MUA LUXE Lip Lacquer reviews ( makeup haul continued) pt2

Hey guys , time for the lip lacquers! So the three i have chosen from the collection are 'Zest' , 'Spry' and 'Kooky'. The reason why i wanted to try these shades where because two of them are not the  typical everyday colors (apart from the nude, Spry), so for all those adventurous people out there i had given them a shot and was surprise with the results!

Break down of the product-

Packaging :

The lip lacquers come in a glass tube which is nice and durable, as well as with a gold lid which had the company name printed on it.

Formula and application :

As for the formula me and my sister were shocked as to how pigmented the colour was as well as it being so cheap the quality i have to say is amazing! The texture is smooth, however the website does state that because it drys matte and when it does it can "emphasizes your flaws on the lips" it is best to exfoliate and apply a lip balm which we suggest as that is what we had done. Moreover what we had noticed was with the brighter shades such as 'Zest' and 'Kooky' is is best to apply a lip liner just to help make the application easier, as with dark shades it is a nightmare to remove if you make a mistake which we had alot of!

However although the lacquer drys matte which is great, it is so hard to take off which can be a good or bad  thing as it does last long as i wore it to work and did not reapply for 7 hours and it still looked good. Lastly on the application you only need one layer which is fantastic as i hate having to build up texture on the lips which then becomes grainy later on.


The smell however i think let the product down, just because when my sister had wore it she began to get a head ache as it was strong for her. As for me i was fine. The smell is like sweet like candy i would say, which is fine for some but for those who do not like fragrances it might be a bit too much to handle wearing it at first, however for me the smell fades once it drys.

Now the price i was impressed with, they retail for £3.00 each and i believe on there website right now they are having a offer for the whole collection for £18.00 ( which does not include 'Zest' and 'spry' )

Swatches of the following: 



Overall thoughts: 

Overall i would say for the price this is a great product, it is long lasting which is great aswell as it being "smudge proof" as the website states which i believe is true as it took a while trying to take it off! Also the thing i love most about the product is that it is so pigmented compared to other products i have seen which cost way more than this lip lacquer. The only thing that i would have a problem with is the smell which i do not think is for everyone as it is strong and as i said my sister did have a headache after wards. Mentioning that i would buy this product again and try more of the dark colours which look gorgeous on as in the photos shown and for the price it is a bargain!

Gerard cosmetics lipstick reviews (makeup haul continued) pt1

Hey there, so for my first makeup haul review i will be starting with Gerard cosmetics. I personally am new to the brand and have heard many great reviews on there lip products.So was excited to try out some of there lipsticks.
Break down of the product    

Packaging :

The lipstick comes in a gorgeous gold casing in the shape of i believe a bullet, which is similar if not the same as the mac lipsticks, with the brand name printed on it. Although the casing is made i  would of expected it to be more durable.

Formula + application  :  

The lipstick when i applied it to my sister was very smooth and creamy which we all love in a lipstick as i hate when my lips become dry and cracked. The color i think was good, not too bright however i would of liked it to be a little more pigmented for the price , however it does say that the shades may vary on different skin tones. Moreover the formula is light on the lips and does not feel tacky as my sister described.

Smell :

The smell of the lipsticks to me and my sister is like some sort of toffee, so for those who do not like scented lipsticks then it might not be for you as the smell is quite strong.

Price : 

Retails for £12.50 each ($19) , however Gerard cosmetics have many deals and coupons going so look out for them!

Swatches of the following -



Overall thoughts : 

Overall i would say that the formula is really nice, it is creamy and has a sheer to matte finish as i noticed her lips were not cracking from the lack of moisture.  Although the packaging if i was being picky could be improve to something
more durable. More over the product does not claim to last long by any means however i did expect it to last on her for quite a long time due to the brand, but it did begin to fade around the corners! Which i am guessing you can expect with many lipsticks after eating and drinking throughout the day. For the price i would say there are many drug store products that i have used which have lasted longer and are highly pigmentation. Would i be purchasing the lipsticks again? maybe if there were deals going on as they are pretty and creamy but not as long lasting as i would like.
