I’m surprised I’ve never featured MUA as a brand on my blog before since they’re SO AFFORDABLE. They’ve been around for a while now and I know that I’ve picked up a few of their items over the years that have always been slightly hit and miss – but those that didn’t work well with me have never come at a big loss since everything they sell comes in so cheap.
Whether you’re new and starting out with makeup and building up your own collection, or an experienced makeup lover like me; this brand will always be tempting to all. Especially since the following lipstick in today’s review costs one – whole – pound. Not such a loss if you don’t like it at the end of the day, right?MUA – Makeup Academy Lipstick | Shade: BARE £1.00
Packaging: I’ll admit, the packaging isn’t MY taste, but thats absolutely fine.It is nice to have a lipstick in your bag that looks nice but more importantly its about the product inside. If you didn’t already know, this lipstick contains a tiny little screw pot at one end. A lot of people were absolutely flabbergasted when they found out that this actually opened up and that this existed but I feel like its something I’ve always known… It is 100% safe to use too, another question asked by many!Product: The lipstick itself feels really creamy and hydrating on the lips and is super comfortable to wear. The shade Bare is around a shade lighter than my actual natural lips so doesn’t match too well, but for days where I do want to wear a super nude look it will be perfect. It’s shaped nicely and is really easy to apply. When its on it has a lovely sheen and overall looks great. The wear on it isn’t fantastic, but when you’re eating and drinking with a normal lipstick, what do you expect? There’s definitely remaining pigment even when half of the lipstick has worn away from food which shows how well pigmented it is. It’s easy enough to pull it out of your bag and reapply it though so I’m workin’ it!GIVEAWAY!: This is exactly why you’re here, I know it… WOWFreeStuff are giving you a chance to win 1 of 10 MUA lipsticks – EEEK, freebie!
