Berry nice

Kiss kiss. Christmas is fast approaching and the mistletoe is beckoning. Regardless of time of year and social expectations, I believe you should always take care of your lips. The saying goes 'the eyes have it all' but lips also deserve to be treated. So apply, blot and pout (not literally speaking of course). Lets see what Boots have released for you beauties this Winter.

17 cosmetics have a new lip stain out which is similar to Rimmel's '1000 kisses lips stain', you can read my Rimmel review here. But does 17' 'Berry crush lip stain' measure up to Rimmel's efforts? Read on, dear readers, read on....

I was in a rush when I bought it so I didn't test out the colour on my hand before, rather daftly I know, so I pretty much was swayed by the packaging colour. I was expecting a soft, candyfloss pale pink but I got a rich, fuchsia colour. At first I was a little off put but on second thoughts I actually liked the colour and it made a nice change to a red lip on a night out.

The same as the Rimmel lip tint, the application is simple; draw the colour on with stain stick and then a quick slick of the moisturisiser stick to lock in the colour and add a subtle hint of shine. I found when wearing this product the moisturiser had to be reapplied often but the colour was long lasting, suprisingly so.

Verdict-Make sure you test the product first, but this is a great inexpensive product, at £4.99, £1 cheaper than the Rimmel version. I can't recommend this enough, the colour is extensively long lasting, vivid and who doesn't love a fuschia lip?

I'm so sorry I haven't had time to reply to your lovely comments this week! I'm on the case.

  29. I love lip stains! Too bad this brand isn't available anywhere near me...I don't think. I recently tried the NYC brand lip stains and they are a good price and seem to be similar to these (unfortunately the color I got was WAY too bright). I would love to try those Rimmel ones, I'll keep an eye out for them and hopefully they sell them here in the states :)
