Marks & Spencer Perfection Super Gloss Lipstick SPF15: Peony

Whilst the Beauty world lusts over Chanel's latest Rouge Coco Shine launch, high street favourites Marks and Spencer have only gone and produced their very own range of gloss and lippie hybrids!


Available in a delicious spectrum of 12 extremely wearable shades, Perfection Super Gloss Lipstick is advertised as offering the wearer a 'long lasting vibrant colour for smoother, fuller lips.' I picked up Peony - a super shiny blue based pink boasting SPF 15 to protect the skin.

Presented in a sleek metal case, these are pretty similar in size to that of Chantecaille's Hydra Chic. In general the packaging feels quite luxe and doesn't obviously smack of a £7.50 item; in other words, this'll look well nice in your make up bag.

When applied on the lips the first thing that hits is the somewhat rank taste and smell. If you're used to your scented lippies than the chemical aromas of this blend might be rather off putting. However, don't let that distract you too much - the formula itself is remarkably comfortable to wear and generally doesn't feel too drying. The smooth texture allows the colour to apply evenly, blocking out the more heavier tones in my natural pigmentation - something that many premium brands have failed to achieve. Whilst visually my pout definitely looked more plumped, the overall staying power wasn't as great as I'd originally hoped.

Marks and Spencer's make up is certainly growing in both quality and range, and for £7.50 these Lipsticks definitely stand up well. There is no doubt room for improvement in both the formula and texture, but if you're looking for a cheaper alternative to Rouge Coco Shine, then these might just make a happy compromise...

Marks and Spencer Perfection Super Gloss Lipstick SPF15 in Peony is available from selected stores nationwide and marksandspencer.com for £7.50
