Okay, so I know I'm probably slightly later with my review of these but honestly I couldn't get them anywhere! I went to 3 different Boots stores and they were all completely sold out! But really, they were worth the wait.

To begin with I was slightly confused with what these were, I saw so many of my favourite bloggers raving about them and I was so excited about all the bright colours that I rushed out to get some, sadly to be disappointed. Eventually I got my hands on them and I am so glad I persevered and waited.
They're like a cross between a lip gloss and a lip stick and have been given the name "lip lacquer", the pigment of a lipstick and the shine of a good lip gloss. They also have a nice refreshing cucumber like scent and feel very creamy on the lips. I also think they have pretty good staying power for what they are, I would say the glossy shine lasts for around 2 hours and after that they leave a nice stain that probably lasts for another 2-3 hours. They wear off nicely as well, I find with lip sticks that they fade kind of patchy and look a bit strange but these seem to fade evenly - making sure you don't look like you need to top them up!
The colours are super vibrant and pigmented, I'm so pleased with them. The colours I chose are Stellar which is a nice orange toned coral which I think will be great in the summer, Big Bang which is a bright red which I love! and Celestial which is a mauve toned pink which is great for every day wear (kind of reminds me of Revlon's balm stain in the colour Honey).
I'm definitely glad I managed to get a hold of some of these and definitely recommend them to anyone who likes wearing bright lips - I think they're also still 3 for 2 in Boots right now. They have a great range of colours form neutrals to brights and if I had it my way I would have bought all the shades! I don't think thats a good idea though!
