MUA Lipstick Shade 7 | Review & Swatches

MUA Lipstick Shade 7

When I first stumbled upon MUA the brand was very unfamiliar to me. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to try the brand. I was getting a few things from a friend in UK and looking at the price I decided to give the brand a try. Hey, at £1.00 even if it is bad there isn’t much to complain. So I picked up a couple of shades and now I have a rather nice collection of MUA lipstick – one lipstick from this range is MUA Lipstick Shade 7.

My Experience with MUA Lipstick Shade 7

MUA lipstick in Shade 7 is a frosty pinkish peach. The lipstick comes in a simple no fuzz plastic packing. While the packing isn’t a looker, it is convenient to use. The top of the lipstick has a small removable compartment, which has a bit of the same shade. This also makes it easy to spot the lipstick. While the shade is very pretty, it did wash out on my NC 43.5 skin tone. This shade would absolutely look great on fairer skin tones.

MUA lipstick in Shade 7 is fairly pigmented buildable to medium coverage, however if you have heavily pigmented lips your lip colour might show through. The lipstick has a sort of bubblegum fragrance; while the fragrance isn’t mild it isn’t strong either. Moreover the smell doesn’t linger. The lipstick feels good to use. It feels light, my lips feel moisturized, it doesn’t settle into fine lines. However, I have noticed that with this shade it is slightly tricky getting an even finish. The lipstick lasts around 2-3 hours. But I am not going complain at this cost. MUA lipsticks are definitely cheaper if bought in the UK. In India these are priced around 500 bucks, a steep increase from £1.00. If you have friends or relatives coming back from the UK do add MUA lipsticks in your shopping list, I am sure you will love it.

    1. Thanks Sonali. This was a shade I was finding very hard to photograph. And like you mentioned the price difference is so high. Wish they were cheaper.

    1. I wouldn’t say it’s average. At less than INR 100 this is a nice lipstick. The only issue like you mentioned is that it is better if bought abroad.

    1. The shade is pretty. But I don’t like how it comes out on me. Frosty finishes don’t seem to work well with my skin tone.
