Happy Wednesday, today I want to talk about a makeup item I’ve been really enjoying lately. This is the MUA Super Stylo Satin Finish Lipstick, which I own in the shade ‘World Class‘. It’s a medium cool-toned pink, and as the name of the product implies, it has a satin finish. You can pick these up exclusively at Superdrug for £3.00 each, so they’re very affordable. This can easily be described as a chunky lip pencil, but very creamy and smooth like a lot of lipstick formulas.
The claims for this lipstick are fairly simple, and can be found on MUA’s website:
” Full coverage, soft & creamy satin lipstick. With a moisturising feel, this luxurious lipstick glides on with ease for a plush finish. “
It offers what a lot of us really want in an ideal lipstick: high pigmentation, creamy, comfortable and easy to use. I do think these claims are true, especially because the creamy nature of the formula makes it easy to apply.
The bullet itself is definitely on the chunkier side, so this might be too big if you have thin lips, or like a very precise lip look. However, I haven’t had this problem, but if you want more precision, a lip pencil will work nicely with this formula. You can also achieve a softer lip look if you prefer, by blotting with a tissue.
One thing that might be a turn off is that it isn’t a transfer-proof formula. I drink lots of tea through my day and do find evidence of transferring onto my cup. I don’t mind this, but that’s one of the consequences of the really creamy formula. I haven’t found that it bleeds outside my lips, but if you have the habit of rubbing your lips a lot, it is possible to rub the lip colour outside of your lip line that way.
On the lips, you can see that it’s very pigmented. As someone who is easily intimidated by bold or high coverage products, this is one that intimidates me a bit, but it’s also why I prefer to blot it down with a piece of tissue to make it a bit softer, yet still pigmented.
I find the colour does work nicely with my natural lips. I find a lot of lipsticks clash with my natural lip colour for dominance, but the pigmentation is so strong and consistent that I don’t have a problem with this product.
As it’s a pink shade, I do find it fades fairly gracefully, blending with my natural lip colour. The other bolder shades in the line probably won’t fade as gracefully, so that’s something to bear in mind. The formula is so moisturising and comfortable that I can reapply throughout the day and not feel like my lips are feeling chapped, dry or uncomfortable from the multiple layers of lip product.
This is a product I’d definitely repurchase, and I have contemplated getting more shades from this line. I do have a lot of lip products on the go though, so I’m exercising some restraint. But I think these are a great gateway lipstick for trying any of their shades, as they’re extremely affordable, and perform really well. ‘World Class‘ is one of my everyday shades when blotted down, so it’s one I expect to get a lot of use out of. I also think this is one of the year-round appropriate shades too.
If you’re interested in purchasing this specific shade, you can order it from Amazon for £4.99 using my *affiliate link*. You’re under no obligation to use this link, however it does support my blog if you do. It is more expensive than buying it directly in-store, so I encourage you to find it in-store if possible and save yourself the extra money.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog post, it means a lot to me to receive your support. I hope you are happy and healthy, and I’ll speak to you again soon.
