      Pork chop lips

      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.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      It's an ok item but not spectacular.

      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.

      Disadvantages

      A really good quality and fab coloured lip gloss from No 7 - 4 Stars

      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.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A lovely lip gloss, but just too expensive to buy as a staple

      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.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A let down from a great make up brand.

      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*
      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.

      *Application*
      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.

      *Results*
      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.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A good product to try with a £5 off No7 voucher

      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!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Poor quality

        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.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A super shiny, natural, moisturising, sheer lipgloss

        ---- 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.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Sometimes No 7 get it really right, but I don't think this is the case here!

          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.

          Disadvantages

          recommended

          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

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          If you like subtle shades then you will like this, but it isn't at all pigmented.

          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.

          Delicious Liplicious!

          No.7 Liplicious gloss, 12ml
          £9.50 (which will earn you 36 advantage card points worth 36p)

          I love No 7 products and have tried many items in the range; I first bought Liplicious gloss around 2 years ago and have always had a tube since.

          The gloss comes in a slim tube with a pull-off lid and angled nozzle applicator; you have to squeeze the tube to get the gloss out.

          The gloss itself is quite thick and a little greasy; it spreads over the lip easily and leaves a lovely thin coat of slightly tinted shimmery gloss. I find it easy to apply and it lasts quite a while, a lot longer than some glosses.

          Liplicious is available in 6 shades, I have marshmallow which is a lovely baby pink shade. Each colour is a light tint rather than a full-on shade, a beautiful shimmer runs through them with ever so tiny glittery pieces.
          Now when I say tiny, I mean it; it's not a tacky glitter, and the particles are so small that you can't tell it's glitter when wearing it, you just notice that the gloss is really shimmery and catches the light nicely.

          It contains rosehip and argan oils that help to moisturise the lips, it also (as most of the No 7 range does) contains SPF 15 to help protect your lips in the sun.

          All in all... It is a good product. I love the colours and the fact that it stays on your lips longer than a lot of other glosses. Yes, it is a lot more expensive than some brands, but I am happy to pay it as it is a lovely gloss, and it glosses last for ages anyway, so when you work it out 'per wear' it isn't so bad.

          If you like the sound of it get in quick as boots are giving out those fab No 7 goody bags again, and don't forget your advantage card as the points you make are the equivalent of a 4% discount.

          And unlike most other beauty/cosmetics companies, if you are at all unhappy with any No7 product you can return it for a full refund, as long as you have your receipt.

            a good buy, if you got the cash

            I love these lip glosses, they're great, shiny and the color is so strong that it gives some of the most amazing results, and not forgetting that they have a lot of glitter and sparkle!

            I always keep getting these with free products (when you spend a certain amount on n07 products) and the ones I have are the bright pink one and the nude shaded one. These two are my favorite as the pink one is great for an evening look, but the nude can be a good one for a day look, but i prefer to use this lip glosses as a night look as it seems more glamourous and it quite a fair bit of money if you buy one of these lip glosses on its own, it cost around eight to nine pounds, however if you get these in the sales it can cost around four to five pounds depending on what the store to reduce the product to.

            They come in a good range, so whether pink, red, coral, clear, nude shade you're looking for they have it! Brighter lip glosses will look great if you're wearing lip stick! However the lip gloss does tend to wear off quite quickly so if you're wearing lipstick as well that can wear off as well.

            A good thing is that it have quite a good amount in the product, 24m. So it is long lasting product - I'v had mine for nearly three years, but I use mine on nights out.

            Overall, this is a good evening gloss, but it's just like any ordinary lip gloss it wears off before you know it! But it's pricey but a good thing to keep in your handbag!

            Disadvantages

            Overall i wouldn't recommend this particular lip gloss to other people

            Boots No 7 liplicious lip gloss

            Boots No 7 liplicious lip gloss was a bit of a disappointing purchase although initially I had hopes for the new gloss. There are six different shades to choose from; caramel, marshmallow, jelly bean, cherry kiss, tangerine twist and angel cake. I personally own the very pearly pink marshmallow shade, which I thought would be a perfect light and a sufficiently girly colour for the coming summer.

            --The lip gloss in question--

            One point definitely in the favour for this lip gloss is the smell. I'm trying to remember if they all smelled different, but the smell of the marshmallow shade is simply gorgeous, it is sweet and appealing. I also think that the colour is really very pretty, as I mentioned I have the very pink marshmallow shade and aside from being a nice colour it also appears to have a lovely subtle sparkly shimmer through it. However, onto the negative points. It doesn't seem to last that long and unlike some of my other lip glosses I feel I need to re-apply this a bit too often. Personally, I think the texture is a too thin which makes it feel a little runny and in general it feels too slick on my lips.

            I think I am even more disappointed with the product because overall I love Boot's No 7 range and I own a fair bit of their make-up. This liplicious lip gloss as the titles says is fair from what the name promises to deliver.

            --The packaging--

            The packaging is very simple and pretty standard for a lip gloss, it is it a clear plastic tube that you squeeze a small amount out of and then apply to the lips rather than a wand or brush being required.

            --Value for money?--

            To sum it up, I would have to say no. Personally, I think that £9.50 (the price in Boots when I bought it) for a 12ml tube is too expensive for this particular lip gloss.

            --My overall opinion--

            In my experience I have been a bit disappointed with this particular Boots No 7 lip gloss. I wouldn't recommend buying it and sadly I am only going to give it two out of five dooyoo stars. One star for the beautiful smell and one star for the shimmer pearly pink colour.
            I wish I had been a member of Dooyoo earlier and I might have never purchased this to begin with.

              Lip gloss

              Boot No 7 Liplicious

              I do like the Boots No 7 products so was really pleased to be given this lip gloss as a gift for my birthday.

              THE PROMISES...

              The lip gloss promises to be sheer non sticky super shiny lip colour with Shea butter to moisturise and condition lips and Vitamin E to help to protect them.

              THE PRODUCT...

              The lip gloss comes in a rather nice tube, with gold trim and a pull off/push on lid. When I pull of the lid and have a bit of a sniff, the lip gloss smells quite fruity and this fruity promise continues when I apply it to my lips, as it tastes a bit fruity. Already I like it. The colour I have, Angel Cake, when applied, doesn't really add any colour to my lips, which I like, as I prefer them to be glossy rather than an unnatural shade of something. The product is easily applied by giving the tube a very small squeeze and then running the applicator over lips. I say to give it a very small squeeze because it does come out quite quickly and the first time I applied it, I ended up having far too much of the stuff coming out of the tube.

              Once applied to lips, it does make lips look really shiny and glossy and there is, as promised, no stickiness. There are no claims that it lasts for hours on end, but it does stay put until I eat or drink something, but the nice taste means I want to lick my lips!

              PRICE AND AVAILABILITY...

              The product is available in store and online at www.boots.com and costs £9.50 for 12ml of the stuff. It is available in 5 colours: Angel Cake, Marshmallow, Jelly Bean, Cherry Kiss, tangerine Kiss. I have the Angel Cake which seems to be the lightest one, while the other lip glosses seem to be deeper colours and will probably add a more obvious colour to the lips.

              VERDICT...

              Not the cheapest lip gloss on the market but with a 24 month shelf life once opened, it can be kept for special occasions. I however tend to use it daily and also when I go out because while it does give great shine, it's not too obvious for day time wear. A bit of an all rounder. A little of the product goes a long way and this has already been used several times a day for a month and shows no signs of running out yet.

              It leaves lips feeling soft and smooth without any stickiness, so this is a lip gloss which I would recommend for day time and night time wear.

              Thanks for reading
