17 Mirror Shine Lipstick - Beehive

17 Mirror Shine Lipstick Beehive

17 Mirror Shine Lipstick Beehive

Nude lipsticks are a hard thing to get right. Most lipsticks I have tried look lovely in the tube but give a concealer look once applied to the lip, which completely defeats the purpose of using a lipstick. Beehive has been hyped by many of my favourite beauty bloggers so I have been curious about it for a while, I wasn't expecting much from this but I think this is certainly going to become a staple in my makeup bag.

Beehive is a light pinky nude that gives a slight glossy colour to your lips which is very subtle. It has a very sheer formula and can easily be applied without a mirror and is a perfect product for the 'barely there' look. It provides slightly more colour than a tinted lip balm and is also build able but as it's sheer it won't build to an intense colour. Beehive is very nourishing on the lips and feels a lot like wearing a lip balm but the downside to this is the staying power. The staying power isn't brilliant but it isn't terrible either, I think it's a very middle of the road product as it doesn't slip straight off but doesn't stick around if you're eating or drinking. As I've said before, applying this product is easy as one swipe gives you a nice subtle wash of colour.

  1. This looks like the perfect nude!
    I like that it has the touch of pink colour as I feel like completely nude lippy's make me look like a corpse!
