17 Lasting Fix Lipstick in Pink Hawaii

I was recently given a new lipstick from a family member who didn't want it any more as she never wore it and knew I am a self confessed lipstick addicted, I happily took it off her hands. It's Pink Hawaii by 17 - a lovely bright baby pink shade - the name I think is rather apt as when I see or have this lipstick on it reminds me of Hawaii and/or a party or even a punch bowl! So this name suits it well - it's definitely a shade for the Summer and I can tell I will be wearing it a lot.

The lipstick comes in a simple black case with a gold metal band around the middle. The brand is printed on the top and there is a sticker on the bottom in a similar shade to the lipstick itself, with the lipstick name and shade name printed on it. It's simple but the metallic pink adds a touch of silly girliness to the case, which I can't decide I like or if it makes it look cheap and tacky.

Inside, the pink bullet is encased in a metallic pink case which i'm not a fan of, I don't mind it on the outside of the packaging, but this much metallic casing makes it look cheap and tacky and kind of reminds me of those cheap make-up bits you give to children, so a big thumbs down on packaging from me! 

The lipstick itself is a baby pink, but yet quite bright. Definitely and interesting colour and as I said - perfect for the Summer, I know i'll be getting a lot of wear out of it this year. It does have a slight shimmer to it and it can feel a little drying if your lips aren't moisturised, plus it does show up any cracks you have so make sure you use a lip balm or lip scrub first to make sure your lips are lovely and soft!

Other than that, I like this lipstick and i'm very happy I have it in my collection.
