12 Days Of Lipstick #5 – MUA Luxe Velvet Lacquer in Funk


 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!

    Hi Mikhila, I love your videos and you are definitely my favorite you tuber. I am a student on a media course in college and would really love to be able to get some information from you about editing. Your videos are made really well and you seem to have some great knowledge about editing. As you produce many videos a week I assume editing is a big part of your job. If you wouldn’t mind answering a few questions, I honestly mean 2-3, could you let me know your email, here is mine: imanruby@hotmail.co.uk and I could send you them through that? Whatever is easiest for you, thanks for your time, Iman
