So, I was supposed to be on a sort of spending ban. Well, oops. I went into Topshop yesterday when I was waiting to meet some friends (I have a 'problem' where I am excessively early to any kind of meet up, where as my friends are mostly late. This sometimes leads to shoppping).
Here it is on. There aren't many good photos because I'm having an ugly day!
I am a big fan of all Topshop makeup packaging. I know some thinks it gets too dirty or is too plain, but I think it's perfectly simple and girly and it doesn't get any more dirty than my Nars or Mac packaging. I also like the fact that it is a pencil style lipstick, which means it is easy to apply for people with quite thin lips like myself.
Now, hmm. I liked the shade on my hand in the shop. I still like the shade on my hand. I'm not quite sure I like it on my lips though. Hmm. It's a peachy coraly colour, which I love, but I'm not sure it suits my pale skin. That isn't what irks me most though, it's the formula. It's very matte and so drying and will show up any imperfections/loose skin on the lips. Make sure you exfoliate and moisturise the lips first if you have dry lips too!
Overall I will definitely wear it over the summer, just need to make sure my lips are in tip top treatmemt before I do!
I am in love with this colour. It's a deep red raspberry colour, which looks gorgeous on (I will definitely be wearing it in other blog posts! Sorry for the lack of photo here). It just makes me feel confident and sexy (ish) which a good lipstick should do! The formula is nice and silkly and it lasts for a good 4/5 hours on me.
Have you tried any Topshop blushes? Would be interested to hear what you think, maybe I will even expand my collection ;)
Anyway, this is a long ass post. Byesy bye for now. I'm off for a run, then must work I guess...
Hope you're all enjoying the weekend.
Good luck to those who are running the marathon! I'll be watching I'm sure
