FOTD- DuWop and MUA

I had to do my make up really quickly today as I was running late for my therapy appointment, so please excuse the shabbiness of it.
I used two colours from the Dusk til Dawn palette from Mua and tried out the Venom gloss by DuWop that I received in my GlossyBox this month.

I was a little dissapointed with the pigmentation of this palette. The single eyeshadows from MUA are so great I expected these to be the same. I had to use quite a bit of product to get any noticeable colour. However, when applied I really loved how it turned out (even if it was really rushed and not blended properly!).

I have tried many "lip plumping" glosses before and found the only one to make visible difference was Lip Injection by Too Faced (it stung like hell). I was hopeful this DuWop Venom gloss would be good as it is from a higher end brand. It applied smoothly but felt a little too sticky for my liking. After a few seconds the tingling sensation began and lasted a good 15 minutes. However, I noticed no change in the plumpness of my lips, although they did turn slightly more pink.
I do absolutely LOVE the shade of this gloss though, its a subtle champagne colour but as my lips became more pink due to the tingling feeling it sort of turned the gloss into a lovely nudey pink. I am considering purchasing the full size :-)

Mua palette available here for £4
DuWop venom gloss available here for £16

Have you tried either products before?
