No7 BB Lips

August 8, 2013

BB seems to the word to stick on everything in beauty-land nowadays… there’s the BB cream, BB hair care…and now BB lips. Of course I can’t help but feel a little ‘over’ the whole BB madness (you will still struggle to convince me that a BB cream is really all that more than a really nice tinted moisturiser) but overlooking the ‘BB’ name, these little tubes of lip colour from No7 are rather fabulous.

These are basically nicely tinted lip gloss/balms – maybe a little more tinted, and they have the added bonus of SPF15  but they offer a nice sheer wash of colour. Texture and shade wise, they’re very, very similar to the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector – with the main difference being the type of applicator. But I wouldn’t be shocked if they were the inspiration behind the product – no complaints from me, it’s always nice to find more affordable versions of much loved products. There will of course always be differences, but these are a nice pocket-friendly alternative.

Texture wise, they really are creamy and hydrating – easy to apply as the tint is natural and sheer. They’re ideal for easy Summer days when you want something light and easy where if it wears off you don’t really mind or feel the need to touch up. Just my sort of lip shade!

There are six shades in the range, these three are: Blush Coral (coral), Blink Pink (pink) and Ballerina (nude). The others include ‘Blush Pink’, ‘Berry Rose’ and ‘Belle Pink’ – some brighter pinky shades in there to take from Summer into Autumn.

    I’m not really into the BB cream thing, but these lip balms are actually great and the colours are lovely. I’ve got the Blink Pink and have worn it so much throughout the summer and LOVED it :o). X

    I have Blush Coral and I don’t really understand what they mean by BB lips but I do really like it. It’s just a lovely little tinted balm/gloss type product and they’re perfect for summer as they contain SPF x
