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?
