MUA Lipstick Review

I’ve only recently discovered MUA as a budget beauty brand and on the whole I am really impressed. Walking past the stand I couldn’t believe MUA lipstick was £1! So I instantly bought 3 to try out. I picked up shades 11, 13 and 16, you don’t get the fancy shade names with MUA.

Shade 11 is a coral colour, very vibrant with peach and orange tones. It reminded me of the bareMinerals Go the Distance lipstick that I love so thought I would try the colour dupe.

Shade 16 is a natural shade, a blushing nude with hints of brown, not too dark but adds a very complimentary tint to my lips, perfect for everyday wear.

MUA Lipstick Plum

Shade 13 is a similar shade to the Yves Rocher lipstick I recently reviewed. I’ve developed a love for red lipstick so thought I would add to my collection. This red isn’t as pillar box red as the Yves Rocher, it has some pinky orange tone but still gives a very striking colour, great for brightening up my pale complexion or wearing on a night out.

MUA Lipstick Review Summary

In terms of packaging the MUA lipstick is not cheap, in appearance it could be from any drugstore range. The lipstick isn’t scented but I was impressed with their staying power. They can be slightly drying the but the lipstick doesn’t smudge and is hardwearing. In my Yves Rocher post I commented that my lipstick didn’t stay put and that with red lipstick I would need Lipcote but that isn’t the case with these, they hold their colour really well.

Although MUA lipsticks might not be my number 1 lipstick of choice I was really impressed with the product for the price and will definitely add them to my basket in future. There isn’t the broadest range of colours but MUA seem to be expanding so lets hope more are to come. For £1 you can’t really go wrong!
