Edit: Sadly, I've discovered that the MegaLast formula gives me deep, painful, huge lip cystic acne. It clogs my lip pores somehow or I'm allergic to an ingredient. This is rare, I'm sure, so I'm only docking one lippy. I still recommend you try the formula, but buy one shade and test it WELL for reactions. I bought nearly the whole collection before I made the connection.
Clearly I won't be rebuying. :(
Original Review: Wow. I own a lot of MegaLasts but the formula on this lipstick! My tube went on so smooth and creamy right from the start. One of the best ML I own, creamy, richly pigmented, beautiful semi-matte finish.
The color is deeper than I expected, a bit deeper than a medium tone shade. This is a muted, warm rosy-red-brown that is a very modern looking shade.
Previous reviews have said this is close to MLBB - not on me though, it's too deep, too brown, and too red on me for that. MLBB for me tends to be a combination of pink and mauve with a touch of brown. It skirts vampy territory for me since I'm somewhat fair yellow-olive-peach (NC 15-20?)
The color actually looks very modern, the type of rosy terracotta lip you often seen featured on Instagram with liquid lipstick. I'm not a fan of LL personally. I normally wear clearer colors, so this will probably be a rich, fall shade for me.
Standard crappy WnW packaging - get a lipstick case so this doesn't spontaneously spring open in your bag - well worth it. Yes - you can nick your bullet since it sticks out, just be careful, it's possible to keep it intact.
I couldn't find this locally here in Canada and had to order it from Beauty Joint, but I'm glad I did. Fantastic formula and I hadn't yet have a shade like this in my collection. It's well worth picking up for the tiny price!
