MUA Lipsticks: Lilac Belle, Pouty Pink & Tulip

who doesn't love a £1 lipstick?? 
A few weeks ago now I bought these 3 lipsticks from MUA including 2 matte shades from Superdrug.  They are £1 each if you hadn't of guessed and I got them on 3 for 2. I had been wanting to get a lilac shade so I couldn't resist picking up two more when I was in store.

mua matte lipstick- lilac belle
This is a nice lilac/pinky shade on me which is hard to show on pictures. This shade for me is definitely wearable during the day. Overall I'm happy with this shade, its a winner for me. (just to let you know it looks darker on this post.. for a better reflection check out our instagram emandhanxo)

mua lipstick - tulip
This is by far my favourite and the more I wear it the more I fall in love. It's a dusty pink shade on my lips and is definitely a wearable shade. This applies so smoothly on the lips. It hasn't got the greatest staying power but that's fine I don't mind reapplying as I can pick up another one cheaply. (for some reason this shade has gone extra light when I put the picture on here, check out the picture on twitter here)

mua matte lipstick - pouty pink
This pink for me is a summer pink... Sadly i'm not loving it. I don't know if this is because it's winter and it's a sumer shade.. we'll find out in summer. 

Just to let you know I have found the matte shades a bit drying, so I recommend using a lip balm. Also I have found that they aren't as pigmented so will need a few times going over to get the colour you want.

Let me know if you've tried any MUA lipsticks and what you think of them? or even possible recommendations in the comments! I would definitely pick up more in the future...

see you soon, han x

    I agree, pouty pink might be more of a summer shade though!
