MUA // Lip Boom in Cheeky

As most of us know, MUA and Alexandra Burke have collaborated and designed the all new 'Lip Booms'. At the moment nothing on the high street can compare. Alex herself has chosen the 8 shades for this 4 in 1 lip stick and highlighting gloss duo. The purpose of the highlighting gloss is to create fuller, curvaceous looking lips and will be a SS12 product every UK beauty blogger will want, regardless of if you're a fan of Alex or not. You can always remove the packaging. The highlighting gloss can be worn alone, over the lipstick - completely, centre or cupids bow, which happens to be my favourite way!
How I got on:
Packaging: is okay, for an item that costs £3, you can't complain. I've had no problems with it, the product seems sturdy, both ends. And comes with a little 'pot' of lipstick at the end of the actual lipstick. All are clearly named. I love the shade names, no numbers, as I always forget what shades I have with most of the MUA products.
Lipstick: Wearing the lipstick on it's own gives a matte look, something that when you get dry lips like me can be off putting, but it's nothing extra conditioning before can't fix and they haven't made my lips any dryer. I love this pale pink/barbie-ish pink shade. Wearing the cheeky lip boom created a lot of compliments. The wear of this lipstick lasted around 4-5 hours. Shopping, drinking and eating. I'm always a fan of MUA lipsticks.
Highlighter: I prefer to use it on my cupids bow and extending a bit. I'm not a fan of the highlighter in the centre of my lips. A light application at the top works best for me and looks great in person. An all over gloss can work okay for the evening, however in the day, I wouldn't. The gloss itself is great, but it reduces the wear time by half when worn together, for £3 you can afford to reapply. I haven't found the gloss to be so gritty as others have found, since I apply mine mostly to the top of my lip/cupids bow. They taste great of vanilla and aren't sticky.

Will you be trying these out? I'll be buying more!

  4. Interested to swatch these if they have them in store, from what I have seen so far they are pretty good I might bypass the gloss though for the lippy alone!

  7. I haven't tried these because I thought it was just a normal lippy. I love lip gloss so the highlighter would be perfect for me! That shade is very pretty! X
