Hello friends! The exact products mentioned in this blog post are no longer available – BUT, that’s because Perricone MD have relaunched their lip products, and you can read my review of the new ones here.
A while ago, I was lucky enough to be sent a parcel of five lipglosses to try for Stylist Magazine’s Best Beauty Awards. There were some definite misses in that selection (never talk to me about Lancome Juicy Shakers, urgh) but amongst some disappointments, there was a clear winner…. Perricone MD No Lipgloss Lipgloss (£25 on Look Fantastic).
I was completely besotted with the rich, buttery, consistency of this lipgloss, as well as the way it glided onto my lips and the stunningly perfect colour. The translucent dusty rose tint was just so unbelievably flattering, and I couldn’t stop wearing it. It isn’t sticky at all, just silky and smooth, and it’s SO nourishing. As you’ve probably guessed from the name, the point of this product is that it enhances your natural features without looking like you’re ‘wearing something’, and it really does achieve this. Plus, it left my lips soft and plumped too so I didn’t even need to use lipbalm when I was wearing it. I just LOVE the stuff. And here’s the proof…
Not gonna lie, it’s pretty cool to be quoted in Stylist Magazine, and I really meant it. I had never used something that felt as good. And here, to drive the point home, are four photos of me wearing No Lipgloss Lipgloss. I’m aware that I’m not very photogenic, but let’s not dwell on that. Whenever I wear this lipgloss, I feel great about myself.
And here is a mega close-up so you can really see it!
So yeah, Perricone MD No Lipgloss Lipgloss pretty much makes it to the top of my lip-product list, but it doesn’t stop there!! Perricone MD very kindly sent me their amazing No Lipstick Lipstick* to try as well! This is very similar to the lipgloss, it’s just as nourishing and has the same scent and tint, but isn’t as glossy so it looks much more natural. Whereas with No Lipgloss, it’s obvious that you are wearing something, with No Lipstick it really does just look like your lips. The No Lipstick Lipstick was also used by Wonder Woman’s makeup artists in the new film, which is pretty cool!
Here is a comparison so you can see properly see the difference between them…
And here’s a photo with it on – you can see how similar the colours are but just with less shine, right?!
I find myself using the No Lipstick everyday now, because it’s such a natural colour and is so easy to reapply on the go, while now I save the No Lipgloss for special occasions. I can’t describe how impressed I am with Perricone’s Lip Products, and I should also note that I’ve been using the No Lipgloss Lipgloss regularly since very early this year and there’s still LOADS left! They’re both available on Look Fantastic – here’s No Lipgloss Lipgloss, and here’s No Lipstick Lipstick.
