MUA Lip Booms- Review & Swatches!

Hello girls! Today I'm going to show you some lip products and more specifically the MUA Lip Booms which are MUA's only lip products that I own but haven't reviewed yet. (You can see my 1 pound MUA lipsticks review here ,my MUA out there plumping lipglosses review here and my MUA power pouts review here. )

So, what are those Lip Booms? They're a 2-in-1 product which has on one edge a matte lipstick and on the other shade a lipgloss and they're meant to be weared each on their own or combined in 2 different ways (with lipgloss only on the center of the lips or all over the lips)

From left to right : OK.COM, Cheeky, OMG, Doin Good, It's a situation, LMK

About the lipgloss part:
If you ask me I didn't like the lipgloss part at all because it contains lots of glitter and it's chunky. I believe it looks really bad, especially on top of the lipstick. The lipglosses that come with shades "OK.COM" , "OMG" and "Cheeky" is not terrible on it's own at least, but the lipglosses that come with shades "Doin good", "it's a situation" and "LMK" look absolutely horrible in my humble opinion. Another thing I have noticed is that the lipglosses that come with shades "OK.COM" and "OMG" are either similar or identical and the same goes for the lipglosses that come with shades "It's a situation" and "LMK".
The only thing I liked about them is the yummy smell, it's a combination of sweet vanilla and caramel I'd say and they're not sticky at all. Still half of them are not wearable at all.

About the matte lipstick part:
I believe those are a hit and miss. Others have an amazing pigmentation, apply good, stay on for hours and are totally matte and others apply patchy, are not matte at all, don't last much and aren't pigmented enough. "Doin good" , "It's a situation" and "LMK" are definitely hits and my favourites among all of them. "OMG" is pretty good but slightly worse in terms of pigmentation and formulation , "OK.COM" is not bad but it didn't impress me at all and it's not a matte at all and "Cheeky" is a total miss. It lacks in pigmentation, you have to build it up too much in order to get the color of the tube in your lips , it applies patchy and it's glossy , it's definitely not matte! So I'd say the first three I mentioned have the best pigmentation and are totally matte and last more than all the others, "OMG" has good pigmentation, I'd say it's semi matte and lasts less than the first three but more than the last two and the last two have quite poor pigmentation, they're not matte and they don't last much, however "OK.COM" is much better than "Cheeky" in terms of quality, still I didn't like it that much. Oh, I forgot to mention all the lipsticks smell amazing just like the lipglosses do which is great!
So I'd advice you to get any of the first four I talked about , maybe "OK.COM" if you're a nude lover although I think you can find much better matte nude lipsticks and definitely DON'T get "Cheeky", it's no good at all!!

OMG : As you can see it's just a nude beige color. Nothing special about it.

Cheeky : A pale barbie pink that looks and feels horrible.

OMG : A pretty peachy pink.

Doing Good: One of my favourite every day lipsticks! It looks good with almost every eye make up!

 It's a situation : I love dark lipsticks and this makes no exception!

LMK : This one is the darkest of all and I love it as much as I love "it's a situation". It's in the same color range just darker.

here you can see how it looks with the gloss in the center of the lips...

...and all over them.

It sucks, doesn't it? I never use the lipglosses and it's a pity because they smell so good.. I wish Those products were normal lipsticks without the lipgloss part, it would save some space in my lipstick case.

ps: Forgive my lip swatches, I know they're a mess but I was in a hurry :p

Anyway, that's my opinion about the Lip Booms, if I had to pick  two favourites I'd say "it's a situation" and "Doin good".
Those cost 3 pounds each and you can find them at MUA's store.

Which are your favourites? Have you tried any of them ? Would you?
Let me know!

  4. Τα πιο σκούρα μου αρέσουν πολύ, μάλλον έχω μπει σε χειμωνιάτικη διάθεση :) Τα γκλος πάλι χάθηκε να έχουν ένα παρόμοιο χρωματάκι με τα κραγιόν χωρίς το γκλίτερ; Θα ήταν τόσο βολικά!

  5. Τα σκούρα μ'άρεσαν πάρα πολύ!

  6. Τα τρία τελευταία κραγιονάκι δείχνουν πολύ ωραία!!! Τωρα για τα gloss, δεν ειμαι fan ποσο μαλλον αν εχουν ΚΑΙ glitter!
