I LOVE THIS COLOUR, its one of my very favourites!! Its a pale but bright pink with LOTS OF GLITTER AND SPARKLE!! The glitter is silver and really pops out (as you can see in the swatch) and looks great on a night out!! I need to stock up on more of these! Its very long lasting and falls a little bit victim to food and drink! 2nd from right
I think these lipsticks are under rated seriously they are good stuff! I've got about 7 of them in different shades and they are quite pigmented for £1! Actually just in general. I wear shade 13 all the time, I'm on my third tube I use it so much, not to say they come off easily because they don't but I just use it everyday which is why I've had so many, but I do have to layer it to get my desired look which is maybe why. Also they are quite moisturising.
As you can see, Shade 13 is a very subtle shade of red 8D I am joking, of course, its the brightest red EVER!! Its a GREAT shade if you love punchy bright reds, this is only one swish with the stick!! Pops really nicely on pale skins and is the most long wearing out of all of them, even surviving the most with food and drink (though some fading occurs) Its still visible on my arm after rubbing it off for ten minutes!! 1st on the right
These are some of the best lipsticks I own, but the red is my favourite. I originally bought it because I didn't think red would suit me, and if I'd only spent £1 on a lipstick to try out it wouldn't be a huge loss. However I do like how this red looks on me, so much that I've tried other lipsticks in similar tones. But I always find myself going back to the same MUA shade. I love the formulation, it's creamy so not too drying, but no so creamy that it feels like it's going to go all over my face! It also has incredible staying power and for £1, you can't go wrong!
I love this shade! Its a very pale and pink glittery lipstick! When applied, it goes on nice and sheer, adding a very subtle pink colour and a punch of tiny silver flecks of glitter!! It is very pretty if you want a subtle glittery colour on your lips!! Fourth from left! If you want to see the full blog on these products, please ask!
This shade is lovely if you want a subtle pink sheen to your lips. This is a couple of applications and goes on your lips quite sheer, giving it a pink tint. Its very shiny and if you like subtle light pink lips, this is for you!! It has no glitter in it, but is a such a pretty and girly colour! Great if you want to wear something but don't want it to be too OUT THERE! This needs application a bit more than the darker shades. 3rd swatch from the left.

Shade 3 is a bright punchy pink! I love this shade for a pop of colour on my lips! It goes on nicely, and is very pigmented! Its quite shiny but not glittery and it has staying power, but same as most of them, it can fade while eating and drinking! Second swatch from the left!

Shade 10 is a great sheer darker shade if you just want a coating on your lips of colour, but don't want to much. Its a lovely dark rose colour and has a great sheen to it. Its brilliant for when you are on the go and just want to apply a quick coat, as it adds a nice sheer colour to your lips, good for work!! Its longevity is OKAAAY, but could be better, and doesn't stay on after eating and drinking! 3rd from right.
Shade 9 is a lovely rose coloured bronze lipstick! Its another great my lips but better colour and goes on a little sheer, but a nice pigmentation for what it is. Its a lovely shiny consistency. I haven't worn this one so much yet (I have over 21 lipsticks hur hur hur I don't rotate them as much as I should...) so I am not too sure on how long it lasts! 4th from left
This colour is a lovely deep rosey red colour and is good if you want quite a obvious colour on your lips, but still one that goes with your natural lip colour!! Its a great glittery shade too, with a good spread of golden flecks of glitter! This is a brilliant shade for going out, when you want a nice red with a bit extra, and those golden flecks add a lot to it! I do love this shade and wear it out even if I am not going any where special! It can be quite long lasting and slightly resistant to food and drink. 3rd from left
