Hello readers, today I will be reviewing yet another MUA makeup product named MUA Lipstick Trio – Temptress. I am just in love with MUA makeup products and I can’t resist myself from buying more and more MUA products. I have already reviewed MUA Lass Boom Mascara, MUA Cream Blusher Lush and Dolly and now it comes a lipstick trio from MUA. MUA makeup products are affordable and are now easily available online at Jabong.com with exciting discount offers.
Packaging : It comes in a round box and three lipsticks shades are placed nicely on a black plastic plate. It comes with a see through flip open lid and MUA Makeup Academy is written with silver letters on the top of the cap. Double sided sponge applicator brush is also provided with the trio. You need to press a little black button given at the side, to open the cap.
My Experience : This is my first ever lipstick palette and I am really enjoying this product. I bought the MUA Lipstick Trio in shade Temptress which contains reds & coral shades. All the three shades look similar but are unique in their own way. All three shades have creamy texture and thus glide very smoothly on lips. These lip color are highly pigmented and have satiny finish. The first shade in the palette is coral red, second one is deep red and third one is again deep red color but it contains shimmer in it. You can use either your finger or lip brush to apply these colors. Only a little is required to get a nice lip gloss kind of finish and shades can be easily build-able for bolder look. I think it is not fare to call it a lipstick trio but I found it is in-between lipstick and gloss.
Coral Red : This is my most favorite shade in the palette and has a beautiful coral color (sometimes I use to call this as a tomato color).
Deep Red : It is a nice dark reddish shade with glossy finish and I like this shade.
Deep Red with Shimmer : It is again deep red color but it contains shimmer in it. This shade is more on maroon side.
All the three shades look similar but they give different finish when used on lips. These lip colors are highly hydrating and I don’t felt the need to apply lip balm underneath. Ladies with dry lips gonna love these lip colors as they are very moisturizing. These shades are completely odorless, this is one more reason why I am liking them so much. These colors stay on my lips for more than 3 hours and fades even after that leaving a hint of color on lips. Lipstick shades do settle in fine-lines if you have extremely dry lips. I advise to use lip-liner for precise application, otherwise the colors might bleed from corners. To be honest the brush provided with this trio is of no use, so you can use your favorite lip brush to apply colors. These colors transfer easily on cups/glasses while drinking water/tea. I think ladies with pigmented lips will not like this lipstick trio as it is not very effective in hiding pigmentation. Being a lip gloss lover, I am enjoying to flaunt these shades, as these are lightweight, non-sticky and have nice glossy finish.
