So I thought I'd give a rundown of my collection.
So pretty and colourful :)
The colours match up to the labels above, just to make life easier :) .
All Topshop Lipsticks: very moisturising, last for about 2/3 hours (on me, someone who drinks a lot- sometimes just water!-and has a tendency to pick her lips. Might last longer on those that do not have this habit!) and are reasonably pigmented.
Ok, let's go colour by colour (and please excuse my shocked/ghost pose in the following photos!)
Oh La La
I don't wear this colour often enough, but I will do once the sun starts coming out. I can imagine wearing this with a little floral playsuit, cocktail in hand...(come on summer!)
Innocent is a lovely, inoffensive pinky shade that I think would suit most skin tones and go with most outfits. It is a colour that could easily be worn to work/school everyday and is just lovely really.
It is a plummy pink colour, with a hint of brown. This colour goes really well with greys, and lighter neutrals, methinks. Will definitely be wearing this more often now I have fallen in like with it again.
I've waffled on about the lipsticks, so I'll try to keep the rest of this short:
Crayon and Kohl Liner
Kohl in Petrol- (swatched above) - this is a green/blue colour, one that I don't wear enough (but will now!) The TS kohl pencils are really pigmented and nice to use. On me, the colour lasts all day and doesn't smudge. Can't ask for more than that really!
L-R- Marine Biologist, Glimmer, Bee's Knees, Peaches and Cream, Without a Clue
I really love the consistency and finish of all of the Topshop colours I have bought, and they last for 4/5 days without chipping on me. I use 2 coats to get an opaque finish (1 with Marine Bio) but some say that with lighter colours you may need 3 coats to achieve an even and opaque coverage.
At the moment I'm having a bit of a love affair with the chromey bronze colour glimmer, even though it is the least Springy colour there. The weather outside may just have something to do with it!
Ok, I'm going to leave it there now. I also have a blush, liner and a few other lip products that I haven't mentioned here, but I'll leave that for another day.
