Twilight Teaser ... *Review*

Thursday, 3 November 2011

Here we have 17's Shine On lipstick in Twilight Teaser.

I was casually browsing manically hunting for a purple shade of lipstick when i spied this offering from 17 hidden right at the very bottom (!) of the stand in Boots.

I was first attracted to the sleekness of the packaging and the ultra slim bullet. The casing is very durable and has a click lid system with a twist-up silver body. It reminds me of MAC's Pro Longwear Lipcreme.

At the time that i bought this colour i was feeling daring and wanted to pick a nice 'winter' lipstick shade. I was umming and ahhing over the purple lipstick from the Kate Moss/Rimmel collection (to be honest i still am lusting over it) but opted for 17 Shine On lipstick - so glad i did!

As you can see by the pictures the colour is divine. Swatched it shows a nice purple/lilac, on my lips however the colour is more a purple/pink shade (i naturally have a very pigmented lip colour).

I have now had this lipstick for a month and wear it almost everyday! It doesn't feel daring in the slightest as its more a hint of purple on me, i think i shall continue the hunt for a brighter purple shade to wear on nights out during the winter months :) Has anyone tried MAC's Faithfully Yours?

Twilight Teaser is ultra moisturising and fades nicely rather than stains the lips. Lasting power is around 3 hours before re-application is required.

RRP: £4.19 and is available in Boots stores nationwide.

I really like this lipstick and am eager to try more of the Shine On range. Have you tried any of these?




  1. That color looks really pretty on you :) xxx

  2. I've never tried Shine On lipsticks from 17 but their Lasting Fix range are some of the best lippies I've ever used :) The colour's great on you! xxx

  3. It's such a pretty colour, really suits you! Agree with you on the packaging, looks really sleek and high quality - I'm a sucker for some good packaging! xx

  4. This colour looks great on you :)))
    I have one in the shade Flirty and I love it.
    Interested to hear you thought the packaging was durable though, as mine is really flimsy and it rattles!! ...perhaps I just picked up a dodgy one?! haha xx

  5. This looks gorgeous on you. I haven't tried anything from this range yet xx
