MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer Review

I recently (I say recently..) bought some MUA velvet lip lacquers on recommendation from my good friend and blogger, Miss Mandarin & I can say, I’m really impressed!

I purchased these from Superdrug at the bargain price of £3 each! At the moment there’s only 6 shades available (there was 9, Dare currently isn’t available, I’m not sure if it’s been discontinued or not *sadface*)

The colours I bought are Dare, Reckless and Kooky.

L-R : Reckless, Kooky & Dare.

I’ve only wore Kooky (Purple shade) outside the house, as I’m still unsure about wearing bright colours on my lips – I just don’t know if I suit them or not! However, Kooky lasted quite well through eating, drinking and talking for hours on end, I only had to re-apply it once! It didn’t flake off or feel drying at all, which was a worry for me as I have really dry lips and I thought it would just accentuate any dry patches and make my lips look disgusting, but it didn’t, it applied smoothly.

They apply creamy, but dry to a matte finish so if you aren’t looking for something matte I’d steer away from these, other than that I’d really recommend them I’m just sad I can’t find Dare on superdrug at the mo as it’s such a beautiful fuchsia shade.

As they are so long lasting, removing them can be a bit of a pain! I suggest a good Micellar water or an oil based cleanser to remove them to avoid scrubbing at your lips which isn’t ideal.

These are my first lip lacquers I’ve tried (with the exception of one Apocalips from Rimmel ages ago) and I’m now lusting after the other shades, especially A Flush & Serene as they look like lovely pinky nude shades.

Do you have any recommendations of Liquid Lipsticks/Lip Lacquers? I’d love to hear!
