Beauty: MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer



MUA Luxe – Velvet Lip Lacquer - £3

The MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer’s have been on my radar for a few months now, my Superdrug is rubbish though and didn’t have any of the MUA Luxe products in until recently. When I spotted the Velvet Lip Lacquers on the shelf I was a little bit excited, they only had 3 of the shades available and the two pink shades looked quite similar so I just picked up these two: Reckless (Red) and Funk (Pink). I was interested in the red shade as I am a die hard fan of the Lime Crime Velvetine in Red Velvet – it’s my go-to red lip nowadays, I was interested in how the £3 equivalent would fair.



I’m impressed with these products, they are cheap and they work quite well. They apply to the lips a little thickly but that’s not really an issue, the applicator is quite large though so you do have to be super careful not to get it all over your face – you can see a little bit of bleeding in the red shade above. Once you’ve applied these and let them set they really do stay put, they don’t budge at all – it was really difficult to remove them actually. They give a perfectly matte look to the lips which I really love as I dislike glossy finishes most of the time. I will definitely pick up the other shades if I see them, the purple looks interesting.

Have you tried these out yet?

  1. I absolutely love my lip lacquer (I have the reckless one too!) but the one thing I don't really like is the way it drys. It is quite sticky and I don't really like pressing my lips together when I have it on. I LOVE the colour though!!

  2. LOVELY colors! Really gorgeous. These two flatter your pale skin very very well :-) Please do a comparison post of Velvetines Vs. MUA :-)

  3. The pink shade looks amazing! Love it! xo

  4. You picked two gorgeous colours, they look pretty on you. For the price I have to try them. I love a good budget buy
