Once I purchased a few lipsticks for testing, among which was the famous Mega Last Lip Color that broke the Internet once.
Does it live up to the hype? Let’s figure that out.
Price: about $2
The packaging looks quite pretty, but as soon as you take it in your hands, you see how miserable it is! I mean it!
The package is so flimsy and loose that it seems that it will break apart any minute!
When I swiveled the lipstick a little more than usual, the bullet simply broke and fell off! I was a little bit shocked.
Yeah, I do realize that this lipstick is low-end, but it doesn’t actually mean that it shouldn’t be firm in place.
Well, back to the bullet. I had to fix it somehow and decided to just place it back and not to swivel the product too much. However, I’m now planning to melt it.
Also, the reviewers complained about the lipstick smearing the cap when opening and closing.
To avoid empty talk, I’m attaching a pictures of the product after 2 applications:
And it looks even worse at the moment.
More than that, the shape of the bullet is not convenient for me. I always apply lipsticks without any tools and brushes, but I can’t use this lipstick this way. Therefore I don’t use it frequently.
The color range is just awesome here and I would gladly pick up at least the half of it. I purchased the controversial E916D Ravin' Rasin shade. It’s a cool dark-violet shade.
The texture and wear time:
Some of the reviews compared the texture with a playdough, because it was not very malleable. However, it is not that bad in reality. Yes, it’s a tad thicker than most matte lippies, but it is still workable.
The payoff is amazing. In terms of the finish, I was a little bit surprised. It wasn’t really matte, but satin-matte.
The wear time is nothing fantastic, it’s just OK. The lipstick lasts 3-4 hours without eating and requires a touch-up after a meal.
It is easy to take off with any makeup remover.
I’m on the fence about this product. The quality is alright, but it’s actually pain in the butt to use.
I recommend it only for those who are on the lookout for affordable semi-matte lipsticks and not afraid of disfiguring packages and unexpected circumstances.
I appreciate your attention! Have a nice day!
