Following on from yesterdays Retro Matte from MAC.. MUA’s Velvet lip products are another gorgeous way to wear a bright, long lasting lip this season. Those of you who have been following me for a while will know of my love for the Miners Matte Factor lip paints which are very similar to these. You apply a very thin layer for a huge pop of colour and it stays put better than anything else. I’ve tried the matte lip lacquers from Sleek and found then hugely disappointing, they look great at first but then wear away in no time at all.. just rubbish – but then I’ve heard other reviews from people who love them so.. who knows, maybe it’s just me.
You can get a brighter lip with a second coat but I’ve found that more than one coat negatively affects the wear time so I avoid it.. but you can definitely build the colour. The packaging for the new Luxe line from MUA is super sleek and this does not look like it came from a budget beauty brand with it’s frosted tube and black and gold theme.. I love it and will definitely be picking up some more!
