MUA: Make up academy’s One direction lipsticks in ‘Moments: Niall’ and ‘Be Mine: Harry’ (Opinions of a non 1d fan)

Firstly, if you saw my post about having been to a+e the other day you’ll know I’ve been rather out of action for a bit. I’m still in a pretty bad way but trying to get this post done as I’m sure people will be pretty excited about these products. That said, I have ten or more other posts waiting to be done as I am so so behind so please bare with me, my posts are going to be delayed but they will happen at some point.

I was sceptical when MUA said they were releasing a One direction range. I’m Not a one direction fan, I’ve not liked pop music since I was about 13 and they’re pretty much against everything I like about music. But I Do like MUA and have been really impressed with a lot of their new releases this year so I was intrigued to see what they’d do.

When I ordered the cheek tints were out of stock on Superdrug so I was only able to get a couple of the lipsticks and I picked the beautiful deep red ‘Be Mine’ which is the Harry shade and  what looked to be the most neutral shade ‘Moments’ which is Niall’s shade.

When I first opened ‘Moments’ I was struck with how similar it looked to one of the MUA lipsticks that I already have and I was quite disappointed. Thankfully, upon swatching, it is rather different from the one I already have, yay!

Both of these shades are really highly pigmented and the formula feels thick and creamy. I’m really, really impressed with them. I like the MUA lipsticks I already have but these are an improvement even upon those.

I’m  not a one direction fan but I do love these lipsticks and can’t wait to wear them lots and lots. I really can’t wait to get my hands on one or two of the cheek tints, too, they look fantastic!

There’s some more new releases coming up from MUA soon and they’re really going to be worth keeping an eye out for so keep your eyes peeled!

    They look really good, I just can't bring myself to buy one direction products though. Hope you are better soon.

    They look great right. I think as long as you like the product that's all matters. People are too quick to judge thngs by the cover. I like 1D because I really love pop I'm a 90's kid the time of cheesy pop tunes 😛 however I tend to like some songs and not like others so it's the song I like rather then the artists not that I don't like artists I don't exactly know them so who am I to judge. However people like Jason derulo or Maroon 5, black eyed peas, lady gaga, rhianna they can do me know wrong with their choice of releasesxx

    I'm not a one direction fan at all, but picked up the Moments lipstick and a blush stick today and I'm very impressed! xx

    I'm a slight fan of one direction but I bought the cheek tints but went against the lipsticks for the reasons I thought they were too bright but looking at it now, I think I might have to pickup the Moments one when I go to Superdrug again.

    It's such a pretty shade isn't it!

    I think as long as we like the make-up the picture on it doesn't matter 🙂 xx
