These are the two MUA Matte Lipsticks I picked up from Superdrug I think I would have picked up one of each shade had they even had stock in as they are super value at £1 each.
In the top left and bottom right are each of the tubes partially deconstructed by that I mean the colour at the end of the tubes of lipstick are the product. This is the first time I’ve seen or noticed this done and I think its a great idea when you can’t open the sealed lipstick but you an see what your getting. That bare in mind though when you swatch them they are sheer mattes as you can see compared with the Rimmel Kate Matte which is opaque. So it shows a dark colour with Wild Berry but in fact it’s nothing like it in use. The other image is to show because they are only a £1 the quality of the tube and how the lipstick is held in place is rubbish as pressure as you apply it bends the lipstick over so when you twist it back in you end up with the lines cut into the lipstick. It’s a cheap enough lipstick for this not to matter much in my opinion as you can easily replace it if you wanted to be fussy over the appearance after all it’s white plastick with silver writing.
At first test I wrote off Totally nude as it didn’t work well at first it’s almost like a coating over the lipstick you have to break to get to the colour. The actually texture is quite nice but it’s a matter a layering up the colour so takes a little longer to apply but means you can choose how light or dark you have it. That in mind the nude doesn’t suit me and washes my lip colour out but maybe would work on someone else.

This is a clear favourite and is not what I expect but is much more wearable and is buildable with a suprisingly even shade. This is easy to apply even for me and didn’t settle in the creases of my lips. I did put lip balm underneath but blotted just before adding the lipstick. I love the sheer berry stain it added and came between matte and a little satin in effect. I’m not sure how good wear time is but its easy to reapply without even having a mirror with you without having to worry about it.
