One of the latest offerings from Boots 17 brand is these rather funky looking lippies. At only £4.49 they are a perfect budget treat for me. The website claims “Get ultra glam, slick colour that creates the illusion of fuller, luscious lips”. I picked up a couple of eyeshadow trios too but I’ll leave these for another day.
Here I have Nudist Peach and Belle. Now despite having a drawer full of gloss I have to confess I’m a lipstick girl at heart. As much as I love the look of gloss I HATE the feel of it on my lips. Unfortunately my super dry lips sometimes aren’t up to carrying off lipstick so gloss is my only option. These lipsticks are a solution to this problem. (Nudist Peach is top, Belle is underneath). You might be wondering why there is no swatch on Nudist Peach. This is because my darling sister stole it before I could photograph one. Charming.
Naked Peach is a gorgeous toffee coloured nude, Belle is a deeper pink. Both are incredibly sheer with a high gloss finish and a hint of colour. They look like a gloss on but feel like a lipstick. They are also very moisturising. The sheer finish means you can chuck these on without a mirror. If you want opaque colour these aren’t for you. However if you want something light and easy to wear, or an alternative to sticky lip glosses this is a winner.
I think these are a super easy and wearable option for summer. I’ll definitely be picking more of these up. What are your preferences, gloss or lippie? x
