No7 is one of my all time favorite make up brands. I love every cosmetic I own from them, and I own a lot. This review is about two shades of No7 Moisture Drench lipstick, and one shade of No7 Stay Perfect lipstick. I really wanted to share my thoughts on No7 Wild Volume lipstick, but it seemed a bit pointless seeing as they no longer sell it, so I've just done a "mini-review" at the end - I'm sure you'll be able to find it online somewhere!

So, my No7 Moisture Drench lipsticks are great. They really do moisturise my lips without drying them out afterwards (a problem I have frequently encountered with moisturising lipsticks). They also aren't "messy"; I've used similar lipsticks that are so packed with moisture that they are a pain to apply, they go everywhere when you eat and drink, and you're afraid to touch for fear of them smudging. Another thing I like about these is that they are fairly compatible with Lipcoat, an absolute must have for me being such a lipstick-junkie, whereas other moisture lipsticks will reject it. They are brilliantly bold and super glossy resulting in some really eye-catching colours.
120 Siren is my favorite of the two shades I'm reviewing. I absolutely 100% adore this colour. It's probably my favorite red lipstick of all time, and I have more red lipsticks than you could imagine. It's shiny, completely opaque, and super bright (probably not for you if you're a little shy of bright colours). If you're a red lipstick lover, this will make a gorgeous addition to you're make up bag!
75 Sugar Plum is a "dusky plum" shade; it's much more suitable if you're not so into bright colours, but it's still very bold and gorgeously glossy! I think this one is beautifully suited to fair skin tones, but I'm sure it would look fab on all of you.
No7 Moisture Drench Lipstick is available for £9.00 from Boots stores.

I own No7 Stay Perfect lipstick in "80 Cherry". It's a gorgeous rich shade of red; it's darker than "Siren", but it's still beautifully bold. It has a matte finish and it's sparkle-free, so if you like it shiny just use a little clear gloss over the top. It's is a very "sophisticated" shade, perfect for day or night.

It has such a silky soft texture, it's absolutely divine  It really does stay put for hours, but I do like to touch it up throughout the day just to maintain that boldness. However, if you use Lipcoat over the top it doesn't need touching up at all! You don't need to worry about the colour transferring, bleeding or smudging, but be careful when applying it as these long lasting cosmetics can be a pain to correct! It doesn't dry out your lips like some similar cosmetics do, it actually gives quite a moisturising feel and makes my lips look healthy and hydrated. A clear winner, I'll defiantly be buying more shades!

No7 Wild Volume lipstick in "25 Plum Blush": I'm so disappointed these lipsticks aren't sold anymore. The shades are amazing, they're really moisturising, the lipsticks last ages, they have good staying power, they're volumising (not that my lips need it) and they are vanilla scented - what more could you want?? I have it in 25 Plum Blush; I don't know what it is that I love so much about this shade, it's not usually what I'd go for, but I just adore it. It has a super-shiny finish which does reject my Lipcoat, but I'm still in love with it! No7, please bring these lipsticks back!
As previously mentioned, No7 Wild Volume lipstick is no longer available, but you may be able to find it online somewhere!
