I love finding good beauty buys and this lipstick/lipgloss duo is no exception. Whilst browsing in my favourite pharmacy Superdrug I came across the brand MUA. They have a brilliant range of beauty buys and I couldn’t pass up this particular bargain aptly named Lip Boom. A lipstick and plumping gloss in one, this is a handy item every girl will appreciate.
Created with Alexandra Burke, this is a lipstick and highlighting gloss that creates fuller curvaceous lips for a dramatic illusion of volume. There are four amazing ways to transform your lips using this product to give them some ‘Boom’. You can use the lipstick alone for a matte look, use it with the highlighter applied just to the centre of your lips to create a full volume illusion. Use the lipstick with the highlighter all over for a super glossy look or the highlighter alone for a sheer pearl finish.
For only €3.75 it’s half the price of a lipstick alone and comes in a variety of eight trendy shades. I opted for ‘OMG’ a bright almost neon peach colour which is a deadly dupe for Topshop Whimsical. The gloss is a more subtle peach with lovely gold flecks throughout; a perfect accompaniment to apply to your pout.
As for plumping, this isn’t exactly a lip filler but it definitely adds a thick layer of long lasting gloss which provides a fuller effect.
