MUA Lipstick Trios in Siren and Temptress // Review

These beauties are one of MUAs latest launches and I knew from the moment they were released that I wanted to try them so you can imagine my excitement when these two shades came through my letterbox!

I'm a big lip product fan now and these are perfect for me to experiment with colour, especially reds as it is a colour I'm definitely not confident enough to wear just yet! I've found MUAs lip products to be generally quite good, I'm a big fan of their intense kisses glosses so I expected good things from these.

Sorry it is such a picture heavy post, I wanted to swatch them all and show you them on my lips!





Siren* has a lovely mixture of colours in it, ranging from a peachy nude to a berry shade! I can see this one being popular, I know I'm certainly a fan of the shades, I've found the berry colour to be really wearable as well. It isn't a shade I'd usually go for but I really love it!


Temptress* is the perfect trio for all of you red lipstick lovers out there! Admittedly the 3 colours do look quite similar here but on the lips you can see a difference with shade 1 being slightly lighter than shade 2 and shade 3 has more shimmer in it and is a bit deeper in colour.







To apply these I usually use my Real Techniques detailer brush because it is the perfect size to use as a lip brush to get a clean edge on my lips but then I'll usually go over it using my finger as I found these can be a little patchy when just using a lip brush. I think this might be because the product is really creamy, it took a while for me to get my technique right but when I did they looked beautiful! 

As you can see these are nicely pigmented, even the nude shade in Siren has a decent amount of colour to it! I really wasn't expecting them to be this pigmented as they are only £2.50 each, can you believe it?

I found they started to fade after about 2 hours of wear, they are in-between a lipstick and a lipgloss so I'm pretty happy with this time, it is easy to reapply as well, I just use my finger! I've said this a million times before as well but I don't mind reapplying lip products so unless the wear time is super bad I'm usually happy :) And you can always change the shade you wear, perfect for going from a day time look to a night time look!

I found these did feel a little drying on my lips after an hour but I just gently pat on a little lip balm or reapply a thin layer and it is all better! I was a bit disappointment with this though.

One thing that does confuse me about these is that it comes with a sponge tip applicator? Now I don't know about you or MUA but I don't use sponge applicators to apply my lipstick! A mini lip brush would have been more appropriate, no?

Overall I do really love these trios, for only £2.50 they are pretty fantastic!

You can purchase them in selected superdrug stores for only £2.50 or online at muastore.co.uk

  3. Think I may have to get these! I think MUA said that the applicator is perfect for applying this product as it gets the most product rather than other lip brushes :)

    1. I haven't heard much about them tbh either but at only £2.50 you can buy them all and it still won't cost as much as a MAC lipstick! xx
