I have absolutely fallen in love with the Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks! They're intensely pigmented, creamy, and somewhat long wearing. However, the $22 price tag isn't so nice for someone on a budget. These lipsticks can be purchased at urbandecay.com, Ulta, and Sephora.
Last week I picked up the Wet n Wild MegaLast lipstick in "Smokin Hot Pink". These lipsticks retail for ONLY $1.99 at Walmart, Walgreens, and other select mass retailers. This shade is an almost exact color dupe for the Urban Decay Revolution lipstick in "Catfight".
Both shades are a bright medium fuchsia pink that is just gorgeous! It's the perfect color if you're looking for a berry shade for Fall or Winter but don't want an intensely dark color.
These lipsticks do differ in finishes. The Wet n Wild is more opaque and has a matte finish, but if you wear a lip balm underneath, it looks like a satin natural finish. The Urban Decay lipstick is creamier but less opaque.
The packaging is an obvious difference as well. The Urban Decay packaging is absolutely gorgeous with a metallic gunmetal tube, while the Wet n Wild is cheap plastic and can be messy.
If you love a pink lip and love the Urban Decay lipstick in "Catfight", maybe give this Wet n Wild lipstick a shot! For a $20 savings, why not!!! The Wet n Wild MegaLast Lipsticks are one of my favorite lipstick formulas.
Here is a swatch comparison of the two. As you can see, the colors are almost identical, the only difference is that the Urban Decay lipstick has a little more intensity and glossier finish. But with a lip balm underneath, the finishes becomes almost identical.
