Boots no7 Sheer Temptation Lipstick Review

I was on a red lipstick craze, and picked out this lipstick in Smoulder.  I did not even know it was sheer until after I got it home.  It is a really nice product!

In the tube, it is really red!

But it is a sheer lip product.  The formula is so nice and rich, very much like lip balm.  It has no taste.  It has the same texture as a really nice moisturizing lip balm.  I really liked it.  It feels so buttery smooth on, not drying at all.  It is so conditioning, it's like lotion for your lips.  It's not creamy, but not greasy either.  I kept pressing my lips together just to feel the smoothness- I really liked it.  I liked it so much, that I picked up another one- this time I got Entice.  I really loved that one too; it has a little shimmer in the tube but does not apply shimmery at all.  What is funny, is that it has the same exact colour and texture as a lipstick I got many moons ago in Germany, I dont even remember what it was. 

Here are the swatches of both, Smoulder on the left, Entice on the right:

Although they are sheer, they still deposit some colour- Smoulder more noticeably so. 

Here is how Smoulder applied on my lips:

And here is my latest attempt at lip swatch photos:


Overall, I really enjoyed this product and I would recommend it, but it isn't a typical lipstick.  Rather, I would classify it as a tinted lip sheen.  The texture alone makes it worth trying, but if you're going for colour, I would recommend one of the darker shades.  


  1. this is a gorgeous color! very pretty and it looks great on you! I have been meaning to try this brand out, just have not gotten around to it

  2. Both colors are very pretty on you! I may have to give these a try!

  3. These are super pretty! I really like Entice...but I'm tempted to try Smoulder because it may be baby steps toward a red for me lol. Thanks for the review and swatches!!

  4. Entice is so up my alley, it looks beautiful!

  5. Mmmm that Entice colour is gorgeous :)

  6. Hey there,
    can you find out what German lipstick it was? Since this one is produced in Germany as well - and I live there and we don't have No7 etc. ;)
