MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer - The Full Collection

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you will know at the start of the year I reviewed MUA's Lip Lacquer line, however since then they have released four new shades so I thought I might as well do an updated post which includes better photos and covers the whole 9 shades. I did want to do this a few weeks ago however, one of the new shades was impossible to get hold of - Halcyon. Every single time I popped into Superdrug they were sold out - however, I went in after work one day last week and they had one left, and it came home with me!

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?

  1. Such a useful post! I only own Funk and I do find it wears away from the centre of my mouth within a couple of hours, but it's not too bad if I wear lip liner and it's fairly easy to touch up. I think because I'm always fiddling with my lip piercings, it makes it harder for the product to stay in place.

    I really want Aflush after reading this, but I'm also lusting after one of the Too Faced Melted lipsticks in a similar shade, so I think I might treat myself to that instead!

  8. These look great! I've not tried anything by MUA before so one of these might have to be my first purchase.

    Funk is a lovely shade and I really like the look of the nudes too.

    Thanks for sending over your link, I can't believe I haven't found your blog sooner, it's great!
