Boe Professional Lipstick Swatches | Luxe for Less

Happy Thursday friends!

Today we're talking about my favourite lipstick shades and formulas from the Boe Professional range available at Big W. My tried and tested favourites include shades from a glossy peach to a vibrant matte red, which means there will be something for everyone.

These lipsticks were kindly gifted to me from Boe Professional when I attended their VIP day last month and I have been watching and testing them ever since!

Read on to see what I think of them!



I am a sucker for a bold, matte lip so I can guess that's why I love the Soft Velvet Matte formula so much. 'Vixen', is definitely as vivacious and daring as the name would suggest and wears really well on my lips.

The Vibrant Colour Last range is a step down from their matte formula and a little more on the glossy side. Unfortunately, some of the opacity of the lipstick is lost in the creamier formula, which I would normally oppose to. However, I really like the way it feels and wears on my lips, especially for the more muted, pinky shades such as 'Morocco' and 'Aphrodite'. 

The glossiest and 'wettest' formula in the range is the Water Gloss Super Shine lipsticks and I have mine in the shade, 'Athena'. It is quite an orangey-peach tone, one I definitely wouldn't reach for normally, but I actually love the colour and formula of this lipstick and think it would be an absolute winner for Spring/Summer. 

I also think I favour this shade the most because one of my best friends is named Athena so it's almost like having a shade named after me! Hey, a girl can dream!



As you can see from the swatches above, these colours are just gorgeous!

My personal favourites are 'Aphrodite' and 'Morocco' from the Vibrant Colour Last range and 'Vixen' which is a Soft Velvet Matte formula.

  3. Nice review! I really like the vibrant colors especially Charity but I think I'll go for Morocco for everyday makeup :)
