On Saturday I was invited down to Boots Braehead to discover the No7 Match Made Lipstick Service for myself. You may be familiar with the concept thanks to the current adverts which feature the Jessie J track "Sexy Lady"? Well let me tell you exactly how the No7 Match Made Lipstick Service works and what I think of the whole concept...
Like most women I have a favoured lipstick shade, that one lipstick that I will wear daily as I feel it suits me. Again like most it happens to be a nude hue, well a pinky nude hue MAC Angel to be exact. I don't really have the confidence for bright lipsticks and don't always feel like they suit me at the best of times. How many times has a friend said "oh I bet you'd look great in a red lipstick" and you think yeah great but in a sea of a million red lipsticks which would suit me?
Enter the No7 Match Made Lipstick Service which uses a quick gadget to scan the skin which in turn not only tells you which foundation shade you are but also what shades of lipstick within the
No7 Match Made Moisture Drench and No7 Match Made Stay Perfect Lipstick lines which are your ideal matches. The best thing about the whole service is that it is so quick and easy, you don't even need to take your make-up off which is a bonus as far as I am concerned. The little
No7 Match Made gadget quickly scans your skin, determines your skin tone and then you can use the provided shade card to try out the recommended lipstick choices. Easy peasy. You can watch the whole process here - link.
On Saturday I was lucky enough not only to have my own consultation but to also sit in on others and was surprised by just how many ladies went for the brighter lip colour than a play it safe nude. One woman told me it was the first time in years in which she had dared look at a red lipstick but really enjoyed being matched properly. The Boots No7 Match Made Lipstick Service is free, quick and fun not to mention really interesting as an over all concept. I thoroughly recommend checking it out next time you are in Boots.
