New from MUA - Whipped Velvet Lips and Pout Prime - review and swatches


MUA have a series of new collections for spring and they couldn't have come at a better time.  I think February's that turning point where you've definitely had enough of winter - Christmas is forgotten and we're longing for those lighter nights and sunny days!  The MUA Luxe Whipped Velvet lips certainly have me in the spring mood with five pretty, soft shades and a lovely light texture.  Get-on-my-face.



All five shades of the Whipped Velvet Lips apply really smoothly and easily.  They give an almost opaque coverage which you can build, and they're not at all drying on the lips.  I found that they wear for a good few comfy hours before you need to reapply.  My favourite colour at the moment is ritzy, which is a strawberry shade, but I'm sure I'll be on to the paler rococo and hedonic as I shake winter off that little bit more. I'm really impressed with the quality of these, and they're only £3 each.

Also new to the MUA Luxe range are five Whipped Velvet blushes with a similar light, whipped texture.  They come in the same five shades, so you can totally coordinate your lips and cheeks.  They're also £3 each, and the coral shade - chichi - has immediately landed on my wish list.  

Another new launch for MUA this spring is Pout Prime which looks like a chubby white pencil.  It's a cross between a lip balm and a primer which you can apply to your lips before the Whipped velvets, or before any other lip colour, to give you a smooth base and to help colour last.  I really like this for making my lips look like they're in better condition as I always suffer with some dry, flakiness in the winter, and it can make some lipsticks (especially matte ones) look terrible on me!  For £3 Pout Prime sorts that out, and it also helps to prevent any bleeding and feathering of dark lip colours.  

All of these new launches are available now at muastore.co.uk

  4. Ritzy looks like a gorgeous shade, and the Pout Prime will be a must for me! MUA look like they've got some great new releases at the moment, hopefully Superdrug will actually stock their shelves up with them!

  8. These look like fab new releases, i'm quite fancying 'Spry' and i'd definitely buy the primer to go with it because like yours, my lips have a tendency to be all dry and weird with any kind of matte lip product, I do have a primer on the end of a Jemma Kidd lippy which I tend to use with matte products but it'd be even more convenient to have one on its own
