MUA Power Pouts (£3) available at MUA Online & Superdrug StoreMUA Power Pouts, described as ‘Colour Intense tint and balm’, and are dupe of Revlon Lip Balms and Clinique chubby sticks. I have bought 4 shade’s (Run way, Crazy In Love, Irreplaceable and Broken Hearted )which are quite wearable (for office) and would suit all skin tones. It makes lips look fuller and are perfect for summer and spring.
- Crazy in love:Deep red berry shade
- Irreplaceable:Lovely deep purple/pink colour
- Broken Hearted:Light raspberry pink
Texture: Texture is very buttery, creamy and highly moisturising. The feel of these lips balms is amazingly fresh with a mint fragrance which I really liked. But those who are not that keen on minty smells can relaxe since it fades away after a while. Beware of the melting part as it can create mess if the cap gets loosened in your purse, particularly in hot weather.Staying Power: The Balm is retractable so easy to use and apply on lips. It does not stay long on my lips, fades away in an hour or two but stain stays on for slightly longer. It isn’t really a problem for me as I love re-applying for that fresh & minty fragrance.Pigmentation: Pigmentation is OK for a lip balm. Two or three swipes build up the colour.
Now Individual Lip Swatches
I love these power pouts because they are non-sticky and comfortably glide on lips and provide perfect light pop of colour for the summer. Their collection contains 6 shades. I just wish that they had better staying power though these do leave behind a stain which stays longer. Power Pouts can also be used as a perfect moisturising base for any matte lipsticks. I tried it out and it worked for me. At just £3 I will definitely pick more shades and must say everyone should have at least one in their vanity!
Overall Rating: 4/5
