MUA's bargain lipsticks review

Have you ever wanted to try a certain lipstick shade, but the fear that it won't suit you and will be money wasted has put you off? Well, never fear, MUA is here with it's selection of £1 lippies

When I first saw them I knew they would be the perfect way to experiment without breaking the bank. I wasn't expecting good quality and I didn't need it, I just purely wanted to see if those light peachy shades so many people love would work for me. So I picked up 3 shades (MUA have finally started naming their shades, which I love!) The lightest being Nectar, a pale peachy pink colour, Juicy a darker, orangey coral and then finally shade 1 which is a dark red and the least experimental, I just decided I fancied it.

So, like I have said I really wasn't expecting much, but these are amazing quality for their £1 price tag! they are creamy, pigmented and have a nice sweet scent. The lasting power isn't brilliant (though the dark red does leave a nice stain on the lips) but for a measly quid I don't mind a few extra top ups. Oh, and did these lighter peachy colours suit me? well the lightest shade I am still not sure about, the middle colour I loved and I knew already I would like the dark red!


  1. I really want to pick up some MUA make up, it just seems like such good value! £1 for a lipstick is insane! xoxo

  3. Love this post! I really like the lighter too colours but think the darker red would be great for autumn/winter :)



    1. Thank you! they are really nice, and yes it would look lovely over A/W, cen't beat a red/berry lip :) x

  4. I think a lot of people forget just how cheap these are, so many people say 'oh they're a little dry' or 'they wobble in the casing' but they're only £1 each, we can't expect high end quality now :P I think for the price they're pretty awesome :)


  5. I love the look of the middle lipstick! It's like a peachy shade! I really love the MUA lipsticks.. they're cheap, and quite long lasting too xxx
