I've got this in one of the new colours which launch in store any day now, adding to the five the already have, and it's extremely natural. It just adds a slight hint of pink to the lips meaning it's perfect for the day under a gloss or a balm. I actually tried to take pictures of it on my lips but because of the natural colour it doesn't look like I've got anything on, so I've settled for a swatch instead. When you apply the pen it dries really quickly so you do get a little tight feeling that needs easing with a slick of balm. If you have dry or, god forbid, wrinkly lips it does have a tendency to settle into the creases or hang around the dry parts so you have to be careful to buff your lips before. The colour does hang around for a good few hours (but not infinity so don't get your hopes up) so it's a nice little addition to your day make-up bag for a snip at £6.99 (and always on offer for less.)

While I was there I also had my nails done using the new MaxFactor mini nail polishes and went for this gorgeous colour... a black/deep grey with shimmers that make it a molten delight. I was surprised at how easy it went on and how lush the colours were from the range - lilac, coral, navy, gold... definitely one to check out the next time you pop into Boots. The nail technician used three coats on this and it really catches the light. I love the idea of mini polishes too because who ever gets through a full sized one?
