MUA Lovehearts Lip Balm

Right Ladies,You may have seen posts about this collection everywhere and be slightly sick of it by now,but i gave in a few days ago and bought one of the products from MUA's Loveheart collection!
When i went shopping i did not plan to buy anything from the range,in all honesty i was slightly worried that the products might have been over hyped as there has been so much talk about it in the bblogger community,but as soon as i saw them in store i just knew i wanted something from them!

The first thing that has to be said is that the packaging is gorgeous!Very cutesy and girly,with the main imaging obviously being the classic loveheart sweet! I also love that the shades of the products in the range have their name placed in the heart like the messages you usually find in the sweets!
Although the MUA products are so cheap i decided to be somewhat reserved and just but the one product! I chose the lip balm in the shade 'great lips'. Apparently the lip balms in this collections are similar to the Sleek pout pots but i haven't personally tried them so can not compare!
The MUA lipbalm is a nude shade which i find to be quite pigmented and actually is really pretty! I thought it would be super sheer,but when you put it on the lips its like a mix of a gloss and a lipstick,it really does give a great colour! I also found the lipbalm is lovely and creamy and not at all sticky! I know a few people do not like a product which you have to keep dipping your finger into ,which i do understand,but i find for me it is really handy to chuck in my bag. and quickly pull out and use while i am out and about or more commonly in uni! I am suprised how much i keep going to this product even though i have only had it a week,it just is really handy and really useful when you want colour quickly on the go!          
                                           I wish i had picked up more of these!
My favourite look so far with this product is applied on top of my mac viva glam II Lipstick! It just adds such a lovely glossy look to an already beautiful lipstick shade...LOVE IT!

The MUA Love hearts collection is available in Superdrugs stores and their website (here) and also directly from the MUA website (here)- The lipbalm i bought was £2!!

Have you tried any products from this range?

Love Kristina x
