I love to have some slightly sheerer and more glossier lipsticks in my collection, for the days when I just want a wash of colour, or for Sixth Form, because we are allowed to wear subtle makeup, and these lipsticks by 17 are perfect.
I have these in 2 shades 'Belle' & 'Beehive' . Belle on the right is a slightly deeper red colour, and I love this because my lips are naturally quite a scarlet colour so this really enhances my lip colour and adds more of a glossy effect to my lips. Beehive is also wonderful because it is great if, like me, you are not brave enough to wear a full on nude lipstick and just want something that is heading more to the nude side of the spectrum but is still very wearable.
The only slight issue I have with these lipsticks is that they melt so easily! Because they are more like a glossy lip balm you have to be very careful not to leave these anywhere near the sun because they will melt! You may be able to see that Belle in particular, is looking a little worse for wear.
Overall though for the £4.79 they retail for, they are very good value! They have now updated their packaging and they now come in a very sleek black tube, with a mirror that you can pull out that would be handy for on the go. It also looks like they have a few new shades which is great so I will definitely be picking up a few of the new ones.
Thanks for reading,
