My Recent TopShop Fix-Part 2-Lipsticks

Hi ladies,

This is the second instalment of my TopShop fix.

Lipsticks.


I have to confess that I've never tried them before and I was pleasantly surprised.

This are the boxes and the names:


I went for one of each in the brown, pink and orange family.


Desert
It's on the pale nude side. A bit darker than Darling than GOSH.
It is quite creamy but I find that it applies a bit patchy and I the get horrible residues on the cracks of my lips. 
I guess you need a good moisturiser underneath.
It's not completely mat but it's not satin either.
A bit in between but more mat than anything.
This one is my least favourite from the 3.

Brighton Rock
I'm in love with this one.
It's a bright pink (Think Jessie J).
It's super creamy and it applies beautifully.
It also fades nicely.
The finish is super flattering with a bit of a satin feel.

Infrared
This one is a bright orange not for the not so confident lipstick wearers.
Again super creamy and it applies very nice.
It's quite satin in finish.

Swatches
I tried the heart thing just for a change :)


What do you think?

I like them.
they are quite decent in price £8 each and they seem to have tried, tested and liked shades!

    Oh I love the topshop lipsticks! I am obsessed with 'ohh la la' and considering buying a backup. Ive also been eyeing up brighton rock for ages but fear its too similar to Mac chatterbox (which I have) What you think? could I get away with it? x

    I had Desert and really didn&#39;t like the colour! My new favourite is Show Off but Brighton Rock looks absolutely gorgeous! xxx

    @Rachy: I wanted that one too! But it was sold out. It must be very popular. It might bit a tad similar actually but it&#39;s a bit more blue toned pink. X<br /><br />@Delyteful Speaks: It was a first time for me too. So far so good. X<br /><br />@Vivianna: Of course! It should be your trademark colour. Very you anyway. X<br /><br />@m i s s a r c h:I&#39;ll take the photos tomorrow in daylight. X<br /><br />@Melanie: Thanks! I might pick up some more. We&#39;ll see...they are quite reasonably priced compared to Mac say. X<br /><br />@daisy: Yes, Desert is actually a bit difficult especially if your lips are quite pigmentes. I&#39;ll keep on working with it. X

    @Ella: Probably the best advice I can give you early is not to spam your blog onto other people or on your comments. A LOT of people (including me) don&#39;t like it. Just leave a good and interesting comment and it will make people click on your name to go to your blog.
