REVIEW: Mua Lipstick Shade 16 Nectar


This was the second MUA lipstick that I bought and it's the second one that I've reviewed. Shade 16 is a bright coral that really appealed to me over the summer as it seemed like such a happy, summer-y shade.


It's a lovely and creamy consistency but feels a lot like a balm than a lipstick as it is quite thin, this means that if you have any dry patches on your lips it really does stick to it. However, the quality of the lipstick is good for the seriously low price but my main issue with it is that it isn't as good as the quality of Shade 11! It seems weird that across the same line the quality would differ. 



Don't let this put you off too much though because as you can see the colour is really delightful and for £1 you would be hard pushed to find something of a similar quality. On my pale skin this can come across slightly too orange depending on how tanned I am, so this is something to consider if you're not a fan orange toned lips.



And as always, don't forget about the (not so secret) compartment in the top of MUA lipsticks where there is an extra pot of lip stick hiding!

You can find MUA Lipsticks in Superdrug stores or online for just £1, and there is currently a 3 for 2 offer on in Superdrug so if you were keen on trying some of the range out you could get 3 products like this for just £2.


What's your favourite budget lipstick?

    1. Aw that's a shame! If you ever get a chance to do a little haul I'd recommend their lipsticks, nail polishes and their nail caviars x

  5. I had wanted to buy during their fb sale, but after the website crashed I couldn't get my items to check out. So I had given up. This makes me wish I hadn't. HOpefully they hit another landmark soon so they release another code :P

    ps thank you for your comment on my blog about the glitter gradient nails~:)

    1. Those discount codes make their products even better value! I'd probably recommend Shade 11 over this one but if you like coral tones then you'll probably really like this x

  8. I love this colour! I never would have thought to wear it but my make-up artist recommended it for my wedding reception and it really was gorgeous. Can't believe it is only £1!!!
