Swatch/Review: Wet N Wild Megaslicks Balm Stains

One Megaslicks Stain coming right up!

Let's just get right into it, shall we?

Here are Wet n Wild's versions of the jumbo twistable lip pencils. I believe these were actually released before the NYC twistables. These claim to be a staining lip balm.

(L to R) 129 Nudist Colony, 125 Red-dy or Not, 126 Rico Mauve, 127 A Stiff Pink and 124 Lady and the Vamp
I believe there is one or two more shades in this range.

129 Nudist Colony - a skintone nude

127 A Stiff Pink - a bright cool pink

126 Rico Mauve - a pinky mauve

125 Red-dy or Not - a classic red

124 Lady and the Vamp - a plum

I didn't do any lip swatches with these because the staining power is no joke. And it'll be useless because the true color won't be seen.    

You can find these for $2.99 at your local drug store (Rite Aid, CVS or Walgreens) and if you're lucky, you can get these for $1.99 with $1/off peelies.

These lippies come in pencil/crayon twistable form and have a clear, plastic top. These tops are more secured than the NYC's because these actually will snap closed. The packaging for each is colored in the same color as the product (some are more true to color than others).

These babies are very buttery and glides on smoothly but because of it's buttery-ness, I feel like it can slide quite a bit (especially when rubbing your lips against eachother). These are also more sheer in pigmentation to me but they are very buildable (but keep in mind, the more you have on...the better chance it has of sliding around). They are very comfortable on the lips. These will leave behind a stain (not so much the nude though) once the shine wears off. I don't sense any scent in these pencils at all (or do I just have a bad nose? lol) 

 Have you tried this line? Which shade is your favorite? Leave me a comment below.
