Wet n Wild Megalast Pinkerbell Lipstick - Review, Photos, Swatches

I've read and heard a lot about some Wet n Wild lipsticks as dupe for MAC lipsticks. The most buzzed about one is Pinkerbell, a supposed dupe for Viva Glam Nicki. Is this true? Let's find out.

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in Pinkerbell is a light, a tad bright pink with yellow undertones. It's in a semi matte finish. The opacity is excellent; formula wise, this is at par with the quality of MAC lipsticks.

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in Pinkerbell








Compared to Viva Glam Nicki:




Shade: it's practically the same. Pinkerbell may look a little darker than Viva Glam Nicki, but that's only because of the difference in finish (VGN is satin so it has a little sheen to it, while Pinkerbell is semi matte). 

Opacity: they're pretty much the same. :)

Longevity: Given that Pinkerbell is in a semi matte finish, it has a slight leverage against Viva Glam Nicki (which is in satin finish).

Packaging: Viva Glam Nicki, all the way! Wet n Wild lipstick's packaging is a little problematic. I'm not a fan of plastic caps, and the rounded tip makes it a little hard to apply it especially on the corners of my  lips. It looks a little...cheap. :|

Price: hands down, Pinkerbell is more affordable. I can get at least 4 Pinkerbell for 1 Viva Glam Nicki.

But what did (or does) Viva Glam Nicki has that Pinkerbell doesn't? Advocacy. MAC donates 100% of sales of Viva Glam lipsticks to charity. :)


Upper lip: Viva Glam Nicki
Lower lip: Pinkerbell

To sum it all up: Yes, Pinkerbell is a dupe for Viva Glam Nicki. Which do I prefer? I really can't choose. I don't regret buying Viva Glam Nicki, but I'm really happy I have Pinkerbell too. For an addict like me, getting both is just right. If you're on the practical / sane side, get Pinkerbell.


VERDICT:

  I will definitely repurchase!

  10. That's it! I am going to buy this even though I am not a fan of the packaging. It looks really cheap. :(
    But the color is a stunner and I like how it's being referenced as the dupe of MAC Viva Glam Nicki! It's the color that I desperately wanted to have for my collection. *___*

    1. I hate the packaging, too! :( I guess they really perfected the formula and sacrificed pretty packaging so it'll still be affordable for us. Let me know what you think when you get yours! :) Thank you! <3
