MUA Lip Lacquers: Tranquility, Aflush, Serene & Halcyon Review ♥

02 July 2014

Hello!


1

At the end of last year, MUA brought out their new Luxe range which included five new gorgeous lip lacquers. I managed to pick myself two of them up and reviewed them much to my disappointment. I was expecting great things from these lacquers but I was a little upset at how they crumbled and ended up being a right mess but although I felt this way about them, the little child in me got excited at the news that MUA were releasing four new shades for the summer!

 First off, of course I would get a nice lovely spot right next to my mouth the morning before I plan to take these photos so please ignore that! :)

This one is my favourite! ♥ It's a very nude colour but with a hint of brown which is why I think it's perfect to wear in the day or out to work if you need something that will last without much touching up. I can tell I'll be using this one a lot more than the others.

I do like Aflush but I do think it's a bit bright when applied. I'm not normally a fan of brighter colours and I do tend to stick to nudes/neutral colours more but there is something about this shade that I am drawn to. I think it's a perfect shade for the summer and I will try and wear it on a least a few occasions!

This is probably my second favourite shade of them all as it's once again more of a day shade but could also be used for the night. It's more brown compared to Tranquility and I really think it suits me. It looks like it has pink tones on the swatch and in the bottle but when applied, I couldn't really tell that much.

I really don't like this colour at all as I think it's far too light. I don't think I'd ever have a need to wear a lipstick this colour even if it was for fancy dress! I know some people do like lighter shades on the lips but it really isn't for me. It didn't apply easy and I found you could see the lines from the strokes and I ended up adding more product onto my lips. It was a disaster!


I'm not sure if they've changed their formulas but I enjoyed these four a lot more than Funk and Reckless from the previous range. They lasted a lot longer and they didn't feel dry on my lips. I've already worn Tranquility and Halcyon out already and it was about 5-6 hours before it started to crumble and needed re-applying. 

I would definitely recommend trying these new shades as for me, they're more wearable on a day to day basis than the older range. I'm very boring when it comes to wearing lipstick, I buy all these bright and beautiful colours but never actually wear them and both Tranquility and Halcyon seem perfect for me! I will try and work in wearing Aflush over the summer but I will never wear Serene which is a shame!

I managed to pick all four shades up from Superdrug for £12 (£3 each!)
