Small MUA Haul

Hmmmm, how can I explain this MUA haul...I'd like to make it clear that it was a very SMALL haul, purchased during a free worldwide shipping offer. Included are some products from the luxe collection that I'd been lusting after for a while. Actually I wanted these at the time that I was buying birthday/christmas gifts for myself, sooo maybe a late gift for myself??? ;)


I have been wanting to add some more matte lipsticks to my collection, so my purchase included Velvet Lip Lacquers and Matte Lipsticks. The glitter palettes intrigued me, so a couple of those finished my order.


Matte Lipsticks (L-R) Scarlett Siren, Peachy Keen, Pouty Pink.


Velvet Lip Lacquers in Funk, Reckless, Atomic.


Burlesque Glitter Palette


Twilight Glitter Palette



Please excuse the melting face, it was just so hot! I absolutely love the matte lipstick formula. Although it has a matte finish, it is one of the most moisturising formulas that I have used on my lips. It is so smooth, and doesn't leave my dry lips looking patchy. Although, it lasts well, obviously during the day the lipstick fades. I just applied lip balm over the top, and it gave me an even subtle colour. I was pleasantly surprised!





The glitter cream is great for a fun look. I'd only go as far as wearing it as a liner, it was hard enough to get rid of the glitter, I can only imagine how hard it would be to remove 2 lids worth, lol. I love the look of the initial application, but thanks to my hooded lids, I did experience transfer to my upper eye area. I would take a guess that these would be likely to crease. They're oh-so-pretty, tho. That's important too, right? :)




Oh dear, I really need to stop taking photos on so-hot-face-is-melting days, lol! Anyway, here I am wearing Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer. This colour is so far out of my comfort zone, but you know what? I actually like it! I love the finish of these lacquers. They aren't as moisturising as the lipsticks, however they aren't too terribly drying. My lips did appear to be patchy after a few hours wear, however, some lip balm evened my lip colour, whilst giving moisture to my parched lips. They are always so dry!

I am over-the-moon with the lip products, love, love, love! The glitter palettes are fun, but not a necessary addition to my makeup collection. Thankfully, MUA are so reasonable with their pricing.
Have you tried MUA?

    1. I'm so glad that I got these. Free shipping is something that I find hard not to take advantage of. It helps that MUA's prices are so low, too :)
