I never used to really wear lipstick that much. I always found it too much effort to keep it looking nice and could never find a shade to suit my skintone. After reading Zoe's posts about how much she loves the topshop lipsticks I decided to just take the plunge and buy one. The only downside is that they don't have that many shades to choose from. I've been loving corals for the past few months and the closest thing they had to coral was 'Ohh La La' so I decided to just go for it and buy it online (my local store doesn't stock makeup so I had no idea what I was getting myself into). They also had an offer running at the time to get a free lipstick in 'All About Me' which is a very bright hot pink with blue tones.
The Topshop lipsticks are priced at £8 which I don't think is too bad personally (I usually buy either Revlon or MAC lipsticks). When I received Ohh La La, I was shocked at how bright it was (literally bright orange) but I decided to give it a go anyway. Lets just say, I haven't used any other lipstick since I bought this a few months ago.
They both have a really creamy texture and apply really smooth - though I found that they do cling to dry patches (which is kinda expected) so I always apply it over a lipbalm. I found they last around 2-4 hours depending which I guess isn't too long but thats fine for me. They also have a really floraly scent which I thought was quite weird for a lipstick, but I actually quite like it and I love how you can't taste them on your lips either like some lipsticks.
Since I have quite pigmented lips, I love to apply Ohh La La really lightly just to give my lips a little colour and it creates such a nice natural coral colour (you can see in any of my outfit pictures). Personally, I don't like All About Me as the colour is way too bright for me (even when applied thinly) and I also found it to stain my lips even with one swipe.
Overall, I absolutely love Topshop lipsticks and highly recommend them. I can't wait to add more to my collection (though I'm kind of gutted they don't sell Ohh La La anymore haha). Have you tried Topshop lipsticks before? What did you think?
