Review: MUA Lipstick in Shade 7

   
MUA CLAIMS
Girls, there is nothing better than lipstick. Apart from maybe lipstick that costs just £1! Ok definitely lipstick that costs just £1. Don't say we're not good to you. Our amazing lipsticks come in 16 shades from red to pink and nude and are packed full of pigmentation. With just one swipe you'll have fantastic colour pay off resulting in gorgeous lips! Why not pick a shade you've not tried before and get a new look? It is just £1 after all...did we already mention that?

PRICE & AVAILABILITY
£1 / PKR 200
I bought it from Just4girls.pk. International readers can get it from MUA Makeup Academy.

 £1 lipstick! A trashy product or a great bargain?

MY OPINION
This would be the first time I have ever been mislead by internet swatches. I was hoping for a more peachy shade and it turned out to be pinkier than I wanted. I have also heard around the internet that people who have bought a same MUA shade twice have sometimes ended up with an altogether different colour. I don’t know how far is that true!
This Shade 7 is not bad at all for pink lipstick lovers, in fact it is really pretty pink, great for everyday wear. I was also not excepting it be pink shimmer. The shimmer is very slight and not that noticeable, but I would not have bought if I knew before as I am not a shimmer/glitter fan.
I have used Elf’s $1 lipsticks and they screamed cheap in their packaging and making. Especially the fact that they were so darn creamy they arrived broken. MUA has a simple, business-like look and the bullet arrived intact. The lipstick is nicely pigmented. The formula is creamy and glides easily giving a glossy finish. Though I would have liked it to be a little more moisturising.  It also has a slightly sweet scent but is absolutely tasteless.
And of course, numbered products you do lose a little bit of your impression on me. I wouldn’t have judged you Shade 7 if you were even named Pinkiness (or maybe..I would..just a little).

RATING
Besides the colour, because I was hoping for something else, the lipstick is of pretty good quality for something priced at £1 (PKR 200).
