No7 Nourishing Lip Shine // Peach





I only picked this up because the packaging was pretty, I had a £5 No7 Voucher and I, yet again, had apparently forgotten that I already have a drawer full of lip glosses at home. Nothing new there!

I had high hopes for this lip gloss - The texture looked smooth and the colour close to perfection. However, although it feels smooth, colour does not transfer onto the lips at all, and instead looks like colourless goo on my lips. Really... No colour transfer whatsoever.  It looks alright, but its really nothing special. 

 I really wanted to love it, but considering the £10.50 price tag I'd much rather buy something else, even with a No7 voucher. I like my glosses to be 'true.' If I want another clear gloss I'll buy one, and I have plenty other lip glosses that give me exactly what I wish for. Granted, it does feel quite nourishing and it is shiny; but overall the lack of colour transference and it doesn't really last long either. 
Another thing to note is the incredible effort taken to squeeze anything out of the tube, and the absence of any scent - Perhaps I've been ruined by Lancome?

Has anyone else tried this? What are your thoughts?
Whats your all time favourite lip gloss?

  2. I had meant to buy this last time I was in Boots but I wasn't thinking and picked up one of the Liplicious glosses instead. Seeing these reviews on their Nourishing Lip Shine, I'm kinda glad I bought the wrong thing. Liplicious has pigmentation and subtle shimmer. :p x

  3. i think it looks nice but i agree, its definitely nothing special. thats why i don't get the fuss about the clarins ones that these are supposed to be dupes of. they're pretty average lip glosses too xx
