Ever since Clinique brought out their lip chubby sticks many other make-up brands have been quick to follow such as Revlon, MUA and most recently Bourjois. I originally wanted to purchase the Bourjois Lip Boost crayons but at the time I was a bit strapped for cash and couldn't justify the price of them, and then I spotted these MUA ones in Superdrug which were only £3 each and so I couldn't resist.
The two shades I picked were 'Justify' which is a lovely peachy coral colour, and 'Rendezvous' which is a lovely pinky/brown shade. I would say the formula of the power pouts is a bit like a creamy tinted lip balm but with much more pigment in them. They are a lot more pigmented then I expected for the price and give a lovely dewy effect on the lips. They are also super glossy and moisturising which makes it perfect for day wear. Also, they are not drying so thankfully don't make any dry cracked areas stand out. In terms of staying power I would say they last around 4 hours before needing re-applied which doesn't put me off them as they are easy to quickly re-apply like a balm. I'm yet to try the Bourjois ones but I'm sure I will be soon. Since reading reviews for the Bourjois ones though I actually think these are just cheaper versions of them with the same pigment/staying power...and what girl doesn't love a bargain?
Have you tried these and love them just as much as me? Let me know!
