Review: MUA lipsticks

Friday, February 22, 2013

First I would like to tell you that I'm changing my schedule of posting; I'll post on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays. 
And now let's get down to the business. Sally asked me if I could do a review on the MUA lipsticks and because I had some technical difficulties with my other, planned post, I decided that I'm going to do this one today.

As I already shown you, I have five of them; Nr.2, nr. 3, nr. 10, nr. 11 and nr. 15 (Juicy). They retail for £ 1 which is around 1,15; a total bargain. There are 16 shades available on the MUA website.

 L to R: 10, 11, 2, 15 and 3

L to R: 15, 11, 10, 3 and 2

In my opinion the packaging is quite nice and I really like the fact that  the lipsticks have more product in the small ''jar'' in the bottom. It's very convenient if you want to apply your lipstick with a brush and you can easily see what colour the lipstick is. 
I don't remember the names of lipsticks and I can't connect the name to the colour, so I prefer that you can see the colour of the lipsticks.

What they say: Our amazing lipsticks come in 16 shades from red to pink and nude and are packed full of pigmentation. With just one swipe you'll have fantastic colour pay off resulting in gorgeous lips!

I must agree that the pigmentation is quite impressive. The lipsticks are very soft and glide on smoothly and nicely. Except the Nr. 10; I don't know if something is wrong with my lipstick or if something is wrong with me, but I just can't apply it nicely. It goes everywhere and if I want to fix it with another coat,  it just ends up ruining the first one even more.
Nr. 10 and 2 have a slight shimmer in them, but nothing too major. All of them have a nice smell as well. They aren't the most long lasting, but hey, for the price you can not blame them :)

Here are some more photos and swatches on my lips:

 Bare lips

 Nr. 11 and 15

Top to bottom; 15 and 11

Nr. 2 and 3

 T to B; 3 and 2

 Nr. 10

Generally, I like them and I know that I'll get some more shades because they're cheap and the pigmentation is good. But I would recommended that you put a lip liner underneath or just line you lips, because they're very soft and can quickly transform you into a Clown.
And also check out as many swatches as you can before ordering, because the pictures on the MUA site can be a little bit off .

I hope that you find this helpful and that you have a lovely day.

  1. Great review! i had no idea there was a pot at the bottom... i always thought it was just for show :p

    1. I was also very surprised when I figured it out and I'm glad that you liked it :D

  2. 13 je moja najljubša ever rdeča. Odkar sem jo kupila skoraj ves čas nosim. Sem šla gledat v naše drogerije če je kakšen podoben odtenek in ga nisem našla, ali so bile bolj oranžne ali pa temnejše. Zakon rdeča za nas Sneguljčice je.

    Ps.: A lahko izključiš besedno preverjanje? Imaš pod nastavitvami - objave in komentarji- prikaži besedno preverjanje.

    1. 13ko si je moja prijatlca naročla in je res lepa barva, jo mam že na wish listi za naslednji nakup :)
