Long summer days call for a lip product that lasts. We’ve been through the beauty bin and took Bourjois Paris Colour Boost Glossy Finish Lipstick for a test run.
Review by: Jenny Tang-Clarke
The Stila Colour Balm Lipstick promises the ‘full pigment-load’ of a lipstick and the ‘nourishing properties’ of a balm. This hybrid came through as a lip balm, but fell short in the lipstick department.
The product: Stila colour balm lipstick, $22
Name of colour: Avery (soft peachy coral)
Application: It went on smoothly, and despite the thickness of the lipstick, it maneuvered the edges and corners of my lips very well.
