PUCKER UP! MUA Lipsticks Review & Swatches




MUA Lipsticks - £1

I have to admit, I was a bit dubious of MUA at the start- £1 makeup can't be very good, right?
Nevertheless, I have been converted and MUA have now become at home in my makeup bag!

I own a few of their lipsticks and these were two that I picked up recently. The first, shade 11, is a creamy, pink toned nude colour which is really, really creamy- I wouldn't twist this up too far as there's a risk of it snapping in half!

The second shade, shade 13, is a blue-based red with a satin finish. I love this with my Manic Panic lipliner, it's a classic shade and so smooth!

Sadly, in the wear time department they are no contender to my higher end shades. They both wore on me for around an hour and a half



I'd definetly reccomend these if you're looking for an affordable lippy and aren't too fussed about reapllying every now and then.

Opinions??

LIFEY THINGS

A couple pictures I took at the MCM Comic Con in May.
Hellooooo everybody,

How have you all been?
My life has been clogged with exam upon exam recently, and I'm finally free! (until next term, that is.) I've done a few exciting things recently, like going to Oxford for a tour around the University; going to the MCM Comic Con, and going on a little touristy trip around London.

I'm looking forward to the summer holidays- 6 weeks of bliss! I'm planning on a short break to Cornwall to catch up with a dear friend, which will be the first time I'll be on holiday without my family, so that shall be exciting.

Holidays also leave time for makeup, shopping and fun! Speaking of which, what kind of content would you like to see on the blog? Reviews, tutorials, videos, style posts? I'm feeling a bit iffy over the content I post and I think it's time to switch it up a little. I'd love to start doing more lifestyle posts; too.

Tell us what you think!

FIRE POUT! | Sleek Pout Paint in Lava





If anyone can tell me something fiercer than orange lips (apart from Beyonce, of course), then I will kiss your feet.

Okay, maybe not that far. But honestly, there is nothing that makes you look like a strong, independent and fierce woman than an orange lip. It's fiery, outspoken and bold!

This Sleek Pout Paint in Lava caught my eye on the little stand in my local Superdrug- I've been looking for an orange lip product for a while so I snapped this up.

I think this is meant for mixing with other colours in the range, but to be honest, it's gorgeous on its own. You only need a teeeeeeeeeensy bit on your brush, as a little goes a long way with this- It's really pigmented; though you can sheer it out!

It lasts around 3 hours on me without eating, and leaves a soft stain behind once it goes. This does settle into fine lines, though; and you'll need to exfoliate your lips beforehand so the product doesn't cling to any pesky dry patches.

Overall, this is brilliant- it hasn't left my makeup bag since I got it! I'm loving it; and can't wait to snatch up some more wild colours from the range!

Dare to be beautiful, ladies and gentlemen!
