If you’re new to the liquid lipstick game and want to start off with something a bit more affordable, then at £3 each the MUA Luxe Lip Lacquers are definitely worth a try.
The lip lacquers come with a doe foot applicator which is great when you’re working with liquid lipsticks.
When first applied the texture is smooth and all colors are extremely pigmented. It takes about 30 – 50 seconds for it to dry to a matte finish.
It looks beautiful in the bottle but unfortunately not on me. Matches my skin tone too much and ends up making me look sick and pale - two things no girl needs!
Best to use two coats as the first applied patchy in some places. Dries in about 40 seconds.
Kooky is a deep purple aubergine.
This is hands down my favorite color out of the bunch. Deep, rich purple with amazing pigmentation. Unfortunately it is also the most drying and started settling into the lines of my lips a couple of minutes after application. After an hour I noticed some flaking on my bottom lip. Same as Halcyon, needed two coats of Kooky as first coat was a bit streaky.
Reckless is a bright red with blue undertones.
I'm not usually big on bright red lips but I do like Reckless. It is chic and super easy to wear.
Dare is a bright fuchsia pink with blue undertones.
It is so flattering! This color will definitely suit most skintones.
Final Verdict : Does settle into the lines of your lips and its best to reapply after eating and drinking, as it will form a visible line along the inside of your lips - this is especially the case with Kooky and Dare. It's also a bit of a nightmare to take off, as it flakes and you will need to rub it off (on a positive note, it does exfoliate your lips hahaha).
But other than that, it's pretty great for a 3 Pound liquid lipstick. Just don’t expect an amazing stay-all-day product.
