MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick
MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick promises "a high-pigmented matte finish with some serious staying power", and it delivers! The thin, liquid texture applies smoothly and dries down to a budge-proof, matte finish that offers solid, rich color for hours. This fragrance-free lipstick offers outstanding performance for a fraction of the price of high-end competitors.
In terms of comfort, MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick isn't ultra-drying (like some liquid lipsticks which leave lips feeling parched), but it doesn't feel moisturizing, either—it falls somewhere in between.
The texture results in flake-free, non-pilling coverage that wears vividly for several hours before the color eventually begins to fade unevenly. Considering how transfer-resistant this lipstick is, we'd consider that a reasonable tradeoff.
Wet 'n Wild took a slightly different approach to the standard doe-foot applicator, giving theirs more of a curved L-shape. We found the angle was neither a help nor a hindrance—just a matter of personal preference.
The excellently crafted shade range offers a versatile mix of bold or soft and classic or trendy colors. Between the shades, the affordable price, and the excellent performance, MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick really is the cat's meow!

Wet 'n' Wild At-A-Glance
Strengths: Inexpensive, good tinted moisturizer with sunscreen; some attractive bronzing powders; mostly good eyeshadow and lipstick options.
Weaknesses: Unimpressive concealers; large assortment of average to poor eyelining products; the mascaras do little to impress; some lip products suffer from the inclusion of irritants; the makeup brushes.
Wet 'n' Wild is one of the few cosmetics companies around that prides itself on being extraordinarily cheap, although the prices have increased across the board since we last revisited this brand. But don't let its hokey name and pre-teen marketing tactics deter you, because there are some great options available, and the packaging has improved in almost every category. The best-performing products will seem like steals, while the less impressive to horrible products will quickly have you thinking, "you get what you pay for." It is not very often that a line offers such a procession of clear-cut winners and dismal losers, but once you know what to focus on, you won't get soaked by Wet 'n' Wild. This line is available in most major drugstores across the country, and, like most drugstore lines, does not offer testers. Interestingly, the selection of Wet 'n' Wild in Canadian drugstores tends to be better than what U.S. shoppers will find.
