I bought this Wet n Wild Megaslicks Lip Gloss being on holiday when I realized that I’d like to wear a lip gloss, though I hadn't had any with me at that time.
I solved my problem by buying this one, which was no more than €2. Unfortunately, the purchase wasn’t successful.
• Size - 5ml
• Shelf life: 24 months of opening
It looks simple and frills-free. This is logical, given the price tag.
But it’s nice to hold that tube in my hands. Nothing bad happened with the lettering on the tube within a month, so I won’t scald the packaging. It’s just a regular lip gloss for an affordable price.
It’s small and common for lip glosses. It’s soft and I love how gliding it is over my lips. But it takes out the product terribly: even three dips aren’t enough to take a sufficient amount. That's why I have to dip again and again. That freaks me out.
The texture of the Wet n Wild Megaslicks is rather pleasant: gel-like and not too thick. It’s also a tad oily, though not gooey or tacky.
The consistency is thick. I’d say that the texture is lightweight: I love such lip glosses because they are usually very difficult to detect on the lips. In the tube, the formula seems transparent and a tad airy.
The smell is nice, not chasing. It’s sweet. It doesn’t stay on my lips and vanishes right after application.
It isn’t the widest in the world, I recollect there are 7 or 8 shades in the line-up. As for me, I didn’t have a choice at all. There was only this one available at that store, no coral or pink shades.

E5463 Crushed Grapes
I have mine in the shade Е5452 Sweet Glaze - a regular transparent lip gloss with a hint of pink undertone. It’s totally sheer on my lips.
If only I could forget about this terrible applicator, I’d say that there’s nothing difficult about its application. The product doesn’t budge, streak and always applies smoothly. The only gripe is that I have to dip again and again in the tube. In all other respects, everything is nice here.
- The product in my makeup:
The main disadvantage of this Wet n Wild Megaslicks Lip Gloss is that it doesn’t have any glossy finish. The glow is so delicate that I struggle to see it.
It looks faded on my lips, as though I applied a chapstick. Let’s be honest, there are many more colored chapsticks than this lip gloss. It looks as though my lips are nude if you look from a distance. No visual volume, you see. Boring.
The product sinks in within 30-40 minutes, which means pathetic staying power. And yeah, forget about meals with this Mega Sleeks lip gloss on.
Still, I want to highlight some positive sides:
1) The product isn’t tacky at all;
2) I don’t detect it on my lips;
3) It doesn’t feather with a white film on my lips (it just doesn’t have enough time to do it);
4) it doesn’t define flaking skin and lip texture.
The product isn’t skin-friendly. It’s not a chapstick to moisturize or nurture my lips. It doesn’t protect them from chapping either: this is all because of its quick sinking in.
But I appreciate that Wet n Wild Megaslicks Lip Gloss doesn’t dry out my lips.
Actually, I’d like to assess it with 3 stars if only it had a good applicator. After all, it doesn’t have some serious drawbacks, which are so common for lip glosses - it isn’t tacky, for instance. But in all other aspects, I don’t like it:
- the color selection is poor here
- it doesn’t look interesting on my lips
- the glossy finish is pathetic and barely detectable
- no staying power
- the applicator is an epic fail
However, it’ll be fair to mention the advantages as well:
- the formula isn’t tacky
- I don’t feel it on my lips
- it doesn’t dry out or damage my lips
In the end, I assess it with 2 stars. I don’t recommend it. I’d like to have a beautiful lip gloss, despite it being tacky. But here the glossy shine is pathetic. Even the street-end brands nowadays offer much better lip glosses, which still appear well on the lips.
Thanks for your attention!
