MUA Lipstick Haul

Now that summer is hopefully here I'm totally feeling lipstick. So last week, just after payday i began the search for the perfect shade. I spent a stupidly long time on the MAC website looking for 'the' one but without having a counter nearby I was weary in spending a small fortune on something I may not like /might not suit me. 

So... i decided to look for cheaper alternatives and came across the MUA website. I was so surprised at the prices... £1 for a lippy- bargain. Being this price means if I don't like it then it's not the end of the world. With that in mind bought 6! Free postage and packaging too!























 The lipsticks turned up about 4 days after ordering and I immediately wanted to try them all out!I prepped all of the lippy's take pictures and swatches of then realised that none of the lipstick tubes have any indication of which shade they are... only on the lids... massive error of mine! Rather than me guessing from the swatch pictures and getting it wrong I think I'll do an overall post on the lippys. All I know is that i ordered- 

shade 1
Shade 2
shade 7
shade 11
shade 14
shade 15

I was worried that due to them being cheap as chips they wouldn't be great quality but my goodness I was wrong to make that assumption, they are all so creamy and moisturising.  Some of the shades I got aren't the most wearable in the daytime but I think I love all of them!

The packaging is lovely, I like to keep things simple, plus the sneaky little tub of product on the top is a bonus. My only complaint is the lack of numbering on each tube... I can't believe this has been missed!

The pigmentation of the majority of shades is good, for most only one sweep is needed to provide a full and glossy cover. They also taste rather good too!

I'd recommend these to girlies who aren't quite sure where to begin with lippy,just like me! Once you've found your fav shade then maybe it will help when looking for a more expensive brand?

I'm planning on next week doing a week (well 6 days) of MUA lipstick on my instagram @hollylucyhp so you can see each shade teamed up with outfits etc!

Does the number thing irritate you? What do you think of the shades I've picked?
