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?
