A month of lipsticks, January 22nd 2013.

Hello lovelies, mid week Wednesday hows your week going so far? Ever since I have been doing more shifts at work the days just seem to be going past way to quickly and feels like I hardly have free time. Looking forward to going back to normal soon hopefully. Back to another lipstick for you all.

17 Mirror Shine - Cheeky Secret

Out of all my lipsticks these are the most disappointing. I was lucky enough to receive a goody bag from 17 from a competition on twitter and these were in there. Everything else I loved but these are basically like lip balms, not a lot of pigmentation at all! So would be great if you was looking for something sheer but if you like a good full coverage pigmented lipstick I wouldn't get one of these especially not in this shade anyway. What I do love about these though is the packaging! A mirror with your lipstick how handy. Great for on the go if you've forgot your pocket mirror.

As you can see it just looks like a clear lip balm with a slight hint of colour but not a lot, not the sort of thing I want I like colour to my lips.

If you press hardly the colour comes out here swatched on my hand but not that colour at all on my lips maybe just try and apply and apply till you get the colour but would take you a while. Just your personal preference on what colour and finishes you like on your lips. The smooth texture on your lips is nice and makes it feel hydrating.

  1. I actually love sheer lipsticks - some of my favourites are sheer but give a subtle wash of colour. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about the bold and bright lip (MAC Violetta is my favourite lipstick of all time) but sometimes it's nice to just tone it down a bit. I think it looks lovely! :)
