M.A.C Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour -Red Jade review

Hey guys a flash review of the MAC matte liquid lip colour in Red Jade. This was a blind purchase in terms of buying it without actually seeing the colour in real life. My decision was based on the colour shown on the MAC site. 

This lip colour is applied as a liquid but it drys matte.  I loved these types of lipsticks because they are very long lasting and do not transfer. Although this is called a Red Jade, it has an orangy undertone.  Shades like this are very vibrant and great for the summer. I was so pleased with the colour. Totally my kinda thing. 

I had some challenges applying this lip colour. In order to avoid streaks I had to apply 2-3 coats. DO NOT pat down once the lipstick has started to dry.   I mad this mistake and had to start over because it caused clumping .

I really like the applicator. The shaping helps with going round the lips for better precision. So far I have had lots of compliments on this lipstick.  I bought it here with 30%off.  The great news is that MAC are doing 20% off all products right now using the discount code mac20. So you can buy this and other similar fab products.  

Have fun.  
See you soon.

MUA LUXE Velvet lip lacquer – Gravity

So this is the last of the 3 lipsticks bought from the MUA LUXE velvet lip lacquer range. 

Today am wearing the shade Gravity.

This colour did not disappoint. I have been trying to build my collection of nudes and this fits perfectly into what I have already. 

The product is marketed as Long wear. In all honestly it last me all day. I usually have to use a makeup cleanser to remove this lipstick at the end od the day. Am sure you are all wondering if there is any transfer. You will be pleased to know that there is no transfer once dry.

Hey… if you have tried other shades in this range let me know your thoughts. Amy recommendations are welcomed in the comments box below.

MUA LUXE Velvet lip lacquer – Euphoria

Hey guys … so today am trying out the Euphoria Velvet Lip Lacquer.

Not sure how to describe this lipstick.  It looks very Pinky in the hand. Almost like a baby pink.

However on applying it, it is super bright and rather luminous. 

This is not for the faint hearted.

While am growing to love this shade I found the application some what difficult. The colour was streaky. So in my effort to combat this I applied various layers …ooooops. BIG MISTAKE ! Sadly this just made the lipstick very thick and a little crackly.

I decided to tone this lip colour down by lining my lips. 

I have one more lip colour to trial.   Stay tuned . Let me know which colours loving so far

MUA LUXE Velvet lip lacquer – Sizzle

Lipsticks are a girl’s bestfriend.  It’s even better when you find a good buy. 

You can image the glee when I found out the superdrugs were doing 3 for 2 on beauty products. I didn’t plan on buying this lipsticks but the offer was too good to miss🙈

I spotted the MUA LUXE liquid lipstic and thought I would give it a try. 

Totally impressed by the colours available. Cool nudes and some vibrant blue shapes.

I opted for the Sizzle as I do not currently own any rusty orange shades of lipstick.   This is exactly how I would describe this lipstick. A rusty, burnt orange tone. 

This lipstick tub is well designed with a light frosted finish.  

I like the pigmentation of this lipstick. Well worth the £3.  Yes I said £3. It dries fairly quickly so you have to be quick. Once dry my lips do not feel hard and dry, or crumbly like most matte lipsticks. 

I will keep you all posted on how I get on with the other shaded that I bought. 

This product was purchased from Superdrugs.
