Review and swatches: Wet n wild Mega Last lip colour in the shade 'Rose bud' no.904B

Hey “BD beauties”!

I recently showed a lovely rosy shade of lipstick by wet n wild called rose bud (904B) which is from the famous matte line in my 5 lipstick shades I love tag which you can read HERE. I have to say this shade is my most favourite lipstick at the moment in every way I can describe a good lipstick.

So today’s review is of the Wet n wild matte lipstick in the shade rose bud ($2.75). This is the perfect rosy shade for medium to dark complexions. The formulation of these lipsticks are a tad it dry but nothing too crazy making them unbearable. I have allot of great things to say about this so read on to know more!

$2.75 for 3.3g of product

What does the brand say about this product?

Lips take center stage! This 4-hour, longwearing lip color leaves a semi-matte, crème finish in one stroke. Glides on easily with rich, velvety color that doesn't cake, feather, or bleed. Made with hydrating skin-care ingredients: Hyaluronic Microspheres provide extraordinary adhesion to lips, an exclusive polymer complex offers cushion-like feel and texture, and natural marine plant extracts Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamins A & E help smooth lips.

My experience with this product

The shade rose bud should be best described as a darker tone of a rosy shade more suitable for medium to darker complexions. You can however use it with sight dabbing motions to get a lighter colour payoff. The formulation of this lipstick is slightly on the drier side but a quick fix with lip balm underneath it will make it just fine. One thing I noticed because of the drier texture of the lipstick is that it has a staining effect on my lips and particularly with this shade; it leaves a lovely natural plumped up shade behind once it fades away.

Another thing I have to point out is that lipsticks with matte formulations are generally drier as opposed to ones with a glossy finish. The colour stays on for about a good 4 hours before it becomes patchy when I have to reapply but the patchiness isn’t crazy because it stains like I said before. One thing I hate about this lipstick is the packaging. It does look pretty and sleek but it doesn’t function right. I feel like the twisting part is flimsy and also the lipstick doesn’t twist in completely thus you might end up with the accident where you might stab the bullet with the lid. One more thing I do not like in the packaging category is that the name of the lipstick for example rose bud isn’t stated underneath the tube along with the numbers instead its printed on the plastic wrapping which you throw of as you unwrap the new tube which is annoying!

I do like the fact that you can see the shade through the lid which is so much easy when you have a lot of lipsticks to choose through. I recommend this particular shade for an everyday colour but better.

Overall verdict

If not for the packaging I love the lipstick itself! It’s one of those lines like the Maybelline colorsensational where I want to try more shades! Matte lipsticks are just so pretty for day and night. Although you might need a little bit of lip balm before application, it works phenomenal otherwise. The lasting power and the fact that it stains makes this a winning makeup product in my books!


Have you tried these lipsticks?
