Hello IMBB Readers,
Today, I am going to review MUA Makeup Academy Lipstick in Shade 9. I asked my friend to get MUA’s cosmetics for me from Superdrug store in Belfast and lipstick in shade 9 is one among them. Parita’s review on MUA products always made me drool and I got lucky to try products from this brand *happydance*
Girls, there is nothing better than lipstick. Apart from maybe lipstick that costs just £1! Okay, 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 will have fantastic colour pay off resulting in gorgeous lips! Why not pick a shade you have not tried before and get a new look? It is just £1 after all, did we already mention that?
My Experience with MUA Lipstick in Shade 9:
MUA’s lipstick in Shade 9 is a neutral peachy pink color with a very slight hint of brown. It has got very fine shimmer and has a frosty finish. The texture of the lipstick is very creamy and glides on like butter. It has got an artificial scent to it which isn’t very strong and vanishes in 2-3 seconds.
I am not a fan of frosty finish but this color looks beautiful after application *oye balle* The pigmentation is on the sheer side, 2-3 swipes are able to hide only mild pigmentation (that is probably because of the frosty finish), but not the heavy one.
I personally feel that it is best to apply frosty finishes using a lip brush. The lipstick is very moisturizing but the lips need to be well exfoliated else the finish looks uneven and patchy. The lipstick doesn’t settle into the fine lines and doesn’t feel heavy on the lips.
It lasts on my lips for around one-and-half to two hours and fades away evenly leaving a slight shimmery frost behind (without any drinks and meal). It transfers on to everything like cup, spoon, hand, etc *cry* If you happen to eat or drink, the lipstick wears off from the inner lip line, but the shimmery frost is very much there on the outer half lip line and this makes it look uneven *headbang*
The packaging is great for its price with lip color in a small pot at the bottom for reference and can be unscrewed. Because of the creamy texture, the lipstick may melt and break if not kept in a cool environment. This shade may not suit all the skin tones. I find the color, texture and finish of MUA’s lipstick in Shade 9 exactly same as Anna Andre’s Deluxe Creme Lipstick Shade – 40200 *specs*

Last Word on MUA Lipstick in Shade 9:
Despite the cons, I do not know what more to ask from a lipstick that costs just 1 pound. All the females who don’t have dry lips, I’m sure this is going to last on your lips for more than two hours. A must try! *pompom*
