MUA Out There Plumping Lipgloss In Pin Up Pink: Swatches & Review
Guest Review By Lee (Light Skin Tone, NC 35, Combination Skin)
Angelina Jolie, Penelope Cruz, Anne Hathaway and closer home our very own Priyanka Chopra. What do all these ladies have in common, well besides gorgeous looks and enviable fame?
Bee stung lips i.e. THE perfect full pout that all of us keep lemming for! Not many of us are blessed with fuller pouts or enough guts to go for collagen shots so our saviours become the lip plumpers and they’re certainly the cheapest and safest option. Since my lower lip is double the size of my upper lip I finally decided to give them a try and I turned to my trustworthy ole’ brand MUA for it.
Pink up Pink is a sheer raspberry gloss which does not contain any shimmer. It is one shade that shall suit all complexions and will look beautiful on just about anybody! It is sheer but you can easily build up the pigmentation to a semi-opaque finish.
The texture is creamy and adequately moisturizes my dry lips. Unlike many cheap glosses it is non sticky and feels very comfortable on the lips. It does tingle for a few mins but the tingling is very light and you wouldn’t be bothered by it. I was always wary of lip plumpers as I do not find the idea of burning(well sorta!) my lips too tempting and I was pleasantly surprised at how subtle the tingling was!
Now does it actually plump the lips? Well,definitely! It does make my lips look fuller, healthy and plump! I tend to apply a bit more gloss to my upper lip to plump it more than my lower lip and as you can see in the pic it did make a difference to my lips. I wouldn’t say it makes a HUGE difference but it is quite noticeable and I am highly satisfied with it!
The staying power is pretty decent for a gloss and lasts for about 2-3 hours depending on the amount I drink or eat. This is the maximum that glosses last on me(barring the Colorbar True Glosses) and I’m extremely happy with my purchase. The only real con for me is the availability because even though they are available on Indian websites it is priced at exorbitant prices thus I prefer buying it directly from MUA’s website which involves the risk of loss and breakage during shipping L
