Review: Makeup Academy MUA Lipboom

MUA Lipboom in Bring It

Product Info from MUA UK:
Created with Alexandra Burke by MUA! Lipstick and highlighting gloss that creates fuller curvaceous lips for a dramatic illusion of volume. There are 4 amazing ways to transform your lips and give them some Boom!

PRICE: Php 550.00

WHERE TO BUY: www.facebook.com/XinandCompany

NET WEIGHT:
Lipstick - 2.5g
Lipgloss - 3g

SHADES: Available in 13 shades.


PROS: 
* my initial impression of the lipstick is that it looks kinda drying, but I'm surprised when I tested it on my lips, it's so creamy and pigmented!
* non-drying
* smells so good! Reminds me of freshly baked cookies =D 
* I'm really impressed with the staying power, it lasts for more than 5 hours on my lips (as long as you don't eat anything oily)
* travel-friendly (no need to bring separate lipstick and lipgloss)
* easy to apply

NEUTRAL:
* based on the description it says that the lipstick has a "matte" finish. To me, the texture reminds me of MAC Satin Lipsticks.

CONS:
* the glitters in the lip gloss are a bit chunky. It is hard to remove and tends to scatter all over your lips when not removed properly.
* the gloss is kinda drying when used alone.


TIPS:
* You can use makeup wipes or ordinary wet wipes to completely remove the lipcolor and lipgloss.
* Moisturise your lips well prior to application.


OVERALL: 
I love the scent, texture and staying power of this product.
If you are looking for a 2 in 1 product that you can easily carry around, I highly recommend you try this one.
