17 Mirror Shine On Lipstick review

Price: £4.49

I have this in the shade Cookie. I nearly purchased one of the other colours that were slightly redder but since I have so many lip products in that shade, I thought I would go with this. It’s still my usual berry colour but with more of a brown tone to it and I love it.

Here it is without flash and below it, with flash.

This lipstick is very moisturising. If you love to wear lipstick during the winter but often suffer from dry lips, then this would be perfect for you. Since it’s so sheer, I would describe it as a tinted lip balm but in stick form, which is what’s so great about it. You still get the great colour but since it’s not so intense as your normal lipstick, you can apply it without a mirror, whilst still having the lovely packaging in the form of a lipstick.

Once applied, your lips are left with a lovely sheen and a hint of the colour you have chosen. You can layer it to darken it or quickly swipe it over your lips for less noticeable colour. If, like me, you like to wear lipliner all over your lips (which can often result in them looking a little dry), then this is great to apply over the top to moisturise your lips a little.

Below (without flash) I am wearing it alone, which gives me a ‘my lips but better’ look.

With flash.

I will definitely be purchashing this in other shades but I am extremely happy with the shade I have and would definitely recommend trying this one first if you haven’t purchased this product already.

  1. Love these lipsticks, I've only tried Beehive but I'm in love with it! xo

  2. I have fliritini and really hate it... it makes my lips look kinda weird. x

  3. I bought this in Beehive and whilst I liked it I wouldn't buy any of these lippies again. I only used it once before it completely disintegrated in the tube. It was kept in a cool place but melted, so annoying!

  4. so pretty and natural not as dark as would appear.

    Lovely blog : D

    check out my giveaway for some pre crimbo treats!

  5. I haven't had any problems with mine at all, perhaps it depends on the colour? I shall have to buy some of the others and see!

  6. Oh I thought this would look quite dark on you, but it actually looks pretty natural :) I recently won this lipstick in Belle in a giveaway and I can't wait to try it :)


  7. I wasn't sure which page to comment back on, so I just chose this one, hehe. It's great that you love your purchase! Money well spent :)

  8. I like it. It's a light subtle red (: Sometimes dark make-up on fair skin doesn't look the best (:
