Mini MUA Lunchtime Shopping Trip!

MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer (Shade Criminal)
MUA Power Pouts Lipstick (Shade Broken Hearted)

Morning all, I hope you are all having a great Friday and looking forward to the weekend!
Todays post is going to be about a mini lunchtime shopping trip I went on yesterday!

Firstly, I would like to thank Kate from check her blog out) for her recommendation of MUA products! I started off buying a little to see how I got on with the brand.

MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer (Shade Criminal)
When I saw this I had to buy it, the packaging was very posh looking and the colour was so enticing, for a whopping £3 what could I lose?!
I am in two minds about the product. The colour is absolutely fantastic and is exactly the same as it is in the bottle. It is very easy to apply with a very matte like texture.
I would recommend this product for anyone who does not suffer with dry lips and is looking for a beautiful, bright, pigmented finish.
This product is great and I will definitely be purchasing it in more colours. However, I would not necessarily recommend this if you are looking for a lip colour you can wear all day and reapply easily (like I need to do quickly at my desk in the office!).

MUA Power Pouts Lipstick (Shade Broken Hearted)
I was instantly drawn to this because of the similarities it has with the Clinique Chubby stick. Like the chubby stick this is a lip colour and balm.
I did not expect too much from this being only £3, but I can safely say I absolutely love this product. It is very easy to apply and it is extremely soft.
The product did not last as long as the chubby stick (which I did not expect it to). I needed to reapply it after 1 hour of wearing it! I was able to reapply without it feeling thick and clumpy.
The colour does not have a strong pigment, but definitely gives noticeable colour.
This product left my lips feeling extremely moisturised with a lovely subtle pink colour. I would definitely recommend this and have purchased two more colours off the MUA website (so please keep an eye out for a post with these in).

Overall I am extremely pleased with the two MUA products I have purchased and have just ordered myself a few more products from their website, so please keep an eye out for a post on these :)!

Thank you for reading my post! Please let me know if you have any recommendations for my next one!
