“ Brand: Boots / Type: Lipstick / Subcategory: Lip Colour / Suitable for: Lip „
For Christmas I got some Boots No. 7 Luscious lip colour, one was a dark brown and the other was a pale blue. With a party coming up, it was perfect opportunity for me to try out the product. I had a nice blue outfit so I thought I would use the pale blue one. Application is easy, I prefer to use a lip brush and then apply to my mouth. It went on really easily and amazingly it didn?t look bad. If you complement it with the right facial make-up this Boots No. 7 product is very good. It even stayed on for a long time, however I did reapply a couple of time during the night. So results are really and your lips are left smooth. Sometimes when you use a lipstick your lips can end up really hard but thankfully this wasn?t the case with this product. I have actually seen this product in Boots and you can buy it in a very diverse of range of colours, so you should find one to match your outfit. In fact it comes in no less than 15 colours so you will definitely find something to suit you. You can buy this product from all Boots store or buy visiting the online site at boots.co.uk. It comes in a tube form and is easy to carry around. Application is easy like I said and for less than £5 its very good value. It?s a good product to have in your make-up bag. It?s very affordable unlike some make-up items on the market therefore will make a terrific gift. It?s got a good moisturising function so it?s keeps your lips dry but it also helps protect against dry lips. Might be worth buying especially in this winters freeze. Overall, this is a very good product from a trusted brand. I definitely will purchase something from the Boots No. 7 Luscious lipcolour range when I am in Boots next time.
I was about 15 when I first started wearing “Shiny Conker” lipstick and guess what? I still wear it! How boring’s that? 26 years of wearing the same old lipstick! Not the same lipstick as in the same tube of lipstick, obviously. I’ve bought many a tube since that first one, and I’ve tried different colours and brands too, but somehow or another I always end up back where I started. I can even remember buying my first tube of “Shiny Conker”. I’d been wearing a lipstick called “Bully Brown”, made by Miners, which I used to buy at our local Co-op, but wanted something less muddy looking. I couldn’t find anything I liked at the Co-op so I poodled off through the Mall and had a look in Boots. That’s where I found it. On the No.7 stand. I’d rather hoped to find something on the No.17 stand, because No.17’s cheaper than No.7, but unwilling to compromise even though my pocket money was running out fast, I bought a tube of this lovely glossy looking, conker coloured lipstick. I’ve never looked back. “Shiny Conker” belongs to the Luscious Lipcolour range and it’s nice. It’s sort of shiny like lipgloss, but without the gooey look. It goes on smoothly and evidently contains moisturising ingredients, which is good if you suffer from dry lips, like me. It does feel lovely and moist too. Its staying power isn’t as good as some other brands I’ve tried, but those with high staying power tend to dry my lips so I’ve found my happy medium. I don’t mind having to re-apply once or twice during the course of an evening, although I will say that it leaves a bit too much colour on the rims of cups and glasses. It leaves colour on the lips of gorgeous men too. Sometimes men like to see lipstick marks on their bodies but that’s usually the bright red variety and in places that shouldn’t be seen in public. They generall
y don’t like their lips to be covered in lipstick though. Bleeding and fading is all pretty normal for a darkish lipstick. The more pigment, the more of a trail you’ll be likely to leave behind. There are ways of improving a lipstick’s staying power though. Using a lip brush helps. Applying a couple of thin coats and blotting between layers with tissue paper is far better than slapping on one thick coat. When you apply your lipstick straight from the applicator you’ll generally end up with a layer 4 or 5 times thicker than you would if you used a lip brush. Not only will the colour generally look better and last longer, but you’ll be saving money too. Lip brushes tickle a bit though, or is that just me? If you don’t mind losing some of the shine, blot the final layer too. I do this for daytime use, but like to keep the shine for evenings and tend to re-apply rather than go for the practical one application solution. The way you blot’s important though. I’ve seen so many women put the tissue between their lips, which they then press together. This doesn’t help a lot. The outer edge of the lipstick doesn’t get blotted properly, and as this is where bleeding will occur, you really ought to fix the edges properly too. What you should do is press your tissue against your CLOSED lips, lightly pressing your fingers across your lips until you’ve kind of glued the tissue to them. When you remove the tissue you should see a definite lip print; that’s how you’ll know you’ve done it properly. If the edges are uneven, you’re not doing it right. Being as Luscious Lipcolour is a glossy lipstick, using foundation on your lips before applying it will help stop it “sliding off”, keeping it looking fresh and vibrant for a lot longer. I’ve tried both liquid and powder and haven’t really noticed a difference, so just use whatever you norm
