Review // MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Laquer's

MUA Luxe velvet lip lacqure's £3

When MUA released these i was extreamly excited as i have drooled over the more expensive Lime Crime version of velvet lips and by the looks of it so was a lot of other ladies as they sold out quick. I will admit and say this is a well over due review as i have had these for quite some time, in fact since before Christmas so i am sorry but here are my thoughts none the less. 

Everything from the packaging to the shades are wonderful and when they where finally in stock in my local Superdrug i snapped them all up minus one shade. I was in love and as soon as i got home i instagramed them and swatched them....sadly this is where are in love relationship ended. When applied the formula is wet and does glide on quite well, the shade is very pigmented and then it dries to create a velvet finish, sounds good so far right? About half an hour later it started to crumble an flake off from the middle of my lips, which parts of stuck to my teeth and it tasted horrible...thank god i was still at home and had not yet left to go out so this embarrassment was just kept for my eyes only. 

In hope that maybe this was just a one off i tried with the other shades i had bought and sadly it was the same for them all. The moment moisture hits the product or you eat or drink it crumbles and rubs off which is so annoying. I feel to be able to wear this well you have to be really conscious about what your doing, which is something I don't really want to have to do and would be constantly paranoid about how it looks. The formula makes it extremely hard for me to wear which is such a shame as the shades are beautiful so sadly I'm not in love with these as much as what i wanted to be. Even though these are cheep i still feel like the formula should of been a bit better and i wish i didn't rush into buying so many and held out to buy the Lime Crime version.

  1. In theory these sound so great! It's a shame that the formula is a bit dodgy xx

  2. That is disappointing, I really can't stand lip products that bleed or flake off, I think it's so embarassing when you're out and it happens..the shades do look lovely though!

  4. These look amazing but I've heard nothing but bad things about them. :(
    It's a shame because if they changed the formula so it didn't crumble of the lips, then they'd make a killing - esp compared to how much LimeCrime charges for theirs.

    I guess in this case, paying more is worth it.

  7. I've seen a lot of mixed reviews about these. Some say they're amazing and last for ages and some say they crack and flake off really quickly. I wanted to try them but as my lips are not very good with matte formulas I think I'll leave them x

    1. Maybe it'll be worth while if you just try one that way it's only £3 and it's not that much money lost (as long as your in the UK) if you find it does the same for you x
