MUA lipstick in “Tulip” -Review & Swatches.

Hello ladies,

Hope you all are doing great. Yes, I have been quite busy lately because of assignments, but I am trying to schedule my life even more. I have set a dozen of reminders for everything in my phone. Yes! I have been THAT busy, but today I am back with another review which is on a lipstick by the very known, budget friendly makeup brand, MUA (Makeup Academy).

ABOUT THE PRODUCT:

MUA Lipsticks offer a shade for every occasion in easy to wear colors. In shades from red, pink and nudes each is packed with pigmentation for a gorgeous application.
Easy to apply – glide over the lips for desired effect.

MY THOUGHTS:

PACKAGING:

It comes in a sleek black swivel tube with silver accents and brand logo. It has a detachable pot at the bottom that contains more product or same color and texture. The tube has a sturdy cap, which makes it easy to travel with.

QUALITY:

Formulation wise, the lipstick is very buttery. It has a sheer coverage that is build able to medium. It glides on smoothly on the lips without tugging or emphasizing any dry patches. It stayed on my lips for 2 hours without eating or drinking, then faded away evenly. I would not say it kept my lips moisturized but they didn’t feel dry as well because of its creamy/buttery texture. It has a tendency to settle in fine lines of the lips if over layered or used with any lip gloss. Maybe that is why it already has a slight sheen so, you would not require a lip gloss to use over it.
The shade Tulip is a cool toned taffy pink shade. I did not find it to be suitable for our Desi skin tones. However, the only way I made it work for me was with a gun metal and silver smoky eye. I found everything else way to warm to compliment this shade of lipstick, even my skin tone. For reference, I am NC 25/30 in MAC.

FINAL VERDICT:

I am not a fan of buttery formula of lipsticks so I don’t think I would try other shades from this line, but it is a steal for people who like creamy/ buttery formulation. Other than that, this lipstick deserves a pat on the back considering it’s price and performance.

RATING: 3/5
