|17 Lipstick in Hot Chilli £4.29|
This lipstick is a classic case of 'see it, buy it' even though I have a million other similar shades... Oh well beauty addict for a reason!
17 isn't really a brand I get drawn to a lot and I've not tried a lot from them either. The formula of this lipstick is actually lovely, although I don't like it's shape (it doesn't have the point that most lipstick bullets have which make it easier to apply precisely) the colour is gorgeous. In person it's a really bright orange with a slightly red undertone which makes it really wearable. I tend to pair a bright lip with a neutral eye to keep the focus on the lips and keep the look daytime appropriate.
As for staying power, given the name of this line is 'Lasting Fix' I don't think it lasts that long, it smudges and wears away quite easily, but I think the colour pay off is worth the extra application or two. I tend to seal it with a layer of Lipcote to keep it in place and that works treat! For under £5 it's well worth a try if you're on a budget.
