MUA Lip Switch Duo Review ♥

Hey beaut's!

I was recently having a browse at all the pretty makeup in Superdrug and decided to pick up a couple of lip products from the MUA stand, I haven't actually bought anything from MUA in a while but was taken in by a couple of their pretty new releases so I thought I'd treat myself to a bargain or two he he. The first thing I saw that I knew I just had to buy was their Lip Switch Duo in Persian Plum, the shade looked right up my street and the concept looked rather good too.
The Lip Switch Duo contains a moisturising matte lipstick on one end and a gloss to match the lipstick shade on the other, personally I think this is a great idea as it allows you to create a multitude of looks all in one, you can either wear the lipstick or the gloss on their own or you can layer them up together for an evening, glossy look. Their are six shade's in the Lip Switch Duo collection to collect ranging from light nude/coral/pink shades to darker red/plum shades, there's definitely a shade for everyone in the collection but I decided on 'Persain Plum', a gorgeous dark purple/plum shade, plums and berry shades are my absolute favourites and even though we are now in Spring I do still like to rock those darker shades in the evenings as I think they look super pretty.

The formula of the Lip Switch Duo is rather nice and was totally different to what I expected, the matte lipstick has a good amount of pigmentation and is actually very creamy and doesn't drag on the lips during application at all, once on the lips it isn't drying and has a slight moisturising feeling to it which is very different to your typical matte lipstick because usually they are very drying. The lasting power of the lipstick worn alone is quite good, it's lasts on me around 4 hours but it does wear off when I eat on drink so sometimes the wear time differs. The lip gloss formula surprised me too, I was expecting a gloopy, sticky gloss but instead it's actually very pleasant and not sticky at all, I do find when you wear the gloss and the lipstick together it does lessen the wear time, and sometimes the lip glosses doe foot applicator can swipe off some of the matte lipstick during application so that is something to look out for. The lipstick nore the lip gloss have a scent or taste, not that I can detect anyway, sometimes I prefer this because I can be abit sensitive when it comes to perfumed products.
Overall I do really like MUA's Lip Switch Duo, I think it's a great concept and even though I'm not a huge lip gloss lover it's always nice to have the option of wearing a matching gloss isn't it. I have worn the matte lipstick alot on its own and really do love it, I'd love to get the red shade that's in the collection because it looks gorgeous and so glam.

The Lip Switch Duo's are £3.00 each in Superdrug however I've noticed that on the MUA website they are currently half price at just £1.50 each, what a bargain!

Have you tried any of the MUA Lip Switch Duo's?? What did you think?? I'd love to know!!
