Oooooohhhhhh I’m so late to the party with this one! Despite all the hype around the Kylie Jenner Lipkits and all the other various brands on the market doing liquid lipsticks such as ABH, NYX, MAC, Colourpop and Revlon to name a few, I just didn’t jump on the bandwagon.
But the time has arrived for me to get involved small, small lol! I stumbled across these by accident on my latest trip into Superdrug and if you aren’t familiar with the brand already, MUA is a very affordable drugstore brand.
Quite often there are 3 for 2 offers throughout the store across various brands, and after seeing this amazing post by the lovely Christine over at Yveschild I was on the hunt for the Sleek palettes but to my dismay, they didn’t have the one I wanted!
Below are swatches on first application and when dried matte. When I first applied these to my lips they felt very moisturised but I must say that feeling changed rapidly when it began to dry matte, shortly after I felt as if my lips were super dry. I’m not sure if this is normal but the lipsticks felt particularly drying. I would also recommend exfoliating to avoid flaky looking lips as it shows much more with such a matte lip products – which I don’t do at present so if anyone could recommend something for me that would be great!
Although these MUA lipsticks felt quite dry soon after application, that feeling soon passed and they began to feel like ordinary matte lipsticks. One thing I must add is that these are very long lasting, the staying power is ridiculous! When trying to remove these please make sure you have some very good wipes!
