Hello IMBB Readers
Today I’m going to review MUA Makeup Academy Lipstick in Shade 3. I asked my friend to get MUA’s cosmetics for me from Superdrug store in Belfast and lipstick in shade 3 is one among them. It is my first bright pink lipstick.
As per site:
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?
My Experience with MUA Lipstick – Shade 3:
MUA’s lipstick in Shade 3 is a beautiful bright pink color with very fine silver shimmer particles that is hardly visible. The texture is very creamy and glides on like butter. The lipstick has got a semi-matte glazy finish. It has got an artificial scent to it which isn’t very strong and vanishes in 2-3 seconds.
The shade instantly brightens up the face. The lipstick is highly pigmented and very moisturizing but the lips need to be well exfoliated else it looks uneven and patchy. The lipstick does settle into the fine lines but doesn’t feel heavy on the lips.
It lasted on my lips for around 4 hours (this includes drinks and a meal). Blotting helps to survive heavy meals. The glaze goes away in an hour after application. It transfers on to everything like cup, spoon, hand, etc. The color fades away leaving a strong stain behind. The wear time of the lipstick completely depends on how much does one eat or drink. The more you eat/drink the sooner it will wear off.
The packaging is great for its price with lip color in a small pot at the bottom for reference and can be unscrewed. Coz of the creamy texture, the lipstick may melt and break if not kept in cool environment. This shade may not suit all the skin tones.

Last word on MUA Lipstick – Shade 3:
Despite of the cons I do not know what more to ask from a lipstick that costs just 1 pound. One can easily experiment with colors at such a price before purchasing a high-budget lipstick. A must try! *pompom*
