I finally managed to get my hands on Beehive Mirror Shine Lipstick by No17. I am so far behind on this trend, but only found out about it when one of my readers commented on my blog! I had been hunting for it in my local Boots ever since but they seem to always be sold out of it.
I have to say that I am not over bowled over by the packaging. I find it a bit tacky but on the other hand it does stand out from other brands which I really like. I definitely won't have a problem trying to find this in my makeup bag.
The product is nothing like I imagined. I knew that it was a 'mirror shine' lipstick and therefore would probably be quite glossy, but I figured that it would still feel like a lipstick on my lips - which it actually doesn't. When you apply it from the stick it almost feels wet and slippery like it is melting onto your lips. It creates the most beautiful gloss shine without the jelliness or stickiness of a lipgloss.
It feels so moisturising but it doesn't tend to last very long on my lips before I have to start re-applying. In addition, I wouldn't recommend kissing your boyfriend with this on because it will get a little messy. Haha.
The colour is absolute perfection. It's another my-lips-but-better shade and has now become my everyday lipstick. I just wish I hadn't gone so long without it so far. I'm tempted to try another one of these lipsticks but I'm not overly sure what colour I would pick as I haven't done much research on what is out there from this line.
If you know of any great shades that you think I should try, be sure to let me know in the comments below! :)
