Well, there’s only one more day left in January and I’m so excited that tomorrow I will reach the one month milestone of my Simply Lippy challenge. I’m having so much fun doing it, and have to be honest, very reassured at how achievable it’s been so far. So here’s hoping that continues until the end of the year!
Today I went for a soft lip with a No7 Lovely Lips Lip Balm which I got as part of a present for Christmas, and actually didn’t realise was a balm until I applied it this morning. The shade, Parisian Pink, is a very soft shimmery pink, and as you would expect from a balm, is very light and natural.
The one thing I was hoping for with this was that it would be super hydrating as my lips felt extra dry this morning, but I’m a little disappointed to report that I was applying this over and over again throughout the day. After only a short time it would wear off my lips allowing them to become dry and cracked which is not really what you want, or expect, from a lip balm.
While it was a nice shade to try, and perfect for a soft makeup look, I don’t think this is a lippy that I’ll be rushing to use again. But, as I always say, it’s good to try out everything and that’s the whole point of this year’s challenge.
