This super moisturising vitamin enriched lipstick is just the best lipsick I have ever tried! I normall try cheap lipsticks but after trying this I will always stick to the No.7 brand. It contains UVA/UVB sun protection, which is extremly useful as it will protect your lips against the sun's damaging rays. I took my lippy on holiday with me so druing the day I knew that my lips where being protected from the sun. It gave my lips a great colour that did last a considerable long time. It stayed on my lips for approximatly 4-5 hours and it continues to moisturise my lips after applying it. When you apply this lipstick you can instantly feel the moisture it is giving your lips. revious to buying this lipstick, I only brought cheap ones which never seemed to last and always rubbed off at the slightest touch and didn't give any moisture to my lips whats so ever. The lipstick itself feels very rich in colour and has a silky smooth texture which feels great when applying it. It comes in a range of beautiful colours, all £7.50 each which I think is a good price for an excellent quality lipstick. The colours that this lip stick comes in are... SWOON HOT FUDGE MORELO CHERRY MELONWOOD FUSHIA GAY GERANIUM SAFFRON CHAMPAGNE TRANQUIL ROSE SWEET LIPS GLACE CHINA PINK STARSHELL GRACE TICKLED PINK CAFI BARE JEWEL UNDER THE SUN CLASSIC ROSE so get down to your local boots chemist shop and choose a colour that would suit your face and colouring. I was unsure what colour would suit me, so I asked the sales woman who advised me to go for either bare, which is a neutral colour which really complimented by colouring and looked great after she applied it with some clear gloss on top, or china pink which is a really cute pale pink that's great for day wear. The range of colours is great. There are some for evenings and som
e of day and some for whenever!
I bought Boots No.7 Moisture Active Lipstick No 420 Hickory after trying my friends before a party. I usually dont wear lipstick as I tend to have licked it all off within the hour! But htis lipstick is the exception. The colour is beautiful - strong deep, almost matt shade and very lucious! If you apply it direct in 1 coat onto your lips I find the durability is not that high. However I bought the No.7 retractable lip brush (£6.00) and use that to apply it and the durability is much improved. I will spend alot of time on my lips and follow a routine to get it to stay; 2 coats applied with lip brush and dabbed with a tissue, then I dab my foundation powder over to seal slightly, then directly over another 2-3 coats applied with lip brush and dabbed again with tissue. Then finally 1 coat applied directly from lipstick to lips. Alot of hassle maybe but this routine will prevent the lipstick from coming off all night - if you like me, spend most of night licking your lips! No.7 lipstick will last all night with this and is well worth buying - it is not greasy at all and has a lovely expensive looking packaging. It also lasts ages as I have had mine for a year and it is still gots loads of shelf life left. I have bought many colours since but this is my favourite!
