I've been fighting with the colour in this photo for longer than I'd like to admit. But I need to tell you about Wet n Wild Mega Last Back to the Fuchsia liquid lip colour, so this will have to do. Just know that the shade is more electric than it appears here. And know that Wet n Wild is rolling out all its new packaging and its Spring 2014 lineup in Canada near the end of this month.

Most important about Wet n Wild Mega Last Back to the Fuchsia is that it's a really good cheek stain. You need only the tiniest dab to blend into skin, and the colour will stay all day. Oily skin will love it.

When it comes to lips, Wet n Wild Mega Last Back to the Fuchsia ($3.99 at mass retailers) is not for you if you suffer from chronic dryness. Nicely hydrated smooth lips can handle it. Mine can, for most of the day.
how to apply wet n wild mega last liquid lip color
- Do not make the mistake of slapping this on like a regular gloss. Mega Last Liquid Lip Color requires more care, like those longwear lip glosses from the past. In fact, that's probably what this formula is.
- After you pull the wand out, scrape the applicator against the tube opening so the excess slips back in. See what's on the wand in the second product photo? A little goes a long way. A lot makes a mess.
- Work precisely in long smooth single strokes to cover the lips without going over spots more than once. You have a small window in which to get the edges precise.
If you're wondering why Wet n Wild Mega Last Back to the Fuchsia is worth the trouble, first there's the price: just $3.99. Then there are the compliments. This shade gets noticed, and in a good way. And because I'm in my 40s, I'm tagging this as appropriate for 40+ beauty. So there.
Then there's this. The coffee-cup test. And that cup has been drained. There is the barest bit of colour transfer -- click on the image to look closely.
Here's what Wet n Wild Mega Last Back to the Fuchsia looks like after two of those cups of coffee, breakfast (a fritata and asparagus), and a Starbucks grande. Most of the missing colour came off on that Starbucks plastic lid (I should have photographed it). Makeup remover got the rest off.
Really, Wet n Wild Megalast Back to the Fuchsia, or any other rosy shade, is a terrific formula for cheeks. If you can handle a bit of lip dryness, then it's great for your weekly coffee klatch with your girlfriends, or for any other occasion in which lip colour transfer is undesireable.
Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Color comes in 13 shades from nude to fuchsia to red to wine. Look for Wet n Wild's new packaging and Spring launches in Canada at the end of February.
