mirror shine






I know I am extremely late to the party with these mirror shine on lipsticks from 17 but recently, whilst perusing the aisles of Boots, I was drawn to their slick, shiny packaging and the promise of an ultra-glam and glossy finish. For £4.59 a pop, I was willing to give them a whirl and rifled through the collection of 10 lipsticks, offering an array of shades from nudes and browns to plums and pinks. 
I opted from... 

Peace:- a muted pinky-coral and Hollywood:- a rosy red

The nature of these lipsticks means the finish is extremely sheer, literally giving the lips a glaze of colour. They are the perfect product for those who love the glossy allure of a lipgloss, but aren't enamoured with all the gloop and stickiness that comes with it. In the tubes, these colours look bright and bold, but don't be scared/fooled by this, as once applied, you are left with a barely-there coat of colour. 
The consistency of these lipsticks is very luscious and non-drying, and they do leave the lips slicked with a high shine, glossy finish that is quite long-lasting. I love both these colours, especially Hollywood, a real red. I was however a little disappointed with Peace, having high hopes for a muted orange, I was left more with a light pink. 



I would definitely indulge in a few more of these lipsticks and I believe the much-acclaimed Beehive shall be my next purchase!

Have you tried the mirror shine on range?

I love the Mirror Shine lipsticks! I have Peace (which seems to have gone missing in a handbag somewhere...), Purple Haze, Flirtini (bit too glittery) and Belle (which is exactly the same as my lip colour...)

I definitely recommend Purple Haze too!

I really like these actually- I got one free in a twitter 17 comp, and after looking & thinking it's not my colour (a very dark red) I tried it on & honestly love it.

Those colours are absolutely gorgeous.
Usually i`m a no lipstick or as bright a shade of red as possible kind of gal.
These look like a fantastic alternative and I love how they look glossy.

I was looking for some new Lipsticks to try.. I love the packaging. Ha. So Shiny.. The colours look nice as well. I especially like the 'Peace' colour & what a bargain. Lovely x

DaintyMakeup said...

I really want to try Beehive as well, never tried anything from 17 but the lipsticks and eyeshadows seem really nice!

Amelia said...

these look lovely

one reason why i havent really come across these is because im sick and tired of coming across with drugstore lippys that are shimmery or glittery: CANNOT STAND THESE FINISHES.

with a lack of finishes to choose from at the drugstore i run off to MAC for a stress free choice but i totally will check these out
