SWATCHES & REVIEW : MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquers

Sawasdee ka~

I mention about this MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquers in my last post. I’ve had these lipsticks for a while now but I didn’t get round to reviewing them sooner. Anyway, I bought these because I heard good things about it. My first attempt to buy them fail because they were out of stock :/  So when I saw them re-stock again I didn't wait but grabbed them straight away...Typical me ha!

There are currently 10 shades available and I bought myself 6 out of 10 :Halcyon a warm peachy nude tone, Aflush a light corally pink, Funk a deep raspberry pink, Criminal a bright shocking pink with blue undertone, Reckless true red and Kooky vampy purple for the brave. As you may know from my previous post, my favourite out of them all is Reckless ❤︎
My first impression is actually packaging. It looks super sleek with black and gold detail on the lid and that frosted tube make them look more luxe. Can't believe it's only £3 each! The applicator is doe foot which works really well for this lip lacquer.

In term of product itself, I have to say that the finish is vary from shade to shade which I will talk in detail later. These lip lacquers are incredibly pigmented and really opaque. I only need one swipe to get full coverage and it's easy to blend. These claims to be long lasting and kiss proof with a promise to get dry in seconds. I can confirm that it's long lasting but it doesn't dry in seconds. It need full five minute to completely dry and I do not recommend pressing your lips together while it settling and do not apply more that 2 coats as it will feel too cakey! However once it dries, it does not budge! I can even tap my finger on my lips and there is no bit come off. It's one of the long lasting lipsticks I have ever had. The downside might be the feeling of dryness on your lips but that is what normally happen with matte lipstick and I don't really mind about that. I found that apply lip balm beforehand does actually help with dry feeling and wear a lip liner underneath help with the longevity.

Right talking about the finish of each shade. All the bright bold colours are really amazing!!  For me, I always apply lipstick before breakfast and with these lip lacquers I don't have to worry about re-applying it. To mention though, it tends to transfer or flake if you eat oily food. For nude/light colour, like many other brands that do matte lipstick, they often encounter the super dry finish when comes to nudey shade and to no surprise Halcyon and Aflush is actually one of them. I'm pretty disappointed by the fact that I love the colours but once it dries it clings on to lips and make my lips look like dry land especially when you smile :/ If you can't imagine you can look at the picture below. I've actually tried a few different things to stop this from happening, but still the same thing happened :( 

Overall, I'm really impress with the quality and price tag of the products. I couldn't wait for new shade to come out.
