MUA Lipstick – Shade 1

MUA Lipstick – Shade 1

Hi everyone

Today I am sharing another product from my MUA haul. I already praised MUA for their amazing quality and price in my last post on MUA undress my skin flawless face primer. I was really surprised to see their 1 pound lipstick collection. I didn’t have any high expectations for such a price tag but I was impressed. Read on to know how it fared for me.

MUA Lipstick Shade 1

Product Description

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.


£1 (INR 100 approximately) for 3.8g


The MUA lipstick comes in a plastic black packaging. I love the compact small transparent pot that can be unscrewed from the bottom which contains lipstick in addition to the lipstick in the tube, this pot helps you get the right shade if you have more than one and also helpful for touch ups. Oh my god, for one pound price tags I am so happy with their packaging. No complaints 😛


The lipstick in Shade 1 is a pretty maroon red colour. The colour will look pretty on all Indian skin tones. I am really not a big fan of very dark colours as it makes my lips look very small, but I just thought I need to have atleast one bridal kind lip shade 😀

Texture and pigmentation

The texture is creamy and glides on lips really well. The lipstick has a glazy semi matte finish. Pigmentation is good and buildable. One swipe of colour gives a diffused red kind of colour to my lips, but with three swipes I can build up to full intensity. The lipstick has an artificial scent to it which is not very strong and vanishes in 2-3 seconds after application.

Staying power

MUA lipstick shade 1 lasts more when compared to another neutral colour lipstick shade I own from them. As the colour is a deeper shade, it leaves behind a strong red tint. The staying power of the lipstick is pretty good, it starts fading after some 4 hours of wear time.
