MUA Lipstick Trio in Scarlet

Apologies for yet another post on a lip product, but this is a new release from MUA and I thought I'd share my first impressions. I picked this up as I had a few points on my Superdrug beauty card, but it retails for £2.50 from Superdrug or
As this is described as a lipstick trio I was excited to get it, I find it really hard to finish a full tube of lipstick as I have so many...I definitely have issues. However, I thought as this trio has three smaller pots itd be nice to travel with as well as giving 3 colour options. The packaging isn't the most sturdy but this is to be expected for the price you pay. Also the applicator is the same sponge tip as you get in many eyeshadow compacts, which is a tad confusing, I don't know why it's even included for lip products.
I haven't worn these colours yet, I've only swatched them. My trio is in the shade scarlet, although there's not a red in sight, what you get are three glossy colours- a pink, a darker pink and a very pale pink. I would describe these more as tinted lip balms or glosses, there's definitely not enough pigment for these to warrant the title "lipstick trio". That being said, there's still some payoff and if you're afraid of darker colours and getting them everywhere these are perfect. Because they are more balm/gloss-like they can easily be applied with your fingers on the go. I will chuck this in my handbag for top ups during the day or to apply over lipstick, so whilst the payoff isn't as strong as I had expected I will still use this little pallette. Have you tried these? Thanks for reading, Love Steph xxx


  1. I find when I have lip palettes they don't get as much use as my normal lipsticks for some reason. Not sure these would show up on my lips but they look nice and balmy :)

  2. Looks good for travelling :) Oh and it takes dedication to finish a lipstick, I've just finished my first!
