New Sainsbury's Boutique Beauty

Sainsbury's have just launched a new own-range of make-up called Boutique. Established make-up artists have been brought on board to create the perfect collection of colours and textures. The range includes nail polishes (including Shocking Pink reviewed here), lip glosses, lipsticks and eyeshadows. 

I'm really lacking in lipsticks so I decided to try a few from the new range.

From left to right we have The Naked Truth, In the Buff and Lip in the Bud:

I'm not very confident with dark colours so these are quite nude. Perfect for everyday wear, and obviously quite on trend right now with L'Oreal launching their nude lip collection, Colour Riche Collection Privee, this month.

Here are the shades from top to bottom The Naked Truth, In the Buff and Lip in the Bud

You can see how creamy they are. Super moisturising, they last well and most importantly don't dry out the lips. My favourite of the three is In the Buff - subtle but deep enough in colour to emphasise the lips without being high maintenance and having to reapply all the time.

Sainsbury's is really upping its beauty game at the moment. With its competitors doing the same (Tesco are ploughing lots of money into their beauty halls), it seems supermarkets are looking to compete with the likes of Boots and Superdrug and Boutique is a great mid-price, quality range.

Available in stores nationwide from this month, the Boutique lipsticks are £7 each,
