Boots 17 Mirror Shine Lipsticks

After hearing amazing reviews about the Boots 17 mirror shine lipsticks I was eager to give them ago. They are described as ‘a moisturising lipstick with a mirror-shine gloss’ and for that reason I wasn’t expecting anything very amazing but at £4.49 I knew I had to give them ago.

L-R: Hollywood, Flirtini and Peach

 was kindly sent three shades out of the 10, I was sent flirtini, peach and Hollywood all of which I am very impressed by.  They aren’t the most pigmented lipsticks I own instead they offer a light, sheer colour which is buildable and the best part is they are moisturising. All of the shades are very glossy and comparable to all good tinted lip balms as they also don’t last very long. 

My favourite colour is ‘Peach’ in the tube it looks like a bright orange but it strangely came out as a bright berry pink with a slight orange tint on my lips. ‘Flirtini’ is a wearable pretty pink and Hollywood a sheer red.

My only problem with these lipsticks is how light the texture is which causes them to melt quite easily and think this will be a problem throughout the summer.

I will be picking up some more of these lipsticks over the next few weeks and definitely be using them this summer (well as long as they last the heat.) These lipsticks are available from most Boots and retail for £4.49.
