I actually received this Boots No 7 Liplicious lip gloss as a birthday present from a friend who had bought me a lovely make up bag and had filled it with various mini products. It is a tiny 7ml but I have looked online and you can get them in 14g. Mine is quite a bright pink colour but it doesn’t look so bright when it is on. The tube is clear so you can clearly see the gloss inside and how much you have got left. It has a small screw top which you do have to keep a good hold of especially with this smaller size as it would be easy to lose if it rolled too much.
There is no applicator with this but it has a slanted top which is easy to angle against your lips and to use you just need to squeeze it very gently against your lips. I will usually put the tube in the centre of my lips and then when the gloss is coming out to move it across from side to side. I find that I often only have to apply it to my bottom lip and then rub my lips together which distributes it to the top. The downside is that you don’t have the accuracy that you get with an applicator so if you are looking for a precise line then you won’t get it with this, but it is okay for me and I am happy with the way I apply it.
When you first take the lid off it does smell very sweet and it also tastes sweet when you first apply it, however this does wear off. I was surprised at how sticky it felt when I first put it on and I was expecting it to sort of set or dry, but it didn’t really and I was constantly aware of the fact that my lips were sticky. When I had a drink you could clearly see quite a lot of the gloss on the cup and I was just constantly aware of the stickiness of it.
It does look very shiny and glossy when it is on and if you don’t mind the constant wet sticky feeling then it may be suitable for you. It does look lovely and glossy though and it comes in a wide range of colours and you can get it for around £3 which is good value.
A range of lip glosses from NO7 that adds ULTRA SHINE which I can say straight off it most certainly does give you. The shine is faultless and the scent is nice not a horrible taste but a hint of strawberry, at least that's what I got.
The colour above is the I brought, but there is a large range or roughly 10 shades.
The product states it softens and moisturizes, but I actually felt this product was sticky and left the skin feeling rough afterwards, so much so that I had to apply vaseline to nourish them again.
As for the stickiness so not good for flyaway hair!
If you want to add a bit of glam to your lipstick or shine this could be great to highlight it but not to soften them at all. Reach for this to add to your make up but not for a skin benefit. x
I love wearing lip gloss, I always wear it when I have a night out and I have quite a collection now from various brands. This one is an OK product, it looks lovely and it has quite good staying power but it isn't the easiest to apply and is quite tacky for a while after application.
It comes in a little squeezy tube. I don't find these very easy in terms of application but they are practical because if you're in a rush they're easier to use as you don't need to use two hands and it's sometimes possbile to apply it without even having a mirror too. The only issue with application is that the way it comes out can be a bit too fast so you can end up with too much on your lips and it is quite a sticky gloss so it is best on the less is more saying.
I really like this lip gloss because it's very shiny and has lots of shimmer in it which makes it really stand out on my lips but not in a really dramatic way! I have a lovely pink shade, candy floss pink, and it goes well with my skin tone but the shine in the gloss makes it obvious that it's gloss rather than my natural lips!
In terms of staying power it is pretty good, it doesn't disappear as soon as I have a drink or start talking. I do apply it regularly but it is still more robust than other lip glosses that I have.
4 out of 5
I don’t buy huge quantities of make up, but lip gloss is one thing I do buy and use, and this product is one which I bought a while ago, and I have mixed feelings about it.
On the positive side, I found that some lip glosses would only look good when applied, and by the next time I spotted myself in a mirror it would be worn off. This lip gloss stayed put, and I think that was mainly down to the fact it is quite a thick consistency. In a way, I could describe the consistency as a bit unpleasant – slightly thick, and in its quest for sheen and shininess, almost sticky.
The tube is quite sturdy, and the gloss requires a little squeeze to get some of the gloss onto the end of my finger which I would use to apply to my lips. There is only a small hole to squeeze the gloss through, and the end is shaped slightly, I assume the intention is to apply directly to the lips, and then to use that to spread over the lips. For me, this would get the end very messy and I prefer to just apply with my finger.
