My favourite lip product of 2011 has to be the 17 Mirror Shine On lipsticks. These creamy tubes of loveliness blur the line between lipstick and lipbalm so they'e easy to wear and they're the kind of product you can apply without using a mirror. They're highly glossy (without being sticky) and moisturising but give a good amount of sheer colour to the lips. The 17 Mirror Shine On lippies aren't particularly long lasting on the lips but the tube itself has lasted a long time considering my many re-applications. The only downside to this lipstick is the packaging. The peacock blue tubes look a little cheap and tacky and would have looked better in similar packaging to the Sheer Moisture lipsticks, but as the product is so amazing it doesn't matter too much.
Nudist Peach is a natural peachy shade that is perfect for everyday wear. It has fast become my favourite lip colour so I'm never without this lipstick in my makeup bag. After discovering just how much I loved 17 Mirror Shine lippies, I swiftly purchased the shades Beehive (light pink) and Belle (rosy pink) and these now seem to be the only 3 shades I wear, resulting in the rest of my collection being sorely neglected. Not only are 17 Mirror Shine On lipsticks amazing value for money, they have the quality of a much more expensive product. If you haven't already tried these lipsticks I urge you to go and try them - you won't regret it! 17 Mirror Shine On Lipsticks are priced at £4.59 and are available to buy from Boots.
