautiful, but the formula is AWFUL!!! It goes on wet and dries on your lips like concrete. I wore this to a party and could not get it to wash off. I was too tired to fight with it, so I slept in it and it was still completely on the next morning. In order to remove it, I had to scrub my lips so hard that they became swollen and sore. I love most Wet N Wild products, but I would not recommend this product to anyone!

I am constantly looking for a long wear lipstick that works and is accually long lasting. I've tried other brands products and have found that they don't do so well and don't live up to their claims. I do not like to reapply lipstick every hour and long wear lipsticks/lip stains really appeal to me. I liked this lip gloss for the first 5 minutes and after that it flaked apart and got to be a sticky mess!
After using another brand's long lasting/lip stains without satisfaction I was hesitant to buy these, but they were only $2.99 (and had a $1.00 off coupon attached). So I paid $1.99 for one and $2.99 for another one that was missing the coupon but I liked the color. I purchased 926A Pink Perfection, and 925A Do I make You Blush? So far I have only tried 926A Pink perfection and this is the one I am reviewing.
The packaging is nice as it does show the ingredients which many companies do not do. It is very sleek, and the plastic tube does not seem like it will leak.
After opening 926A I applied it to my lips in the car and it goes on nice and silky. It is a lovely shade of light pink and you can put on less for a more sheer look. I knew right away that I would like it because I could feel it dry within a few minutes and when I pressed my lips on my hand there was no transfer! (Which is amazing for "long lasting" products.) BUT...
When I got home I noticed it started to flake off and get crusty and nasty, so I wiped it off and reapplied several times with the SAME results. I feel extremely dissapointed that I bought another useless long wear lip stain/gloss. It is very sticky and I thought that I was not letting the product dry long enough before pressing my lips together and it was making an ugly mess on my lips. So I let it dry for a longer time without pressing them together (I waited for about 5 minutes) And when I felt they were COMPLETELY dry I tested it and it did not get AS mushy and icky. I found myself doing more for it's application than I would like to do. For this Reason I DO NOT recommend. I found myself worrying more about if my lipstick looked clumpy and dumb than anything else :(. (Which I just do not normally do.) It was hard to talk as it was cakey.
It is drying on the lips. (Not nearly as drying as Cover Girl's Outlast Lipstain) . I would not recommend using ANY lip gloss over it at all because the gloss will come off and get messy.
Very quick drying.
Great colors and highly pigmented.
Product breaks apart if you press your lips together, (even after it is "set"!)
Too tacky after it is dry.
Lipgloss over it breaks the product apart and gets messy.
Does not last as long at ALL.
Drys lips out.
I tried really hard to work with this prouduct because I enjoy Wet N Wild products but this one is just a mess.
It is nasty on your lips so because of this reason I will not rebuy and both of them are going back to rite aid.

I have the shade "Rose to the Occasion." It is a beautiful magenta rose shade that is highly pigmented. It really flatters my medium skin tone. The consistency was somewhat watery. At first I thought I got a bad batch but realized it dried super quick on my lips. It left my lips feeling very dry and tacky feeling on its own. When you use a base and apply a top coat like others have suggested, it looks and feels much better. A lot of work to do on busy mornings, however it lasts very well through eating and drinking. For now I will stick to the megalast lipsticks.

