Makeup Academy Hot Lips Lip Balm Review, Swatches, Photos

by Tavia

Hello sweeties!

I still have products that I never used in my makeup drawer, they are brand new and untouched and Makeup Academy Hot Lips Lip Balm is one of them. I remember his was released in a limited edition for Valentine’s day two years ago but I only got to open it last week and I’ve been using it ever since. The packaging is actually quite nice, a small plastic jar with a transparent bottom so you can easily see the color. I must say I’m not into this type of packaging when it comes to lip products as I don’t like to apply them with my fingers and not to mention is quite a magnet for bacteria but I have to keep in mind this is a drugstore product.


MUA Hot Lips Lip Balm (£2.00 / $3.00 for 10 g) is a sheer raspberry pink with cool undertones and shiny finish. In the pot it looks more like a rosy red and seems quite intense but on the lips it transfer to this gorgeous fresh shade that changes the lip natural color a bit but still keeps a sense of translucency. The formula is amazing, so lightweight, gliding easily and evenly across the lip and offering a moisturizing sensation that lasts a long time.

I like to apply it with a light hand just for a touch of color and due to its glossy finish it makes lips appear fuller. The formula is non sticky so it’s a pleasure to wear this lip balm on every occasion or windy weather. 🙂

Talking long lasting effect for MUA Hot Lips Lip Balm I would say about an hour or so with minor eating and drinking. I personally love wearing lip balms that transfer a soft rosy or natural color on my lips and the lightweight and hydrating formula without any stickiness is also a plus. With this lip balm particularly I don’t think I will take it with me in my purse and just keep it my makeup drawer and use it only at home as I’ve been doing for the past week. A packaging like this is a downside for me as I cannot afford to apply the product in any situation, but if you are willing to get passed the packaging idea this will be a keeper.
