Following on from my popular ‘mac lipstick collection’ video (here), I decided to give you guys a Topshop lipstick collection too. Despite being one of my favourite lipstick brands, I don’t own that many but they are definitely signature shades that get a lot of use. I am considering buying a couple more because they are so affordable but we will see which shades I decide upon..
So the first is Ooh La La which I have had the longest, hence its tatty appearance. This is a really vibrant coral shade which hasn’t shown up in the best light but its essentially just a gorgeous pinky orange that has a warm tone. Then is Fast Lane which is a matte mid toned pinky purple which looks lighter in a swatch. This is my ‘go to’ if I want deeper pink lips. Then its Suspected which is a browny red and again, a warm shade, its very similar to Wicked although wicked is slightly more vibrant and a little more red – in honesty they are almost the same shade! Finally is Depth which is a very close dupe for MAC’s Cyber and its a gorgeous vampy purple that works so well with a little bit of a tan.
The consistency, texture and pigmentation of the lipsticks is gorgeous. I love how easily they glide on and they last a really long time. I was so sceptical at first because they only cost £8 but they are really worth investing in. I think my only issue with Topshop lipsticks is their packaging. I adore the stripes and the font but if they are in a make-up bag or handbag being knocked about, they just go so tatty. Other than that I couldn’t fault them.
