Bourjois Colour Boost Glossy Lipstick...

Over the past couple of weeks I've picked up a few little bits of makeup from Boots and Superdrug, most of which are new releases, so here is the first post of what could be many...

These Color Boost Glossy Lipstick's are Bourjois' newest addition, and I can't help but think that they look a lot like the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains (see my review here) and the Clinique Chubby Sticks, in that the packaging is almost identical, and the product has the same crayon shape. 
However, the formula itself isn't really the same at all, these are much more sheer and glossy, more like a tinted lip balm rather than a lipstick! I bought 3 because they were on 3 for 2, and I OBVIOUSLY couldn't just buy one! There are only 4 colours in the collection at the moment, the other colour was a cherry red called Red Sunshine (which I may have to pick up shortly, as I can't have it feeling left out can I?!).

(L-R Peach on the Beach, Orange Punch, Fuchsia Libre)

I actually quite like that these are semi opaque as it make them very wearable when you want something nice and easy to throw on in this warm weather! I also think the colour range is great and very summer appropriate, so Bourjois definitely gets top marks for all that! The formula is lovely and moisturising with a glossy finish, but it's not sticky at all, and there is also the added bonus of SPF 15 to protect your lips.

However, despite the 10 hour claim, on me they are not particularly long lasting, with maybe two hours wear before it needed reapplying. The colour does tend to stay on a lot better around the edges of the lips but after a few hours a lot of the colour disappears off the inner part, but that could just be me! 
I don't mind reapplying lipstick every now and again so it's not a massive bug bear for me, but for those people that like to apply lipstick in the morning and have it stay put all day, this is probably not the product for you! 

The peachy pink shade doesn't really suit my colouring but it is still a lovely colour none the less! The other colours, however, are gorgeous and I've been loving wearing them for a pop of colour during the day... 

They are £7.99 and currently on 3 for 2 in Boots so I would definitely recommend checking them out!!
