Topshop 'Innocent' lipstick

A few weeks ago I received a free lipstick in Innocent with my Topshop order. Their lipsticks and especially this shade are raved about in the blogging world, so I was super happy to get it!

The lipstick comes in a white rubberized packaging, which looks super cute. The shade is a blue toned light pink, with a slight lilac tinge. It has a creamy consistency and it glides on very smoothly. The pigmentation is great, and the formula reminds me of a MAC Cremesheen: very velvety and not drying on the lips. The finish is between matte and satin. The staying power is ok; it'll last about two hours before starting to fade and blend with my natural lip colour. Although I really like the formula and finish, I think the shade is not the right one for my complexion. I don't know why, but it washes me out, and makes my teeth look yellow!

I will definitely try more Topshop lipsticks and make-up in the future, because I have heard many good things about them. I would have liked this lipstick if only it wasn't for the colour! I guess it suits lots of girls (see Lily Melrose) but not me. Oh well!

The Topshop lipstick in Innocent retails for €10 and is available on the Topshop website. What are your thoughts about the Topshop make-up line?

  5. The packaging on this is precious! It looks like such a different color from the picture and then on your lips! Some colors like this make my teeth look a bit iffy as well, thats why I like to stick to berry colors!

    I wish I lived near a topshop :(

    giveaway!
