Lipstick faves

I’m never really been much of a Lipstick-wearing kinda gal, but I’ve made a personal exception for these three.
The first is a very peachy pink colour. I wear this if I just want to bring a bit of colour to my lips when my facial make up is a bit bland. It is Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Creme in 117 Almost Nude. The stick itself is very simple with the Revlon Gold band across the middle and a transparent top of the lid.
The second is by No7. It is more of a purpley red colour which I wear on a night out if my hair is down and I’m not wearing much eye make-up, to add a bit of colour to my face. Again, this lipstick has a very simple design to the tube with nothing but the No7 logo on the lid. This lipstick is No7 Moisture Drench in 25 Highland Mist.
The third is another favourite of mine. It is a very pinky colour, a colour you’d almost associate with Barbie. But really nice once it’s on! The tube itself is again very simple, with a cream coloured lid and base with a gold band with the brand name on. I wear this during the day, again when I’m not wearing much make up. This lipstick is Dr Pierre Ricaud Révèle Éclat Rouge éloquent Lipstick in Rose perlé. I have no idea how I came about owning this to be honest!
Here’s a swatch to show you what they look like colour-wise :)
I have to say.. My favourite is the Revlon Almost Nude. It is such a natural colour; you can wear it anywhere.. or even just wear it for the sake of wearing lipstick! The stick itself is very nourishing and moisturising on the lips, unlike others I’ve come across which have just dried my lips out.
These are the three I use the most :)


  1. Hi Jasmine - I can no longer seem to find the No. 7 Moisture Drench lipstick in 25 / Highland Mist. Looks like they've reused the Highland Mist name and it's now assigned to number 1 - color online at least looks a pale peachy colour!! Would you know what Boots has done with the lovely original H.M. colour? Thanks!

  2. Hi, I know they had a whole revamp of their lipstick range a while back and started again with the numbering but I have tried looking for the same lipstick as this but have been unsuccessful. I'll try and find the closest thing to it for you next time I'm at the No.7 counter though! Xx

    1. Hi Jasmine, thanks much - looking forward to your full report when you've had the chance. I live in the US and the full range of No. 7 Moisture Drench lipsticks aren't carried here. Cheers!

    2. I was at the No. 7 concession in a large Boots the other day and the closest thing I could find to my Highland Mist's dark pinky peach was either 32 or 33 (Winter Berry or Salsa) so give them a try :) Xx
