Hello ladies! Now, unless you've been hiding under a rock (tempting sometimes I know) you're bound to have heard of MUA - the fab budget friendly make-up line sold in Superdrug that everyone is currently raving about. With prices beginning (and generally hovering) at just £1.00 MUA's range is absolutely fabulous for us girls on a budget.
Now, as you all know I'm well and truly a lipstick addict and recently my MUA collection has overtook any other brand in my make-up bag.
Let's have a look why:
L to R
'Lipstick Shade 6' | 'Lipstick Shade 1' | 'Lipstick Shade 16' | 'Lipstick Shade 13' | 'Lipstick Shade 3' | 'Lipstick Shade 11'
Left -'Shade 11'
A gorgeous neutral toned lippy that is far less pigmented that it appears in the photograph. Easily subtle enough for the most relaxed day to day look it can be layered for a slightly more intense look. Perfect for a 'nude' lipped look.
Right - 'Shade 3'
This lipstick is just pure fun. It's very 'barbie' and gives you a real hot pink pout. It's one of the more pigmented and stronger colours in the range and really does pop. It's creamy consistency however allows it to feel light and prevents lip drying. One of my ultimate favourites - teaming it with a simple cat-eye flick makes me feel very sixties chic!
Left -'Shade 1'
My real favourite of the collection, think Gwen Stefani, think Dita Von Teese and think retro glamour. An absolutely gorgeous and long lasting deep red lip that wouldn't look out of place on a red-carpet.
Right -'Shade 3'
Think Gwens' slightly younger, fresher sister. Less bombshell and more Sex Kitten. This is a lovely take on the classic red lip - I find it's refreshingly bright yet somehow not as heavy and dramatic. I'd wear this for a pop of daytime colour whereas 'Shade 1' I'd save for after dark.
Left - 'Shade 6'
A delight of a lippie. A beautiful pretty pink with a princess like sheen that subtly shimmers upon application. Out of all the MUA range I think this has the look of a really expensive lippie as it combines sparkle and strong colour perfectly. I've worn this on a few trips out lately and it's been complimented every time.
Right - 'Shade 16'
One of MUA's newest shades, a fizzy coral that's just perfect for summer. Luckily this works just as well on fair skin-tones as on olive and I can't wait to rock it this Spring. It's quite matte and looks really beautiful as a statement lip but also super pretty with a very light dabbed application for a quick and subtle colour injection.
So there we have it. A little introduction to my MUA collection, what's your favourite shade?
