Worth it? MUA Lip Booms Review

Did you have a good bank holiday weekend? The weather could've been a bit nicer; saying that, it could always be a bit nicer! Anyway today MUA launched their new Lip Booms in Superdrug. I'm sure you've heard all about them already. I have the shades Doin Good and Cheeky to show you.
Firstly, the packaging. I actually quite like it. Simple yet tells you all the information you need to know about the product. The Lip Booms come a double ended tube which are easy to use. Like with the normal MUA lipsticks, they come with a little pot of lipstick on the bottom. I wasn't sure if this was for use as when i tried it the consistency was all rubbery. I asked MUA what it was for and they said it was to show the true colour of the lipstick and not nessicarily for use. It's a nice extra to the product, just a shame it's unusable.
MUA Lip Boom in  Doin Good - a dark pink with a brown undertone.

Top - Doin Good, below Cheeky Swatches.

Cheeky - a bright but pale shade of pink, suits darker skintones.

The lipsticks are really pigmented, very impressed! The lipgloss is a bit gritty but personally doesn't bother me.It 'salso really sparkly so I use it sparingly. The lipstick on it's own gives a matte finish.

One fault with the product is that the Lip Booms are held in place to the packaging by sellotape. Unfortunately this leaves that annoying sticky stuff you can see in the photograph above. It's such a nightmare to get off! But I can't really fault the performance of the product.

As these are the first MUA lip products I've tried, I definitely feel more confident to try more. I don't think I would repurchase any other Lip booms simply because none of the other colours really appeal to me - but I've got my eye on a few of there normal lipsticks!

If your already a fan of MUA and their lip products, I think you'll like these too! Even if you dislike Alexandra Burke, don't let that put you off trying them out. Not bad for £3!

  1. Lovely shades especially the light pink! :) xxxx


  2. I love MUA's lipsticks! Especially shade 10 :)
    These lip booms are a good idea, but I probably wouldn't buy any of them!
    Oh and to get the sticky stuff off, just use a little bit of nail varnish remover and a cotton pad :)

  3. I have two of these, in cheeky and OMG. Although I haven't used them yet. I had the same issue with the packaging! It really annoyed me, it spoiled it xo
