I think I first came across these lip lacquer's last November when I was out in Cheltenham with an old pal. They sort of fell out of my mind and as I'm more often in Boots than Superdrug, I didn't end up purchasing any to try out until last month! I went with two nudeish shades, those being Tranquility and Harmony.
The MUA Luxe Velvet lip lacquer's are a steal at just £3 each, right? I do really rate the packaging for such a cheap product, I think the packaging makes it look a little more pricey! With it's gold lid and frosted tube, they're pretty instagramable aren't they? On the bottle it claims to be a long-wear matte finish lip lacquer, which I can confirm is mostly true. I've found both shades of this product to have a super matte finish which is wonderful and all.. but I wouldn't say that they're the most long-wearing lip lacquer's or matte lipsticks I've ever purchased.
I find that they do apply smoothly and at first, glossy, before drying to a super matte finish. Application is easy peasy with the doe foot applicator, but I just don't feel as though they last that long at all! They both seem to flake and fade away in the middle of both my top and bottom lip (I assume where my saliva would be reaching). Although, I've found that luckily, you can top up a couple of times without it starting to look a little cakey.
When I swatched in store, I adored these shades. Even when I swatched them at home I loved them! Tranquility is a subtle burn orange kind of shade whilst Harmony is more of a light peachy nude. That all changed when I applied these lip lacquers to my lips. PANIC, these shades just don't suit me at all! I really wish they did because I do really like the colours, I just feel a bit odd wearing them!
For £3, I'm definitely interested in trying out some other shades from this collection, but I wouldn't be overly fussed if I didn't. A similar product that I have tried that does last a lot longer are the Make Up Revolution Velvet lip lacquers, that and I do prefer the shades that I have from that collection!
