MUA Lipstick trio - Review & Swatches

MUA Lipstick Trio- Scarlet

Happy belated Eid Ul Fitr Mubarik to all the Muslims around the globe. I hope you all had a lovely Eid with your family and friends. I was super busy with Eid preparations and then with the festivities of the day that I couldn't get in touch you guys. So now everything being back to its place calls for reviews and all other blogging stuff to continue. Today I have The MakeUp Academy's Lipstick Trio in Scarlet. Has this cute little thing won my heart over ? Keep reading to know more about it.

MUA Lipstick Trio -Scarlet:

"Pucker up with Spring with new MUA Lip Trios.

MUA Lip Trio provides the visual effect of a stain with the comfort and sheen of a lip gloss. The long-term colour with a satin, balmy finish leaves the look of effortless polish and understated sophistication. "

My Thoughts :


This little lipstick trio comes 3 different shades .I got mine in Scarlet which has 3 pans of beautifully complimenting colors, a Bright Fuchsia, a light fresh Pink and a Coral. The packaging is quite  basic with a clear lid and a sort of push button to unlock it which is a good point because you dont have to worry about it opening in your purse and making a mess. The packaging is not much sturdy and might break on heavy impact to better take care of it . It comes with a double end sponge applicator with one end as broad eye applicator and other pointed one. Though the applicator is kind of useless , I am still trying to make it work somehow. 

The colors are nicely pigmented. They show up a little lighter then the pan on lips but can be easily layered up to get more color. One swipe is enough to cover both lips nicely. The finish is glossy just like lip glosses (that's what the product claims to do). in staying power is just average , not something like a stain would last a good 4-5 hours without eating and 2-3 hours with eating. This hardly lasts 2-3 hours on me without eating and vanishes after eating so I need to touch up after each munching. But for a person like me who carries just one lippie or gloss in her bag just for the sake of not rummaging when need be, this is a perfect thing to carry and touch up .

Rating:

I would give it a 3/5 . Only if it had a useful applicator and a longer staying power it would definilty be in my favorites list !