The colour I bought is Natural Latte, which as the name suggests is a coffee colour, but it has a really great and noticeable shine and sheen to it. It was the look that this lip gloss gave which was the reason I liked it, and it was certainly not the most pleasant feeling in the world wearing it. As I referred to, it is quite thick, and as such, you would really know you were wearing it, and lips didn’t feel very natural or relaxed.
In summing up the good and bad of this lip gloss, I guess really it’s a case of comfort was sacrificed for a long lasting and good looking effect.
I generally like o wear lip glosses as I feel it gives a nicer look to my lips whether or not I choose to wear it on its own or over a lipstick. Boots number seven make their own range of lip glosses in small tubes which cost six pounds and they come in a wide choice of neutral shades to choose from. The one I had was a light candy floss pink and I used to use this a lot until I began to realise this is what was actually drying my lips out and making them feel and look very chapped. This lip gloss came in a small plastic pink tube with a small white twist off lid. The tube itself was soft which enabled me to gently squeeze out the exact amount of gloss I required to apply to my lips. It had reasonably good staying power and didn''t need to be reapplied very often throughout the day but I was finding that the longer i was wearing this lip gloss for, the more dry and chapped my lips were starting to feel, until eventually I really had to stop using it. The other negative about this lip goss was that it felt really sticky and tacky on my lips after a while and I found eating and drinking anything very difficult whenever i was wearing this. One the whole I have used better lip glosses and this is one I don''t really recommend.
I don't ever to wear lip gloss on a daily basis, but I was given this as part of a present at Christmas so decided to wear this for girly nights out since then.
This is part of Boots No. 7 brand, which is a bit of a boutique style brand which is located in the make up section of boots, where each brand has a 'podium' with an attentive assistant. The No. 7 brand has an extensive range of make up and it has a quality feel to it without the quality price tag like the other major brands.
This lip gloss comes in a flexible plastic, squeezy tube with a twist off cap. It is thinner at the bottom end than the top, where it is wider and more circular at the top. You twist the cap off and the applicator is slanted with a tiny hole in the top which aids application. The tube has 12ml in it,which holds quite a lot. I've been using it for 5 months now, with relatively frequent applications for nights out.
The front of the packaging is quite nice and looks quite classy, keeping with the vibe of the whole brand. It is a clear plastic tube with subtle gold writing and the title says "Liplicious Ultra Shine Lip Gloss". There are a few different shades, and mine the shade called Candyfloss. Although I didn't pick it for myself, given a choice, it's quite likely I would have chosen the Candyfloss shade as it would appeal to me to be quite sweet!
The application of it is quite easy and it dispenses in small amounts as the hole is quite small so you can easily control the amount that you are putting on! (Very useful if you are like me and don't do ostentatious make up!) It glides on easily and feels quite smooth and smells rather sweet, but not sickly sweet. It is quite shimmery when it goes on and would really suit someone very girly. However, it is definitely sticky, so be careful with hair and wind! One of the main problems with it is its lack of staying power. While on a night out, even if you are drinking through a straw, it comes off easily! You would need to frequently apply this product, I would say it easily wears off within an hour.
Overall, its not a bad product. It looks good and feels good and is lovely for a night out. However, the lack of staying power is a big draw back. I have seen this available for £6, which I would assume is a relatively standard price; although it was a present to me, so I don't actually know this. For such frequent application, I don't think I would pay this for another of this product when it runs out.
Boots No 7 Liplicious Lip Gloss
This is another No 7 product that I got in a Christmas gift set from Boots. I like my lip glosses and go through them rapidly especially in the summer. This Liplicious gloss is part of Boots extensive No 7 make-up range.
My lip gloss came in a gift set and so I cannot comment on the packaging. The lip gloss that I have comes in a flexible plastic tubing, it is typical of many branded lip glosses on the market. The tube is approximately 10 cm in length and has a diameter of approximately 1.5 cm. it is a slightly triangular shape which is thinner at the base and wider and circular at the top where the screw on lid is. On undoing the lid there is a slanted applicator tab with a small hole cut into it which is where the lip gloss comes out of when you apply pressure to the tube.
