Hope everyone out there is healthy and fine. I had no intention to review duds actually, but then I thought that duds have a right to be reviewed too. So here I am writing the review which I never intended to write. I have no justification why I picked this up; may be because I wanted so many shades from MUA Intense Kisses range but managed to grab only two; so picked this one in lieu of the pink shade I was drooling over. Or maybe because I have never ever managed to finish a lipstick or a lip gloss completely’ which is a real bad thing. I get bored too soon and switch; I like changes in life. Anyways, moving on the personal story, let’s discuss the product.

My take on MUA Out There Plumping Lip gloss-Pink Sugar:
Packaging: The lip gloss comes in a tall tube, really tall around 5-6”which is weird. Or maybe I am being bias because I dislike the product so I am being judgmental about its packaging too. The doe foot applicator is good and makes the application easy and neat but it is the same way uselessly long. The cap closes tight and it is travel friendly.
Texture and finish:
The lip gloss is thick in consistency. Though light weight and non-sticky on lips, the texture is not at all creamy. The consistency and the texture collectively make it drying on lips and during application; you need upto three swipes to cover the lips. It is finely opaque and covers pigmented lips. it doesn’t prove to be hydrating or moisturizing at all. It has no shimmer or glitter but settles with a silver sheen and glossy effect. If you expect to add a plumping effect or pout to lips, you are going to be seriously disappointed.
Colour and pigmentation: The shade ‘pink sugar’ is no doubt a lovely true pink with moderate pigmentation. With no shimmer, it is subtle glossy with silver sheen. If it only would have been creamy, the lip gloss would have got good remarks from me.
Staying Power: Let me explain the worst part first. The moment you apply it, a tingling sensation starts like you have got so many chillies on your lips. This feeling is truly unbearable and didn’t even vanish after 10-15 minutes and I had to remove it. It was so uncomfortable and unbearable. So I can’t say about staying time. It is slightly transfer-rable to cups and glasses. I tried in 2-3 times but the tingling and weird sensation compelled me to remove it. Now this is going to the dust-bin!
Pros of MUA Out There Plumping Lip gloss-Pink Sugar:
• Pretty true pink shade.
• Lots of quantity for fewer bucks.
• No shimmer, rather finish is silvery sheen.

Cons of MUA Out There Plumping Lip gloss-Pink Sugar:
