Review | Topshop Lips Lipstick


"Velvet finish lipstick to smooth, moisturise and nourish lips. Apply for fabulous colour and moisturised, matte finish, wear alone or with gloss for a shiny finish." Topshop

Topshop lipsticks are usually talked about as being as good as MAC or any other high end lipstick, just with a cheaper price tag of £8-£10. For a while, I wasn't too fussed about picking these lipsticks up. I had tried other shop's makeup like Miss Selfridge before, and to be honest, it wasn't that good. In fact, it was shockingly bad! But after seeing so many good reviews on these lipsticks, I decided to pick up a couple.

 The two shades I have are: Infrared (a bold, red orange) and Confession (a bright, hot pink). Both of the lipstick's formula are very good. They are both very pigmented, so when you apply them you don't have to press really hard or keep swiping it across your lip. I'm so glad that Topshop's makeup is this pigmented, you can get other lipsticks from actual makeup brands for the same price that are just terrible! They are also both really moisturising and smooth to apply, but I always like to wear lip balm underneath to keep the colour even. The lipsticks also have a kind of strong fruity smell, which I'm not sure if I'm that keen on but I'm sure others will enjoy. However, the smell does fade after applying the product, so it doesn't bother me that much. As for staying power, these lipsticks are quite good and will usually last around 3 hours before I need to reapply.

The packaging of the lipsticks (and the whole makeup line in general) is probably one of the nicest makeup packaging! I love the drawn on design and it definitely stands out from other brands. However, I do think the light cream/ white colour they chose wasn't the best idea as it can get pretty grubby after a while of sitting in your makeup bag.

What are your thoughts on Topshop's lipsticks?

  1. I only have one Topshop lipstick so far which is whimsical and I really love it so I'm keen to get some different shades. These look like amazing colours and much more pigmented than the one I have, they look like dupes for MAC morange and costa chic too! such a lovely blog, new follower :) xxx

  24. These are both great colours- you can't beat a bright lipstick for a pop of colour in the Winter.

    I've only ever had nail polishes from Topshop but I think I'm missing out as I keep hearing great things about so many of their products.

  28. I love these colours! They are so pretty. I have had a topshop lipstick before (I can't remember the name though,oops!) and it was really nice, but I didn't use it for a bit and when I came to applying it, it was awful:( maybe it was just the way I stored it. I loved it so much that I would definitely buy another colour though. Brilliant review :) xx
