It is a lovely bright red shade.

In Detail MUA Makeup Academy Lipstick Shade 13 Review and My Experience
The lipstick comes in a classic MUA packaging which is a black plastic body. There is a small pot of lipstick at the bottom which can be unscrewed. This serves the purpose of reference as well as can be used in case you want to apply the lipstick with a brush to line your lips first. This way, you don’t have to spoil the contour of the lipstick bullet by applying a brush over it.
Texture and Formula
The lipstick has a very soft and creamy texture. It glides on the lipstick very easily. It has a fairly moisturising formula however, I would advice my ladies to scrub the lips before application as this has a tendency to slightly settle into fine lines. Also, if over applied, it may show a little bleeding.
MUA Lipstick shade 13 and pigmentation
This particular shade is a very nice bright tomato red shade with slight orange undertones to it. Great for beginners who are just stepping into the world of red lipsticks. The lipstick has a moderate pigmentation. It does look like its giving a single swipe opaque coverage but with a single swipe, this wears off very quickly. So I apply some 2 to 3 swipes which gives me a lovely pigmentation and makes the lipstick last longer.
The staying power of this lipstick is approximately 2.5 to 3 hours after which it starts to fade. If the lips are dry, this fades with some patches. It does transfer quite a bit so with meals, the stay time would be even shorter. Upon fading, this leaves a little stain which can be well taken out by a decent makeup remover.
This is a great lipstick for beginners. Also if you are looking for a short wear time. The best thing about this lipstick is the price which is super inexpensive (if only it were available in India at that price). Besides some shortcomings, I would say this is a gorgeous lipstick shade and would suit all skin tones. The shade lifts up and brightens the skin tone. It can be worn by ladies of all ages and I am pretty sure that this gorgeous shade will be loved by all equally.

1. Scrubbing the lips before applying the lipstick gives an amazing finish and a longer wear time.
2. Line the lips with a brush using the pigment provided in the pot before applying, it would give better results.
3. Keep the lipstick in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight because this might melt because of its creamy formula.
(Lovely product at the most economical price 🙂 )
