No 7 BB Lips in Blush Pink - Review

Bonjour!

A good few months ago my future sister-in-law waltzed into our house sporting lovely luscious lips - she is quite a bit younger than me though so this isn't totally surprising! Of course the beauty blogger in me had to ask where she got them from so I could go out and get some for myself ...! And that's how I ended up with the  No7 BB Lips in Blush Pink ...

The No 7 BB lips is meant to provide  3 benefits in one tube - nourishment, SPF15 protection and a hint of colour.  Dead easy to apply from the little squeezy tube with it's angled applicator, it feels like a balm and looks like a lip-gloss but without the 'sticky-lip' thing (how many years did I walk around with sticky lips - did you?!).  I went for Blush Pink as I can't seem to do gloss paired with full on colour (just me) so this is ideal as it's pretty sheer. It does look quite bright in the above swatch, but as I guess my own lips are a bit darker, once on it ends up like 'my own lips' with a bit of that  juicy 'just bitten' thing? Keeps 'em feeling moisturised and plumped and the added SPF is a definite bonus, especially for the Summer months. It's all about a dewy, natural looking pout and it's a great little product to pop in your handbag for everyday wear, you know when you want a bit of something you can stick on without having to use a mirror!  Clearly I did not look in the mirror though before I took this pic as my specs are all over the place!

And speaking of pouts, I cannot do that thing.  Others can pull it off  but try as I might I am just not a 'pouter' and end up looking like a complete pratt (as you can see below) - it's one of life's great mysteries to me - please read on for your own amusement!

 a) I need the loo b)  I'm constipated or c) I have trapped wind! Take your pick!


BB Lips cost £9/11ml tube, I guess now would be a good time to get one with all the No7 money off vouchers floating around!  Have you tried the No7 BB Lips? What's your favourite balm/gloss product? And most importantly - can you pout in it?

  3. Ooh another thing for me to consider. I like anything which is a wash of colour. I've not spotted these before. I'm still on a Burts Bees fix at the moment so when that runs out (takes me forever to finish anything), I'll bear this one in mind.
