No17 Mirror Shine

I saw these first on pearls and poodles blog and I knew I had to have them. 
They are No17s sheer lipstick range “mirror shine”
It’s like a cross between a lipstick and a gloss and it feels balmy when on your lips, gorgeous! I picked up two shades… only one was in a fit state to photograph unfortunately but I will be repurchasing the second and going back for more so you can expect further posts on these because I love them! 
They remind me of something no7 did years and years ago, My Grandma gave me an old lipstick that looks like a very dark plummy red but on my lips it was a really sheer “just bitten” shade and I loved it. At the time I was probably only 9 or 10 but I fell in love with that lipstick and I’ve never found anything that was so similar until now. There were two many to choose from but I will definitely expand my collection while the 3 for 2 offer is still on at Boots. I picked up Hollywood (pictured below) and Nudist Peach which is an incredibly flattering and easy way to wear a nude lip if you’re scared of going the full hog – I will swatch as soon as I can because that’s my favourite colour for sure. Since I bought these I’ve looked up so many reviews and the stand out recommended shade is Beehive, it’s commonly compared to Hue by MAC which intrigues me.
How many of you were already on this glossy bandwagon and why did nobody tell me about it?????

    I picked up beehive and flirtini recently and have fallen in love with them, such a lovely sheer colour and I like that it feels balmy on. I ended up going back and getting peace also

    the 17 lasting fix lipsticks are amazing too, pigmented and the packaging reminds me of the mac viva glam lipsticks :_ x
