My Experience with MUA Serene Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer:
The packaging of the lip lacquer is truly luxurious and classy. It comes in a velvety matte finish, black coloured cardboard packaging. This outer cardboard packaging has all the details about the product written at its back in gold. The lip lacquer tube is frosted with a matte black coloured screw on cap. The cap has the brand’s name in gold.
The packaging is sleek, elegant and travel friendly. The applicator is a typical doe-foot applicator. The applicator is soft and is of good quality. The applicator wand is neither too long nor too short. It picks up the right amount of lip colour that is required for one application.
The shade name is mentioned at the base of the tube. Serene is cool toned baby pink shade. This shade does not go too well with my skin tone without proper base and eye makeup. I think this shade will suit too fair skin tones only and it will wash out the others. This shade is little bit difficult to apply and I struggled the most with this particular shade. I prefer to apply this one with a lip brush than with the applicator provided.
The lip colour is intensely pigmented like other shades from this range. This particular shade from this range cracks a bit with time. It sets to the perfect matte finish but it takes so long to dry and set perfectly. The texture is again awesome. It is soft, smooth and velvety. It glides on the lip smoothly. It does not feel drying. But layering this lip lacquer gives a cakey finish.
I tried applying it both with a lip brush and with the applicator provided but it streaks with both. It is waterproof, smudge proof and transfer proof. It lasts for really a long period of time. But it chips from the centre of the lips with meals. Taking it off is super easy with an oil based makeup remover. Overall, it is really difficult to apply and carry this shade. It is not a versatile shade and can be skipped.
