MUA matte lipstick in Scarlet Siren: Review and Swatches

 if we look at makeup only 2 things have probably never gone out of fashion, a winged liner and a classical red lip. No matter how much I love eye makeup I can never ever ever ignore the power of a red lip. I have so many red lipsticks and still whenever i see a red, I jump onto it!

 Because I have a neutral undertone I can go for both type of reds, the one with blue undertone and the one with yellow undertone *yay*
Although I personally prefer the one with blue undertone,so without any further ado, let's introduce today's product to you all!

It is one of my most favourite lipstick,MUA's matte lipstick in Scarlet Siren, ooh! I love that name! *extra brownie points*

The packaging is sleek,white with a silver band and a shade coded plastic at the bottom to make the identification easier. The plastic is sturdy and hence is travel friendly too!

Let's come to the pigmentation, the lipstick is highly pigmented and true colour shows up on single application only,layering it just makes it better.
The upper swatch is 2 swipes while the lower one is 1 swipe!

The texture is what I have slight issues with because it is not that smooth, although mattes never are, but this still could be better. proper exfoliation is a must! And yes layer up a lip balm too!

The lipstick stays easily on my lips for about 4-5 hours after which it starts to settle into fine lines.

 There is no ingredient list though, only this is mentioned.

Quantity: 3.8 grams

Price: £ 1.50 (equal to Rs 150)

Nice Packaging
Beautiful Colour

Staying power is not that much
Can chap lips
Texture is not smooth enough.

 Here are some more lip swatches:

Overall I think it is the colour I love more than any other factors of this lipstick. Go for this only if you can't find this shade in better quality.
