For a very long time it’s always been very easy for me to default to red with my lipstick, but when I saw this lipstick from MUA I knew I had to have it.
Shade 3 is a warm bright pink. I was a bit apprehensive at first – worried it would be “too bright” or make my teeth look yellow. The colour is warm and was a lot easier to wear than I thought. I was also pleasantly surprised to find that the bottom of the lipstick unscrewed to reveal a small pot of a more matte and pigmented shade of the lipstick. HOLLA!
The colour applies evenly across the lips and it has a very creamy formula. It goes on very bold with one swatch and has a semi-matte smooth finish. It lasted about 2-3 hours on my lips (about average for most lipsticks) and faded quite evenly leaving a pink stain. It has a light sweet scent which may bother some but I didn’t find it too intrusive and couldn’t actually detect it once it was on my lips.
At £1 a pop you can’t really loose with these lipsticks. If you’re looking for a matte finish they aren’t for you but if you want to experiment with colour and are looking for a creamy lipstick with a solid lasting time you can’t really go wrong. The added bonus of the formula not being tested on animals should get snaps all round from beauty lovers! There isn’t much holding me back from buying all of them now!
