BEAUTY: MUA Lipstick Shade's 2 & 8

I recently bought two MUA lipsticks which I've fallen in love with so I thought I would share them with you, however the photo's really don't do them justice so you'll just have to take my word that they're really pretty.
I'm sure you're all aware of the MUA brand now and I have a small collection of their makeup already, they're super affordable and I find all the products that I've tried to be really great quality especially given that none of the products I own from them have cost me above £4!
The lipsticks cost £1 each which is pretty bloody great, the only slightly annoying thing its that the vast majority of the lipsticks don't have names just numbers but what I do like about the packaging is that there's a dot of colour of the bottom so I can easily find the colour I want when delving into my massive makeup bag.

Shade 2 is a lovely purpley pink colour and it applies like a dream it's super smooth and doesn't feel drying in the slightest. It didn't photograph great but it's a lovely colour and I'm really glad I picked it up. Obviously for £1 it's not the longest lasting lipstick but I'm not complaining as I don't mind reapplying it when it's such a bargain!

Shade 8 is one of the prettiest colours in really life, it's a deep reddy pink with gold shimmer, before you recoil in horror I can tell you it doesn't feel gritty on your lips at all and it doesn't look tacky in the slightest it just provides a subtle festive sparkle that I think looks really flattering and pretty and it's perfect for Christmas! Again it's not long lasting, but seen as it's a little bit darker than shade 2 it does last a little longer. It applies perfectly and again it doesn't dry out my lips or show up dry patches. This is my favourite lipstick at the moment.

I have to say I'm so impressed with these two lipsticks, I couldn't really ask for anything better for £1 and they're perfect colours for this time of the year.
