17 Supreme Shine Lipstick Review.

What they say: “Get the colour you crave with Supreme Shine Lipstick, 13 rich and lightweight shades with intense colour pigments. Re-ignite your love of lip colour…Glamour is only a lip-slick away.”

Texture: I think I’m in love. These lipsticks are certainly lightweight but carry a lot of pigment without being too in your face. These were released in time for the Christmas Party Season but I would rather wear something that is a bit more punchy like a hard to wear matte red. For someone who is new to wearing lipstick or wants something for daywear, like me, this is perfect. The texture is very moisturising so the staying power is less than that of a matte lipstick. This feels more like a balm than a lipstick which I love.

Colour: Comes in 13 shades ranging from pinks to browns, nudes to reds. I bought mine in ‘Pink Posey’, looks quite purple in the tube but more pink on the lips. I could easily wear different lip liners with this to bring out the different undertones.

Packaging: Bright silver colour packaging, eye-catching and the lid clicks in place well. Great for me considering lipsticks live at the bottom of my handbag most of the time.

Price & Availability: These are £4.99 from Boots. At the moment they are running 3 for 2 on all 17 products so I got a couple of ‘Mirror Shine On’ lipsticks (in Hollywood & Peach) too!

I give this 5/5 – feels really nice and comfortable on, good range of colours and easy to wear. The price is amazing too.


  1. I was looking at these yesterday and I was really impressed with the colours available :)

  2. I have just bought another one at lunch! This time I got 'Barely Blush'. I wanted a nice pinky-nude to wear with full on or smokey eye looks and this is perfect! I can't believe they're only £4.99 each. Bargain.

  3. They look like they have a really matt texture on the photograph. I prefer using lipsticks over gloss, but prefer the shininess of a lip gloss, so I guess a shiny lipstick kills two birds with one stone! And my lips always get dry around this time of year, so anything moisturising is a bonus!

  4. They do look matt in the pics but they are quite shiny. They aren't as shiny as a gloss but I like that as I think they give a more modern finsh. I love the fact that they are comfortable to wear all day - I know what you mean about winter drying everything out! Rubbish weather!

  5. I forgot to say; the 17 Mirror Shine On range are much more shiny (and a whole 50p cheaper!), maybe they would be more up your street? Have you tried them?
