MUA Lipstick | Lipgloss

Hello my lovelies, Spring is defiantly on it's way and by no way am I meaning the weather and all the usual familiarities that come along with it. But in many shops the sales are being shadowed by all the new Spring trends. Many of which I am loving right now. There is so much pink around right now ranging from hot pink to pretty pastel pinks. 

I am seeing so much that I like in the shops right now that all I want top do is splurge on new items of clothing. Unfortunately it is January and along with it comes the blues of having no money to spend on all these lovely things. However I do want to be on trend and the most affordable way of me getting into the pink vibe is to wear a lovely pink lip. No, a pink lip might now equal to that lovely dress I've seen in Top Shop or the gorgeous heels from River Island, but it certainly brightens up my day. 

I have been experimenting with a few brands with different shades. But the one which I have been wearing all week and has to be the most affordable in my collection which is MUA Lipstick in Shade 7 and MUA Lipgloss in Shade 5. At a total of £1 each you can't go wrong, it makes me happy and my bank balance happy. The products might not have the most appeasing packaging in the world of beauty, but its not bad either. Quality of the product is the most important thing and the colour that you see is the colour which transfers on to the lips. The lipstick is creamy and smooth whilst the lipgloss smells just like vanilla cupcakes (yummy!).

 (I was wondering if someone could tell me if the bottom part of these lipsticks come off? Mine completely stays put, but I've heard and seen on blogs that this can detach and you have a bit of extra lip product. Maybe mine is broken)

These two products look great together, they are not the brightest of pinks, but defiantly a wearable daytime pink. I am thinking of getting more of the MUA lip products but I literally have the smallest Superdrug ever and consequently the MUA counter is tiny, so I will need to order of the website. Its always hard to tell what colours look like on a web page but I would love to know what your recommended favourites are. If any of you are wanting to try out these shades you can order them here

Have a great weekend beauty babes



  1. Love the coral shades :D

  2. These look really pretty on you, I have that lipstick but it just doesn't suit me :( The bottom parts of the lipsticks do come off but some of them are stuck on too tightly I think, some of mine won't budge whilst others come off easily.
