Make-up: Boots No7 Stay Perfect lipstick in Classic Rose

Another pink lipstick review to add to my collection, this time a look at a classic dusky pink lipstick that’s rather nice for daytime wear. Kind of Grace Kelly-esque. In some ways this is a similar shade to Rockalily Vintage Vixen but Classic Rose is slightly darker and is actually more matte.
So, here is a Boots No7 lipstick, Stay Perfect in shade Classic Rose.

As you can see, applied more lightly it looks quite natural – on me it’s almost like a slightly darker version of my actual lip colour so rather flattering.
  • Lovely dusky pink shade
  • Has a vintage vibe as it is matte
  • Colour lasts well and wears quite evenly
  • Colour is buildable
  • Doesn’t bleed
  • Can hardly notice you’re wearing it
  • Good value for money at £9.50


  • Slightly drying
  • Texture can highlight imperfections on the lips
  • Strange blunt-shaped bullet means to get clean lines you may need a brush
All in all though, quite impressive for a lipstick under £10. It helps that I do like the colour, but if you didn’t, to get a nice matte lipstick in another colour it may be worth checking the range out.
