A few weeks ago Boots had a deal where you could get a free set of No7 goodies if you bought two No7 products. I needed new mascara so bought two to get my freebies. One of the free gifts was the No7 Moisture Drench lipstick in Mulberry. I only own one other lipstick and it happens to be from the same range. I wasn’t sure I would be able to pull off a lipstick that looks so red but it actually looks ok as it’s not too bright. The colour is more sheer than it looks in the tube but you can build it up easily enough to a deep colour if that’s what you prefer. I love that this lipstick feels almost like a lip balm and doesn’t dry my lips out at all. It’s nice to be able to mix up my makeup a little with brighter than normal lips!
I’ve never really been into wearing colour on my lips and usually just wear one of my excessively many lip balms. I decided that seeing as I now have my degree (yay!) it was about time that I bought some more “grown up” makeup so I popped into Boots to try and find my first lipstick. In the end I decided to go for a No7 Moisture Drench lipstick in the shade Pink Lemonade which is a really subtle pink shimmer.
The main reason I’ve been put off lipstick in the past (aside from the fact that I don’t think I could pull off a bright colour!) is that I had it in my head that lipstick would leave my lips really dry. So far I’ve not had that problem with the Moisture Drench – it is actually really almost the same as wearing a lip balm.
The Moisture Drench lipsticks cost £10 each but there always seems to be some sort of offer on No7 products! I really like this lipstick and it’s made me much less scared of trying new colours!
