My Experience with MUA Lipstick- Shade 1


The packaging is standard. The product comes in a black retractable stick applicator. There is a lipstick bullet along with a tiny transparent container at the bottom with the same lipstick which shows the shade. It can use to line the lips with a lip brush.

Colour & Texture

The color is a deep red. It is opaque, one swipe does the job. This shade would suit all skin tones. It is of creamy consistency with a glossy finish. It is smooth in texture and does not dry out the lips. The lipstick is buildable. Applying a few coats would blend in together.


This lipstick is much pigmented. It is a darker shade of red. It leaves a gorgeous stain after. The color stays on for quite a while, later touch up is required.


When it comes to red lipstick I like dark red shades. This shade does its magic on all skin tones. It is of a creamy consistency and stays on lips for 2-3hours. I like the stained look, so I apply two coats of lipstick and blot it with tissue. This leaves a gorgeous stain. It has a mild fragrance. The color may bleed. It is recommended to use a similar color lip liner to avoid smearing. Overall, the lipstick is good.

What do I like about this lipstick?
  1. Highly pigmented
  2. Creamy consistency
  3. Easy application container
  4. Glides on smoothly
  5. Easy to carry
  6. Does not dry out the lips


What I dislike about this lipstick?
  1. Not for an everyday look
  2. Transfers easily
  3. Does not stay for long
  4. Applying few coats makes it super glossy
  5. Not easily available offline

Would I Repurchase or Recommend?

Yes, I would recommend this product. If you like dark lips and stained looks go for it. But if you prefer matte finished lipsticks or long-lasting ones, this product is not for you.
I would like to repurchase this very lipstick in a different shade.

The shade is quite dark and glossy! The stay power and transferability makes it a no for me. Well written article ??