On the front of the tube is the No 7 branding written in lovely gold lettering and the title 'Lipicious Ultra Shine Lip Gloss'. The tube is see through so that you can see the shade of gloss inside. My shade is a lovely shiny and rich pink colour, I did not get a choice in the shade with this coming in a gift pack, however it is a colour that I would have chosen for myself, called candyfloss. The tube contains 12 ml of lip gloss product.
When you squeeze out the lip gloss you get a slightly sweet smell coming from the gloss. The consistency is very smooth and quite light/thin, which I personally like as this generally means that the gloss will not be too heavy and sticky on my lips. With the gloss being quite thin you only need to squeeze a small amount out to cover your lips, about the size of a small bead will do and then stroke the plastic applicator across your lips until they are completely covered.
The gloss feels really silky and smooth when on and quite moisturising too. The pink pigmentation in my gloss is really good and shines a lovely shimmering pearly pink colour when applied. I also think that it add a bit more plumpness to my lips, which was an added bonus. The gloss lasts a fair while on my lips, though it is not too good at withstanding the copious amounts of tea and coffee I drink in work and so I do find myself reapplying this every hour or sooner. I think that its thickness plays a part in this lack of staying power. However other than that I really like this gloss.
Boots have obviously rebranded and improved this gloss since I received mine, however they are currently on Amazon for £6 which is a very decent price for a good quality and lovely coloured lip gloss.
I'll be the first to admit that I'm not very good with make-up, I just don't know where to start. When I had a big event to go to a couple of years ago I visited the No.7 counter in my local Boots and asked if they could do my make-up for me, in return I purchased my favourite product that they used once I knew how to apply them correctly. This lip gloss was one of the products I did buy, and I'm very glad I did.
I bought the shade 'Angel Cake' which is a creamy nude colour with a slight shimmer. It cost me a few pence sort of £9, which to me is quite expensive for a lip gloss, however the 12ml tube lasts so much longer than you'd expect. The tube is clear so you can see the product, and more importantly how much is left. There is a clear plastic lid which you pull off to reveal the plastic tip, which is cut at an angle to apply for easy application. There is a hole in the middle of the tip and the tube is very easy to squeeze so you can apply as much or little of the gloss as you like.
The gloss has a pleasant smell, sweet but not overly sickly. It doesn't taste particularly nice, but it doesn't have a bad flavour is you end up getting some in your mouth while wearing it. It has quite a thick consistency so you don't need much to give your lips a good coating. I was also taught by my No. 7 artist to apply a small dabs to my upper lip to help make them look bigger. Once applied, whether all over the lips or in dabs it has a lovely look. The shimmer is subtle and the gloss is smooth, the colour is very subtle and I'm impressed at how good the colour looked on.
I have found the lip gloss has a reasonable staying power, it does come of if you eat or drink, which I think it expected, however if you're just out and about it stays on for quite some time before needing a re-application. The gloss also contains shea butter and has left my lips sot and moisturised, as well as Vitamin E to help protect them in harsh weather - I've found a noticeable difference after being out in the wind and finding my lips a lot less dry than without this gloss on.
Overall I really liked this lip gloss. It gave a lovely subtle colour to my lips and felt slightly better quality than a cheaper gloss, however the price tag puts me off purchasing it regularly and I save it for special occasions. 4/5 for me - a star lost for price.
Not one to wear lip-gloss myself but when I got this as a present I couldn't resist a try, to my suprise it (not!) I disliked it.
The tube does not specify the colour, I can only describe it as a light pinky peach , they are meant to be candy coloured but this doesn't look like any candy I know, The tube is around the size and shape of a pen, you apply the lip gloss by squeezing it through the applicator. I have seen the same one for around £6 in Boots.
The application is fairly easy because the hole is small and not too much gloss comes out which I find in other lipglosses, One coat does the job and two coats is a bit excessive, sometimes I get a odd time where I end up covered in gloss because I've squeezed to hard. The smell begins to come out after two minutes and it smells like cotton candy, If that's the candy they were trying for, the smells great but the colour is not at all cotton candy.
