MUA Lipstick – Shade 3

Oh how I wish MUA named their lipsticks, numbers just aren’t interesting and while I understand that the basic packaging keeps down the costs with brands such as MUA surely they could assign one member of their team the job of naming their colours, no? It’s a little detail but I’m sure it’s not just bloggers that appreciate that kind of thing. Regardless the quality of these lipsticks is really nice and you absolutely cannot go wrong for £1, the formula is creamy, the colour pay off is great and they’re not at all drying. I do have one little irk and that’s the smell. They smell like plastic.. is it just me? They’re original glosses smell so good I just can’t understand why the lipsticks can’t follow suit.. but that’s really my only dislike with this product.

This colour reminds me a lot of Speak Louder from MAC only a little more blue in tone.. definitely a shade I will wear often

Overall I’ve been happy with almost everything I’ve tried from MUA and I don’t know why I haven’t featured them more so after many requests I have stocked up on some new items and dug out some old favourites to share with you over the coming weeks. If you have anything specific you’d like me to review leave a comment below.

    Love this shade on you. I really like MUA products generally, but recently I was disappointed with the Pistachio Ice Cream Nail polish brush which was soooooo scratchy. I’ll be posting a review soon, just wondered if you’ve tried their nail polishes? xx

      the brushes on those polishes are awful, really let down a great formula!

    That colour is gorgeous! I love Shade 7 – and I agree with the name thing! Simple job but just makes the product that bit more interesting xx
