The freeeeeeezing weather really makes you start embracing the berry tones doesn’t it? I will not deny I love reds and burgundies but I’m not normally one for a lipstick in the darker tones unless it’s a balm or stain. I decided it was time to branch out and embrace what everyone else seems to wear all the time.
I recently wrote about the most beautiful Taylor Swift red lip product from MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer range, at the same time I picked up Firecracker which definitely fits the bill of a dark berry colour:
The Lip Lacquer is just like the NYX Lip Lingeries in that it is a liquid lipstick type product, and very pigmented. It’s easy to apply and with a bit of practice a good clean line can be created.
I’ve been wearing it on weekends and as I mentioned in my other review I’ve been pretty impressed with the pigmentation and staying power. It does crack but for a £3 lip product I really don’t see any issue with reapplying this and who doesn’t reapply after food/drink anyway?!
I’m definitely coming around to wearing these shades and I’d like to get a lipstick in a more moisturising format so I can wear it without reapplying all the time.
What do you think about darker lip products like this? Do you feel confident wearing them at all times? I’m definitely a weekend only kind of girl, but hopefully i will get used to them soon as I really like the colour.
Have you tried the MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer? What were your thoughts?
