MUA Lipstick: Shade 7: Review/Swatch/FOTD

As much as I love my bright bold lipsticks, there are days when I like to opt for a simple fresh look and a subtle lipstick would be my ideal choice for such a look (read TIRED, LACK OF TIME AND LAZINESS!! :P). And when I placed an order for MUA lipsticks I randomly picked numbers from the list (some MUA lipsticks have shade numbers) and one of them happened to be Shade 7, which perfectly fits the description above. 

 


Price£1 for 3.8g
 
 
 
Color: Shade 7 is a coral pink color. It has silver glitter particles which doesn’t look chunky and out of place when applied. When applied on the lips, the color looks a lot more pink than I imagined because it looks more of a coral when swatched on the hand. 
 
 
 
When I first swatched the shade I thought maybe the color and the very very slight yellow undertone might not suit me but I was absolutely wrong! The color adapts to your lips and looks more pink or coral according to your skin tone so I would safely say this would suit all skin tones. This is the kind of color that would look good for any occasion at any time of the day. 
 
 
 
 
The color glides on smoothly and there is a good amount of coverage in the first swipe. It does not make the lips dry or feel heavy and uncomfortable, nor does it settle in the fine lines. The 1 GBP lipsticks by MUA, I must say, are some of the best in the drugstore, in terms of texture and that too at a price like that! 
 
What I like the most is the compact small transparent pot that can be unscrewed from the bottom which contains lipstick in addition to the lipstick in the tube. Apparently this is to ensure convenient touch-ups which I find to be a fabulous idea! I can see myself slyly taking some and touching up at a restaurant without anyone noticing! 😛 And if not anything, it serves the purpose of identifying the color of the lipstick when the rest of the tube is glossy black in color! 
 
 
 
 
The lipstick stays on for about 3 hours (and this time includes snacking and a sip of water every hour)and then I find that one or two glitter particles are left behind. The color fades away completely after 3 and a half hours and that definitely calls for reapplication. 
 
 
In the picture below, I used a mix of Sleek Mirrored Pink and VIVO Baked Blush Rouge Shimmer and brushed it on my cheeks with a very very light hand. That combination works really well with this lipstick. If you want a more prominent color on your cheeks then go for a pink or coral depending on how the lipstick looks on you. 
 


Final Word: Highly recommended! Such a color works for a day and night look and is extremely versatile! MUA lipsticks are worth much more than the price it comes for. So I would say, if you have a chance stock up on these!!
