Update-have to bump it down to a 3 cuz the color is more pink coral not really as peachy as I thought in the initial lighting. also the texture is not the best
Colorwise, this is one of the all time most flattering color on me, totally HG status. It is a matte, creamy peach with a hint of pink. I am just so in love with this, looks so super good against my warm NC30 skin. This would be a great nude for some one w/ dark skin. The texture is matte and opaque and I love that. I goes on sort of dry and I smear it around with my fingers to get it all even and it stays matte, dry and lasts pretty well. It does highlight dry parts but its not too bad. I heard good things about these l/s but judging by the packaging, almost couldn't bring myself to buy one but now I will go back and buy lots!

This is what I wanted Revlon's colorburst in soft nude to be like... This looks great with my warm skin tone! I haven't a problem with the packaging, so I'll be sure to be careful.

#1 Yes it does last a long time. Its a matte, drier formula lipstick so it adheres really well to the lips, and doesnt have any slip in the product where it would rub off easily. It even lasts through eating & drinking. It has a bit of a micro-sheen but it dries down & as the lipstick wears off it looks really matte. Its intensely pigmented, a little goes a long way. The down side is because its a dry formula it tends to show up lip lines. This did not feather at all, and stayed put within my natural lip line. Even if you have soft, exfoliated lips, this gets in the creases as it wears off. I def recommend using a lipgloss or product on top. The color is like an old school 1950s bombshell light peachy/coral with some pink undertones. It looks like a nude/pink your lips but better shade in the tube, but its more of the color I described on your actual lips, and is surpsingly very vivid. For the price, I think it was $2.99 or $1.99 def worth a try. This was one of the more natural colors in the collection. This would be a great product to use in place of lip stain. As your gloss etc wears off this color would last underneath. I would buy this again. It lasted for hours, & I used the tiniest amount,so these things will last forever.

It's a $2.99 lipstick. If the name was on the package, we'd all pay a little extra for it. It costs less to label them with numbers. The name is on the outer plastic, and says "Just Peachy". I don't like that some of them fall out of the tube, but the texture is so matte that at least it can be put back on the tube and doesn't make a mess. I've had my lipstick tubes knicked a little because they aren't completely inside the tube. It really doesn't bother me. No one is going to pay attention to my lipstick unless it's on my lips. I love this matte shade of peach. It is absolutely peach on my lips. Full coverage matte. I press my lips together after applying it to even out the lipstick. Applying any more just makes it really thick on your lips. I have 3 other shades, but so far this is my favorite. A perfect Summer lipstick.

this is great lipstick for it's price. on my lip this is more natural looking peach with nude undertone. it's my everyday lipstick since i bought it. i also like the think pink, but this is more suitable for my yellow skin-tone. i like it b/c it's shimmer free and matte as it says. only thing i don't like about is the packaging b/c my lipstick fell from it's packaging.

If there was a rating category for lipsticks priced at three dollars or less, I give W'N'W's lipsticks the highest possible rating in that category. Actually, I think W'N'W might outperform some ds brand lipsticks priced at two to three times the price of W'N'W lipsticks. Does W'N'W outperform the really stellar high end lipstick brands, i.e. Lipstick Queen, Julie Hewett, some of the MACs and Chanels? No. But at the same time, I have deep respect for this brand it terms of what it delivers.
Cool, fair types like me can often have problems with lipsticks in peachy ranges--can be too pale or too orangey. So, it's really impressive that they have a do-able peach shade given my skin tone. I find if I put on a little clear or clear pink gloss on top of this, just a bit in the center of my lips, it keeps the shade from being too pale on me. Also, I've found that I've had promising results when I've applied a layer of Just Peachy and then added a layer of a different shade of a Mega Matte--I think a person could get some pretty colors playing around adding a layer of a less pale pink or a red to this shade. I've heard some people find Mega Matte a little on the dry side. I haven't had such a problem, but any time I'm not wearing lipstick, be it awake or asleep, I'm pretty much wearing a moisturizing lip balm. (Only time I'm not is when I'm showering.) So, my lips are kept in pretty good condition for a matte.
The following is why I'm taking off two lippies. I accidentally dropped my tube--it wasn't a long or hard drop. All the same, the lipstick became separated from the holder. I was able to put it back in the holder and the place where I keep this lipstick in my purse guarantees it won't get jostled around in my purse and come out of the holder again--but I could see the less secure packaging being problematic for others. Also, I've found it's very easy for the lipstick to smear on the topper when I'm putting on the topper after use. (I don't like wasting a single smidge of lipstick.) Last thing, while I've found this lipstick does last a long time on my lips, there's a certain amount of transfer whenever I have something to drink or anything touches my lips--including being kissed by my husband. (With a Lipstick Queen Sinner, there's not a bit of transfer once the lipstick sets. The only thing that moves my LQ Sinners are eating things with oil in them, which is entirely understandable.) While I still keep a fair amount on my lips, even when there's a transfer, each time there's a transfer, it's shortening the time I have left with each application. To be fair, even with the bit of fade induced by transfer, the look of the lipstick is still quite pretty. There are two big reasons women wear mattes: they like the heavily pigmented look and they like the fact they don't have re-apply as frequently as with a sheer. So, that's why I'm being so nitpicking, had to acknowledge the transfer issue when it's a matte. I would still buy this shade and other Mega Mattes again, but just wanted other women to be prepared for a bit of transfer when drinking or kissing. But, at the same time, I'm not truly bothered that a matte lipstick that I only paid two dollars for has a bit of transfer.
Update: I decided to change the would you buy this product again category to a NO. While better than a lot of peachy shades out there, it's just too pale for my skin tone, even more so as cold weather approaches.

