So way back in October MUA finally released their eagerly awaited collection of Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquers. Hailed as a purse friendly dupe for the sought after Lime Crime Velvetine Liquid Lipsticks, the velvety matte lacquers flew off shelves almost instantly. After months of searching but to little avail, I finally managed to get my mitts on two out of the five shades, Criminal, a fun, almost neon pink, and Funk, a more wearable yet bright pink.
So were the lacquers worth the wait? Seriously pigmented, long lasting and well packaged, its hard to believe that the Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquers cost £3. Always a sucker for the little touches, I was pleased to see the lacquers housed within sleek, yet sturdy frosted packaging, finished off with a simple black lid and stylish gold lettering. Within the lid is a doe foot applicator, which I will admit makes precise application a little tricky. Its definitely not a one swipe product to use on the go. That being said the end result is worth spending an extra few minutes infront of the mirror for.
At first the lacquers feel a little wet and glossy, however once dried you are left with a beautiful velvet, matte finish. In terms of longevity I was left seriously impressed, aside from some slight fading around the centre of the lips, the Luxe Velvet Lacquers seriously do not budge, so much so that removal is a bit of a pain (not even my trusty Bioderma does the trick).
So overall, the MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquers, are seriously pigmented, and long lasting. Application is a little tricky, but the result is totally worth it. In terms of price, for a mere £3 you really are getting your moneys worth and then some.
The MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquers can be purchased from Superdrug (in store & online) aswell as the MUA website.
