#91 MUA Lipstick - Shade 4.

These last few days have been pure and utter shit and the reason behind my blogging break. Yesterday my boyfriends sister sadly lost her battle with cancer at the age of 17. I don't think it has still really hit me and at the moment my emotions are all over the place and all I'm focusing on is making sure I'm fully supporting him and being there for him. As it is all so raw I'm not going to do a blog post until I'm ready as I think it is so important that we are all fully aware of cancer. Those that can fight it and beat it are the real heroes, the people which we should look up to. But in spite of all the recent events Amba will forever be my idol. She is the most amazing, brave young girl I have met and I feel so privileged to have known her.
 So to keep me busy today I have been writting some long awaited posts. A while back I purchased some MUA Lipsticks as they were buy 2 get 1 free, and when they're already £1 each it would be rude to say no! MUA is a brilliant brand if you can get a hold of it in your local Superdrug as when you feel like you need a little retail therapy for a pick me up and don't really have the funds you can spend as little as £1 and come away with a great Lipstick, Lipgloss or Eyeshadow!

I have to admit that when you apply this Lipstick the pigment is awful. I had to apply several coats of this Lipstick and to me, a Lipstick shouldn't be like this. However, I did find it to be very moisturising and glossy which is perhaps why the pigment isn't as strong as a matte coloured Lipstick. I'm not really a Lipstick person but have recently been 'getting into them' and trying lots of different colours and brands. Through this I have found that I prefer more stonger, bolder colours which is why Shade 4 isn't for me. Although I managed to get a good picture of the colour in a good natural light, when it is darker there is hardly any colour visable. So this would not be the Lipstick which I would reach for on a night out. I think this product would be more suited to being more of a lip balm with a tint of colour and perfect for applying day to day. Sadly, this is just one MUA product which isn't for me and which I won't be repurchasing.
If you have Shade 4, what do you think about it?


  1. ohh my god, the news about your boyfriends sister is so so sad! I'm so sorry Hannah, just try and stay strong for him, big hugs!! Such a shame about the pigmentation of this but it does look like a nice hint of colour, I still haven't tried much from MUA, just their undressed palette xx

    1. Thank you so much Rachael, just the simplist of things mean the world! I'm just trying to stay positive and know that now she isn't suffering and can once again be peaceful. I LOVE MUA!! I aim to own every lipstick and test them all out :P Their palettes are also amazing!! xxx

  2. Oh my hun, I'm really sorry to hear about your boyfriends sister but like you said in the comment above at least she isn't suffering now :/ I am looking forward to your post on cancer because it is something everyone should be made aware of both my aunt and uncle were diagnosed (breast cancer and cancer of the throat) my aunt first and then my uncle after she had recovered.

    It sucks about the pigmentation of the lipstick as I find most of their shades are really great in terms of that, but I do like the subtle colour which would be good for everyday use :)


  3. So sorry to hear your sad news thinking of you all xo
