MUA, a brand that's soon becoming quite popular with me and the rest of the blogging world have in my opinion, some of the nicest lipsticks about. With a £1 price tag you can afford to try it out and maybe disagree with me! The packaging is actually pretty nice for a pound. The 3.8g of product comes in the standard bullet form in a shiny black tube with the colour swatch at the end acting as a lipgloss of the exact same shade - just so long as you can get the darn thing off, quite unlike me! Oh! and please excuse the fingerprints all over the casing. Seeing them while editing this post is annoying me SO much!
This was my first lipstick out of their collection of 16 shades, me being my usual stupid self decided to plunge straight in for the brightest in the collection - Shade 3. The texture of the lipstick itself is very soft upon application. Its a very glossy, pigmented pink that maybe after a few hours becomes a little drying and needs a topping up.
Being a bright colour, I always find it best to wear a lip liner with this lipstick. The best match I've come across is the Natural Collection Lip Line in 'Ruby Rose'. It just eliminates the risk of getting smears and bleeding while your out and about. I don't know about you but I'm constantly worrying when wearing bright lips, checking a mirror every half hour for updates. The picture below is the lipstick applied, blotted then reapplied with the lip liner to define around the cupids bow and lower lip.
