New Fave Lippy: No7 Moisture Drench in Waterlily

I took one look at this lipstick, new from No7, as part of their Limited Edition Ballerina Beauty Collection and thought, Nah. Too coral-ly for me.


Gotta love my open-mindedness. Chiding myself, I lashed some on, and voilá!


I love it! It’s so pretty, and fresh! And it as moisture-drenching as it claims in the name.

Also on the face, which isn’t shown to its best effect from that NO 7 BB CREAMastonishingly unflattering angle, is Beautiful Skin BB Cream, also from No7. This comes in three styles, for Dry/Very and Normal/Oily, in addition to the Normal/Dry that I am using.

I haz ambivalence re: BBs, and tend to only like those that are within spitting distance of being foundation. This gives great coverage, and yet I had that psychological benefit of not feeling like I had the fuss of foundation to deal with.

^^^ I don’t even know what that means, really. Foundation isn’t that much of a hassle, it’s not like, I don’t know, trying to shave your legs under pressure, or something. Foundation seems to imply Serious Day Ahead, maybe? Eh, let’s humour me, shall we?

Yes, Sue, there is a difference in attitude between foundations and BB creams…

Wait. That may be true.


No7 Moisture Drench Lipstick in Waterlily is €12.25; Beautiful Skin BB Cream is €16.95.
