I am not a big wearer of make-up, although I do like to wear it when I go out. Even then I don't like to go over the top. This has nothing to do with the fact that I don't like make-up, just the fact that I don't have that long to apply it.
I have been after some new lipsticks for a while, and although I like the soft shades, but not pastles, I do like the glossy lips look.
I read through a few opinions on Ciao to see what other members thought and I came to the conclusion that Boots 17 Plump up the Volume came highly rated. So off I went to treat myself.
They do this lip gloss in a range of colours, from clear right through to pinks and reds. The price is only £3.25 and if you buy 3 items in the Boots 17 range then the lowest item is free. I got 2 lip glosses and a mascara, I will do a review about the mascara at a later date.
I actuallly bought the clear lip gloss, or crystal as they put it, this is so easy to apply as there is a little applicator attatched to the lid of the gloss itself. I also got the Barley Pink, although this is more of a brown than a pink, again easy to apply.
I would say that it lasts on your lips for about 1 hour, which is round about the time that you will want the loo, and reapply you lipstick anyway.
On the side of the lip gloss it states LONG-LASTING LIP GLOSS MAKES YOUR LIPS FULLER AND MORE KISSABLE. It is also fragrance free and dermatologically tested. There you are, what more do you need to know about a lip gloss. I will add that if I have just applied my lippy, then there is no way I am going to be kissing any body. That is why I think the clear one is a good option.
