Blogmas ¦ Day 6 - MUA Velvet lip lacquers

If you read my post a couple of weeks ago you will know that I'm a little obsessed with my lip lacquers at the moment if you didn't read the post it's here. Today I thought it was about time I started working my way through all the reviews. I actually have one of these lacquers in the old black lidded packaging and when I first tried it I remember really not getting along with it however when I was taking lip swatch pictures for my recent makeup collection posts I gave it another go and I was actually quite impressed.

I picked up three shades from the new line, two which I really love and one which I'm not to sure about. In the end I picked up Vivacity, Kooky and Tranquillity. Vivacity is a bright raspberry shade, Kooky is a dark vampy purple shade and Tranquillity is a peachy nude shade. Tranquillity is a shade which I really thought I'd love however I'm just not a big fan of it. It looked a lot more brown in the lighting in Superdrug but it is actually very orange toned and I definitely get the whole concealer lips vibe from it.

In terms of formula they aren't my most favourite lip lacquers but they are really nice. They are really long lasting however they do feel a little drying on the lips. They set down matte however they do feel like there is a coating on the lips unlike products like the Sleek matte me's and the Bourjois rouge editions. If you have super lovely and un-flaky lips then these would be brilliant for you however if your lips have a tendency to be a little dry then your lips will definitely need a little bit of TLC before you apply  



  1. I've also got three of the old black lid ones and I absolutely love them but you are so right about the dryness of them! I always have to make sure my lips are well exfoliated before using them!

  2. These look good for the price!

  3. They look so good, do they dry matte? because I really want them definitely have to treat myself to more than one Christmas present this year!
