It’s beauty time here on She Hearts The High Street! You guys know I don’t talk about beauty too much on here, as it’s not necessarily my primary area of expertise, however, when I fall head over heels in love with a product, I just have to share- so here it goes! ‘Drugstore’ brand MUA have recently launched their Luxe London collection, and amongst the amazing, affordable beauty bits, are their Luxe London lipglosses- described as velvet lips. If I had to compare these to anything, I’d say they’re along the same lines as the YSL glossy stains. These are not budging once you’ve got them on, and fade really nicely to a light stain once the initial gloss has worn off. What’s more- they’re just £3 each!
Me being me, I picked the three most ostentatious colours! I absolutely adore a dark lip- yes, even in summer, so Kooky (the purple shade) and Reckless (the dark red) are gorgeous. Criminal (the bright pink) was a little out of my comfort zone but I wanted to give it a fair go. I think darker skin tones than mine would suit this colour better, as it does wash me out a little, so I wouldn’t say the pink was my favourite, but I can’t fault the formula on all three. I waited for Superdrug’s 3 for 2 to kick in so I could save myself £3 trying out the bright pink, and I’m so glad I did as I haven’t wasted the money now I’m not that keen.
The dark red and purple are far better on me and make gorgeous toppers for dark lipsticks. I love Reckless over Kate Moss for Rimmel’s 107 Wine (which is usually matte) and Kooky over Inglot’s 293 from their berry collection, they really compliment each other well. If you’d like to see these lipglosses ‘in person’ so to speak, then head over to my Youtube channel (here) where I recently uploaded an affordable make up haul (here) featuring these products!
That’s it for today’s beauty post, I hope it’ll help you make a decision on whether or not to pick up the MUA Luxe London velvet lipglosses! You can find all three lipglosses online here. Let me know if you’ve picked these up and your thoughts on them, just leave me a comment here or tweet me @MillieDelacoe. Until next time…
