MUA went quiet for a while, but they're back with some of my favourite releases to date. The Whipped Velvet and Sweet Sheen collections have just been released, with the Sweet Sheens priced at just £2 each, and the Whipped Velvet products at £3. I bought mine from Superdrug's website, rather than the brand's, because I also wanted some other bits and delivery was free.
I bought the MUA Sweet Sheen Lip Balms in Cherry Bomb and Coral Reef (£2). I've already worn these, and really like them (it's hard to mess up a tinted lip balm, to be fair). The colours are beautiful and shimmer free, they have a decent amount of pigment for a tinted lip balm, they're moisturising, and leave a glossy sheen. I may have to pick up the other shades!
I then added the MUA Luxe Whipped Velvet Blushes in Chichi, Ritzy, and Spry to my basket (£3). I swatched these this morning, and was pleasantly surprised. I thought they were going to be a really soft powder, but they're actually cream blushes which dry down to a velvet finish.
I also bought the MUA Luxe Whipped Velvet Lips in Chichi and Ritzy (£3). These remind me of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams and Collection Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Creams. Like the name suggests, they feel light, like they've been whipped, and have a soft velvet finish.
The Whipped Velvet collection also includes a pink (Rococo) and lilac (Hedonic). I really like the packaging - it's simple, but not as cheap looking as previous products, and I like the round blush pots more than the rectangular ones they have.
So far, these are my favourite products I've bought from the brand in a long while, but I'll be reviewing them in depth after I've used them a little more.
Will you be buying anything from the new collections?
