MUA Lipstick Shade 7


 Usually I would have nothing but positive things to say about MUA’s lipsticks however this one isn’t great. It’s the colour, it’s the frosty finish, it’s a bad choice on my part and not necessarily a reflection of the product but I just really didn’t love it. In the picture above it looks a little patchy and I think this is mostly down to the finish.. it’s not opaque but made with a lot of shimmer and that doesn’t always add up to a great formula.


Maybe if it was creamier I’d like the colour but it all seems quite dated which is disappointing since the brand is usually so on point with their lip products. Only once before I have I been really let down by them and it was early on, a very pale pink lipstick that looked very opaque in the tube but gave zero colour and very little product.. it felt like the plastic lipsticks they have at high end counters so people like me can’t ruin the real ones 😉 just not good.

Other than that (and this) I’ve only been happy with them so I’m hoping this is just a matter of personal preference.. this felt really nice on my lips and applied well too I just don’t like how it looks and that’s not MUA’s fault that’s just how I feel. If you have this I’d love to know how you like/don’t like it and what your favourites are from the brand because I’d like to review more.. i just don’t want to pick another dud.

    I guess things work differently for different people because I absolutley love this shade, it’s my favourite shade by mua apart from niall’s lipstick from the one direction range (don’t even like one direction but it’s such a beautiful colour). I don’t know why shade seven is going patchy for you I got nothing but compliments about the colour on my lip with the lipstick 🙂 x

      someone just tweeted me that they bought 2 by accident and they were totally different so that inconsistency might be why

        Probably, I haven’t repurchased another one, but when I do I hope it’s the same, as I love this lipstick, thanks 🙂 x

    I have shade 8 and it’s really patchy and lasts about 20 mins so wouldn’t recommend that! It’s put me off buying any other shades!

    I feel like I have this shade and it’s totally different. But I do like MUA lipsticks so hopefully if you try another one you have better success!

    I have this too and I hate it, wore it once and rubbed it straight off. I really like some of their other lipsticks, I agree that the formulas differ hugely between shades! x x x

    It does look quite frosty, looks like something I’d be really attracted to in the shop but wouldn’t suit me at all!
