If you know me, you will know I absolutely love MUA Make-up Academy from Superdrug for their great products and craaaaazy cheap prices! Lately they have really been expanding their range and bringing out loads of new products, which I am super excited about. One of their new additions is an ‘intense’ lipgloss called Intense Kisses- High Intensity Gloss.
I picked up the shades Smooch and Pucker Up
Smooch is a really pretty peachy/orange with lots of shimmer and glitter. I was wondering how ‘intense’ this colour would actually be when applied and was hopeful that it would live up to it’s name.
Unfortunately I was pretty disappointed with the colour pay off, as you can see in the image, its not particularly intense at all. The glitter is really pretty and adds a nice shine, I would say this colour is better for a more natural look.
On its own the gloss just offers a little shimmer to the lips.
I added an orange lipstick underneath and it added a nice effect however I feel any gloss could do this.
I like this lipgloss shade, it isn’t very ‘intense’ however for the price it is still really nice colour.
The other shade I picked up was ‘Pucker Up’ which is a beautiful bright red. After the disappointed of the first shade I wasn’t expecting much from this colour other than a slight red tinge, however I was very pleasantly surprised.
This colour is actually very intense and a really beautiful shade of red.
On it’s own the colour is really wearable and opaque, great for adding a quick red lip after work- it’s definitely one to keep in your handbag!
I added a red lipstick underneath even though the gloss didn’t need it at all, I just wanted to see the difference, which there wasn’t much!
I just love this colour!
For the price- just £2 this product is amazing! Even though I wasn’t so keen on the first shade, the red is so beautiful and I definitely will be trying more of the other colours. There are 8 in total and they range from light nude to bubblegum pink to deep pink and reds.
They are available now in selected Superdrug stores and online at http://www.muastore.co.uk/index.php/
Have you tried the glosses? What do you think?
