- This post contains sponsored content - Do you love lipstick? Do you love Diet Coke? Well today is your lucky day; running from 12th of October until the 8th November 2016 (or while stocks last), you can receive £3 off a L’Oréal Paris Color Riche lipstick in Bois de Rose, Rose Tendre or Red Passion when you purchase a 500ml bottle of Diet Coke at no less than 842 participating Boots store nationwide (please see here for your local store).
The great thing about this Diet Coke promotion is that you get to choose the shade, or collect them all - which in my opinion is pretty easily done with at least a 36% saving off the original retail price, and of course the beautiful shades on offer. If anything choosing just one lipstick to take home is the difficult part: for those who find themselves wearing light, lip plumping pink hues may I suggest L'Oréal Bois de Rose (302), for nude lipstick lovers we have L'Oréal Rose Tendre (303), and of course what is a lipstick collection without a classic red which is delivered via L'Oréal Red Passion (297). My personal favourite is L'Oréal Rose Tendre Colour Riche Lipstick, it is a great, soft pinky-brown hue that is perfect for everyday but truthfully all three shades are equally as flattering.
Once you've got your new lipstick shade, why not use it to transform your entire look? Have you ever tried wearing lipstick as a cream blush? It is surprisingly easy to do and opens your make-up bag to a whole world of new possibilities. To turn your lipstick into a blush, simply swipe your chosen shade onto the pads of your fingers and then transfer onto your cheeks and blend upwards - as the L'Oréal lipsticks are so pigmented a little goes a long way, so apply sparingly.
For those looking to achieve the illusion of plumper lips, Diet Coke have a nifty beauty hack and all you need is two lipsticks and a bottle of Diet Coke! Simply apply your go-to lipstick hade all over your lips, then choose a shade in the same colour family but slightly lighter (at least two to three shades). Next use the Diet Coke bottle lid to mark where the centre third of your lips is – that’s where you need to apply the light shade of lippie - hello fuller, pumper lips forever. The model has used the shades Rose Tendre (303) and Bois de Rose (302) both of course available within the promotion.
