“ Brand: Boots / Type: Lipstick / Suitable for: Lip / What it does: Vitalizes, „
Recently I received a No7 £5 voucher from Boots for spending over £5 in store. They run this promotion a lot and I usually use the vouchers to buy the No7 quick thinking wipes, however as I was walking by the No7 stand I noticed their new in Limited Edition collection, and this 'Vital Brights' lipstick really stood out to me. There was only two shades available, blossoming pink which is the one in the image above, and blooming pink which is a slightly darker shade of pink.
I really like bright colours for the spring/summer and so this was the perfect time to purchase a new bright lipstick. The blossoming pink shade is the one that caught my eye as it was the brightest, and I wasn't too keen on the other shade, and so I purchased the blossoming pink one. It does look very bright in the image but it doesn't look exactly that when on your lips. It does still appear a lovely bright pink colour though and I love it, it is perfect for the spring/summer.
One thing I noticed straight away when I applied this was its gorgeous scent! Not all lipsticks taste nice but this one does, it reminded me of the smell of minty tic tacs... before you actually eat them!
The lipstick itself is also quite glossy. It left my lips not only bright pink but also with a subtle shine and my lips felt really moisturised after applying it. I am used to using lipstick from Rimmel which doesn't leave my lips feeling moisturised, if anything I always think it will dry them out. There is no need to keep applying this lipstick as it does last on the lips for a couple of hours, but I actually like to keep applying it because of how it leaves my lips feeling, and for its lovely taste it leaves.
This lipstick is priced at £10, but I purchased mine for £5 after using the No7 voucher. As it is part of the Limited Edition collection for the new season trend, this won't be available all year round. Therefore, if you are interested in trying this out then don't wait too long!
If you don't like to wear bright lipsticks like this shade then the other shade 'blooming pink' may be more appealing to you, but it is a great lipstick and it's a shame this isn't available in more shades. It has got me wanting to try the other lipsticks available by No7 though to see if they also have the same kind of results as this one.
