No17 Lipstick in Beehive

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! :)


  1. I can't find this anywhere! It's always sold out, alas! I amseriously behind the times too ha, always get excited about a product weeks after everyone has x

    1. I know what you mean! I am going to try and pick up another today to be honest because I really love it and it does seem to sell out quickly! xxo

  2. I'm so glad you found this! I too adore it and only discovered it a few weeks back! I purchased one, tried it, loved it and went and got another as a back up.

    1. Thats a good idea! Might got pick up a couple today and give one away in my next blog giveaway :) xxo

  3. Hahaha love that you've put this through the test with your boyfriend! Would be a great way to see how lipsticks transfer though ;)
    Mine always complains when I've got lipstick on (which isn't very often I'll admit) that he's gonna end up covered.. not that I wear bright lipsticks anyway!
    I really wanna try this colour, looks like my kinda shade :) xxx

    1. Haha, naturaly I have to do the boyfriend test and report back :P
      Yeah I'm the same. I don't wear it to much and I don't wear bright colours but he still complains.
      On the other hand when I'm wearing strawberry chapstick he just can't get enough because it tastes so nice! lol.
