MUA Make Up Academy Lipstick Nectar, Shade 16 Review, Swatch, LOTD
Hello Everyone, Today I am going to review a lipstick that has been gifted to my by my beautiful blogger friend “Heena” from “Vanity Case Box“. I have a lust towards orange-coral shades and when I saw this on her blog, i added it to my wish list. On the contrary, Heena didn’t liked the shade much and offered it to me.. wooohhoo!! 😀 😀 . Thank you again for this lovely gift Heena.. this has become my first MUA lipstick 🙂 . It took me really long to write this review but better late than never, so let’s find out if MUA Lipstick in Nectar worked for me or not.
- Girls, there is nothing better than lipstick. Apart from maybe lipstick that costs just £1! Ok definitely lipstick that costs just £1. Don’t say we’re not good to you.
- Our amazing lipsticks come in 16 shades from red to pink and nude and are packed full of pigmentation.
- With just one swipe you’ll have fantastic colour pay off resulting in gorgeous lips!
- Why not pick a shade you’ve not tried before and get a new look? It is just £1 after all…did we already mention that?

My experience with MUA Makeup Academy Lipstick – Nectar:-
Nectar is a bright cool toned orangey coral shade with soft peachy tones and isn’t like those bold orange lip colors. The color needs to be paired with well prepared skin and oodles of Peachy/Coral blush to save the face or you will look pale and sick. The color wouldn’t work for medium-dusky complexion due to lighter undertones and may look washed out but it makes flattering coral lip color for fair skinned ladies.
The lipstick has a creamy texture which slips on lips easily but it doesn’t cover the lips evenly and give slightly patchy application. It’s suggested to prepare lips well before application as the formula may freckle on dry and chapped lips giving a terrible finish. The pigmentation is quite average too and I need at least 2-3 swipes of the lipstick to get an even, opaque coverage on the lips.
The lipstick has a crème finish as the formula is devoid of any shimmers or pearly sheen. The formula isn’t as buttery as Maybelline Moisture Extremes and feels lighter on lips just like lip balms but it transfers like anything and wouldn’t survive meals.

Pros of MUA Makeup Academy Lipstick – Nectar:-
- Beautiful Orange-Coral shade
- Creamy texture
- Glides smoothly on lips
- Medium Color pay off
- Affordably priced
- Tiny pot at the bottom revealing lipstick shade
Cons of MUA Makeup Academy Lipstick – Nectar:-
- Isn’t available easily in India
- Better finish over exfoliated lips
- Need 2-3 swipe for complete coverage
- Transfers easily
- Doesn’t last long due to its buttery formula
Recommendation:- MUA Makeup Academy Lipstick in Nectar is a pretty orangey coral shade (More orange than pink) which will work nicely with an orangey blush and heavily Kohled or deep smokey eye look perfectly. The formula however isnt great as it doesn’t give smooth finish and need multiple swipes to build color coverage but at this price tag I couldn’t have asked for more.
It is not a must have shade but if you love Orange/coral shade this would make a great lipstick. 🙂
