We all know it's all too easy to get swept away on the hype train when a new product comes into town, and I'm just as guilty as most of you. But recently I've been trying very hard to buy products for me, that I know I need rather than want. I'm not talking about "need" either!!
But everytime I've wandered into Boots since I 17 Mirror Shine lipsticks hit the market, I spent at least 5 minutes "buzzing" around the shade Beehive (boom boom).
It's a staple nude pink colour that doesn't scream special at all, but hey, I'm a beauty fiend...it's an affliciton.
What makes this lipstick special isn't the unique shade or the crazy colour payoff, it's the smooth, glossy finish that it leaves. It's a potent mix of balm/gloss and lipstick that has me hooked.
Pictured here on completely naked lips it's a three in one effect.
Beware though, you pay a price for soft glossy finish. You get a soft glossy lipstick, which will respond heat and knocks in a big melted mess.
But for under a fiver, who can complain?!
