Left swatch-One sweep of the product
Right swatch-Buildup of product.
I recently discovered MUA cosmetics on my search to find a pigmented red lipstick that didn't break the bank. I started off not being able to find a decent one for under £10 and I really didn't want to spend so much on something that I could easily forget about or lose. I went to my local Superdrug and after failing to find a lipstick worth the money I found-shoved into a corner- MUA cosmetics. At first I was dubious because of the low price-a measly £1 per lipstick then I swatched the product and was a-mazed. It was so pigmented!
Both shades have a wonderful creamy formula that keep lips moisturized yet not sticky so that your hair doesn't get stuck in it when there is wind-which is a pain in the you-know-what. They also have incredibly long wear,a huge bonus as I find the cheaper lipsticks need constant re-application throughout the day, and therefore end up less value because so much product is constantly being used up.
Shade 16-Nectar was a an impulse buy. Orange lipstick is all the rage this summer and again the price of the product made me buy it. I love it. Its the perfect orange colour for me. Although the initial first sweep isn't as pigmented as the build up. It is a build-able colour all the same. I can choose whether to have a coral lip or a more orange lip depending on how adventurous I feel.
Pros: Shade 13 is in my opinion the perfect red lipstick. Its cheap, pigmented and holds its colour for a long time-the swatches don't actually justify how pigmented they are. I love how versatile Shade 16 is giving me both a coral lip or an orange lip. Also there is a detachable bottom with coloured lip gloss which I have shown in the pictures. Not many people know this-in fact this information isn't even available in the description of the Lipsticks
Cons: The packaging is a bit inconsistent. One of the lids is loose while the other is tight. I have to be careful so that when I take the lid off it doesn't clip the top of the lipstick. Another thing that bothers me are the names of the shades. Numbers are easily forgettable. If I tell anyone what colour I'm wearing I forget which number they are and have to look at the product to see.
Overall I love these and for £1 you can't go wrong!
Do you have any of the MUA range? What do you think about it?
