Picture

TOPSHOP CLAIMS
Velvet finish lipstick to smooth, moisturise and nourish lips. Apply for fabulous colour and moisturised, matte finish, wear alone or with gloss for a shiny finish.

PRICE & AVAILABILITY
€10/$16/£8 | Topshop

THE BASICS
Topshop has a large variety of lip products; lipsticks, lip crayons, lip liners, lip glosses etc with so many amazing colours. I bought the lipsticks in Ohh La La and All About Me each containing 3.5g of product.

MY OPINION
If you follow me on twitter, you’d see one lipstick and one blush I don’t stop recommending and that are from Topshop. You’d be surprised to hear that they don’t even have the best formulas out there, especially the lipstick. Then why do you hear my undying love for it?

The colours or lipsticks Topshop has, I have not seen elsewhere. They are not easily dupe-able. They are not your common pink, red and orange. They just are different. You might not agree, but that’s how I find them. And just look at their cute, adorable black and ivory packaging. Though whatever the material is, probably metal, is prone to smudges and scratches, it stains very easily.

Both these shades are perfect for spring/summer.

All About Me is a bright fuchsia pink, very pigmented. It has a semi-matte finish, feels creamy and just because it is pretty dark colour stays well for 6 hours. It gives medium to full coverage.

Ohh La La is a slightly neon-ish peachy coral, semi-matte and gives medium coverage. It applies quite chalky on the lips and has a tendency to emphasize lip imperfections. I use it over a lip balm or my favourite combination is with the Benefit Ultra Plush Coralista Lip Gloss. However, Ohh La La doesn’t have a good lasting power. It wears off evenly in 2 hours or so. Both lipsticks are not very moisturising.

So here it is, the formula in all its non-glory. But ladies, I still can’t help not loving them. And anytime I get I will still be coercing you over twitter.

MY RATING                                                   

If you are care more about the lipstick formula than the shade range and packaging, then you better skip it!

  7. I received my first Topshop lipstick a few months ago and was pleasantly surprised, I kind of assumed the make up was all packaging and no substance, but I'm a convert now - love these shades!
