MUA – Lip Booms are a four in one product created by Alexandra Burke. Whether you’re a fan of her or not, you can still find yourself loving them. They come in a variety of shades, eight. Being pale I’m always weary of the colours I wear, however I’ve stepped out my comfort zone and started loving so many bright and bold shades this month, my drawer of lip products is now over flowing. Lip Booms are a lip stick with an accompanying lip gloss to be used as a highlighter. The highlighting gloss is incredibly glittery however helps give you that extra volume to your lips. The shade reviewed today for Glitzy Queen is LMK, one of the trickiest colours I’ve found to wear and photograph. I’ve already reviewed Cheeky, a barbie pink & Doin’ Good on my blog, Lucyywrites. Lip Booms retail at £3 each, an absolute bargain. Pick yours up from any Superdrug or MUA’s website.
As Lip Booms are a 4 in 1 product, you can wear the gloss alone, all over the lipstick, the lipstick on its own, or you use it to just highlight. I prefer to highlight the top of my lip/cupids bow. Colour can be built up. I haven’t really worn this colour, it scares me a little, however looks a lot nicer in person. I’ve stayed away from using the glitter. It looks horrid to me with the highlighter, but that’s just my opinion and usage.
Easy to travel with and easy to store. The packaging is very sturdy for the little price of £3 and I like it. They’re super easy to store and take up less room than two separate products. The little pot of product at the bottom of the lipstick end is secure.
Every Lip Boom comes with a small pot of product at the bottom of the lipstick. Just use a lip brush to apply. They have a great range of shades and I really do like this shade, despite it scaring me before I tried, it does actually suit pale skin, however not an every day colour. They’re incredibly cheap for two products, or three if you count the little pot. I love the taste of Lip Booms, if you’re a fan of vanilla you will too and they don’t even dry your lips.
Gloss is extremely glittery and doesn’t apply that well with this shade at all, I find that it actually can rubs a lot of the lipstick off. The gloss is pretty gritty when on, so I’ve preferred to wear this shade alone rather than be a glitter ball. Not an every day colour.
I still give this product an 7/10. I love the Lip Booms and can’t wait to get my hands on more. MUA you never fail to amaze me.
