Any beauty blogger could sympathise with the quest for "the perfect nude".
It is THE hardest thing to find a daytime appropriate nude lipstick that doesn't wash out and simultaneously compliments your skintone.
Now I must admit I found mine in MACs Plink!
Which is a wonderful lip-gloss like formula which pigments and hydrates the lips- but finding a highstreet alternative seemed to be almost impossible, even the Revlon lip tint in Honey seemed too pink and almost cartoon like for my skin colour and many lipsticks were far too drying. This was until I tried 17s Beehive which is not a stranger within the Blogging community, in fact its always received very good reviews.
The 17 mirror shine lipstick used to be in a green reflective packaging which if I'm honest offended my "black and classic" nature. Since the mirror shine lipsticks have been repackaged they are significantly more pleasing to my eye. Not only that but they also contain a super handy mirror which I think is a cute and practical little touch.
The new packaging is sleek and study enough to withstand being chucked about in my handbag.
As you can see by the swatch the colour pay off is very slight but for me that is perfect for daytime use- I really dont have a lot of time in the day to be checking and re-applying my lippie so for me this is a great choice.
Have you ever tried the 17 mirror shine range, did you like them?
