My love of lipstick is fairly well-known, I think, after all, there’s a reason this blog is called “Get Lippie”! Even before I started blogging my lip product collection numbered in the (low-ish) three figures, and now I am a fully-fledged five year plus blogger the only reason my lipsticks don’t take over the entire house is because I’m fairly ruthless at editing my collection every once in a while and donating anything I haven’t used in a month or three to charity. That said, there are lipsticks in every room of my house, and from the sofa where I’m sitting blogging right now, I can see around 100 lipsticks or so on the book case on the other side of the room … oh well, everybody needs a hobby, right? And they are very decorative. THEY ARE.
What might be less-known is that I also love finding lipsticks for other people. I’ve spent many lovely hours in department stores around the country
terrorising sales assistants finding gorgeous lipsticks for my friends, family and even complete strangers, helping to find them that perfect shade that complements their skin, their eyes, their hair and the occasion they need the lipstick for. I’m a firm believer that there’s a perfect red lipstick for absolutely everyone, too. Everyone.
But I can’t be everywhere, sadly. So, when I heard about the new No7 Match Made Lipstick service, I was intrigued. Based on their foundation-matching technology, Boots No7 have now created 43 lipstick shades and grouped them according to how well they go with each individual No7 foundation shade. You go to your favourite Boots store (we’ve all got one), ask them to scan your skin tone, and you’ll come away with a little card that groups your best shades of pink, coral, red, plums and natural lipsticks, in a variety of moisturising and matte finishes. It’s painless, and really good fun!

I popped along to Boots on Oxford Street last Saturday to see the lipstick matching in action, and help people with their pressing lipstick questions – we had lots of fun! We had a photobooth, and we spent a happy hour or four getting people matched up with their best shades, then going for a little singalong in the booth before taking pics of ourselves in our new lipstick shades. We met some lovely people, and if you were one of them, thank you for popping by!

So, if you can’t afford a personal shopper, and you don’t have a blogger handy to help pick out your best colours (and hey, who does?), why not pop along to your nearest Boots and let No7 take the strain?
