Onto Day 26 (Also a name of an old band created by P.Diddy) in November of my #30daysofred and its a super, bright, lipstick today for those who want to get their lips noticed!
It goes without saying I own a multitude of red lipsticks, in fact I could probably have done 60 days and not 30 in this #30daysofred if I had wanted to for this challenge. However, this lipstick today is the most vibrant of the bunch without a doubt! Let me introduce you to MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in Atomic.
Admittedly when it comes to matte formulas there are a few on the market. This lip lacquer has some plus points, but also some minus ones too. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with the formula, so let me explain. Without a doubt this is a gorgeous matte. Its lovely and creamy, super pigmented and once its on your lips it doesn’t budge easily. Add to that it has a sponge applicator, it makes application pretty easy and it looks good on too. So, I guess you are wondering what the down side is then? Well, I find this one really drying. And as it can also be hard to shift (Even with wipes and makeup remover), it also can hurt my lips a little when I want to get it off. Still, its whether you decide if the pluses out way the minuses with this one as its pretty impressive!
Atomic is a VERY bright orange red. I would still class this as a red, but it does sit very near the orange spectrum in some lights. This lipstick screams, ‘LOOK AT ME!!’ Without a doubt I do get some looks when wearing this one and it certainly is eye catching – in a good way! Add to that it wears well and doesn’t transfer and its definitely a great lipstick to test out if you can, especially as its budget friendly too!
Lots of Love,
