MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer

MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Laquer Reckless
Liquid, matte lips are the hottest new trend, and recently they've been taking over the shelves of every drug store. I picked up an MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Laquer for £3 from Superdrug, in the shade 'Reckless'.

I had high hopes for this lipstick, the price was right and the colour was on point, however the formula was not.

The packaging is casually chic, the frosted tube takes away the drug store appearance. It has the typical doe foot applicator which I find the best and easiest for applying a mattifying liquid lipstick.

The colour pay off is absolutely amazing, and completely opaque. 'Reckless' is a mix of fucshia pink and a deep red. Now on to the downfall of 'Reckless', the formula is thick, gloopy and drying all at once, It looks like a hot mess when applied. I've tried wearing it alone, wearing it over lipbalm, over a lip pencil and even patting lip balm over it - nothing makes this lip lacquer look or feel nice. It never fully dries, so feels tacky and sticky, which is not ideal for such a dark colour, the fear of it smearing it undeniable.

Liquid lipsticks are a hard formula to pull off, and sadly MUA did not quite manage it.

What are your thoughts on the Luxe Lip Laquers?
