Have you ever tried a makeup product so disappointing that you don’t know where to be livid or just cry? Me neither, until today.
In case you haven’t noticed liquid lipsticks are the “thing” right now in the makeup world. When I noticed that MUA had come at my local CVS for only $9.50 I figured it wouldn’t hurt to give one a try. Honestly how bad could it be?
The MUA liquid lipstick came in a very chic and study plastic packaging with a clear container so you can see the actual color of the lipstick. I love how high end and expensive it looks. The applicator had a skinny brush tip that was a little stiff. A few of the brush hairs were splayed when I opened it the first time but nothing horrible. Thats about where anything, good, decent, or acceptable ends with this product.
The consistency of the liquid lipstick is VERY thick. It felt like I was putting concealer on my lips. I thought the brush applicator would make the application easier but once again I was so wrong. The lipstick went on streaky and uneven and it was almost impossible to use the brush to help smooth it out. It dried quickly but was still kind of sticky at the same time and started to crumble off my lips almost immediately. The lipstick had probably been on my lips less than a minute in the picture below.
Look at that cracking and crumbling and was barely moving my mouth at all trying to let the product dry down.
Then I had the brilliant idea to rub my lips together to try to even it out because it was still just a little tacky.
THE END RESULT
WHAT IN MAKEUP HELL IS THIS?!?
so much NO!
The color from the top lip literally all flaked off to the bottom lip which just looks like a crumbly crackly mess. I tried using it on two separate occasions and had the same results both times. I’m pretty sure this is the worst lip product I have ever tried.
