MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer - Funk Review and Swatches

I think by now you must all know about my obsession with velvet. When the Lime Crime Velvetines came out I desperately wanted one, but alas they were out of my budget. I was really excited when MUA brought theirs out but decided not to get one after seeing some not so positive reviews.

However, I was recommended them on twitter and so I decided to give them a go, and I'm really glad I did!

First of all, I love the frosted glass packaging, it definitely looks more than a £3 product. It's very elegant and cool, and something I'd be proud to take out of my makeup bag.

The shade I got is Funk, which is a bold pink. They claim it glides on like a gloss and leave a matte velvety finish.

I found that the velvet lip lacquer did glide on very smoothly and evenly. It's like a thick matte gloss meaning that you have time to work with it before it dries. It also didn't cling to any dry patches. After a minute or two it does dry down to a smooth velvety finish, you can tell it's on your lips but it isn't a heavy product. It doesn't transfer or smudge around your lips once it's dried. It lasted a few hours on me, and then wore off when I ate. It wore off quite evenly, there were no patches left.


On the lips it's slightly lighter than a medium pink, but not quite barbie pink. It has quite a neon look so I think it would suit all skintones.

Overall, I was really impressed with the product for the price, and would love to pick up more shades! You can get it here for £3.

I hope you enjoyed this post! 
Have you ever tried the MUA Luxe Velvet lacquers, or do you want to?

  1. Love the shade, personally always go for pinks. It's great that it's long lasting and fades evenly, especially for the price! X

  6. that's actually quite nice and very pigmented! Unfortunately, I'm not that into lip gloss.. I'm very lazy, you see, so I prefer creamy lipsticks that gives out a bit of shine on its own :)

    1. It is! They don't feel like a lipgloss at all! Once it's dried it feels more like a matte lipstick, you might like it :) xx

    1. Same here, I've found that some shades tend to crumble but some aren't so bad :)

  12. Love the MUA lip lacquer. I agree the packaging looks so much more expensive. Will have a look if they have a nude shade. x

    1. For some reason I think the packaging looks quite edgy, it's quite different to what's out there too :)
