^ From left: shade 9, shade 7 and shade 14
Since I started testing a variety of lipsticks lately I had to get the £1 MUA ones. I have mixed opinions, not really sure what to start with. Well, I do like the way shades 9 and 14 look on my lips, they are nicely pigmented and stay on for quite a while. But when it comes to shade 7 I was so disappointed, I liked the colour a lot and hoped it would look amazing, but the result was the exact opposite. The lipstick wasn't anywhere near as pigmented as the other two and my lips looked really bad, as if there were little cracks all over. All three lipsticks seemed really nice when I swatched them in the store, so maybe the one I picked up is just faulty. Now on to the packaging, I like the way it looks - black tube with the colour at the bottom in a tiny plastic. However, once I unwrapped it I realised that this tiny bit of plastic with colour inside it comes off really easily which I'm not particularly happy about. Plus, the shade 7 lipstick is really loose and seems like it's going to fall apart completely. Then again, they were only £1. I'm definitely going to use shades 9 and 14 (I especially like 9), but shade 7 is going to the back off my drawer I'm afraid.