These are probably my favorite lipstains that I've ever tried, from any price point but I have to admit, I had no idea that they were lip stains when I purchased my first one ;P They appear to be glosses UNTIL you apply one, then you get that "lipstain" feeling and know that these are NOT glosses whatsoever lol
So with that being said, they do need an oil cleanser or balm type of cleanser to be removed (without scrubbing your lips off) I personally have been using J&J Baby Oil for removal with ease :)
Unfortunately these stains most definitely need to be be worn with gloss or balm, whether it be applied before or after, they're too dry/tight feeling on their own. But I don't want to take any points(lippies) away from these for that reason only because I assume the reason they have that "tight" feeling is what makes them perform so well (I personally don't have any real "issues" with wearing gloss/balm with these but others may not care for that aspect)
Regardless, I have 3 now and they're EXTREMELY pigmented & longer lasting than anything else I've tried. Red My Mind & Pink Perfection have lasted through 2-3 meals and a nap without fading away even the slightest - amazing right?!
Like I said above, I have Pink Perfection, Red My Mind, & also I Can Bare It. Pink Perfection is a beautiful baby pink that appears to have a slight bit of shimmer but is semi-matte at the same time (if that even makes sense?)
I Can Bare It is a deep nude and my least favorite of the 3 I own. It's "said" to be the shade that Fergie is wearing in some of the individual display's for these MegaLast Liquid's, but it didn't look the same on me as it did on Fergie lol - Much deeper and *almost* gave me that "too dark concealer lips" kinda look which isn't always flattering..I decided to keep it though and use it to tone down some of my brighter lipsticks that are hard for me to pull off .
I'm between N10 & NC15 at the moment (fair with mostly neutral undertones that lean slightly warm), with dark brown hair & eyes for reference.
Red My Mind is stunning! I am EXTREMELY picky with red lipsticks.. For whatever reason, I can't seem to pull off reds as easily as others do - not sure if it's my skintone or what, but I can honestly say that I've tried at one point in time or another probably close to 50 red lipstick shades, and only have TWO that I can say I LOVE - Revlon SuperLustrous in Really Red, & Revlon's Lip Butter in Red Velvet. I have a few other reds that I like, but they don't do it for me the way those other two do - Until now, now I can say I have THREE red lipsticks that I love now thanks to WnW's Red My Mind! :) I have to say though, if I apply Red My Mind with a heavy hand it looks a bit scary on my super pale skin, so I have to be light handed with it and dab a little balm on my lips before applying and a little gloss or balm on again after applying, but the end result is great. For anyone who loves red lipsticks, Red My Mind is one you need to try! &For anyone who loves how reds look on other people but have a tough time finding reds that look flattering on you, I'd recommend Red My Mind to you as well :)
I'd also highly recommend Pink Perfection to anyone who loves pink-y, or pinky nude lipstick shades. I fall in love with anything light pink or nude pink, especially blue based pinks. - Pink Perfection is no exception. It's somewhere between a *slightly* blue based light baby pink & a nude pink. Stunning.
Overall, for $2.99 these are exceptional! Another great quality pigmented lip product from Wet 'n Wild - I'll definitely repurchase Pink Perfection & Red My Mind, and I also plan to try out other shades from this line.

When I bought this product, I was a litte hesitant that it wasn't going to be true to its color. I bought both the 924A Click on my HyperPink and 923A Back To the Fuchsia. -But I love this product! I am so amazed with the its colors. The only downside of this product was that its really dry. After applying it on, you can see it drying out. To take the liquid lip color off, I used Oilve Oil to remove its pigmentation from my lips. Then again, this is what helps it to last longer. Nonetheless, Wet-n-Wild's prices are cheap, I say go for it. I will definitely purchase it again!

I just picked up 930A Raisin' the Roof, and it's pure love. I am really impressed with it. I put it on around 11 am and it was still on in good condition after eating twice by 7 pm. Fantastic! I love the color, but I will say that it feels a little weird at first as it's setting, but once that's done it's fine. I really am loving this lip color. I will be picking up two other colors too, I couldn't justify buying more than one at first but with them being so inexpensive I'll be picking up a couple others. I got mine for $2.49 at Walgreen's because it had a $1 off instant coupon, so make sure you check for that.

I have a love/hate relationship with this product. I bought mine in Rockin' Raisin, which looks like a gorgeous metallic rose in the bottle and when you first apply it on your lips. However, after 10 minutes it turns into an awful matte purple. Yes, PURPLE. I have tried everything, the best of which was applying a bit to my lower lip, pressing my lips together, and then wiping most of it off. It seriously will last at least 6 hours, even through eating and drinking. The problem is, you really don't want it to last that long. Very drying, but that's why it holds so well. Won't repurchase because it's too hard to make it work.

I bought CHERRY ON TOP today, and I love it. I put a spf balm underneath and the color on top. It looks good even matte. However, I think I will put balm on top of it as well, it is a little too drying.

I have two of these to review: Coral Me Bad and Rose to the Occasion. These came out along with the spring Fergie collection at drugstores. When I first spotted these, I was very excited due to the variety of vibrant shades available and the very low price. I got two shades to try out. These are definitely lip colors and not lip glosses. You have to apply the color and wait a few seconds for it to dry before applying another coat. The good: these lip colors are highly pigmented, opaque, and come in a variety of beautiful shades. The applicator is a paddle-shaped brush which deposits a lot of color with only a single swipe.
Now on to the bad and the reason why I probably won't purchase more of these: this product is extremely drying. Extremely. Without a lip balm or chapstick on underneath, your lips will end up looking very chapped and dry. To make it more comfortable on, I put a balm on BEFORE and AFTER I wore this product. A lip product shouldn't require this much work to make it feel good on. Such a shame since I really like the colors I picked.
Coral Me Bad: a vibrant reddish-coral with slight shimmer.
Rose to the Occasion: a rich mauve-wine shade.
These lipsticks are meant to be a lip stain and long-wearing (perhaps that's why they're so drying?). If Wet 'n Wild improved their formula with these and made them more moisturizing, these would be a hit.