The only other matte lipstick I tried was Revlon (Nude Attitude... not good for me!) but I like this stuff way more. It's cheaper and it looks better on my pale, cool-toned skin. I've been applying lip balm, lining my lips, and then dabbing this on with my finger. I've tried it by itself and with gloss over it. It's so pretty! Next I definitely want to try it as a creme blush!

Aside from the annoying packaging (yes, I smudged a bit of the product on the cap several times already) I really love this lipstick. The color payoff is amazing - completely opaque. Just peachy looks great on me, especially when paired with dramatic or smoky eyes. It does tend to be a bit drying (like all matte lipsticks I tried so far) so smooth and properly exfoliated lips are a must.

Before I give my review of the actual product color, I have to agree that the packaging is not the best. If you can deal with the lipstick not retracting all the way down and occasionally coming off the dispenser, then definitely try this color. I have to say this color is GORGEOUS! I absolutely love the matte peach look and this color delivers. If you are looking for a dupe to the recently released peachy matte shades by Chanel, try this one first. I apply a lipbalm before I put this lipstick on so it will feel a bit creamier to me. Yes, you have to deal with crappy packaging, but for the price ($2.99 at my local Kmart), you can't beat this awesome Spring color.
***Update: Still love this as a lipcolor, but I've also begun using this as a creme blush and I love it! I actually just take some with my finger and dot it on my apples and then blend out with a makeup sponge. Today I have it on my cheeks and lips, and have gotten several compliments that I'm glowing!

I was so excited to see the new Wet n Wild display at my local walmart today! I picked up two of these lipsticks and for the price they really are not bad. They're truly matte, the pigmentation is good, and the shades are lovely. Just Peachy is more on the pink side than peach on my lips (which are very pigmented) but very pretty nonetheless. The other shade I have, "Think Pink" is absolutely gorgeous!
I wear lip balm beneath it but I think lipliner would also be a good idea, as the formula is on the creamy side and kind of slips around on my lips due to the balm. The packaging is super cute and I haven't had any problems with it, except I agree with the previous reviewer about the shape of the lipstick itself. It is a large, round cylinder which makes it difficult to apply accurately. I am thinking of getting more of these and eyeing the red shades in this line in particular.

I am all over matte lipsticks right now, so I jumped on WnW's newest Mega Matte lipsticks. With 903C, I like the product, hate (and I mean despise, loathe, abhor, you name it, every other synonym in the thesaurus) the packaging. The shade name is Just Peachy--not that you're really going to remember that, because it's on the shrink wrap, but not the actual package. In the store it looked pink, which is probably why I got it in the first place; I'm NW10ish, so I don't usually do the peach thing. Swatched, and on my lips, it's still on the pink side of medium peach. It's not like Revlon Just Enough Buff or NYX Orange Soda or other lipsticks that I consider *really* peach.
I really like the formula. It is not really a true matte; it's more of a satiny demimatte, so it's a bit less drying and more forgiving on lips. It is very, very highly pigmented, which I love. (My view is always "go opaque or go home," but I'm sure you could sheer it out if you wanted by applying it with your brush or with a finger.) I hate the shape of the lipstick because it's too round to really get into the points of my lip, so I use a lip brush with it anyway. The wear is really nice once it "sets" and becomes less wet and sticky.
And now for the infamous packaging. A) The lipstick bullet falls out. HATE that! B) The lipstick doesn't retract all the way and so it gets nicked a lot, messing up the lipstick and the clear plastic cap. HATE that! C) The name isn't on the packaging. HATE that!
I really am having trouble dealing with the packaging and the shape of the lipstick itself, but I may try more colors because I do like the formula.
ETA: Tried. The formula doesn't make the packaging (cheap and breaks all the time) worth it.
