Review: Seventeen Lasting Fix Lipstick in Dreamy

Seventeen Lasting Fix Lipstick in Dreamy - £4.29
I don't know if you know but Boots often have a clearance section and sometimes some of the items in it aren't all mushed or half used. In fact, some of the items are even sealed shut so other customers can't stick their fingers in it and mush it all up. I found this Seventeen Lasting Fix Lipstick in the clearance section for £1 and I'm not entirely sure why. Part of me thought they were discontinuing the shade but it is still on the website so maybe not. There were a few other shades in the clearance bit so I did pick up a few more but this is by far my favourite.

Seventeen describes their Lasting Fix lipsticks as:
"This collection of creamy lipsticks gives long lasting, non-drying colour that lasts up to 4 hours."

I don't usually comment on the packaging unless I have a problem with it but I love the packaging to this lipstick. I adore the pink casing which has the MAC-esque look to it which makes it look a lot more expensive than it actually is. Dreamy is the most pretty understated pink. It's warm but wearable for everyday and it reminds me of the MAC Viva Glam Nicki but not so in your face that you can't wear it to the shops without thinking you look a bit OTT. 

Dreamy has a matte finish so prepping the lips beforehand is a bit of a must as it will cling to dry areas on the lips, like most matte lipsticks do. Luckily this one isn't drying or uncomfortable to wear at all. I found it really creamy and easy to apply and it didn't drag or pull on the lips either.

One aspect of this lipstick that I didn't agree with was the lasting part. I found that it only lasted around 2-3 hours on the lips before wearing but that did involve eating and drinking. That said, I'd like to know why they are calling their lipsticks 'Lasting Fix' when they only expect them to last up to 4 hours on the lips. That doesn't seem like a long time compared to other lipsticks that don't claim as such so to only last up to 4 hours when the range is entitled Lasting Fix is a little disappointing I think.
