MUA MakeUp Academy Matte Lipstick Wild Berry

Hi there!Today I’ve got another lipstick to review. It’s MUA MakeUp Academy Matte Lipstick Wild Berry. I’ve previously reviewed a matte lipstick from MUA – and I wasn’t impressed. And unfortunately today’s review isn’t a positive one either. Now let me tell you why I’ve already binned this lipstick.

First of all, I don’t like how the lipstick applies and how it feels on my lips. The formula is thick and waxy, the colour doesn’t transfer well onto the lips, and the lipstick feels drying and sticky at the same time.

I also don’t love the colour. It looks like a dark berry colour in the bullet. But it’s a fuchsia / plum shade on the lips. The colour pay-off isn’t that great either. I’ve got a white spot on my bottom lip (it’s just a lack of pigment). Most lipsticks cover this small area easily, so it was quite a disappointment that this lipstick didn’t.

All in all, I think this isn’t a good lipstick. I know the reviews about it are mixed – lots of people seem to love MUA’s matte lippies (I really don’t get it), but just as many don’t. I compare every matte lipstick to UNE’s brilliant matte lipsticks (they feel like velvet, but they’re matte). And based on that comparison I’d be flattering MUA’s Wild Berry lipstick if I were to say it’s ‘below average’…

MUA MakeUp Academy Matte Lipstick in Wild Berry is available for £1 (Superdrug, MUA online store).

  1. It’s really difficult to find a great matte lippie. They do have a tendency to get dry and cracky. I’m glad that you reviewed this. Although we don’t get MUA cosmetics here in the States, if I see them in my travels, I’ll be sure to avoid the brand’s matte lipsticks. Thank you!
