My favourite lipstick for summer

     Since it has started getting hotter, I've been preferring sheer lipsticks because of how light they feel on my lips. The Boots number 17 mirror shine lipsticks seem to be exactly what I was looking for!

  They're so sheer & moisturising that they give a glossy finish, so you don't need to layer on the lipgloss afterwards. My favourite shade is 'Beehive', it's a dark nude pink, and it's definitely a 'your lips but better' colour. It looks so natural, making it perfect for when you don't want to look too dolled up, but you still want the colour. The only problem I have found with this lipstick is that because it has such a glossy finish, it doesn't tend to last very long. But, on the plus side because the colour isn't too dramatic, touch-ups are effortless and there's no need for a mirror.
    This lipstick has become a must-have handbag item in the last few weeks, and I'm in love! I definitely will be investing in a few more shades of these mirror shine lipsticks, so if you've tried any of them, what are your favourites?

     Hi everyone! I thought I'd add a photo of me so that I don't seem so anonymous. Today I had my last exam, so summer has officially begun for me! I'm really excited that I finally have time to try out new products for summer & play around a little with the ones I already have.  I've got loads of ideas for new blog posts so watch this space.
