Today, I shall review one of my favourite lipsticks from the Moisture Drench series of NO 7 lipsticks – affordable Boots Product which really lives up to its quality claims. I got this as a gift from my sister from her UK trip a couple of years back and ever since, I have always wanted to try more such lipsticks from the Moisture Drench series. Fortunately, every time I go out for a vacation, I do come across a Boots store and manage to pick a color from my favourite range. Ok, so coming back to this beautiful color, this is creamy peach-brown and gives a semi matte, satin finish to the lips.
Moisturized lips are more kissable lips. Our most nourishing lip color ever, conditions as it colors to leave your lips silkily seductive. Its vitamin enriched formula cares for the lips and keeps them moisturized for up to 12 hours. Your lips will feel softer and look plumper.

My Take on Boots No. 7 Moisture Drench Shiny Conker Lipstick:
The color is not bright or bold. It is slightly glossy but does not get too shiny or over the top. Just perfect for an everyday wear or to any special occasion. I would definitely recommend it to people who are looking for a hydrating lipstick which adds lovely color as well. You could easily overlook the packaging, after all who cares when you get a wonderful product inside.
It is also hypo allergenic, fragrance free , SPF 15, so indeed takes care of your lips. For those who have access to Boots Store, you get some great deals like Buy 1 and get the second one at 50% off, do try out this one.They have some great shades in the entire Moisture Drench Range. And if the transfer bothers you a lot, try a lip sealant or the blotting paper trick.
Pros of Boots No. 7 Moisture Drench Shiny Conker Lipstick:
- Very smooth application and gives such a velvety finish.
- Does not dry out the lips well.
- Looks stunning on all Indian skin tones and will suit varied age groups.
- Highly pigmented, you would not even require a second swipe to get the perfect color.
- Sturdy packaging, no chances of the lid getting opened.
- Does not settle into fine lines.
- Hydrates yet coats the lips with a very high dose of pigment.
Cons of Boots No. 7 Moisture Drench Shiny Conker Lipstick:
- Transfers easily – you may need to do the blotting paper trick.
- Not available in India (I really wish there was some means to get it here).
- Packaging could have been better.
- A little expensive for a drugstore brand.
Yes, I will. It’s rare to get a moisturizing lipstick with good color payoff. So, a thumbs up from me for sure!
