MUA Intense Kisses Lip Gloss Quick Smooch and Pucker Up-Review, Photos, Swatches

Company/Brand Claim: A high intensity lip gloss for any occasion

For Skin Type: All

Packaging: Transparent plastic tube with glitzy black tops.

Product Coverage: Sheer to full

Formulation: Varies

Texture and Feel: Very light and doesn't leave a heavy creamy feeling on the lips. Quick smooch however has a slight glittery texture.


Quick Smooch: A sheer orange toned shade.

Pucker Up: A bright pink with blue undertone.        

Fragrance: Light non irritating scent.

Application: Apply it like a regular lip gloss. Coverage is buildable with some shades.

Result: Since my last experience with MUA Intense Kisses lip gloss was a good one I decided to try out some more. I previously bought the shade Sealed with a Kiss (read review) which is a beautiful everyday nude pink. Quick Smooch however, is the most sheer from the entire range I believe. It is a transparent orange like color which barely shows on my lips. But if you blot it on a tissue paper there's visible color. Perhaps it may show better on fairer skin toned ladies. When you pick it with the applicator it looks more like a lip scrub. It applies smoothly though but somehow I'm still not getting used to it. 

On the other hand, Pucker Up is a sizzling hot pink splash of color which will take years off your age. It brightens the smile and paired with bold lined eyes will create a dazzling look. It can be worn to any occasion which fulfills the brand claim. It is more water based but doesn't bleed off. It's my favorite among the two. 

Staying Power: Quick smooch wears off soon whereas Pucker Up stays for a few hours.

Times Tested: Several times
Cons: None 

Anything Else: -

The MUA Intense Kisses Lip Gloss comes in 8 shades (I so wish there were more) and each tube consists of 5.1 ml of the product. 3/5 for Quick Smooch


3/5 for Quick Smooch

4.5/5 for Pucker Up

Price: Pkr 350/-
Available: Online at in Pakistan and internationally it can be purchased from the office MUA website and
Official Website: MUA
Facebook Page: MUA UK

Alternatives: Bourjois Effect 3D lip glosses are a a good alternate but expensive. 

Conclusion: The brighter shades from the range will work for me. The Intense Kisses lip gloss is a great product at a great price. Recommended? Yes.

  1. I believe Quick Smooch is meant for layering over lipsticks so do try that and let us know how that worked out for you :) I have Quick Kiss which is a medium watermelon red and Pucker Up is a blue toned deep red one me! My friend says I scare the life out of her when I wear this shade :D Btw don't you just love the names?!! This range works great as stains too I have checked. I am a fan of the scent too! Great review and lovely swatches!

    1. Sure i'll try that. The names are just plain sexy. I guess everyone's following the trend. Thankx :)

    2. No Sadaf you do not scare the life out me when you wear Pucker Up :D You look sexy I have told ya already ;)
