17| Mirror Shine On Lipstick in Hollywood

I have been doing a lot of skin care posts lately and thought I should maybe do something else so I'm going to talk about my next favourite thing.....lipstick!

I wear lipstick everyday, even on days were I leave my face bare, I just pop some shades on and some lipstick and I feel I can face the world! I went out last week with no lipstick on and my face just felt bare! I ended up going to boots and picking one up because I didn't like it!

So that lipstick is the one that I am going to talk about today.

I hadn't tired any 17 Lipsticks before so this was a bit of a gamble but I had a 17 voucher from boots that I just thought why the hell not. I was actually really surprised by this product. I will be honest and say I wasn't really expecting much as it is one of the cheaper drugstore brands.

I am not all that fussed with the packaging. I personally feel that it does look a bit cheap but this isn't the end of the world. I do like the fact that is small and compact means I can slip in my bag. Plus it will be ideal if I am going for a night out and need something a bit smaller because of lack of space.

These are a sheer colour and I think on the lips look more like a lip gloss rather than a lipstick. I am not huge fan of lip gloss because I don't like the sticky feeling and the fact that if there is the slight bit of wind my hair gets stuck to my lips! ew. This doesn't have that sticky texture though.

This is also really pigmented! I thought it would be just a nice little flush to my lips but this is actually a really bright red. For me this is something that is a lovely day time colour, its not to much work. When I wear this I am not worried that I have smudged it all over my face and look like a clown!

I am really surprised by this product and am going to see if there are any other colours that take my fancy!

You can buy this 17 lipstick at Boots in store on online here for £4.59


  1. Great post :) My sister gave me hers recently as it didn't suit her, I was really surprised how shiny/sheer they are!


  2. I agree the packaging is quite plain, but the colour on the other hand is lovely! :) Xo
