Shade 3 looks like a bright and bold blue-toned pink in the tube but is actually semi-sheer when applied. It has silver glitter particles which is visible on application. It is definitely a blue-toned pink but not as strong as it looks in the tube.
This particular lipstick from the MUA range reminds me of those semi-sheer creamy lipsticks which have a glossy finish when applied. The color is definitely buildable, no doubt. The color lasted on me for 4 hours and then I had to reapply since there was a slight hint of color (like a stain) which was uneven.
In the picture above (tutorial for this look here), I’ve applied the lipstick with a light hand and also used it as a a blush.
If you were given the option of naming this lipstick what would it be? Numbers are boring!!
