MUA Lip Boom It’s a situation Review Swatches Photos

MUA Lip Boom Its a situation  £3 available at

What else could be better then a combo which offers lip gloss and lipstick in same packaging!! Its travel friendly and relieves you from the stress of deciding which shade will look good with which gloss !!

What MUA says-

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!

1. Lipstick alone for a matte look.
2. Lipstick with highlighter applied just to the centre of your lips to create a full volume illusion.
3. Lipstick with highlighter all over for a super-glossy look.
4. Highlighter alone for a sheer pearl finish.


Its a Situation is a beautiful deep-burgundy Color. This is a perfect shade for winters- warm burgundy, will suit all skin tones .. !!

Gloss has chunky glitters and I am not a fan of glittery-glosses. The texture of the Lip Boom is smooth enough to glide on easily. Pigmentation is really remarkable, it covers lip pigmentation very well.

Staying power is good, on me it stayed on for 5 hours and faded to a light tint. It doesn’t settles in fine lines of my dry lips nor do my lips feel uncomfortable. Although I wear a lip balm underneath.

In the below swatch I am only wearing the lipstick. See how good it looks despite of being  matte shade

With Gloss

Glitter chunks from the gloss don’t show up once you apply it on lipstick. It just gives a glam shine. However I wouldn’t be wearing the gloss alone.

Overall Thoughts

Mua lip boom it’s a situation is a great color for those who love to wear deep dark shades. The formula is non drying and that’s what I love the most. MUA lipcolors are definitely worth trying!
