Lipstick Mondays 17 Beehive

Another pretty nude shade to show you today. 17 Mirror Shine On Lipstick in Beehive. Firstly I love this lipstick. It’s so moisturising it’s more like a balm texture. I also love the bright blue packaging it really stands out in my bag.

For some reason it’s gone funny in the tube, has any one else found this with this make? The lipstick is still very usable and doesn’t effect it. I think it’s probably as it’s such a moisturising formula.

It’s a sheer nude glossy shade on lip. Due to the how light this is on the lip the lasting power isn’t great. The colour it comes out on the lip and how nice it feels means I don’t mind reapplying it lots.

Although it’s glossy on the lips it’s not at all sticky. I will definitely repurchase this soon as I’m running low and can’t wait to try more shades from this range. I think this is an impressive nude shade, I find it hard to find nice high street nude shades but this colour definitely rivals MAC for colour.

They are a reasonable £4.59. Looking online their are only 3 shades available now but I know there are lots more in store. Does anyone know if they are possibly discontinuing this range? If so I need to stock up. Do you have any from this range?

Love M

    This is one of my favourite lipsticks, I love how smooth it is! I also have this range in Belle which is a lovely rosey pink :)

    If you have a Boots card they have vouchers for 17 atm. If you buy anything from the range you get a free mineral blush and their glitter eyeshadows are half price. So I bought a glitter eyeshadow for £1.94 and got a free blush worth £5 or something! I will keep an eye out for these lipsticks next time I go in, a lipstick that feels like a balm sounds pretty good for a lipstick-phobe like me!Charlotte

      Oh I need to do this. Into blushes at the moment. I think this shade would be great if you are a lipstick-phobe. I used to be too x
