Why can a simple trip to Superdrug to pick up some vitamins never end without a purchase? Oh well! Luckily it was only a cheapy one! I have to say I'm not MUA's biggest fan, I know a large amount of people & bloggers that have had horrible experiences with customer service & the products can be really hit or miss in terms of quality, but a new product caught my eye, the Power Pouts.
As you can see, it's another lip crayon offering, a la Clinques Chubby Sticks, or Revlons Just Bitten. These lip products seem to getting more & more popular, and in true MUA style, they've cottoned on. The packaging is literally the same as any other lip crayon, a thick sturdy plastic.
Again, like all the other lip crayons out there, it's a thick point & it twists up from the bottom much like a lip balm. This one twists up, and more importantly back down very easily.
Broken Hearted is a deep rich pink, but because it's a balm the colour is slightly more muted than it would be if it was a lip stick or a lip gloss.
It's no secret that I'm not a fan of overly bright lips, but I really adore this colour of the lips, it's bright yet still really wearable. However unlike other lip crayons there isn't a hint of stickiness, it has more of a lip balm feel to it, and when I looked at the ingredients it actually contains Beeswax. As for wear time, it has quite minimal transfer when drinking & eating, and when it does start to fade it does so evenly. It also makes the lips look really nice as it doesn't cling to any imperfections.
So, even though I usually dislike MUA products, I give these a big, big thumbs up! And, another big positive is that they aren't a bank breaker, at £3 each here, you could pick up 3 & have change from a tenner. I'm already planning to pick up another from the range of 6 shades.
So ladies, what are you MUA's hits & misses?
