Review: MUA lipstick in shade 3


Hi everyone!
I finally received my MUA order. It took ages to arrive, because the demand was really high with the 25% off code and free delivery a couple of weeks ago.  I ordered 6 shades, but I only  received 4 :(
Anyway, I am very happy that I gave MUA a chance. I am in love with the consistency of all the lipsticks, they are very creamy, moisturising and very pigmented! I cannot believe they cost £1 each!!! I paid 75p for each lippy with the promotional code. AMAZING!
The packaging is simple and sturdy, although all 4 lipsticks are different sizes... weird, isn't it?
They are from the same collection, so I would expect them to be the same size.

The shade I am reviewing today is shade 3- I wish MUA named the shades with some quirky names, it would make a big difference. Shade 3 is a bright and warm fuchsia pink. I am in love with it!
It goes beautifully with my olive skin tone, but would also suit pale complexions.
The lasting power isn't amazing, but I don't mind, the colour fades evenly.
As soon as you get a chance, try MUA lipsticks, you can't go wrong, they cost £1!

  3. This looks like such a pretty colour, I've not tried any of the lippies properly, I bought one but gave it to my cousin without even trying it! x

  9. That's a real shame you had problems with your MUA order :( I've bought tonnes from them in the past and never had a problem. Its definitely worth ordering again though, all their products are great quality for the prices :)

    Shade 3 is probably my fave out of all their lipstick range, I've almost got the lot! haha

  11. I got three lipsticks along with many other items when they was doing this offer, i got shade 5 and two that where given names juicy and nectar. I don't understand why only some are given names. I certainly agree at just £1 each you can't go wrong with these x

  16. I love this shade, I wish they had names though

  17. I kind of like the fact they don't have names, whilst maybe not as "pretty" as other brands the simple names give it a feel of individuality and I kind of like that it's different. I love MUA though, they have really been a really go-to brand this summer for me!

  18. Beautiful shade! That's odd how the lippies are all different sizes, but for 75p each I suppose that isn't a big issue! Xo
