MUA Intense Glosses

19 August 2013

Back when I was getting ready for my wedding, I had a make-up trial with the lady that would be doing my bridal make-up on the day. All of the products she used were high end, and she recommended that I purchase some of the products (such as powder and lip gloss) to use on the day for top ups. The products she suggested were MAC products, which I have no doubt are top notch, but I didn't really have enough spare cash at the time to actually spend £40 on one lip gloss and a compact of face powder.

Whilst bumbling about on the internet, I spotted these lip glosses on the MUA website, and decided to give them a go.

The soft pink shade (Sealed With a Kiss) is almost a perfect match for the MAC lipgloss that was suggested to me, and only cost £2. These lip glosses are ideally sized for handbags or clutches, so I was able to give this to my mum for her to carry around for me on the day.

This shade was perfect for the wedding day, it's easy to apply, and wasn't too OTT or understated.

The second shade I bought (on impulse) is called Quick Kiss. This is a much more pigmented shade, and is almost a what I would imagine the Revlon Lip Butters to be like if they were more colourful.

I find this gloss quite tricky to apply as the wand tends to be slightly overloaded, so I end up with an excess of gloss on my lips. Overall, I think for £2 each, I think these glosses are a bargain, but I would recommend going to Superdrug to buy these, as the colours seem to be pictured weirdly on MUA's website. Quick Kiss is pictured as a sort of orangey colour, which it definitely isn't!

Thanks for reading :) xxx

  1. I have the darker shade and I find it too over the top for a day look, I love the lighter shade on you though, looks so pretty! I'm going to go and look for it in Superdrug :D
