It is a 4 hour long wearing lip color that leaves a semi-matte, creme finish in one stroke. This is the very definition of  this specific lipstick brand. What more can I say…IT’S TRUE! This is actually my second favorite everyday lipstick brand! It definitely doesn’t make my lips dry. Every application shows full-velvety color. It doesn’t cake, feather or bleed. (

Before, the Wet n Wild brand was only sold in the US, but recently the brand itself has landed to the Philippines. Thank goodness for that, because it’s the only brand that offers “My” everyday lipstick shade. I tend to mix different lipstick shades/brand to get my favorite light-peachy-pink-nude shade, but now I don’t have to because of the pretty shades that are available for this specific lipstick product.

The Mega Last Lip Color sells for Php 299 on all Department Stores. Affordable and quality-wise! Every stroke gives out a full-color finish and it lasts for hours. There are 20 shades available for this product and as of now I am addicted to the shades 901B – Think Pink and  903C – Just Peachy.


903C – Just Peachy

Just Peachy

A nude-peachy pink shade. What can I say,  I’m a nude color addict. This one shows a little pop of the peach color without betraying its original nude shade. This one’s what i use often nowadays.

Go to your nearest mall and try out a few shades.

For more colors, visit the Wet n Wild official website.




This brand started my lipstick-craze phase. Why? Because you can get as many from the 144 available shades for a dime each tube! Okay, I’m exaggerating. One tube can cost you USD 4.oo or  Php 180.oo (Php44=$1). Still cheap! (And I got mine for Php 160 from a multiply seller! haha!) And with the wide array of choices for Full-color and Frost shades, expect that you will have a panic-buying experience!

Nyx Round Lipsticks are highly pigmented.

Expect a full-color effect on all shades.

Creamy-feel on every application.

Very affordable. (Mass Brand – U.S.)

Satisfactory Scent (but fades away after application.)

It’s the type of brand in which you can experiment with different colors. Be Playful with the cutesy-cutesy colors, Natural with the nude and neutral shades, Flirty with the striking vivid colors, Seductive with bloody reds or Glam with the Frosty-Diva-Like shades! So either you’re a sugar, spice or everything that’s nice, NYX Round Lipsticks can offer you the shades that can brighten up every ladies’ asset; Smile!


First NYX Round Lipstick Review:



(Left-Right) Frappucino, Fig


Natural Light: Frap and Fig

With Flash: Frap and Fig

These are the very first shades that I have purchased. I actually got these from a multiply store. This specific brand is mainly circulated in the U.S. but now there are many online sellers that offer Worldwide shipping. You can even find a couple of sellers in multiply or facebook that sell this brand.

So I got the FRAPPUCINO and FIG. The former’s more of a nude-pink color while the latter shows a deep pink color.





I actually first encountered this shade when my sister had her make-up done for her prom by a professional artist. She wanted a soft pink-natural shade so the artist used the NYX RL FRAPPUCINO shade. I fell in love with this one that’s why I got one for my own use.

When you look at the product at first sight, you might see it as a browny shade, but no. It is actually a nude shade meets red brick with a hint of pink. It’s a good lipstick shade if you’re aiming for a natural look.





This shade reminds me of  Pink-Plastic-Barbie-Bubblegum. It has a deep-pink shade that looks soft at the same time. This one’s sooo girly! CUTE! This shade is a 4/5 star if you’re aiming for a Barbie Pink look.





For more shades, you can check out the official NYX website:





NYX Lip Lacquer Pot is a portable lipgloss in a cute glass-like container. This one sells for USD 5.50 or Php 242.00 ($44 – Php1). Sadly I got it for Php 300. Still not bad, since it’s not really available in the Philippines.



Lip Lacquer Pot

I got the Georgia Peach Color for my first ever NYX LIP LACQUER POT. It’s actually a pretty-okay gloss if you want a full color nude lip gloss for a Smokey-eye look. This one’s not really that bad considering the cheap cost and it’s full-color effect.

Nude Full-color Gloss

The thing is, you have to use a lip brush. Using your fingers would be messy. I would rate this one 2.75/5. The product is okay and usable but not highly-recommended.





This perfect clear gloss is hard to find nowadays since this product’s already phased out, plus I’ve already hoarded it from 4 different Beauty Bar Branches here in Manila hahahaha!


POUT Pout Plump Gloss

(It looks white because of the flash but the actual tube is color pink)

Let me give you a brief background of the brand. For those who don’t know; “Pout” was a famous UK cosmetic brand that was known for its dainty and fun girl-y packagings. The company however faced a major re-branding and re-marketing strategy after it was acquired by a U.S. company, not so long after its filing of bankruptcy. (As of now, the brand is already known as “Pout Cosmetics.”) Suffice to say that the Pout products was no longer in circulation that time.  Beauty Bar is the only store that sells this brand in the Philippines and since late 2009 they have faced out the brand and all its products.

Hoarded Bunch =p

I was fortunate enough to find out about the Clearance Sale on this specific Pout product.  This particular lip gloss sells for Php 1,300.00. Yes its pretty pricey, but I tell you, this product is amazing! However, due to its “phasing-out phase,” I was able to get 7 units of this for only Php 300 each! Thank goodness! What a steal! I KNOW ! ! Okay so currently, I have 5 unopened tubes of the Pout Plump Gloss and a half-full tube, which i am currently using.

Pretty Pink Packaging

Now you might be wondering why on earth would I stock-up on clear lip glosses? I’ve actually let my friends try the lip gloss and they all LOVED it! I even gave one to my friend as a birthday gift.

Pretty Packaging

Okay so here goes:

First; It TASTES (not just smells) like peppermint.  A person next to you can smell it up to 2 feet away and its amazingly YUMMY! You will smell as if you just brushed your teeth.

Second; It has a strong cooling effect on your lips. You will actually feel a cooling sensation on your lips that lasts for a long while, say 20-30 minutes?

Third; It has plumping effect with the high glossy shine that it promises.

And Fourth; You can  use it at all times! Plain or pair it up with any lipstick color!

Plus of course, the packaging is just awfully CUTE!

Hang out with me and maybe I’ll let you try it! 😀


FYI: I am not planning on disposing any of my remaining stocks for this product. Yes. It’s all mine! hahahaha! :p
