MUA's £1 lipsticks are a budget beauty must try. At the moment there are 16 shades in the range and there is a varied selection of shades to suit a variety of skin tones. I own four MUA lipsticks but Shade 11 was the first one I bought and it remains my favourite.
The lipstick's packaging is black and silver and although it is distinctively plastic and cheap it doesn't feel as cheap as it could for being a £1 lipstick. I've had no problems with my packaging breaking, I can still twist my lipsticks up and down without a problem and the lid hasn't cracked or anything like that.
The lipstick itself is good quality for the price. As you can see from the swatches above it provides opaque colour in two layers but one layer of lipstick can be applied for a lighter, more natural wash of colour. It feels a lot like a lip balm on the lips and doesn't last very well, only an hour or so, before needing to be reapplied. With Shade 11 I don't find this something that bothers me though as this shade is very much a 'my lips but better' colour (when just applying one layer). I tend to use this lipstick on days when I'm not really wearing much make up but still want a little help looking my best.
Lastly, at the end of the lipstick is a small pot of colour which is actually a little but of extra lipstick. So when you see these lipsticks in Superdrug stores you can trust the the colour at the end of the lipstick is an accurate representation of the product as it is actual lipstick! You can try and use this little extra bit of lipstick but, as you can see in the photo above, I had a go at using it and it was quite dry and only came out in a lump. It's a nice idea though and it makes it really easy to find the right shade when you're picking out which lipstick you want from your collection.
All in all I would recommend trying these lipsticks (especially 11, as I think it has the best colour and quality of the four that I've tried) because for £1 these products are good value. You can buy them in Superdrug stores where there is a MUA stand, on the Superdrug website or on MUA's website here.
Have you tried any MUA lip products, if you have what is your favourite?
