MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer - Kooky Review

Superdrug £3 (gift* thank you Johanna~ <3)
This is the lippy I mentioned in my most recent outfit post - Witch Vibes. My friend Johanna got this as we were conversing about the Lime Crime Velvetines; the Velvet Lip Lacquers pretty much seemed like a dupe. There are 10 shades in the range, the colour I will be reviewing is Kooky - a gorgeous dark vampy berry purple. Kooky also reminds me of MAC's Heroine.


Totally digging the frosted matte plastic packaging! The product is easy to apply; it appears like a lipgloss when you first apply it, once dried it turns into velvet matte finish. It takes a few minutes to completely dry, the product is quite heavy so during the drying time your lips will feel sticky. Don't let your lips touch together, otherwise the layer will be patchy and ruined. Sounds like a pain in the ass, but once you get past the drying stage, it's becomes smudge proof, waterproof and does not budge. Even whilst eating it still remains. To remove it, simply use makeup remover - it turns into little flakes when coming off. Although Kooky is dark, it does not leave any stains behind.

Taken whilst drying
It's highly pigmented, one dip in the tube is enough. The texture is slightly creamy. Like majority of matte lipsticks and lip lacquers, you'll have a dry feeling on your lips. So make sure to scrub your lips and moisturise with balm before hand. Overall a good product regardless of the sticky drying time. It makes me want to try out Lime Crime Velvetines even more! >.<
