The four new shades make sure that this collection now has something for everyone - previously they were all very bright shades of reds and pinks - and even a dark purple! But the new shades include pale pinks and nudes so there is definitely a colour for everyone. I'm sure I've said before but I absolutely love the packaging for the Luxe Line from MUA - the sleek black with gold detailing and frosted tubes make these look so much more expensive than their £3 price tag!
Atomic: A lovely neon coral tone that is very orange based.
Kooky: A dark vampy purple, that I'm beginning to love!
Funk: A deep raspberry shade and one of the more wearable, every day sort of shades.
Reckless: Something every collection needs - a classic red!
AFlush: One of the new shades. A coral toned pink and is brighter on that I thought it would be.
Tranquility: One of the new shades. A light brown new shade and cool toned compared to the other nude.
Serene: One of the new shades. A light pastel pink shade and definitely too light for us pale skinned ladies.
Criminal: A hot bright barbie pink that is definitely perfect for the Summer months!
Halcyon: One of the new shades. The warmer out of the two shades as there is some pink running through it which makes it more wearable in my opinion.
A lot of people I have spoken too have had problems with the MUA Lip Lacquers, however I haven't had any problems and can wear them for 3 - 5 hours before a reapplication is needed. If you are having problems, I highly recommend moisturizing your lips beforehand as they can be drying at times, also I have found wearing a lip liner underneath the Lip Lacquers can help with their longevity.
Out of the four new shades - Halcyon, AFlush, Tranquility and Serene - I think I would say I liked Halcyon the best (no wonder it was the one that was the hardest to get hold of!) but I think that my favourites are some of the original five shades. Reckless and Funk will also be my favourites out the collection, however as I was swatching these I did fall a little bit in love with Kooky but I don't think i'll be wearing it a lot! Maybe more in the Winter months.
Have you tried any of the MUA Lip Lacquers?
