I’m totally impressed with the MUA Power Pout sticks – they’re as good as any other – quite glossy and stainy so you keep the colour for a good while and have a slightly minty taste.
The shade line up is (from nearest to furthest): Irreplaceable, Crazy In Love, Justify, Runway and finally, Rendevous. I’m missing one, Broken Hearted in a beautiful raspberry shade. These are £3 and I am not quite sure how they are doing them for the price, compared to other sticks… I’d totally recommend them.
Oh, and I am going to mention the elephant in the room.. Clinique Chubby Sticks. My heart lies with Chubbies because they were the first and they’re beautiful – I imagine the formula will be quite different and yet the effect is pretty much the same. But while I was swatching the MUA sticks, I was very clumsy and knocked the top off one of them which meant I had to turn the bottom end to make more come out of the top. I was quite surprised at just how little actual product goes into a stick. I compared the two – there is exactly the same amount of product. For some reason, not that I had thought about it much, I had assumed that the colour went all the way down the pencil. Nu-oh. Not even nearly.. look!
What do you think? Did you, like me, assume there would be far more product in these?
