MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer Review - Atomic

Friday, 26 September 2014

A short while back, I had a little MUA Cosmetics Lip Haul and picked up some new lip products in varying formulas and shades. I love matte lips and this summer I really enjoyed wearing coral and orange shades. I love the idea of wearing a bright orange lip throughout autumn as it reminds me of Autumn leaves and bonfire night. 

The MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer retails for £3.00 at Superdrug and MUA Online. The Velvet Lip Laquers are billed as being long lasting, kiss proof and with intense colour.

Now, I can confirm they have intense colour, although in terms of being long lasting... well, take a look for yourself.

I don't think I've ever had a lip product peel on me before, so this is a new unexpected problem. The above images detail what happened when I pressed my lips together, which really doesn't bode well for being long lasting. Can you imagine wearing a bright orange lip on a night out and without even realizing, lose a lot of it just by pressing your lips together? I for one, can't think of anything worse. Which means that if this happens in my flat, it's highly likely to happen in an environment where I don't have a mirror to hand to fix it. 

In this case, there' only one place the MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer is headed... the bin. I'm actually really disappointed. I was expecting so much and feel a little let down. Oh well... at least it was only £3 right?

  1. That's really odd! I don't have this colour but a different one from the line but for me it dried on as a stain after a couple of mins. Maybe you got a dud :(

  2. I found this as well! Such a shame because the idea and the shade range is great. Obviously a case where the dupe absolutely fails! x

  3. The colour and pigment looks amazing but it's such a shame it peeled like that off your lips, never seen anything like it x

  4. I am so surprised by this! I have seen so many reviews of this, and nobody has once mentioned this! I thought they looked such nice products, but what a shame! Thank you for your honest review!

    1. Haha I can't stop staring at how many times I said "this" in that comment! True shock right there, ha!

  5. This is such a shame as it was a product I was really hoping to pick up. I might still pick one up to try, although your review will be very close in the back of my mind.

  6. Its like a bad lipstick horror movie O.o
