I only discovered 17's Mirror Shine Lispticks really quite recently (a couple of months ago) so I've missed a lot of the hype that these little beauties caused. Nevertheless, they definitely deserve a review as I do reach for both of these shades quite often and L.A made an appearance in a FOTD I did a while back. 

I'm a BIG lover of sheer lipsticks, I think they make bright colours really wearable during the day-time and they tend to fade really nicely and easily. They offer a super easy bright lip which needs minimum maintenance apart from reapplications (which I find really easy to do given the fantastic packaging of these lipsticks- that mirror on the lid is so helpful). The formula of these lipsticks is really lovely. They glide over the lips really smoothly and leave a super glossy slick of colour behind. All you need is one layer as I tend to find that they apply really evening but you can also layer them up a little bit to make the colour look more intense. They don't last terribly long, maybe an hour or so, but they feel really hydrating on the lips which is a nice change from some other lipsticks. 

I absolutely love the two colours I picked up. Shouty is a really punchy light, bright pink that I find brightens up my face. I like to pair this with a pink blush to build up a 'just pinched' sort of look, worn like this I think it's super pretty. However, I am wearing it with a peachy blusher in my lip swatch below so you can see how it looks worn like that. L.A looks really orange in the bullet but it swatches a really sheer orange with a red tint to it. I love this shade, it's a lovely colour to wear especially in such a glossy formula. I think it's a really versatile colour and it's perfect for people who don't like high maintenance red or orange lipsticks or are dipping their toes into brighter colours for the first time. As I said, I wear both of these quite a lot but I probably have worn Shouty more as it's a pretty unique colour in my lipstick collection!

You can see more closely what the colours look like below!

sorry about my fluffy fluffy hair!

All in all, I think that these are fantastic lipsticks. They cost £4.79 (available from Boots) which I definitely would say they are worth. I'm thinking of picking up the shade 'Beehive' next, which is the line's most raved about shade, but if you have any shades you'd like to recommend I'd love to check those out too!

What do you think about these lipsticks? Do you like the colours I picked up?
