MUA Cosmetics is well-known for its affordable and good quality makeup products. Best part is that they keep on coming with new products every once in a while. Their £ 1 Lipsticks are the most talked about product apart from their Eyeshadow palettes. I have reviewed two more shades 6 & 13 from MUA Lipstick before, you can check the same HERE
Shades – MUA Lipstick No 2 is a plum lipstick with pink undertones and No 13 is a bright red color. Both the shades specially No 2 looks pretty good on medium complexion (NC42). I was expecting No 2 to look closer to Amorous or Captive but in MUA Lipstick No 2 plum tone is prominent that pink unlike the MAC ones (Amorous or Captive). Shade No 2 looked bit frosty in the lip swatch below but in person it is not that visible, though its shinier than No 10 in finish.
Texture & Formula – MUA Lipstick has smooth buttery formula. Both shades 2 & 13 glide on smoothly without tugging or pulling. Formula has a satin finish and feel. Its not very moisturizing but neither drying. It does feather out and move around lips due to its super silky texture so using a lip liner is highly recommended. Lips should be prepared before applying these lipsticks as they aren’t the most moisturizing formulas out there. I haven’t observed formula settling in fine lines of lips.
Pigmentation – Both shades 2 & 10 are very pigmented. One swipe covers lip pigmentation really well.
Staying Power – MUA Lipstick has average staying power, i.e. 4-5 hours. I had a full course meal and that wiped off major part of lipstick from my lips. But it didn’t go completely and stayed on as a stain for sometime.
MUA lipsticks are one of the best budget lipstick available out there. Formula is soft buttery and doesn’t feel uncomfortable on lips. Both 2 & 10 are very pigmented and look good on medium complexion. Packaging is nice and doesn’t look cheap. Only downside is availability as MUA lipsticks available in Indian market are pretty high priced.
