Happy Halloween! In case you haven’t noticed, today is quite possibly my favourite day of the year. I’ve had pumpkins carved for the past week, I spent yesterday enjoying ice cream eyeballs, and baking and icing multiple pumpkin loaves, and candy is all ready in buckets for marauding children tonight. Weirdly though, I’m not the biggest fan of getting costumed-up. I always just feel a bit weird in them, so instead, I’ve made a habit of just popping on a cute dress (in black of course) and vamping up my makeup.
MUA is making it super simple to darken up my normal look with their Velvet Lip Lacquers. I was kindly sent three of their spookiest shades – Flair was the first one which grabbed my attention. It’s a stunning blackened red shade which is just glamour personified.
For someone like me, who hasn’t really jumped on board the matte lip train quite yet, I was excited to give the formula a go, and I’ve been seriously impressed! The formula glides on, with real colour payoff, meaning lips are evenly coloured in a single swipe.
I thought that the texture of the Lip Lacquers would be heavy and tacky, but instead they just glide on, feeling incredibly lightweight. Firecracker is a rich, pink toned red which is absolutely stunning.
It’s a real glamour puss shade, which will look as pretty on a night out as it will during Halloween!
Last up is Potent, which is a rich charcoal. To say it’s far from my normal choice of lipstick is a bit of an understatement. On the lips it’s rich and deep, and incredibly vampy.
When wearing it, I do feel the need to wear a little extra under eye concealer, but it’s so fun to wear that it’s worth it!
MUA Velvet Lip Lacquers are priced at a teeny £3.00 each and available here.
