Wet n Wild Megalast Don't Blink Pink Lipstick - Review, Photos,Swatches

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in Don't Blink Pink is a medium fuchsia pink shade with blue undertones. It's not too bright but definitely not understated. I believe it's the kind of bright pink that will suit most if not all skin tones. I'm comparing it to my NARS Carthage. :)

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in Don't Blink Pink








Compared to NARS Carthage



Shade: on the tube, Carthage looks a touch darker. That's probably because of the difference in finish; Carthage has a pure matte finish, while Don't Blink Pink is in semi-matte. But looking at the swatches, they look pretty close (if not the same) to me.

Opacity: Don't Blink Pink is more opaque. It's creamier so it's much easier to achieve an opaque finish. Carthage needs a little balm and more swipes to get that full opacity I prefer.

Formula: Don't Blink Pink is more comfortable to wear because it won't dry out your lips. It's creamy with a slight hint of sheen, making your lips look fuller and healthier. As much as I love matte formulas, NARS' pure matte formula is too much for me.

Longevity: given that Carthage is in pure matte, it tends to last longer than Don't Blink Pink. The former also doesn't transfer as much as the latter.

Packaging: Carthage obviously wins this one. The sleek and slim packaging of NARS Pure Matte lipsticks is very sophisticated compared to Wet n Wild's.

Scent / taste: They're pretty even on this category since they don't have a distinct smell or taste. 

Left swatch: Don't Blink Pink, Right swatch: Carthage
Upper lip: Don't Blink Pink
Lower lip: Carthage


To sum it all up: Wet n Wild Don't Blink Pink is a great dupe for NARS Carthage. Don't Blink Pink is more comfortable to wear, won't dry out your lips and won't break your budget. But if you really want matte long wearing lipstick and you have the money, then NARS Carthage is for you.


VERDICT:

  I will definitely repurchase!
