Budget Beauty Series - MUA And One Direction - Kiss You Lipstick - Moments

I normally leave it until the end of the month before I show you the things that I've bought, and whilst it's not far off, I just had to do a post on something that I've acquired and loved.

Yeah a lipstick, not just any lipstick thought, this is a lipstick from MUA Make Up Academy's collaboration with boy band of the moment One Direction. I'm far to old for all of this boyband nonsense, I've heard a few of their songs and they aren't bad but I wouldn't say I was a fan by a long shot - when your old enough to be their mother it's a bit hard to see the attraction been, there done that and all that jazz - lol. So the line didn't appeal to me in that respect but when I saw some swatches I was a little more eager to get my hands on some of the products. I've had a little bit of a search but eventually I managed to get my hands on a couple of things, my mum paid so I just got two things a nail polish which you'll see in my monthly haul post and one of the lipsticks.

I chose the lipstick purely on colour not on band member so the colour I went for was Moments, which is Niall's for those of you who are that way inclined ;) The lipstick casing features a printed signature.

and the lipstick itself features an Embossed 1D logo and embossed o's and x's, which stand for hugs and kisses maybe?

All that is pretty irrelevant for me so what attracted me to this lipstick was the colour. It's the perfect, neutral pink with just a bit of warmth.

I'm pretty rubbish at describing colours but this lipstick has been my go to since I got it at the start of the month, believe it or not I've actually used nearly half of it already. It's a bit brighter than what I'd normally wear on a daily basis, but that's pretty much exactly what I've done. It brightens my face and it just seems to go with anything.

I love this lipstick so much, and for just £3 it's great value for money. The One Direction link won't appeal to some people, but try to see beyond  it and see the range for what it is, fab products at a great price. If your a Directioner (see I got the lingo ;) though or the parent of one then I think its great that the line is so affordable although probably not so much if your being pestered into buying it all I guess :) I'm definitely going to have a little look at the rest of the lipsticks and I definitely want to try the Oh My Glow Cheek Tints. This line isn't available in the MUA website (odd?) but it is available in selected Superdrug's, and on their website. Have you tried anything from the MUA / One Direction range yet? let me know in the comments xx


  1. I was against buying anything from this collection since I'm not a fan of one direction either but that colour is gorgeous xx

    1. Thanks Jodie, It's so pretty isn't it x I think the 1D link seems to have put a lot of people off lol

  2. This shade is gorgeous. I'm not really a fan of One Direction but I'll definitely be looking for this tomorrow when I go into town! Such a good price too xx
