Hi everyone and welcome to a brand new type of post for me. I thought it would be fun to review some makeup products and see if they do as they claim.
Whilst shopping in town i popped into Boots and had a browse around the different makeup. I have been looking for a lipstick for work that is long lasting so I do not have to reapply it. There are so many brands claiming to do this and it gets so confusing.
Anyway, I spotted a brand I have not used in years! And when I say years I mean years. I used to use this as a teenager because it is so affordable. Seventeen is still as good value as ever although there are even more affordable brands out there nowadays. Luckily Seventeen also has an offer of buy one item get one half price so it would have been rude not to buy something.
I chose a lipstick from the ‘Stay Pout’ range which is supposed to be long wearing. It is under £5 and there are 15 shades to chose from (but the shade I wanted was out of stock … grrrrr). I ended up choosing ‘Just a Fling’ which is a nice peachy nude perfect for daytime wear.
I have uploaded a video onto YouTube showing how it applied and then I did a few check ins throughout the day after eating and drinking to show how well it was holding up to it’s claims. You can view the video below….
I think this lipstick was ok as far as lipsticks go. It lasted fairly well but no where near what I was expecting. It was a nice formula and felt comfortable to wear however I think that it would need reapplying after 4- 5 hours. I would be happy to purchase again in another shade.
