Seventeen Lip Lustre | The Insta-Review

I've seen a good few bad, and average reviews for the Seventeen Lip Lustres. I have to totally disagree with all of those reviews, because I LOVE them.
Maybe its because I'm really not a lipgloss type of person, I usually hate the way lipglosses make my lips feel; sticky, often dry, and generally uncomfortable. Not these ones though! I headed to Boots on the hunt for a bargain, and was no way about to spend a lot of money on something I've always disliked. I spotted the Lip Lustres and immediately was drawn to their plain and simple packaging, sleek, practical with a matte black lid. And they were only 5.09 euro. Bargain!
I wasn't disappointed. I picked up "3 Little Words" first, and not a speck of shimmer or glitter in site, which is a huge thumbs up for me. It gives a nice pink sheen to the lips but isn't overly pigmented, exactly the same as Hotting Up, the coral pink shade.
Now if you're looking for a highly pigmented, super glossy lipgloss, these probably aren't for you. However, if you're like me and just want something to give a slight colour and a pretty sheen, then these are perfect. They still have a slight tacky feeling to them, although it doesn't bother me, just something to note!
