First Time for First Impressions

So today I'm going to do my first ever first impressions post!
I'm excited for this because though I'm new to the blogging world I thought I would just dive right in!

The product I am reviewing today is Boots 17 Ultimate Volume Lip gloss in the colour Very Berry.

 <--This is the product, It comes in a simple clear tube and a gloss black lid :) I love it when gloss comes in a clear tube so you can actually see the colour, especially as I don't personally think that the swatches that boots has on their website are very accurate - well at least for this colour. The swatch made it look as though it would be a deep pink/purple where as it is more of a deep pink/red. I think it goes better with my skin tone anyway.

This was just after I applied it for the first time and it was taken at 9:47am just before I left for work :)

The colour is really pigmented but I love it anyway. I did apply a small amount of my Barry M lipstick in the shad 121 which is like a pillar box red :)
There is no smell or taste so I think that can be a good thing, no risk of unpleasantness.

It glides on really smoothly and there is no sort of sticky feeling but as I precaution I always wear my hair back/up if I'm wear gloss because I'm at risk of my hair sticking to the gloss :(

I took two pictures this morning and the first one shows the lip gloss perfectly but I like the second photo.

I really didn't do a lot with my make up this morning, just;
-M.A.C Fix+
-M.A.C Studio Scult foundation in NC15
-Arch de Triumph by Soap and Glory
-Coco Crazy mini pallet by Max Factor
-Gel Eyeliner by Maybelline
-M.A.C Fast Black Zoom Lash Mascara
-Barry M lipstick in 121
-And of course Boots 17 Ultimate Volume Lip gloss in Very Berry.

When I got to work I decided to take another picture of this and it was at 10:12am and the colour had started to become uneven and wear off.

I wasn't expecting it to stay on for too long but I would have loved it to have been a stain and not a regular gloss.
So if you're looking to buy this be prepared to reapply over and over .

I didn't bother uploading a photo from after work because it had completely vanished though I just had a regular day at work so I was eating and drinking which I think did get rid of a lot of it.

I would certainly say that if you want a regular lip gloss with a high pigment then you should definitely try this one especially as it is only £3.99! So for that price you can't go wrong :)
I hope you like it :)

P.S - Please excuse the awful hairstyle :P
