MUA Makeup Academy Sheerfinish Lip Gloss in "Happy Days" and "Perk Me Up" - Swatches & First Impression

Having not previously tried the MUA Sheerfinish Lipglosses and being a great fan of sheer formulas (I always think that if I wanted an opaque finish then I'd go for a lipstick - but again that's just my opinion), I thought I give them a try.

MUA Sheerfinish Lipgloss in "Happy Days" & "Perk Me UP"
The Sheerfinish Lipgloss is available in eight shades and I opted for a peachy shade and a brownish shade as I thought these would complement my skin colour.

They are retailing at £1.

And this is a quick product description by MUA:

"A moisturising sheer lip-gloss in eight wearable shades with just a touch of sheer colour for an irresistible shine in a squeezable tube applicator to provide a smooth and easy application with a sweet scent."

From left to right I got the following colours: "Happy Days" and "Perk Me Up"

And this is how they swatch:

I really enjoy these two little glosses and here is why:

  • Both look fantastic on - "Happy Days" tints my lips a pretty, peachy colour which I like a lot but "Perk Me Up" is the surprise winner here: when I first opened my parcel I thought I had made a bit of a bad choice for my skin tone as the gloss looked threateningly brown in the tube. However, once on it gives lips a sheer, rusty brown wash of colour with just the right amount of depth and works very well with my pale skin tone;
  • both glosses glide on easily and leave a high-shine, super glossy nicely sheer finish on the lips;

  • they have a light fruity smell but no annoying taste;
  • I like the packaging as it allows for easy application (I'm a fan of tube lip glosses);
  • they work well on their own or applied over a lipstick;

  • and their staying power is average for a high shine lip product and they are of course not as long lasting as a matte lip product.

If you want to maintain the high shine finish then re-application - especially after eating or drinking is a must.

Overall Verdict

I love those little lip gloss tubes and how they look and feel on my lips and I couldn't be happier with my colour choices! At £1 a great little product to experiment with colours you might not normally go for or to have an extra backup in your bag for touch ups.
