Sugar Lips

Over the weekend, I caught the train into the city, one which I live closest to, in order to meet one of my best friends. We had a wonderful day, the weather was amazing, we sat down for lunch and talked, it was so lovely to catch up with her. Its sad that a lot of my friends don't live in close proximity to me, although she is only a one hour train ride, it feels like millions of miles away, especially in times of need.
Anyway, as I was in the area, I thought I would take advantage of the larger beauty stores, although I didn't buy an awful lot, just some dry shampoo, in coconut scent, because of course I like my hair to smell tropical. I also purchased a new paddle hair brush as mine accidentally fell down the toilet, as a result I had resorted to some very old, awful hairbrush that practically got lost in my hair multiple times. So I felt it was necessary to invest again in a brand new paddle brush. (If you have thick hair like I do, I would highly recommend these brushes, which you can find here.

As I was walking around the store, I noticed how much I miss out on such a large variety of make-up, although, perhaps it is a good thing, it means my bank has more money.
I came across MUA sugar lips, which is a tinted lip balm, there were I believe 3 colours to choose from, but being the typical girl I am, I zoned into the pretty light pink colour.



They are named according to the Love heart sweets which you can buy, if you aren't familiar with them, you can see what I mean here.
Not only are they slightly tinted, they are a soft vanilla scent too them, which makes them perfect, nothing too over powering.




Its the type of product you can pull out of your handbag and feel good about applying, the cost is only £2 yet it does not feel cheap on the lips at all, its very light, but not at all sticky. You also get 10g worth of product, which for the price, I feel is fantastic.

Have any of you tried the Love hearts lip balm by MUA? If so, what do you think?
I am procrastinating, and must get back to some revision, I hope you all are having a lovely evening. X
