MUA Lipgloss Shade 1
Advantages: Costs a pound, nice product
Disadvantages: Doesn't stay put very long at all
When Christmas was coming up I was strapped for cash. I had so many presents to buy, so many things for my home Christmas related and otherwise as I hadn't long moved into my new flat at the time but like a lot of women I still wanted a few bits and pieces to revamp mself up a bit for the party season.I own loads of make up but still from time to time I wantnew items to refresh my make up bag and face with!
Before Christmas and in my local Superdrug store MUA (Make Up Academy) products were on sale for a pound each which included mascara's, lipsticks, pressed powders, blushers well allsorts really and this lipgoss was one of the many items I bought. Sadly just after Christmas my local Superdrug store stopped stocking MUA stuff sadly however they are still available in most Superdrug stores and from wwwsuperdrug.com
There are about 5 shades in the range of lipglosses to choose from and you can buy similar shades in the squeezy tubes too if you want to for the same price. These come in one size of 2.8ml and they come in plastic see through tubes with a black twist on/off lid to the top of them and within that there is a plastic wand with a slanted sponge applicator within it then on the side of the tube we are clearly told what it is and contact details for the manufacturer are given down the other side. Its a bit of a cheap looking product to be honest but robust enough and easy to open and to use it etc.
In the tube this colour (Shade 0) looks shimmery, fairly clear with a hint of a metallic silver to it. It has a scent of vanilla to it which is pleasant and sweet and when applied to the lips does have a nice enough hint of a taste to it as well. It isn't a greasy lipgloss this one and you can wear it naked on the lips or over existing lipstick or whatever however if you are going to use it over a lipstick you do need to be aware this will probably take some lipstick colour off and end up scummy in the tube so I dab it off the applicator and onto my finger and apply it that though you could use a lip brush if you have one handy!
This is a fairly clear gloss and adds a subtle shimmer to my lips with no bits of graty glitter in it or anything adverse like that. Once on I don't find it says put long, maybe just short of half an hour a time but because its so easy to apply and so nicely scented and makes my lips feel smooth I have to admit I don't mind regulary reapplying it.
It makes my lips feel and look smooth and the only quibble I have with this is, is that although it looks nice on it doesn't hang about for long but for a quid this is rather a good product and like I say it does look nice on my lips!
Only available from Superdrug.
Summary: Nice enough and I use mine loads and its lasted me ages!
