Review : MUA Lip Boom, OK.Com

As promised, this is the review of the last of the three MUA Lip Booms that I received, OK.Com. 

Lip Booms are a result of a collaboration between MUA and Alexandra Burke. They are a 4 in 1 product with a lipstick on one end and a highlighting gloss on the other. 

You can use the lipstick alone, the highlighter alone, the lipstick with a covering of highlighter or the lipstick with the highlighter in the centre of your lips to create a fuller look.

I'm not a nude lipstick fan so OK.Com scared me. I'm actually quite pleased with it. I don't think that it suits me worn alone but I do like the result of both the highlighter all over and the highlighter in the centre.

Both the lipstick and the highlighter have the most amazing vanilla smell, I really love it but am aware that some people may be put off by this. I'm assuming that the whole range has this scent as the three that I have do.

The lipstick does stay put a lot longer without the gloss, when they have worn off you are left with glittery lips.

The gloss is quite gritty due to the big chunks of glitter. However, as you can see from the swatches the lipgloss doesn't look too glittery.

I like the packaging, it is really nice and compact and will take up less room than a lipstick and separate lipgloss. The only downside for me packaging wise is the annoying bits of sellotape that they stick on it, these leave behind an annoying stickyness and cheapen the look of the product. 

I'm not a huge fan of the product names, I find them a little 'chavy' and I'm not a huge fan of Alexandra Burke. That aside these are great products and little things like that wouldn't put me off.

MUA Lip Booms retail at £3 each. They will be available in Superdrug stores from tomorrow (9th May) and are currently available at MUA's on-line store. There are a total of eight shades to choose from.

  1. This is a nice nude lip! I really like how you just did the center and the whole lip, as well. :)
    Please follow me! I'm just starting out, and would love that.

  2. haha love that they called it ok.com, me and my bro call her ok.com. Really like this colour, it's something I would wear in the day or to work x

  3. It looks lovely on you! I have to admit that I was a bit wary of the colour in the packaging- frosted lip colour always looks a bit scary. But it's a great nude colour, good choice!
