Boots No7 Match Made Lipstick Service #TaDah


On our weekly fix to Oxford street, +Cynthy Chui & I popped into Boots to try out No7 Match Made Lipstick Service

No 7 has cleverly evolved their existing foundation matching technology to the next level. Using the foundation match to find your perfect shades of pink, nude & red lipsticks.
Starting off by taking off a small patch of foundation from your jaw lines. Then using the handheld gadget to detect your perfect foundation shade. The trained No7 expert will do a scan on each side of your face - my two shades are Warm Ivory & Cool Vanilla. 

After knowing my perfect foundation shades, it's the exciting part to find that perfect lipstick!
There are two formulas available : the Moisture Drench, which is moisturising, glossy but sheerer; the Stay Perfect, which a more pigmented, matte effect and longer lasting. 

The No7 expert discussed with me of what sort of shades that I liked, she then suggested four shades for me to choose from, two from each range. In the end, I went for the Stay Perfect range in the shade Auburn Whisper - a dusky rosy nudy pink.


The shade is not very far from what I would have picked, which confirmed I have been doing the right thing all these years... Lol. It also opens me up to other colours that I would not have tried otherwise.

What surprised me is the formula. It is a matte lipstick with great staying power, but it doesn't feel drying at all! My favourite way to wear this is to take a bit of colour using my finger & apply a thin layer on my lips, almost wear it as a stain. I will wear a thin layer daily, and build it up for an evening out.

The fun didn't stop here! Now we were wearing our perfect lipsticks, we should tell the world about it & had some fun pictures taken! And this exactly what No 7 had in store, a photo booth!! Pop in there to record a 60 second video, sing to a little clip of their advert song & have a Polaroid taken for you to keep!
