MUA Luxe Whipped Velvet Lips

 I picked up one of the new MUA Luxe Whipped Velvet Lips from Superdrug recently, after stumbling across them accidentally whilst perusing the isles of the drugstore. I must admit I hadn't heard anything about them before my purchase but after some research I now understand that that they are part of new Spring 2015 release by MUA.

MUA have released a total of 5 new Luxe Whipped Velvet lips,each retailing for £3.00 each. They are described by the brand as 'luxurious', 'ultra soft'and a way to add a 'subtle pop of colour', as well as a 'super smooth new formulation that won't dry out your lips ensuring you have the perfect pout at all times'. 

From the shade selection I picked the shade SPRY. A muted brown with a hint of rose to give that perfect 'your lips but better' colour. From the 5 shades available it was the only on that stood out to me and the only shade I felt like I would get wear out of. The other shades in general were rather light for my liking and looked generally unwearable for my skintone.
MUA Luxe Whipped Velvet Lips SPRY
On first swatch the texture of SPRY instantly reminded me of a long time favourite,the Collection Cream Puff, with a even creamier feel but less pigmentation. SPRY has a very velvety (as the name suggests!) moose like texture that glides on to lips, leaving them feeling soft and hydrated. The Whipped Velvets are not as pigmented as the Collection cream puffs,but they are buildable proving a decent, even cover. Throughout the day, dry patches can be accentuated if your lips haven't been exfoliated prior to application and I do find that the product doesn't have great lasting power, leading to frequent re application, but for £3.00 a pop I think that can be forgiven!

I'm really enjoying using SPRY as an everyday lip colour as it's a no fuss, low maintenance lip shade with a hydrating formula making it perfect for everyday wear.

I really hope MUA bring out a better selection of shades that are more wearable like SPRY because I'm  completely sold on the formulation of these! I highly recommend them, another winner from MUA! 

Let me know what you think!
