Beauty | MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer

Hello Lovelies,

It's no secret that I am slightly addicted to matte liquid lipsticks so when the MUA Velvet Liquid Lipsticks caught my eye in Superdrug I knew I had to pick them up.

I bought them in the shades Reckless, Moxie, Kooky and Tranquility (L-R). I believe this range comes in 7 shades in total and costs just £3.00 each.

All shades in this range are very highly pigmented, they dry to a really nice matte finish and I didn't find them too drying on the lips, I always use a lip scrub and moisturise before using any matte products.

When using this product it does dry fairly quick so you need to get it on there fairly quickly, you wont need to rush too much. Like most matte lip products it's not buildable as it will just start to crack and go far too dry.
I used tranquillity to go out for a lunch and it lasted throughout eating, drinking and talking! I would say I probably got a good 5 hours out of it before it started to go a little patchy in places.

I highly recommend you go in and swatch them, only if you have money to burn because you will want to buy them as soon as you swatch it on your hand haha! Don't expect it to budge after swatching too, I had to scrub them off my hands! They have some serious staying power.
Let me know if you have used this product in the comments below?
