It’s Wednesday i.e. VIDEO day !!
So this video has been recorded for over a month and has been sitting in my video manager on youtube for quite a long time.
I had to continue re-scheduling its release date simply because I had other videos I could not wait to share with you all.
But finally, today it was set to public and so here it is.
MUA actually have released new items – their fall collection. However they are currently only available at Superdrug and will be online soon. I don’t know when as they were supposed to go up today however they will not be.
So a month ago I purchased a few new products. Here’s the video showing them –
The products that were mentioned were –
MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer in Sugar Coated
So this is a cute light baby pink/candy floss shade. The colour is cute and when I swatched it on my hand it seems amazing. However, when I tried applying it onto my lips I couldn’t manage to close it. Also it is a really light shade so it seemed to wash me out.
I now have used it by first doing a darker pink shade then using this Iced Shade as the shade in the middle – to create a lip contoured effect.
I also had tried it with the colour enhancer that I will mention below and that did not seem to work. I might not have waited long enough for the colour enhancer to dry resulting in a patchy result.
All in all, I like mixing this shade with a darker pink shade.
MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer in Iced
This had the same problem as the Iced shade however it seemed to be a bit better.
I did apply this both with the enhancer and without. Because I was using the enhancer as the primary base shade on my lip then applying the coloured shade on top. As I wrote before I should have waited longer for it to dry before applying the coloured shade.
This though applied better on its own however it did give me a patchy result which I don’t like. Usually their velvet lip lacquers are amazing, they are still one of my favourite liquid lipstick formulas out there. In fact, even if I do not quite fancy these 2 new shades as much I still cannot wait to get my hands on the new shades that are in their fall collection!!
MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer – Colour Enhancer
This can be used in the two ways. Either in the way that I mentioned above by applying it as the primary colour and then applying the coloured shade on top – now this I did not fancy a lot because it resulted in a MESS!
However then I tried it by applying a dark lip shade then I applied 2 dots both at the bottom and at the top of my lip with this enhancer. Then I blended it out and it came to have such a nice effect. Unfortunately, I don’t have photos of this but if you would like me to do a swatch video on these 3 shades please let me know in the comments down below!!
MUA Luxe Eyeshadow Palette – Enchanted
This enchanted palette is so cute ! The formula of these eyeshadows are soft and silky. They blend well and create such lovely looks!
I love this !
There’s two types of this palette, either this one or the Enrapture one. The Enchanted palette is more of the girly palette whist the enrapture one is much darker.
MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighting Powder – Iridescent Gold
I love these MUA highlighters. They actually are releasing more and might be intrigued to try them out as well.
Even though these are a bit powder-y I still would recommend them. They are quite in your face so be sure to apply just a little if you want not too much of a highlight.
