No7 Stay Perfect Lip Lacquer Review

Alright guys, ill make this one reasonably quick, i havent made a makeup review in a while and i hit the boots store in stoke today.
I purchased one of these little miracle workers last year but found it again the other day hiding in one of my old bags. So i started to use it, the shade i got you can't actually buy anymore, which i was quite disappointed about, however i decided to try a new shade :)

So instead of reviewing my old colour, i'll head straight on and review the Flamenco Red Lacquer. 

The perfect red lips - the definition of this came from generations of famous iconic women sporting perfect scarlet flame red lips, teamed with pin up poses and vintage outfits. But the actual process behind getting the perfect red lips was always a myth, tried with many methods and i myself have only found one solution. 
And i think this may just be it.
So let me introduce the Flamenco Red shade.
the idea behind this double ended wand is simple. the gloss end is gloss and the colour end is a creamy colour rich lacquer that stays on for hours. And i mean HOURS. this stuff is serious business when it comes to staying put. If you work, go to college, like to drink til dawn or wear it everyday, it is guaranteed to last you, with just one application.

Application is simple. its double ended, and applies as youd think, colour then gloss, or just each on their own. Either way, its smooth and glides on easy, and lasts forever.
One tip i found though - when you apply the colour end first, it takes about 30 seconds to dry, using the wand, make a smooth layer over your upper and lower lip, don't close you're mouth, or rub together, because the colour wont go smooth. wait until it is completely dry, then apply the gloss over the top. there shouldnt be any excess if you apply properly, so the product lasts a long time when used correctly. 
The gloss side in theory should be used up quicker than the colour side of course. 

Here is an example of the product on myself :)

(colour is more intense in daylight, and the picture does it no justice. it really is red!)

Here are the other colours you can choose from:
And My old colour (similar to sugar mauve) next to the flamenco red:

Heres some comments from boots customers that i sourced, just to back up what ive been saying about colour lasting, high gloss finish. Even used for a wedding!

"This is by far the best lip product i have used ever! It lasts well through eating and drinking etc and i love the sugar mauve colour.
I put mine on at half 6 on a morning before work and its still visible at 1pm when on lunch. Would recomend it to anyone!"
"This lip laquer is amazing! I put it on in the morning of my wedding, topped up the gloss before we hit the bar and it still looked amazing even when we staggered back at early-o-clock in the morning!
Avoid smudging your lips together before it dries (anything up to five minutes) to get a flawless finish to your lips.
Advantages: colours your lips for hours
Disadvantages: can be difficult to removecan take several minutes to dry"
"I have this in several shades now, it's just so easy to use and I like the fact there are 2 products in one.
The Lacquer once applied stays put through the day and doesn't settle into any fine lip lines or bleed either.
I find some lipsticks can dry my lips out or make them appear thinner, with the No7 Perfect Lip Laquer its like wearing a lip balm all day."

5 / 5

And thus i rest my case. For £10, some people may grumble about the cost, but the idea is, you dont need to buy you're conventional lipstick, lipliner and gloss, just to have to re apply every hour or so to keep it in tip top condition. 
I will most likely continue to buy these as and when i run out, im just hoping they expand on shades and colours, i really fancy a high intensive mango colour! that would look amazing with red hair!

Just a quick suggestion for those who want to achieve long lasting glossy colour or those perfect red pouty lips <3
well worth the pennies!
