Boots No7 are taking lips seriously this season by releasing some fabulous new products, some of which I’ll be sharing with you over the coming weeks. You may recall my post on the No7 High Shine Lip Crayons, which were pretty much No7’s take on the Chubby lip. They’ve now launched their version of the intense take on the Chubby. Not particularly original, but still something to check out.
There are currently only two shades in the High Shine Intense Lip Crayon range, but hopefully this will change soon. Thankfully, the two shades are bang on trend for the autumnal berry lips, and as lip products go they deliver really well on both colour payoff and formula. The formula is creamy and kind to lips, yet this doesn’t come at a detriment to the colour payoff, which is very much intense as the name suggests. The crayon itself is a bit like a stretched version of the High Shine Lip Crayon as it’s thinner with a marginally more pointed tip.
Romantic Soul is more of a plum-leaning shade with hints of fuchsia that give it a slightly purple finish.
It’s actually a very pretty shade that works the transition from Summer to Autumn well and would probably suit most skintones, although I think it would look especially good against darker skins.
Sultry Kiss is my least favourite of the two, and yet I think it suits me more than Romantic Soul, annoyingly!
It’s a true red berry shade that stays firmly within the port/claret shade spectrum. This is the shade for the paleys I think, and it’s quite an easy shade to wear considering it’s so deep in colour.
These are definitely Chubbies with impact, as on initial application they deliver a strong pop of colour, which fades gradually and evenly to a stain that is still visible after eating and drinking freely. Therefore, if the originals were too sheer/short-wearing for you, these will definitely be a better choice. Boots N07 High Shine Intense Lip Crayons are available now priced at £9 each – link. It’s worth noting that there’s currently a Buy One Get One Half Price deal going on, meaning you could pick up both for £13.50 which is not bad at all.