Well my problem with lip gloss is the shine, although the shine and light colour makes my lips look much fuller, they also looked chapped, no matter how hard I try after have minutes It looks like I've been dribbling and after ten, I've touched my lips and everything around me is far too sticky. The colour has also now disappeared, making it look like an expensive alternative to vaseline - but sticky and shiny.
In my opinion, I'm not a lip-gloss person, although I like the big lip effect, the shine tends to make my teeth look yellow and just doesn't suit me at all, The price seems way too much as well for a product that doesn't keep the colour it's intended. The only time I will wear lip-gloss is when they make one which isn't sticky.
Before Christmas I decided to use my saved advantage card points that I normally use in the post Christmas sales to buy myself a large No 7 skin care box which was offer of the week and so half price. Inside the box of goodies there was a liplicious lip gloss tube. I am not a huge fan of wearing lip products and would normally opt for a bit of Vaseline rather than anything else but I was looking forward to trying liplicious regardless.
The product comes in a long squeezy tube through which you can see the lip gloss. The tube has gold writing on it as well as a black lid which I personally think goes really well together and serves the purpose of making the product look more expensive than some others on the market. The product states that it is a moisturising balm which is hypo allergenic with a SPF 15. You are able to use this product for 24 months after opening it which is a good thing for me as I don't use lip products every day.
The liplicious gloss that I have is called marshmallow and it is a soft pink colour which is probably what I would have chosen had I gone to the No 7 counter and chosen one for myself. To use the product you need to pull off the black lid where a nozzle with a hole in the end is revealed. To apply this lip gloss you can either squeeze the tube and apply it using the nozzle or you can use your finger or a brush by squeezing some on to there instead.
The gloss applies easily to the lips and leaves them looking shiny and slightly shimmery yet they look natural too. Now with most lip glosses I can't stand the sticky feeling they cause my lips to have but with this one I find the feeling is bearable to be honest. My lips don't feel particularly sticky unless I touch them straight after application and if anything they feel soft and a bit pouty! The product description does say it is enriched with rosehip and argan oils to moisturise lips and I think this seems to work really well.
I am quite surprised at how much I like this product to be honest. It lasts well on the lips, looks really nice and moisturises my lips too. If you are interested in purchasing this product you can pick it up from Boots where it costs £9.50. I realise this is not cheap by any means but I think it is a really good product personally. Boots do often have vouchers which will give you five pounds off a No 7 product which makes the price much more reasonable I think.
Thank you for reading my review!
This lip gloss is exclusive to Boots and is part of their No 7 range. It retails for £10.00, but with £5 with the No7 vouchers will retail for £5.
Different to the dooyoo photograph, the lip gloss is packaged in a long thin tube, made of clear plastic, allowing to see the colour and amount of product you have. The lid is made of a sturdy plastic, which when removed, which can often be a struggle for me, reveals a slanted tip where the lip gloss is dispensed. Unfortunately, sometimes the lip gloss can be hard to dispense and will often be easier to dispense the product onto the tip of the packaging, then to your lips, rather applying it directly.
This lip gloss is available in 6 different shades. Purple Liquorice, Sweet Peaches, Marshmallow ,Caramel ,Angel Cake and Sherbet Twist. The lip gloss that I own is Marshmallow, a sheer shimmery pale pink.
The lip gloss is quite thin in consistency and a little can easily be spread around the lips, without being too sticky. The lip gloss, named Marshmallow, surprisingly doesn't taste or smell of marshmallows but nevertheless is pleasant to apply.
The lip-gloss is very sheer on the lips and looks natural and you can't tell that you are wearing it.
"No7 Liplicious. The moisturizing, nourishing lip gloss that helps to strengthen your lips natural barrier." I disagree with this statement and find that dehydrates my lips and leaves me craving a lip balm afterwards. Fortunately, it does fade rather quickly, and a lip balm can be applied. This, though, is disappointing as for £10 you would hope that the product would last on your lips but when I wear this, I see no trace of this after 20 minutes of wear.
