I love lipsticks, especially pink lipsticks. Every time I go shopping, I always try to look for a pink shade to add to my collection. I know it's a silly obsession. Now I own so many pink lipsticks and MUA Makeup Academy Lipstick Shade 3 was the first bright pink lipstick I bought. It's also the first ever lipstick I got from MUA. Read on to know how this lipstick fared with me.

My Experience With MUA Makeup Academy Lipstick Shade 3:

MUA Makeup Academy Lipstick Shade 3 comes in a simple black lipstick packaging with the brand name written in silver. The shade number is mentioned on a sticker on the packaging. I wish MUA had named this lipstick instead of just giving it a number. I really like it when brands name their products. MUA lipsticks also have a small pot at the bottom, which has the product, just in case your lipstick gets over and u can't find the shade in store. It also helps in easy identification in case you own more than one shade from the same range. The cap shuts tightly. So all in all it's a simple and travel friendly packaging.

MUA Shade 3 is a bright blue toned pink. It will suit most Indian skin tones. The texture is really smooth and easy to apply. It feels really light weight on the lips. It settles into a semi matte finish. The pigmentation is amazing. I just need one swipe to cover my pigmented lips. The staying power is about 4 hours. Honestly, I don't keep much expectation from creamy lipsticks. It does transfer slightly but doesn't settle into fine lines and fades evenly.

Pros Of MUA Makeup Academy Lipstick Shade 3:
  • Travel friendly and simple packaging
  • Really affordable
  • Pretty bright pink color
  • Very light on the lips
  • Settles into a semi matte finish
  • Doesn't settle into fine lines
  • Pigmentation is superb
  • Will suit Indian skin tones really well

Cons Of MUA Makeup Academy Lipstick Shade 3:
  • Staying power is only 4 hours
  • Transfers a bit

Final Note:

MUA Make Up Academy has some really amazing products. I simply loved this £1 lipstick. I bought 4 more shades after using this bright pink lipstick. The pigmentation is really awesome. The staying power is not so good but I think you should give it a try. It's a lovely blue toned pink which would suit most Indian skin tones.
