Review and Giveaway: MUA Power Pouts x 6 [Closed]

Two things have been consuming my life for the past couple of weeks. The first is the deadline that I have just fulfilled this morning. The second is my love for lip crayons. I recently picked up all 6 colors of MUA Power Pouts and today I want to share my thoughts on these drugstore gems.

From left to right:
  • Rendez Vous - Nude Pink
  • Crazy In Love - Plum
  • Irreplaceable - Violet
  • Broken Hearted - Raspberry
  • Justify - Orange
  • Runway - Warm Red

All 6 colors have cream finishes. The formula applies smoothly and I find the faint smell of mint to be very pleasant. Despite being initially sheer, every color can be built up to look very different from each other on the lips. I am especially loving Irreplaceable and Broken Hearted for their purple tints. Justify is a great orange shade for summer. Rendez Vous and Runway are classic colors suitable for wear all year round. I may reach for Crazy in Love in the colder months, but that is the only color that I don't love on me.

When first applied, some of the colors may look like they will just sit on top of the lips. This is especially noticeable for Rendez Vous, but don't worry, give it a minute and the product will set to complement your natural lip color. The glossy shine lasts about 2 hours and the color tint would last up to 6 hours without drying out my lips.

I am very glad that these MUA Power Pouts are twist ups since the bullets are quite soft. Keep these away from the sun as they will melt even under mildly high temperatures. Thank goodness the UK is finally taking a break from the heat wave that lasted through the past two weeks. The packaging can be a little frustrating. Some of the caps are quite loose and I have already had a few accidents when I dropped them. So if you plan to pack these lip crayons in your bag, I recommend storing it in a sealed plastic bag away from everything else. I can live with the faulty packaging because the product is fantastic. At £3 each, these lip crayons are great value for the money.

Now on to the giveaway! One winner will receive all 6 colors of MUA Power Pouts (a £18 value) that I will purchase for the giveaway!

Congratulations Sarah!