Overall, it is a pleasant product and I enjoy wearing it but it does not last and requires frequent re-application and for an expensive product, I expected more. I will not be repurchasing.
---- First of all I would like to point out that the photograph given to this lipgloss by Dooyoo has now been repackaged and is a longer, narrower juicy tube than the photograph shown ----
I often buy items on the spur of the moment. But I bought this item simply because I was given a No7 £5.00 off voucher so I thought I better use it (I'm not sure why!) I was after a coral/orange lipstick or lipgloss. I was hoping to find a lipstick that was very moisturising with a sheen to it, so more of a mix between a lipstick and lipgloss. However, I saw the colour of this No7 Liplicious lipgloss and fell instantly in love with colour (called Tangerine Twist) and knew that I would go for that one. I have several items of clothes in coral so it would go perfectly with those. Its retail price was £10.00 so with my £5.00 off voucher I paid £5.00... not too bad.
I think No7 is a brand that I tend to see in the middle of self serve counters like L'Oreal and premium cosmetic counters like Clinique. I think it is in the price as well as the quality.
---- Packaging ----
Liplicious has a squeezy tube which only needs a slight squeeze to allow enough product out of the end of the applicator. It has a plastic lid to the applicator to ensure no product comes out if accidently squeezed for example, in your handbag. I actually really love the packaging. It is like a long, narrow juicy tube and it has a gold rim at the top of the tube by the applicator which makes it look very smart. It almost looks nicer than most of the No7 packaging but this may also be due to the lovely colour that it shows through the tube.
---- How does Liplicious feel when first put on the lips and how does it apply? ----
So after squeezing a little bit onto my lips I noticed that it had a sort of fruity smell which I was not sure if I liked or not. I am used to using fragrance free items like Clinique so I always notice the smell of items with fragrance probably more than most people. When on the lips I was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting it to be quite sticky like most juicy tubes but it was not at all. It was just very moisturising and it felt almost silky on the lips. I absolutely love the feel of it. However, the big but was that unfortunately the gorgeous coral colour that the lipgloss looks to be from the outside of tube isn't half as bright or obvious when on the lips. It almost looks like a clear gloss with a slight shimmer to it. But despite the colour not showing up as I had hoped the feel and natural look of the gloss overcame that disappointment.
---- Does it last for the test of time? ----
I was pleasantly surprised that it lasted on my lips for a good few hours. However, because the lipgloss is so moisturising I often rub my lips together when it is on which I would imagine would start to rub the lipgloss off. However, like most lipglosses and lipsticks it doesn't last after eating, but I expected that.
---- A second person's opinion... ----
My mum actually asked one day I went out for lunch with her what I was wearing on my lips. I showed her the lipgloss and she instantly said how gorgeous the colour of it was but that it didn't look that colour on my lips sadly. But she tried some on after we had finished eating and she also loved the feel of it. She actually ended up also using a No7 £5.00 voucher towards buying one of these but she bought a different colour that she hoped would show up a little bit more but it had the same problem.
---- Additional good points about this lipgloss ----
First of all No7 is hypo-allergenic which for some reason always gives me a sense of relief when buying items knowing that it does not contain ingredients that are known at causing allergies. However, I would just like to point out that allergy testing and hypo-allergenic are two completely different things. Allergy testing goes beyond hypo-allergenic by not only leaving out ingredients from the product that are known allergy causers but it also tests each individual batch of products on a huge panel of people to ensure they will not react to the product. I know this because I was told the difference by a Clinique consultant one day because I was curious if there was a difference.
The lipgloss also contains Shea Butter to moisturise the lips and vitamin E to protect the lips. The back of the lipgloss also states 'sheer non-sticky super shiny colour' which I have only now read whilst writing this review. Perhaps if I had read that earlier I would have been more inclined to realise that the lipgloss wouldn't shower my lips in a rich coral colour. But what I love the most is that the description of the lipgloss is identical to what I found with the lipgloss. There is definitely no false advertising there. The last lipgloss I bought prior to this one from Dior I was told was not sticky but that was a complete fabrication because it was the stickiest lipgloss I had ever tried and I was so disappointed particularly for the money I paid for the item.
