MUA’s new ranges – pastel nail polish & Power Pout

| 2 Comments

I took advantage of Superdrug’s 3-for-2 offer last week and snapped up a couple of MUA items that I’ve had my eye on – including a new pastel pink polish and a couple of MUA lipsticks. I hardly ever buy anything different for myself, and I really struggled to choose a make up treat this time (I spent an hour in the shop, seriously!), but when it’s MUA at least I don’t feel so guilty because it’s so cheap!

First of all I tried out the nail polish in shade “Natural Days” for only  £1, which is such a lovely colour in the bottle but unfortunately it took at least 4 coats to get the same strength of colour on my nails because the polish was so thin. The bottle looks a bit like the Essie nail polishes, so it looks swish and I thought it’d be good, but it’s just too much effort to paint 4 coats every time, so I’ll probably not wear it much in the future – only when I want to make a special effort!

The two lipsticks that I bought were MUA  £1 standard lippy in shade 15 “Juicy” which is a cute peach colour. Again I liked the colour, but the application let it down – it went on kind of clumpy and chalky so it was kind of thick in some places and thin in others. I found that it looks best if I smudge a little on with my finger rather than apply straight from the stick. I’ve also tried it on my cheeks and that looked pretty, so even if I don’t wear it much, I’m happy with it for only a quid!

MUA lipstick and power pout tint balm in rendezvous

And finally is the best product I’ve used in a long time – the new MUA version of the chubby stick – it’s called Power Pout ‘colour intense tint and balm’. I chose shade “rendezvous”, which is a totally different colour on my lips than the packaging would suggest. It’s not at all nudey/brown, it’s more of a flattering peachy-rose and it’s really a creamy texture – it’s got beeswax in it, so it really does feel like a balm. But unlike a balm, the colour stays for ages and even though it’s east to apply, I don’t need to touch it up much when I’m wearing it. I loved this product – slightly more expensive at  £3 – and it’s been in my handbag ever since.