ally slap on your face. But be warned, your lips will dry out quicker with foundation under your lipstick. As a final touch, if the occasion’s really special, you can use a lip brush with concealer, which is brushed along the outside edges of the lips. This really does give a sharp, professional finish to your lips and helps stop the colour from bleeding. Not something I bother with very often, but there are times when I’m willing to put that little bit extra into it and this is definitely a tip that I’ve found works well. Luscious Lipcolour comes in 15 colours, all shades of pink, plum and brown. No bright reds, guys – sorry. Rather than the traditional round cover, No7 lipstick covers are square shaped. They’re a shiny black with a gold trim and look half decent in your make-up bag. Not quite as nice as some, but a whole lot better than others. During the 26 years or so that I’ve been using “Shiny Conker”, I’ve never yet had a cover split, or had any other problems with them for that matter. They’ve served me well. All this makes me sound like a proper painted doll doesn’t it? I’m not though. I left that behind in the 80’s. My days of not venturing outside the house without a full face on are long since gone. I don’t wear make-up every day, and how much I wear depends a lot on my mood and where I’m going. I’m not a full make-up every day person at all. I have used it enough to have found ways of applying it that gives a decent result though, and I’ve tried enough lipsticks to know a good one from a bad one. Boots No7 Luscious Lipcolour isn’t the best on the market, but at £5.50 a tube, I really don’t think anybody could complain much about it. If I can look ok without having to take up a bank loan to do it, I’m happy. This one does the job nicely. ~~+~~+~~
I really can't believe I'm just about to write an opinion about a lipstick or in this case a make up range. Anyone who knows me knows that the make up bag just comes out on special occasions and as a rule I don't wear it very much at all. Sometimes if I'm feeling down I slap on a face to cheer me up. Because I don't wear make up much my mascara's and foundations usually have to be replaced practically brand new as germs bred and you have to replace them at least every six months.With christmas and all those parties coming up I needed a new lipstick and mascara and I headed to boots. They were running a special offer on certain ranges such as no.7 and no.17 that if you spent more than £15 you recieved a lovely jewelry set free. I would have paid £15 just for the jewelry which was small square silver studded earings and a matching necklace it was just what I would have wanted to recieve as a christmas pressie. I stopped at the lipsticks first and in particular the lucious range and after testing several on my hand I chose number 15 plum beautiful which is as the name suggests a plum coulor but subtle not a deep purple. It cost £5.50 and I nearly gagged at the price as the most I have ever spent on a lipstick before is £3 as I don't wear it much. I chose the ultimate volumising mascara in black at the price of £6 which is what I normally pay so I wasn't to bothered with the price of that. To complete my purchase I chose the skin defence loose powder in translucent as my sister gave me a foundation which is too light for her, the loose powder cost me £7 so it was just as well I didn't have to purchase a foundation too. I bought my purchases and recieved my free jewelry which is priced at £20 alone and you could actually give this to someone as a gift and they would never guess that it was a freebie. This offer lasts right up to christmas eve and is superb value especially if this is
your usual brand of make up. Anyway back to the lipstick it went on smoothly and felt creamy which felt great and I now know why people spend a bit more on lipsticks. It lasted well and I applied it before eating my dinner and it was still on after I had finished. I wore it to the bingo and got loads of comments and after biting my lips more than once it was still in place at the end of the night and I had only reapplied it once. The next time I go to purchace a lipstick which will probably be next christmas I'll go for this range again. Go and check out the free jewelry though it's a bargain it's self
I use two different No7 lipsticks, one is from their luscious lipcolour range. Now using the other type of lipstick gives me no problems and neither does any other brand. Unfortunately the luscious lipcolour keeps breaking. I don't use a lip brush to apply my lipstick and after just a handfull of uses this particular lipstick just snaps off near the base. I don't use it any differently to my other lipsticks and I never get this problem with them. I think it would be OK if you used a brush as you then apply less force to the lipstick. The lipstick itself is great, it gives good coverage and is moist enough to feel comfortable (I suffer with dry lips). The range of colours if really good and the price is average for a cheaper brand. The added bonus from buying No 7 products is the offers. Often you get a free gift for purchasing a set number of items from the range. At home I have a variety of make up bags and wash bags all with the No 7 logo and the last free gift was a nice watch. Buy this lipstick but be careful how you use it or it will snap.