---- Overall ----
This is a fantastic moisturising lipgloss which despite having a high shine to it is still very natural looking with a slight shimmer to it and it is not in any shape or form sticky! I would pay £10.00 for this lipgloss but it was a bonus that I had the £5.00 off voucher that tempted me to buy it in the first place. I have been using this gloss for a few months now and it barely looks like it has been used so I think it will last me a very long time.
From a name like 'No 7' and price tags reflecting high quality, I expected this lip gloss to glide on like a dream, last all day and look gorgeous. However, I was disappointed with this. It costs around £10, but feels somethign you would get for £1.50.
Getting drawn in with the trustworthy logo and the attractive colours is easy to do with this, which is why Im glad I didnt get this for full price (it was the trial size I had).
I chose a light pink colour, and what I got back was a sticky mess to be honest. Applying it to your lips feels like it is some sort of lip pumping process, it leaves them feeling really full - and incredibly sticky and thick, which isn't nice. I have had No 7 lipglosses since then 'note gloss' and these have offered a much better experience.
However, a plus point about them is the range of colours you can get - as ever with No 7 they cater for a lot of people. I also like the applicator, that is smooth and fits the contours of your lips.
The only thing I would recommend is that you try it out in the shop before you buy such an expensive product. This is my personal opinion of it, and for some people Im sure they get what they want from this product - so just try before you buy.
Knowing how much I love No7, one of my friends very thoughtfully gave me a No7 giftset for Christmas this year. It has four lovely products in that I can't wait to try out, and will write reviews on once I have. This gorgeous little lip gloss was one of the products in the set.
I love the name of this product - Liplicious.
I also really like the design of the tube. The one I have is slightly different to the one in the picture, as it is thinner and looks longer, also it has gold under the lid and the gold writing is horizontal rather than vertical.
The shade I have this in is a really cute light pink colour called 'marshmallow'. It is really shimmery and catches the light. I have noticed it even shows up quite well in photos, especially black and white ones if thats any use to you!
I squeeze the tube and slide along my lips so that they have some gloss on them. My lips look shinier, more shimmery, and overall much more liplicious! (I'm taking liplicious to mean well cared for, replenished, kissable lips).
The lasting power of this gloss is the only thing that lets it down for me. It doesn't stay on for very long, in fact only about an hour at the most.
Apart from not lasting a long time though, this is a really great lip gloss and I love everything else about it. Its another great product from No7 in my opinion and I would definitely recommend it.
Thanks for reading xo
I love No 7 products and I love the fact that they feel like such a high-end brand but are easily accessible on the high street.
I have this lipgloss in the colour 'Marshmallow'. It looks like a gorgeous baby pink in the tube with a slight shimmer. I was quite disapointed when I first used this as the colour was just clear. There was barely any pigment and it didn't at all look like what it looked like in the tube. I did like the slight shimmer that it left on my lips but that was all. The shimmer is glittery but it doesn't feel gritty or look tacky on the lips; it's quite a subtle effect.
The lipstick was quite watery and therefore not sticky, which I liked, but meant it didn't last very long. They do have SPF 15 and supposedly moisturise the lips which is a bonus as not many lip products contain these. They do smell very sweet and 'candy scented' which was a nice change from regular lipgloss and was very yummy :)
The packaging is simple but sophisticated, just like the rest of the range. It comes with an angled nozzle which applies the product evenly.
These lipglosses cost £9.50 for 12ml of product. There are 6 shades in the range and I would be interested to try a darker shade to see if it is more pigmented. I wouldn't pay £9.50 for this lipgloss again as I really don't think it is anything special. I don't think I'd even buy it with the £5 till splits.
It's such a shame that this is disapointing as I generally love No. 7 products. If you like subtle colours then this might be for you; but I personally love bright, pigmented shades.
