I like this lip gloss it has a great shine and its very cheap. I also love how the bottles are transparent and you can see the colour you like. I would totally recommend this for people who like shine.
I wear lip gloss a bit more for the shine and keeping my lips from getting too dry as opposed to color, and since I ran out of my favorite Lip Smackers Strawberry lip gloss, I decided to get some more. I couldn't find that same kind at CVS, so I went with Wet N Wild Mega Slicks. I know by now to not expect incredible quality from this brand, but the price was relatively low and I was willing to give it a shot.
So I tried the clear one called Crystal Clair (561A) or something like that. I prefer liquid glosses with little wand applicators, so this brand stood out to me. It's got a nice scent, but you don't get much when you dip the wand in the bottle and I found I had to apply several coats before my lips stopped feeling tacky and started looking actually shiny.
However, this stuff dries out quickly. I can deal with that, but I was expecting something calling itself "Mega Slicks" to have a bit more gloss going on. Due to the shade I chose, I can't say how vibrant the color is. Would I buy this again? Probably not. Instead, I would recommend the liquid Lip Smackers gloss or Jordana's Lip Out Loud, both of which run about $2-$3 each (I don't think Lip Smackers has tinted glosses, but Jordana does and they are lovely).
As others have said, if you're looking for a color to test out, sure, give these a try. It won't set you back too much if you hate it.
In my mind, wet n wild is part of the walmart family brand of products. I know that's not really the case, but I've only ever seen these products sold in walmart, so I don't have high expectations for their products. I bought this product because I wanted to try a new lip color but didn't want to shell out more than $3 for something that might not work for me. So usually I turn to dirt cheap brands, like wet n wild, to use as a 'tester' by finding a color that matches something that costs a bit more.
I got a cherry colored lip gloss (sorry, I forgot the name but the bottom of it says 569A if that means anything) and it goes on with lots of shine and a tiny hint of color, which I felt looked perfect for my light-medium with yellow undertones skin. I usually like doe foot applicators, but for some reason wet n wild applicators seemed to give my lips a slight 'rug burn'. Perhaps it doesn't pick up enough product to properly lubricate the applicator, or maybe the applicator fibers are too coarse, I'm not sure. I personally did not have a problem with the scent or the taste, honestly I couldn't taste anything and the smell was just sweet and sugary.
The packaging is sturdy, however the reflective printing on the tube will inevitably chip off the longer you toss it around in your bag.
Bottom line, if you're looking for a super basic lip gloss, or want to experiment with colors or just need a cheap little pick-me-up, this lip gloss is pretty worth it.
This review is for Wet n wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss. I got two shades of this lip gloss, one is Strawberry Ice and the other is Magenta Flash.
The packaging is pretty basic, it comes in a tube with a soft wand applicator. For some reason, this is my favorite way to apply lip gloss, so I really like that about this lip gloss. When you take the wand out of the tube it comes out with a good enough amount of product. When you apply it, the wand tip feels really soft on my lips and it glides right on.
If you look at the product from the outside of the tube the colors look pretty neat. Strawberry Ice is a very light baby pink, and Magenta Flash is a more intense and strong shade of pink (magenta?). However, when you apply this lip gloss, there’s not much you can do to tell the difference between them. Especially after ten minutes… it makes no difference which you put on; the hint of color looks the same.
So, for a lipgloss, this isn’t a very glossy product. When you first apply it, it looks fairly glossy and cute. I actually like how it looks after you have just applied it, because it gives a very subtle gloss with a hint of color. But as the day proceeds, it wears away. About ten minutes after application there’s not much color left, and about after an hour, there’s basically no gloss left. So if you’re only wearing this product on your lips, you’ll need constant reapplication.
In an apparent attempt for a fruity scent / taste… this product smells and tastes bad. The smell is not that terrible, but after its on your lips, the smell combined with the taste is excessively chemical-like and just… well, not something I want to have on my lips.
The product description for this lip gloss mentiones it has “Vitamins A and E help protect your lips from the drying effects of sun and environment”. So even though I don’t really notice these things when I wear the product, I guess it’s always a plus.
As far as I know, this isn’t a lip-plumping gloss (you know, those that trigger a tiny allergic reaction a plump up your lips)… but! when I wear this MegaSlicks lip gloss I get this strange, tingly, itch on my lips that I’m pretty sure it’s not supposed to be there. This lip gloss, how ever, does not plump my lips or make them look fuller in any way, it just causes this really annoying, numbing tingle.
I still sometimes use this lipgloss regardless of the numbing / tingling / itch and the bad smell and taste. But after these tubes I have are over, I’m not purchasing this buying again.
