Review & Swatches: Wet n Wild Megaslicks Balm Stains in A Stiff Pink, Lady and the Vamp, and Pinky Promise


Wet n Wild has joined the ranks of chubby lip pencils with their Spring 2014 Megaslicks Balm Stain launch. Labeled simply as "moisturizing lip color", there is no promise of any certain pigmentation or lasting power - I had to put them to the test! 

While there are 6 shades within the line so far, I could only find 3:

A Stiff Pink: Bright bubblegum pink
Lady and the Vamp: Deep wine-stained berry
Pinky Promise: A light pink-leaning nude

All of them have a balmy finish, and all of them shocked me with their pigmentation and longevity. A Stiff Pink - my favorite shade in the bunch - lasted through morning coffee and a snack, only to start wearing away in the center of my lips after lunch! Luckily the packaging allows for easy reapplication. Speaking of, the packaging for these pencils are some of the only from the drugstore I've used that have a cap that securely snaps on. I've had caps fall off of some of my jumbo lip pencils in my purse, and it's not fun to clean up - and sometimes you can't! With these, you know exactly when your pencil is closed, ensuring it won't pop open on the go and ruin your favorite purse. 

The only think I didn't notice with these lip color is a moisturizing quality. While they didn't dry my lips out like some stains can, I don't think I would call them "moisturizing lip color". That could also be my dry winter lips talking, but is something I wanted to note nonetheless!

While some are finding these in new release displays, I found mine along with the permanent products in their end cap display at CVS, so check both places. They retail for $2.99 ($1.99 if you can find them with $1.00 off coupons attached), and I think they are totally worth it if you like the look of these pigmented balm stains. They are easy matches for the rest of the drugstore chubby pencils on the market now, and about a fraction of the price. If only they would release more shades!

Have you seen these balm stains around yet?
