17 Mirror Shine Lipstick
I never really paid much attention to 17 until last year when I bought one of their lipsticks in New Black and loved it. Since then I’ve picked up a few bits from the line but the product that has really impressed me is the Mirror Shine Lipsticks. I’m not a bit lover of gloss and the sticky, gloopyness that comes with it, so when I want something other than an opaque lip colour I use these which offer a non sticky veil of colour for your lips.
The colours I have are Beehive, a gorgeous pinky nude, and Peace a muted coral pink. Both colours are sheer, so if you have pigments lips they will show through and the formula reminds me of Mac’s Glaze lipsticks. If you don’t like a lot of colour on your lips but just want to even out your natural lip colour Beehive is a great shade to get.
The longevity isn’t great with these and they won’t last through a big meal but they are so comfortable to wear I don’t mind reapplying, or you could always pop a bit of liner underneath to increase their longevity.
With a lot of higher end brands bringing out their own gloss/lipstick hybrids it’s great to see an affordable version on the high street.
You can find 17 Mirror Shine lipsticks at Boots priced £4.59.
