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

  7. Walaupun sebagian besar orang tampak menggunakan masker bedah standar serta masker dengan peringkat KF94, terdapat pula sebagian merek lokal yang memproduksi masker modern.

    Salah satunya adalah Idontcare, terdapat pula banyak merk yang lain semacam Etiqa, Looka, Apury, merk lokal yang jadi terkenal akhir-akhir ini. Walaupun masker merupakan aksesoris yang sangat diperlukan, tetapi masker sudah jadi fashion (dalam sebagian permasalahan) serta merk ini sangat universal di Korea.
