There has been a lot of hype and excitment over the Topshop makeup range and I obvs had to have a little sneaky peek. I wish I'd have bought more than just the one lipstick, but hopefully, after payday, I'll be able to buy what I want :)
So, I bought this beaut.
First off, I really like the packaging. I know some people really hate it, but I quite like the feel of the tube and tbh there's not much you can do to make a listick tube interesting or different.
The colour is Rio Rio and a bright red which stands out for miles. I quite like the consistency of the product although I think it would be easier to apply with a lip brush because it is very difficult to remove so precise application is a must. It's quite a 'wet' lipstick so it moisturises and feels really smooth on the lips, however it's not THAT wet that it slides about. It's just right.
The only downsides I can think of about this product is that the day after wearing it my lips feel incredibly dry and sometimes crack slightly which is uncomfortable to say the least. Although staying power is quite a good point for when you want to wear it, it's a bit stubborn when you need to remove it and I ended up looking like I've been eating beans or tomato soup for a few hours afterwards.
Apart from that I really like the product and I would recommend it for its intense colour and lasting abilities.
I reeeaally want to try some other Topshop makeup now :)
