MUA LUXE Velvet Lip Lacquer- Kooky & Funck Review n Swatches

Posted by Amani Zaara at 20:31
Hello beauties out there,
Hw ru people doing..? M feeling very lazy in these cozy winters.. Anyways let's get back to work. Here's the review of MUA's newly launched LUXE collection picks..



These are named as mua luxe velvet lip lacquer.. It comes in 5 shades.. Atomic is an orange red shade, reckless red is a deep red shade , criminal is the shade I was dying to buy but it's out of stock on the site, it's a bright pink shade n the shade is a dupe of mac candy yum yum.. 

The shades I chose are Kooky which is a bold plum shade.. It's. A dark purple n I don't thnk many people can carry such a dark shade.. Takes lotta courage.. N the other shade is Funk which is a beautiful fuscia pink.. M in love with this shade..

So let's start the review,

Price: 3£ which is about 306 rupees in India.. Highly cheap..

Product claims:


Smooch your way to red carpet glamour with MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquers. Long - lasting and kiss proof, these intense formulas come in five rich, vampy shades. Encased in chic frosted glass packaging, these lacquers glide on with the ease of a gloss, drying in seconds into a matte velvety texture. They are the ultimate make-up bag must have.
Get the ultimate velvet-matte pout with this richly pigmented, silky smooth lip lacquer. The quick-dry formula glides on effortlessly to leave a gorgeous matte finish , that is smudge-proof & long lasting.

Ingredients:

Polyethylene, Polybutene, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ozokerite, Isododecane, Dimethicone, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Silica, Cyclomethicone, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.

Packaging:


I loved the packaging .. It comes in a tube with a black screw wand with its label imprinted in gold... The best part about the tube is that it's a total matte finish tube. This makes it stand out the matte feature this special lacquers posses.. I love matte lipsticks.. These are usually referred as dupes for Lime Crime velvetines which are very high brand product n costs about 10 times more than these tubes for about 13£ ..

My thoughts on the product:

These cheaply priced lip lacquers are amazing.. M really exited to share my experience with u all.. These lacquers are matte textured but not extreme matte or dry . They are highly pigmented n extremely long lasting.. They don't easily come off with makeup removing lotions too. N that may last long. 


The packaging also looks elegant and more expensive that it is. When you apply them on the lips  they do look glossy but after a  minute they dry to a matte finish.

The formula and pigmentation is amazing when compared to the price. It applies smoothly without leaving any streaks or uneven color patch. They last long and of course doesn't bleed or transfer if its not wet. If you touch both of your lip before its completely dry then it crumbles. 

Another thing I noticed, the more heavily you apply it more it tends to crumble. So Apply quickly with light hand in one or max two quotes.. They usually flakes of in the centre of the lips after your food but only if it's oily..  So touch ups are required.. But I don't mind if I spent only 3£ on this product.. 

Now coming to the shades:

Kooky:

It's a dark purple shade, plum are usually not preferred by many specially such darker plum.. people usually call this shade as vampy.. but this shade can b build up.. In one Application it gives lighter shade n can b build by applying two layers n make dark.. N it's a rare shade which I find in a few high end brands like mac .. So definitely if u want a bold shade then try this.. Surprisingly looks good on me n I think both the shades I picked goes great on fair to dusky skin tones.. 



Funk:

Funk is a bright pink shade and by far my favorite for autumn/winter. It is darker than Criminal and in my opinion much better suited for this time of year. Goes well with fair to dusky skin tones. This pink is trending a lot these days n this can b pulled of in summer as well as it's bright n looks fresh. This shade instantly brightens your complexion n gives your face a fresh look.. M in love with this shade..




Overall, it delivers more than my expectations when compared to the price.. So overall definitely a must must have product.

Cons:

Flakes in the centre after having oily food.

Rating: 4.5/5 

Will I re purchase: 

The product is quite good quantity , n if at all I finish it then I will surely purchase it..
