No7 Limited Edition : Brigette Lipstick

Thursday, 10 February 2011

Hi Ladies, 

Hope you're all well. Only two days left of the working week, Yay! Bring on the weekend! 

 Thank you all for the lovely comments on my last post! I have a list of posts to do now to keep me busy! :-) Keeping on the lipstick theme....I've seen a few bloggers doing posts on the No7 Spring limited Edition range and the main item that caught my eye was the lipstick in 'Brigette' So as soon as I got into boots afterwork one evening I was on the hunt. I found the stand, and to be honest, it looked barely touched.. Yes I know they get re stocked but I dont know if it's my town or something but I find whenever theres a product that other bloggers find it really hard to get hold of (hello backcomb in a bottle) the stores I go to seem to always have them stocked (So if you are ever in need of anything I would be happy to help out and see if I can track it down for you, depending where it is from of course!).. anyway...

I feared it would be sold out, as what girl doesnt like a pink lip? But there they were, stood in a row the Brigette lippys! So of course I picked one up. Unfortunately I didnt have a NO7 Voucher so I paid full price for this baby which was £10.00. As a rule I dont like to spend more than that on a lipstick, so this was at the top of my budget!

I really like the packaging for the lipstick, instead of the usual plastic casing it has the hard cardboard style case, with a gorgeous graffitti pattern over it. I do worry that this could get ruined quite easily if you are one to just chuck a lippy in a bag (me) rather than storing it in a makeup bag. We shall see over time though!

The colour pay off for this lipstick is really good, when you look at it in the tube its a bit. 'Oh my gosh this is going to be mega bright', but actually its the opposite! You can swipe it quickly on your lips for a quick pink sheen, or build it up for a more brighter colour. I think it would look fab with smokey eyes for a night out. Which is what I plan to do next time Im out on the town! It isnt drying and goes on smoothly, It's similar to No17 mirror shine lipsticks as it has a bit of a shine to it and feels pretty moisturising. 

Heres a picture of me wearing it....(posing again)

As you can see it is a really pretty shade, its got the right amount of pink and lilac in it. I dont know if it is one that would suit everyone though, I couldnt advise on what skin tones should and shouldnt wear it as I am no makeup artist! I just suggest trying it out and deciding for yourself!

Has anyone else got this lipstick, I am so tempted to try out the coral shade they have to offer too... tempting... :-)

Much love..
