Beauty | Topshop Lipsticks

I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to try these.

Topshop lipsticks have been on my 'to try' list for so long, but I kept forgetting to go in for a look. The other day, armed with my student discount and the need for a treat, I picked myself up these two gorgeous colours: 'Charmed' and 'Macaroon' 

Now as you can see 'Charmed' is a lovely juicy orange colour and 'Macaroon' is an equally juicy, but slightly less 'out there' pink. I fell in love with so many of the colours but I managed to whittle it down to these two little beauts, perfect for my upcoming holiday and also great for adding a bit of colour to the dull and dismal weather we've been cursed with this last week or so. 


They go on easily and have a really luxuriously pigmented, moisturising finish. They don't leave my lips dry and don't give you the dreaded line after you've have anything to eat or drink, which is a total plus. They aren't massively expensive either at £8 each. 

In addition to the super cute names, the packaging was arguably the biggest surprise to me. I'd heard great things about the lipsticks themselves, but after seeing them in videos and in store having never picked one up, I just assumed that the packaging would be a cheap plastic. Yeah, it's not. The tubes are probably made of plastic, but they feel quite metallic, which makes me feel a wee bit more chic and fancy so I like that. 

They have so much on offer in Topshop now it's unreal. I could have bought at least three more colours, so I'm feeling pretty restrained! I'm also dying to try their nail polishes as well. I love my Barry M's but I'm ready for a new favourite I think! I've also bought loads of other new lip products recently as I've been feeling frivolous with colour- I think I might be getting an addiction! Just keep me away from Mac! 

Have you tried these? What's your favourite shade?

Happy Friday!
