As you may know from some of my previous posts, I am a huge MUA fan - The products are great quality and amazing value.
I hadn't tried anything from their Luxe line, slightly higher in price & posher packaging. So when I was in Superdrug the other day I thought I'd pick up one of their velvet lip lacquers in the colour funk.
The packaging is really nice, it looks a lot more expensive than the £3.00 price tag. The shade I picked up is called Funk, it's a deep pink shade, this is the most neutral out of all the shades available, there are four other shades in the range, two reds, another pink & a purple. To be honest, I think this is the only shade I'd actually wear as the others looked a bit bright to me.
It reminds me of the Rimmel apocolips, in the fact that it's a bit like a liquid lipstick, it's super pigmented and you only need the tiniest amount. Because it is so pigmented it is a little difficult to apply & if you make a mistake this can be a disaster as it pretty much doesn't budge once its dried. Once I applied this to my lips I blotted off the excess with a tissue and it went from being a lip gloss into a stain. It stayed put literally all day, it survived eating & drinking without hardly any change to the colour.
Overall I'm really impressed with this lip gloss, the pigmentation is amazing and it doesn't budge. I had to use waterproof makeup remover to get it off!
If MUA came out with a few more neutral colours I'd definatley buy more, however the other colours in the range were too bright for me, but If you like bright lip colours then I'd really recommend them.
