REVIEW: Make Up Academy Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer

Hey guys! I’m back for another review, still lipstick huh? Well I will be reviewing some of my foundations and/or bb creams I have on my stash soon. I asked on my fanpage if some of you are interested, me making a review about them.

So okay, today is just another lipstick review. This one is very popular, I’ve been waiting for this new product from MUA last January 2014, I think? I ordered these babies for the past months, together with other MUA products, and other bloggers made a pre-order as well. Each tube costs, $5 each or 3 pounds. Very affordable! And yes, this is a dupe for Limecrime Velvetines, can’t imagine buying that product, gladly MUA made a dupe product. So yeah, I really don’t like, buying lipstick around ($13) 500+ pesos above, that’s why I haven’t tried any Mac lipsticks up to now, but hopefully when I get a nice job with higher pay lol!

This is how it looks like, I really like the packaging of this product, oh yes, sorry I already removed the boxes, and these 2 photos above are taken long time ago. πŸ™‚

Mua Luxe Velvet Lipstick Swatches_Funk_Reckless_Atomic
Swatches of the 3 shades I’ve got, they have 5 shades before, didn’t get the Kooky, and Criminal. Kooky is a plum color, which I’m dying to get now lol, why would I didn’t get that in the first place?! And Criminal is just the same color of Funk, but the lightest one. As of now, they’ve added 4 new shades, which are nude ones! Thinking of getting Halcyon or A Flush lol.

This baby is an orange-y color, as you can see lol. They are really pigmented, just one dab from the tube and you can fill your whole lips.

I was afraid to try red lipstick before because I’m afraid that I can’t pull it off. But I noticed that, I become more matured looking when wearing the red ones, what do you think? And oh, my boyfriend doesn’t like me wearing dark red lippies haha! But this one passed! πŸ˜›

PROS:

  • Long lasting!
  • Great packaging
  • Very pigmented
  • No smell? I mean it does have a smell, but I think its not disturbing just a normal scent of a lipstick
  • Affordable! $5 each!
  • 8 shades available from Nude to Pink, Red – Plum

CONS:

  • It transfer! Specially if you eat oily foods!
  • Doesn’t like the texture upon applying, it’s very thick!
  • When you apply lip balm, the lipstick transfer, when you smack your lips
  • Not available locally

Make Up Academy Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer FAIL
Here’s an example photo, I made an experiment since, I’m wondering why is it like that when I smack my lips the lipstick goes down to my lower lip lol. So, I tried not to apply a lip balm, and voila! The lipstick stays put on its place. So the tip is, this is not like the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams, that you have to apply lip balms first, so it won’t dry your lips. Well this MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer, doesn’t need that anymore, the finish is still the same.

So I think that’s it, if you think I missed anything on this review, kindly comment down below, so I can answer your questions about this product. πŸ™‚ Don’t forget to rate this post!

SHOP FEATURE: Glasseslit.com Sells Affordable Eyeglasses

Hey guys, I know some of you are curious on how I bought these new eyeglasses. And I know that, you are afraid to try, me as well, but before I try to buy something, I will make sure that the store is 100% legit! How did I find out? A teenager posted a video about Glasseslit.com, actually I found them through Facebook, you know the sponsored post thing? That time, I was actually looking for a new pair of eyeglasses, because the one I got from Firmoo, was really horrible it drops off of my face, especially when your t zone is really oily the eyeglasses itself falls off. And I was really irritated. Ok, not a hater of Firmoo here, but they are my sponsor since 2012. The time when they sending free eyeglasses to bloggers.. I had a lot of effort for that eyeglasses, because someone from their team emailed me on having a giveaway with my blog, then she will give me 50% off voucher and it is free shipping. So I grab the chance, since I need to change my eyeglasses. And I even went to Pasay just to get them from CMEC, which is very far from my place.. But naahh, the frame I bought was really horrible, I throw it somewhere on this house, and I go back on using my old eyeglasses which is from Firmoo as well.

Thank God, I found Glasseslit.com, I was too shock that they sell affordable eyeglasses! I didn’t hesitate to try them, after seeing the video of that girl, that they are 100% legit! πŸ™‚

And each eyeglasses are on their respective cases, and they are on this ziplock and comes along with this tiny philips screw (don’t know if that’s how you called it, I only had one, because I gave the other one to a friend from Postal Office). Okay sorry that does not how it looks like, I already used them before the product shoot haha! I’m excited! Yeah!

Okay, before you avail the $1 + $1 Eyeglasses, you have to buy any other eyeglasses on their store. At first I thought there was an error, since my instinct is bugging mehhh, I tried to add this eyeglasses first that is worth $15. Then went over to the sale, and poof! I can now avail the $1 eyeglasses. πŸ™‚

Glasseslit Eyeglasses design
Actually I fell in love at a first glance on this eyeglasses, I think this is not the one I wanted, but their staff said that the one I picked was, been sold out. And I remember upon browsing, there’s this something similar, so I changed to this one instead. Upon seeing it for the first time, I was too shocked that, the frame is sooo small! Not like the usual frame that I always got, rectangular ones. πŸ™‚

This is how the design looks like, actually they have different colors for this! But of course, white frame is a good looking one for me.

There they are! I’m actually changing eyeglasses, when I feel like it, some thing my boyfriend talks about. Why am I changing eyeglasses every time? Haha!

I’ve posted this, so you guys can buy a very affordable eyeglasses. They usually send it through EMS, but I requested them not to use EMS but to use a different courier, I don’t know which courier they send my eyeglasses, because I wanted the product to get to the nearest Postal Office, because products that are sent through EMS now are subject to customs check, like what happened to my last eyeglasses. Anyways, if you are asking how many days before I got the eyeglasses. They’ve sent it under Standard Shipping, send it last July 30, 2014,Β Enroute to delivery office, Philippines, last August 13, 2014. So it takes 2 weeks, til the package arrives here in our country. I only got it last week since, I’m keeping my notices before I visit the Postal Office. πŸ™‚
