Swatches of Color Boost: Left Orange Punch, Right Peach on the Beach
As part of Bourjois Summer 2013 collection, we have four gorgeously bright lip crayons which give the likes of Clinque's Chubby Stick a run for their money. The four shades vary from a summery red, a cool toned pink, a zesty orange and a pinky coral which are perfect for adding that much needed summer colour to our lips. They're described as smooth, colourful and shiny and even have a SPF of 15 included too. The finish of the Color Boost's are glossy but not sticky, the colour is pigmented but it can be layered for a brighter look and although the colour doesn't stick around for too long a time, they do leave a subtle tint on your lips.
I have the colours Orange Punch and Peach on The Beach, two colours which are so up my street. Orange Punch is the brighter of the two, a red toned orange which is very this season, one slick is enough for me, but you can build it up for a really bright look. I love this colour with really simple bronzed make up, it's a perfect holiday colour. Peach on the Beach is my current everyday colour, a pinky coral which isn't too far away from the shade of my favourite YSL Peach passion lipstick. It's one of those colours which I think would be flattering on anyone and it's definitely a new favourite of mine.
The Color Boost lip crayons should be in Boots/Superdrug by now, I saw them in my local boots yesterday! They should retail at the price of £7.99 but if there's a introductory offer or a 3 for 2 I would definitely recommend picking a couple of these up. I know that they won't be far from my side for the rest of the summer!!
