Product Review: Wet N Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain Moisturizing Lip Colour in A Stiff Pink

Friday, April 10, 2015

    Early last year, chubby crayon-like lipstick/lip balm/ lip stain hit beauty bloggers by storm. I've seen my favorite beauty gurus reviewing their fave chubby lippies in crayon form from brand one after the other! From high-end to cost effective ones, these babies offer pretty shades and functions more than one. I can't contain my excitement when I saw this from Luxola's website and said to myself that finally I'll be able to get hold of my own crayon because the price of a drugstore brand like Wet N Wild is pretty cheap and affordable!

     Here's a review of Wet N Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain Moisturizing Lip Colour in A Stiff Pink. This product was sent to me by Luxola last February so my apologies if this is a very late review. I describe this lip balm/lipstick/lip gloss/lip stain as a cool toned pink. It's a bright pink that leaves a beautiful stain on my lips. If my memory serves me right, this shade can be a close dupe of one of my lipsticks, MAC Girl About Town (GAT) but this one is a tad ligther. I'll check and update this post just to be sure.

According to Wet N Wild's website:

     Now you can amp up your lips with one stick for a kissable pout in no time. To keep you pucker-perfect, these all NEW lip balm stains glide on smoothly while conditioning the lips. Enriched with Acai Palm Oil, this amazing formula forms a protective shield on the lips to prevent feathering. Complete with six great shades and continuous moisture, the formula leaves the lips with a unique minty, cooling sensation. No matter how long the kiss, this balm will last and last.

     Photo above shows the content of one crayon. Swatch on my forearm twice. It is very pigmented. Looks light inside crayon packaging but turns into a bright blue toned pink after application. The photo on the right shows the stain. It's a pain to remove, I've already placed my arm under running water and I've tried smudging it to remove but the stain is still there.

What I like:
  • The price is el cheapo compared to other chubby sticks in the market today.
  • The packaging is cute. It is a twist up crayon pencil that has a clear cap. The packaging's color is the same as the shade of the balm stain.
  • No need to sharpen.
  • There are 6 gorgeous shades to choose from.
  • It's a 4-in-1 product- a lip gloss, lip stain, lipstick and lip balm!
  • There's a unique minty, cool sensation upon application. 
  • It is very pigmented. Not for the faint of heart if  you apply it with a heavy hand.
  • It is easy to apply as it glides smoothly on my lips without tugging and pulling my lips.
  • Lasted 6 hours on my lips. 
  • Does not fade after eating or sipping my drink.
  • Does not fade unevenly as it leaves a beautiful stain on my lips.
  • There's a batch and manufacturing date printed on it.
What I don't like: 
  • The packaging is flimsy.
  • There's a semi- chemical scent.
  • It dries out my lips even if I apply my fave lip balm underneath.
  • It's a pain to remove even if I use my fave makeup remover.
Will I repurchase? Maybe yes and no. Yes because I want to try the remaining five shades. No because I think a bullet will last long. I'm the type who will empty the contents of a product first before trying or buying a new one if it becomes a fave or HG (holy grail). 

Recommendation:
     I give this product a 4.25/5 rating. I like that it's pigmented and easy to use plus it's affordable but it dries out my lips and I find it hard to remove even if I use my favorite makeup remover. So if your lips are prone to drying, use a heavy duty lip balm underneath this balm stain. The minty and cooling sensation is unique and fun! I recommend this balm stain to budget conscious individuals and to students too who wants to try a good drugstore brand.

Sample Room Products for April + Another Major Haul :)

Friday, May 02, 2014

     I really love Sample Room! Every time they replenish their stocks, the samples mostly full-sized samples are very promising and interesting. I already made a review of Vidal Sassoon Premium Color Care Series (shampoo and conditioner) and I think this range will be complete with the treatment. So when I accumulated again the points that I used last March after reviewing the products, I immediately grabbed a sample of the hair treatment. I also availed the Celeteque Bacne Spray to test it with hubby's bacne. I swear by Celeteque products. They're from Unilab- one of my tried and tested brand for skin care, health and wellness. To complete my April Sample Room Haul, I availed the Hygienix hand sanitizer. Being an OC mom, I always make sure that my hands and Kenzo's hands are always clean and germ free. I also purchased some beauty essentials and skin care products from different brands. Click CONTINUE READING to see more :)
