MUA £1 Lipstick Shade 5


I have moaned previously that the only Superdrug in my area has a very limited stock of MUA products. I love this brand and I am desperate to try out all the range but only the £1 products are available in my local store. I popped in today and decided to pick up one of the £1 lipsticks. The shades don't have names but I chose shade 5. It's a very pale, shimmery pink. Almost sheer and looks like a lipgloss on but without that sticky feel. It's lovely and really summer.

The packaging is very basic, as you would expect from such a cheap product. Whilst having lunch with my boyfriend, he was fiddling with the packing and discovered that the bottom bit unscrews and to reveal a little pot of lip colour! I'm pretty sure I had one of these lipsticks before and never knew this! Clever boyfriend.


The colour isn't particularly long lasting but I don't mind applying my lip colour throughout the day. On the plus side, this isn't very drying on the lips and also applies nicely over Vaseline or lip balm. For £1 this is a real winner!

Did you know about the mini lip colour?!
