MUA - Purchases Review

MUA Purchases Review

I bought a couple of things from MUA, and overall I am pretty happy with the quality! 

left to right:
1. MUA Fashionista Fashion Secret Vanishing Cream 
2. MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer - kooky 
3. MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer - reckless

For £3 this stuff is pretty good! It was on sale from £10, and its a similar product to the porefessional balm by benefit that i reviewed previously. Honestly, when i first opened it, it looked a bit dodgy in texture but when i applied it, it wasnt too bad. This cream minimizes appearance of pores, wrinkles and any skin imperfections! It needs a bit more product than the benefit one to make a difference, but it still does a relatively good job! The texture is a bit jelly like, and doesnt come off straight away. Its a lot cheaper than the benefit primer, so i recommend this as a heaps affordable great product for its price :)

2. MUA luxe velvet lip lacquer - kooky (purple) and reckless (red) - £3

It is basically like a lipstick, its such a bold and strong colour and is really easy to apply, as the applicator is thin and works precisely. You only need a little bit of lacquer so spread, still with intense colour. The kooky shade is such a great deep eggplant purple and reckless is a beautiful elegant bright red. The texture of this is amazing and i am so glad that i bought these! As it dries, it becomes matte and so velvety smooth. The best part is that it stays on so well, it doesnt come off onto your teeth or while eating. Id say its a similar product to the limecrime velvetines, they give the same effect / look, except a fraction of the price! Such a good buy, i definitely recommend this for those who like the look of lipstick, but hate maintaining it or hate shine! 

Love always,
