Review // Seventeen Supreme Shine Lipstick in Hot Flash

If you are a Boots Advantage Card Holder member, sometimes you get really good deals in the form of vouchers that you print off from the little machines instore. Very rarely does anything catch my eye but recently something did. A voucher for a half price lipstick. Half price lipstick? I'm sold. The lipstick that was on offer was the Seventeen Supreme Shine Lipstick. Available in 12 different shades, I picked up the colour called Hot Flash. Hot Flash is a pretty dark coral with a hint of a deep orange. It reminds me a lot of the Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain in Rendevous (review here) but luckily without the peppermint scent.

I can't quite work out if I'm a fan of the packaging or not. I like the design and the idea of it, but try and take a photo of it and you're stuffed! As long as the packaging keeps the lipstick in one piece then it's a job well done in my opinion.

Onto the lipstick. As much as I adore the pretty deep coral shade, I really struggle to make it show up on my lips. I find it to be a little sheer so it needs a good few coatings to make it show up on the skin which, as irritating as it is, makes it quite versatile as you can build the colour up. I found Hot Flash to last around 3-4 hours on the lips before wearing off completely. I didn't find it too drying but it did show up dry areas on the lips slightly so exfoliating beforehand is a must. It has a beautiful shine to it which makes it very flattering to wear.

Overall, a really easy to wear lipstick range that is available in 12 shades. They are a little bit sheer so need building up to get a more of an opaque colour and have a beautifully flattering shine.
