When I was posting about the 17 BB Blemish Balm earlier this week I kept thinking that I should post about this lipstick as well. It's the Mirror Shine On lipstick in Belle.
Yes, the packaging is garish and feels cheap but that's because it is cheap. £4.59, to be precise. It sort of has that 'lipstick' smell too but I can't smell it when it's on my lips. I've tried a couple of other shades from the Mirror Shine On range; they're all quite sheer, lightweight and very glossy. They can be a tiny bit drying and they also have the tendency to get a bit messy if they get too warm but those are the only downsides to the product. I actually got through an entire tube of Beehive so I can safely say that I really like these lipsticks!
Belle looks like a deep pink shade in the bullet but because it's so sheer it just adds a hint of colour to the lips. If you have very pigmented lips you may find that Belle doesn't show up but mine are quite pale and this shade seems to just add a little something. I especially like wearing it when I'm having a lazy day and want something other than a peachy-nude. It works nicely with my slightly cooler toned shadows and blushes without being too berry or purple.
You can purchase the 17 Mirror Shine On lipstick in Boots stores or online. I think they're worth having a look at if you like sheer lipsticks.
Do you have a favourite 17 product?
