These were selling half price in my local Boots recently and although Seventeen is not tested on animals, the parent company of Boots is Walgreens who do still test on animals. So depending on where you stand with the whole funding the evil parent company thing, it’s up to you whether to make a purchase on these or not. I don’t buy as much own range from Boots as I used to for this reason but I was willing to pay half price for the products on this occasion.
I bought 2 shades – If You Please and Deep Secret.
The packaging is nice, it’s very sleek and stands out of the crowd compared to other drugstore lipsticks. The bullet has a nice heavy weight to it and the mirror finish makes the product look as if it cost at least double what I actually paid.
Moving on to the formula, I wasn’t that impressed with it. On application it errs on the side of being a sheer lipstick, moving in to the center of the lip and you can see the colour isn’t as intense as it could be. It’s a lovely conditioning formula that carries a good 4-6 hours wear with it, the darker shades fade away in to a nice matte staining.
Overall, I would repurchase this lipstick but definitely not for the full price for the reason that I could buy a purely cruelty free option of a better quality for a fraction of the price.
Love and (high)light✌
