MUA LIPSTICK SWATCHES - SHADE 7, SHADE 15, SHADE 16, SHADE 4, SHADE 3 AND SHADE 5.

In order we have shade 7, shade 15, shade 16, shade 4, shade 3 and shade 5.
I've done all these swatches outside, so the pictures may not be as clear as they'd be with flash. I wanted to show these swatches nearest to their colours as I possibly could. These are the first ever MUA lipsticks I had ever tried, and at £1 a pop you can't complain. I usually swear by Mac lipsticks, so I was curious to how these turned out. The wear on all of them is nothing special, but does the job perfectly. These are just as good as many other high street products out there, so check MUA out before purchasing anything you're not too sure on! 

SHADE 3
As I said in my previous MUA post, it's a shame these aren't named.
That would give the colours more personality!
Anyway we have Shade 3, a gorgeous dark yet bright pink.
Even though it's bright it still has a soft look to it so it 
doesn't come off as bright as it looks in the tube.
This reminds me a lot of  Punk Pink by BarryM,
You can see that post here.
I really love how this comes out, and this is pretty moist too for
a lipstick - it's not drying at all like a lot of 'cheaper' lipsticks
can be.





SHADE 4
I couldn't be more puzzled by this. I purchased this thinking it'd be a bright pink
like it's shown on the website. 
No.
No it's not.
In fact the bullet has a strange plastic feel to it, almost like the play make up you
get when you're a kid.
That aside it had a nice look on my lips. A subtle pink colour
which actually looks quite nice.
It's a lovely finish too and would work well for
the spring.
But I still can't fathom out this product, it looks so bright in the bullet.





SHADE 15
Even though this appears to have a lot of shimmer in the bullet, once on the lips
it just looks more glossy than shimmery.
I love coral lipsticks so naturally I was going to love this too.
It's slightly darker and slightly more pinker than you'd find coral to be like.
This is such a pretty shade. This comes out so creamy and feels
lovely on the lips.
I think it's brighter than I expected it to be and wont wear it as much,
but I still will give it a wear in the summer.





SHADE 4
This isn't a shade I'd usually pick out.
I got this from the lovely Rosa in a blog swap I did which can you see here.
That aside it is my favourite MUA lipstick I have.
I think it's gorgeous.
It has a lovely pink look to it with a handful of pearly shimmer.
It's divine! It feels so nice on my lips too, but
sadly feels slightly drying.
I do love this though and it looks gorgeous. The perfect amount of shimmer for me.
The wear on this one isn't as long as the others, and will need a few top ups during the day.




SHADE 7
I can't praise this colour enough. It is perfect. As I just said,
I love corals.
This is a perfect matte with slight gloss lipstick.
This colour is amazing and is so opaque.
It's so creamy too, but like the previous one I feel it's a little drying.
I will be wearing this gorgeous shade a lot, I can promise you!


SHADE 16
This shade is gorgeous. It's a very bright coral/orange.
It has a perfect finish - It's opaque, it's has a slight glossy sheen to it and it's just gorgeous.
This may be a bit bright for a lot of people, but I will be wearing this bullet down in 
the summer I can tell you!
I can't get over how lovely this one is, and as you can see for yourself it has a lovely finish with
plenty of colour.

So there we have it! My MUA lipsticks swatched and reviewed. I will be swatching
the palettes and eyeliners very soon as I promised.
What is your all time MUA product?
Do you like the look of these? Which one is your favourite?
I'd love to hear from you! 
Thanks for reading!

  4. I love shade 3. I currently have shades 2, 15 and 13, which I am actually doing a blog post about tomorrow!

    Also did you know if you turn the base, where the colour of the lipstick is, anti-clockwise there is a little pot of lipstick, so you can use that as lipliner.
