MUA lipstick collection with swatches

Hi Beauts.

If you read my post the other day of my MUA eyeshadow palettes overview then you'll know I'm a huge fan of the brand.
As well as a bit of a collection of their palettes, I have a fair few lipsticks and wanted to do another post of the lippies I have. I always find these posts helpful whenever I'm looking to buy a make up product, so I hope that some of you find this post helpful too

Let's go light to dark:

Shade 4

This is a pretty bright pink in the tube but once applied it's quite sheer. It is buildable though and gives a gorgeous baby pink colour. This is one of the more moisturising and glossy lipsticks from the range

Shade 'Bare'

This is the only nude in the lipstick range, and a great one at that. It isn't as glossy as shade 4, but it's still quite moisturising. I'd say this is a great nude for all skin tones, not one that will make you look dead :P

Shade 7

This shade is kind of a pinky orange colour which I didn't think I'd like (I never go for oranges/peaches) but I really enjoy wearing it

Shade 6

Shade 6 is such a pretty pink shade with an extra sheen to it

Shade 'Nectar'

A peachy coral shade which is perfect if you have pale skin like I do. I usually find corals/oranges/peaches too warm for my skin tone, but this works great

Shade 12 (I think, the label came off)

This is a vibrant cool-toned pink and I think it's perfect for summer. Not one for you if you don't like to sport a very bright look. I like to pair this with winged liner for a different take on the pin up look

Shade 13

The perfect pin up red in my opinion, and probably the lipstick I reach for the most when I'm going for a red lip

Shade 2

This shade is a pretty plummy purple colour and looks great on paler skintones

Shade 1

This is a gorgeous vampy red, and great for Autumn. Again smooth to apply and super pigmented

Each of the MUA lipsticks are £1.00 each. These are definitely one of my favourite brands of lippies, not only are they SO inexpensive, but they're smooth to apply, not drying at all, super pigmented and they last all day. The brighter and darker shades leave a stain behind, which looks like you've only just applied your lipstick.

Have you tried out any of these shades? Which is your favourite?
