£1 Lipstick!!

I have to admit, I am an absolute lipstick junkie! I blame this mostly on the copious amounts of YouTube videos and blogposts I watch and read everyday on the subject! When I worked full time nothing filled me with such joy as a new MAC lipstick in my collection (my favourites being Patisserie and Syrup). However, now I'm a full time student there is no way I can justify spending £13.50 on a lipstick :(. So you can imagine my joy when I discovered something that, in my opinion, rivals MAC lipsticks for a fraction of the price. £1 to be exact!! No that wasn't a typo. £1 £1 £1!!!!

MUA products are stocked in Superdrug stores and are available here and here. I have owned the famous Heaven and Earth eyeshadow palette for sometime now and use it everyday without fail. The colours and quality of the shadows are outstanding and I'd say definitely as good as MAC.

Anyway, on to the lippies. I bought two - shade 2 and shade 10. Shade 2 is a deep fuschia and shade 10 is an orange-toned red. Both look beautiful on the lips, both easy to apply, both long lasting and both feel moisturising. A big fat thumbs up from me! Sorry the picture quality isn't great and the two pictures of the product applied on my lips definitely do not do it justice!

  2. I've got shade two as well! Evidently, it's not the greatest lipstick... It doesn't apply on as smooth as I would like it too, but for £1... it's worth it I guess! :)
    I love your blog. Now following :)

  8. I haven't tried any MUA products yet but I think £1 for a decent lipstick means I may have to give them a go. Nice review (following)
