This is the second Lipstick Log here on Fangirls and Foundations now, I know it has been quite some time since the first post in this series but I've finally got around to making a second- and there are still plenty more to come! Today I'll be telling you my thoughts on MUA Matte Lipstick in the shade Lilac Belle (although, you probably already gathered that from the title)...
I know a lot of people have compared this shade to Lime Crime lipstick or other, but I don't have any so I can't compare. However what I can tell you is that this little treasure only costs £1 from Superdrug so its easy to find and easy to afford - round of applause for that. Lime Crime products aren't the most student-budget-friendly and can take a while to arrive here in the UK so I'll be loyal to MUA for the time being.
I know a lot of cheap matte lip products can flake and dry your lips but I've not suffered with that ball ache with this lipstick.
The only down sides are that it can feather and cling around dry patches but that has only happened when my lips are super duper dry. On top of that the formula is a little on the waxy side meaning I have to layer to build up pigment and its really hard to over-draw your lips.
Other than that, this lipstick lasts for hours and it's a pretty unusual colour to find from a cheap high street brand. Fantastic product and it costs, well, naff all really. Bloody Brilliant! 4/5
Thanks! Alex x
