Fashionista Double Take Lipsticks: Coral and Ultra Pink

Fashionista are a brand that I don't have that much knowledge of but, a good few months ago now, it seems they became a part of MUA's collection and all products got seriously discounted. I've had these two lipsticks for a while now and bought them for £1.50 instead of the original price of £7.00 from MUA's website.

The colours I bought were Coral and Ultra Pink and are from the Double Take range which claim to be creamy, fully pigmented, matte, hydrating and leave a velvety smooth finish. They have more shades within the range and also another lipstick range called Maxi-Moisture which also sell for £1.50.

Both of these lipsticks smell absolutely amazing and are really similar to Mac with that vanilla cupcake candle sort of scent but with the smell lingering for a good while longer. The shape of the lipstick is quite slanted which makes application a whole lot easier and I have a tend to basically smoosh lipsticks into some unknown shape so this handy for me as I can't do that. Hey y'all let us rejoice. The lipsticks feel so smooth on the lips, like they claim to be, and so are really comfortable to wear but also manage to be long lasting, how you do dat?! I would say when first applied the finish is quite glossy and feels somewhat like a lip balm but as wear time goes on they become more matte.

Coral Shade 7 is a coral (I feel like a moron for pointing out the obvious) that leans more orange in colour and is fairly bright. This would be classed as more of a Summer shade by most people but could be worn during any time of the year and still look noiiiice.

Ultra Pink Shade 10 takes a bit longer to build up on the lips in my opinion but then becomes fully pigmented after a few swipes. It's a bright pink shade but because of the initial glossiness it takes off the edge of the colour and so may be a good option if you want to try brighter lipsticks but don't want the full on intensity.

I love having these lipsticks in my collection because of their texture and the fact that they are so affordable making it even better. Have you tried anything from Fashionista?
