mua lip boom in its a situation

I've had this for ages but found it in my review box and was like aaah I'll give that a little try out! Part of the Alexandra Burke Lip Boom collection It's A Situation is a berry/plummy purple colour lipstick with a glittery "highlighter" gloss on the other side. It's fairly pigmented lipstick that glides onto the lips smoothly and is fairly creamy for such a cheap product. It does feel slightly suffocating on the lips, I've never felt this before with a lipstick so it's a odd feeling. It lasts areound 3-4 hours before fading down to a tint. I dont like lipglosses so Im not even going to attempt the glitter side. Glitter Lips is not to my personal taste either so I'm just giving it a total avoidance! Overall I do like the shade of lipstick and it's a good cheap autumn winter lip colour.

  8. The color looks beautiful, but a suffocating lipstick? That sounds like an awful feeling that I hope to never experience!!

  14. Eurgh glitter lips definitely not for me!
    I love the colour of the lipstick though, but I don't think I've seen that colour from MUA as just a lipstick

  22. Love the glitter in the packaging but not quite on my lips either! They smell so sweet though, bit too sickly for my liking.
