Hi guys!

A little while ago, I made an order on the MUA website. I was totally going to make a haul post but when I took some pictures, I kind of forgot to take pictures of a few products (bad blogger)...so I decided not to post that. Instead, here is a review/ swatch  of one of the lipstick that I purchased. I have never tried MUA lipstick before but I have heard many people talking about it, so I was rather curious. This one that I've picked up is shade 14 or Bare (as MUA has started name their products, hooray!).



Bare is definitely a nice nude lip colour. Personally, I think it looks a little bit like light peachy nude with a hint of brown. Smells like vanilla which is quite nice, although not really something that I'd rave about. MUA lipstick has pretty good packaging for it's price. It's simple black and chrome, can't really go wrong with that. Don't forget that at the bottom of this lipstick, there is a pot of gloss! I haven't tried mine out yet, so I'm not really sure if it's the same formulation as the lipstick.


The formulation of this lipstick is very creamy and pigmented. Although, it does settle into the cracks of my lips a little bit. Once applied it looks quite streaky, so you need to layered it up to 2 coats. Overall, I think that this is a pretty decent lipstick for the £1 price tag. I think it would look amazing topped with clear gloss and with a bit of smokey eyes. As well as for everyday wear. I don't think that this shade will suit everyone though because it's possible to look too concealer lips (not a good look). Overall, I probably won't repurchase this because it's a little bit hard to work with. I prefer the formulation/ease of applying of Shade 13. Nonetheless, I think it is workable and not bad for the price.

You can get this from MUA website or Superdrug.

Any recommendation for any other shades of MUA lipstick I should try out?

  2. Nice review! It's a shame the formulation of this lipstick isn't so good. It looks nice, though.
