MUA Purchases: lipstick 6,7 and Hot Lips swatches

I heard about MUA  a while ago but I thought...it's so cheap...it can't be that good right?! Oh how I was wrong...after reading numerous blog posts I had a little spending spree online..
Some is for a future giveaway and some for a swap I'm doing!

Here's what I got for me..
 I'll do posts about the nail polishes and how they look on nails soon!
So first of all I got the 'Hot Lips' lip balm from the Love hearts collection. This cost £2.00 for 10g
I have rather pigmented lips so I decided to choose the darkest coloured lip balm out of the five and this one is gorgeous! In the pot it looks like a  gorgeous berry pink and smells like vanilla. (I adore vanilla scents!) On my lips it gives a nice berry pink tint and is moisturising.
Next the lipsticks..
I love that you can take off the little ends and there's some lipstick in them, not sure if this was intentional or not as I couldn't get it off the other lipstick.
I got lipstick shades 6 and 7 they were £1.00 each. (Not sure why there's a difference in size hmm)

 However 6 was a mistake, I originally ordered number 11 which looked like a lovely nude, I was excited to try it as I lack nude lipsticks in my collection but I was sent the wrong one.
But no worries Shade 6 turns out to thankfully be a pretty mistake, it's a nice pinky colour, quiet like MAC's Hot Gossip! Hot gossip to me has more purple undertones where as 6 does not making it a lighter pink with shimmer.
Shade 7 is a nice coral (my first coral lipstick!!) which also has a little shimmer. I normally don't like shimmery make up at all but with these lipstick's you can barley notice it, it just adds a little depth.

I wouldn't say the lipsticks are entirely on par with MAC's £13.50 lipsticks but damn their pretty good for a £1.00.. moisturising, pigmented, simple classy packaging and nicely scented...what more could you want?! I will be trying some more MUA in the future for sure... as so far I'm super impressed!
You can get your hands on these products from Superdrug or MUA site who ship internationally too.
Have you tried MUA? What is your favourite product so far?..
