It's getting to the time of year where I want to amp up my make-up. The brighter nights are coming in (though that 1 hour robbed me of sleep...) and I'm ready to get vibrant with my lips and nails. I recently spotted MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquers on one of my many trips to Superdrug. I picked up the shade Atomic. I loved the colour of this lacquer as it reminded me of MAC's Morange which is my ultimate summer lippy. The colour photographed does look more like a pillar box red but in real life, it's more of a orange red. The texture is really amazing. Apply 1 coat to lips and leave to dry. It sets in a velvet matte texture which looks so bold and bright. I would suggest a layer of lipbalm (I've a preference for good old Blistex) before these for anyone with particularly chapped lips. A layer of lip balm is also good to pop over the colour later in the day to revive the colour. The quality of these for the price is amazing. I can imagine myself picking them up in many different colours. Atomic would make a perfect statement lip for a night out as the lasting power is fabulous. The only down side is that I had to take eye-makeup remover to my lips to get it off!
A must try bargain product that rivals many higher end brands. MUA is available in Superdrug.
