MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer - Review

We all know how much i love mattes...

After weeks of pretty much stalking my nearest Superdrug and being teased with an empty display i finally got my mitts on some of these bad boys! When i first spotted them they only had two on display, but i managed to snag another one before they sold out on the Superdrug website! Hurrah!

MUA are continuously stepping up their game with product launches and these might be my favourite product to date. Matte lips are near enough the only lip i rock nowadays so these were the perfect addition to my collection. I skipped the red shade because i already own Limecrimes Red Velvet and the lighter pink shade because i just wouldn't be able to pull it off, but am delighted to have snagged the other three colours in the collection.

So did they live up to the hype...?
 (silly question since I've already expressed my love for these)
Atomic, Funk and Kooky


These impressed me so much I'm actually considering buying the red because i prefer the formula to the Limecrime offering. Insanely pigmented, long wearing and extremely comfortable on the lips makes these babies a winner in my books. Like any liquid lipstick i still wouldn't recommend these on dry or cracked lips and i use a good balm 5 - 10 minutes before application. They take a little while to dry down to a matte finish, but when they do they are absolutely beautiful and wear on me for a good 5 hours (I'm a lip fidget so they'll probably wear better on everyone else). 

The frosted packaging feels and looks a lot more expensive than other MUA products and considering these retail for just £3 they are an insane bargain. If a high end brand were to release these they'd sell for over five times the price. I'd go as far to say that these are the best liquid lipsticks available here in the UK at any price point right now. If you're not a fan of bright or bold colours, i don't think these are for you as every colour in the range is extremely bright. But looking at how on the ball MUA are with their releases who's to say we won't see a more natural selection of colours appearing on the shelf in the near future... Dusky rose shade please MUA!

Atomic, Funk and Kooky

Overall i think these fantastic products and I'll be getting a ridiculous amount of use out of these in future and especially over the festive season with parties and Christmas coming up! If you can get your hands on them, do it, do it now! I wholeheartedly recommend these little beauties and can imagine these flying off the shelves for months to come. Superdrug and MUA frequently have deals on so keep your eyes peeled for those, Superdrug currently has 3 for 2 so you could get three shades for a mere £6 currently, bargain!
