MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer Review: Atomic

by - 10:58 AM

I have been lusting over Lime Crime Velvetines for a while now. When MUA came out with their Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer I just had to get my hands on them, specially because they were easily available in Pakistan. The price difference between both brands is also phenomenal. Was MUA up to my expectations? Lets see.

The MUA Brand Claims:

"Get the ultimate velvet-matte pout with this richly pigmented, silky smooth lip lacquer. The quick dry formula glides on effortlessly to leave a gorgeous matte finish that is smudge-proof and long-lasting."

The EXPERIENCE:

- Shade: Atomic, a tangy bright orange. It looks different in every light and comes off as Coral red at times. It is sid to be a dupe of Lime Crime Velvetine Suedberry, the resemblance is there but not a lot.
- Highly pigmented, creamy formula which feels thick on your lips (pastry feeling)
- NOT quick drying. It took approximately 5 minutes. I also have liquid matte lacquer from STILA and DMGM, they dried instantly. MUA Luxe is really sticky and I had to keep my mouth open till it dried up completely other wise color peels in places.
- It does glide on easily with the applicator but you can't re-apply over the dried lacquer otherwise it starts peeling off. So you need to be quick and precise.
- Full coverage, one swipe is enough
- Beauty tip: Do moisturize your lips and hydrate before using this product other wise your lips will really dry up. My big lips were drying up fast.
- The finish was not as smooth and velvety as I expected, more powdery matte.
- Goes without smudging for a good 4 to 5 hours on me and I am happy with the budge-proof quality
- A steal for just PKR.500/- compared to Lime crime $20 (plus shipping and tax)

I was clever enough not to give into the temptation and only got one color to test.

I will, however, use Atomic again as the color is really sexy. When I first used it I was highly disappointed but after a few more times it's getting a little manageable. However, I wont buy this product again and will just finish the one I have :)

If you want to check this product out, you can buy MUA Velvet Lacquer from Just4girls.
