A shiny blue tube of delight

So recently I got suckered in by all the hype that is surrounding the No 17 mirror shine lipsticks and popped one of the beautifully shiny blue tubes of promises into my baskets whilst perusing the isles of boots!

I am not a big lipstick fan - actually, let me re-phrase that! I am a big lipstick fan, I love all the amazing colours out there but unfortunately, my lips do not share my passion! They are dry and lipstick just looks pretty gross on them to be quite honest!

But, after reading many a posts about these amazing lipsticks that promise to be shiny and glossy and more of a sheen a colour I decided to give it a whirl and see how me and my lips got on.

And well I just love it! 


I only picked up one (the extremely pretty Beehive) at £4.49 even though Boot's were doing 3 for 2 - although they are always doing this so I haven't really lost out there! I thought, rather sensibly, that I would give this one a go before teasing myself with all the other beautiful colours!

*Apologies for the poor pictures - even though the sun is out, I just can't seem to get the lighting right*

The colour in the tube is very bold - but once applied, it adds just a lovely sheen of colour to the lips! They are very much like a lipgloss but without the stickyness! I found that once applied, they left the lips feeling as if they had a lip balm on them - very smooth and non-drying!

As for wear, I haven't found it to be very long lasting, but it's not a deal breaker for me!

I do love this very much - I have used it every day and have had lots of comments on the lovely colour! I would definitely recommend you head on over to boots and have a nosey at the colours they have! I think I will be treating myself to peach next time I'm in town!

Hope you're all enjoying this gorgeous weather and have a fab Easter bank holiday R
