MUA is a really great value cosmetics line exclusively sold in Superdrug stores, I must admit i did have a bit of snobbery about the brand as i was a bit like urgh well its so cheap its going to be naff..wrong Zoe ! i was pleasantly surprised. The First thing i bought from the brand was the Heaven and Earth eyeshadow pallet and i loved using it and thought the quality was good for the price.
I have heard a bit about the new Lip Booms as MUA designed them with the Xfactor Star Alexandra Burke, so when i was in superdrug last i decided to get myself one i picked it up in the shade OMG this shade stuck out the most for me i just loved the pinky coral colour its just beautiful on especially in summer with a tan!
I cant believe how much i actually like wearing this it even has a half decent smell to it kind of a vanilla / caramel smell ..again as it was so cheap i thought it would smell like plastic and little girls makeup .. never judge a book by its cover Zoe!
With the Lip Boom it is a 4 in 1 product and it states that you can use it in the following ways
- Lipstick alone for a matte look
- Lipstick with the highlighter applied to the centre of the lips for a full volume illusion
- Lipstick with highlighter all over for a glossy look
- The highlighter alone for a sheer pearl finish
|L-R Lipstick, Highlighter and a single pot of the lipstick (this was on the end of the lipstick not sure why, no good to put in your bag on its on as it has no lid)|
Here it is on
|In a room with natural Light T-B Lipstick with highlighter, Lipstick, Highlighter|
|Normal light T-B lipstick with highlighter, Lipstick , Highlighter|
Personally i don't really like wearing lip glosses i prefer lipsticks, but if i was changing this look from day to night i would add the highlighter to the middle of my lips maby for a fuller effect, but with out a doubt the lipstick is the best bit about this product as i found the highlighter to be a bit gritty on my lips :(.
The Lipstick glides on smoothly and lasts a good few hours too I'm now considering trying another shade, recommendations anyone?
They are £3 each which is fab and you can get them in 7 more shades too.
