Lipstick Lovin’

If there’s one thing for sure, it is that I am no beauty expert and I always stick to what I know.  Well, I might not be any expert, but I am open to testing new, reasonably priced products. When it comes to my lips, I’m a blonde who likes her pinks. Call me a girly girl, but hey, it’s what I know. I have tried many, many lip-glosses and decided it was time to go for a matte look.  

My housemate had several Topshop lipsticks that always look great on her, so I decided to give one a go. At £8, this was a way to try out a new product without breaking the bank.I went for the ‘Falling Fast’ shade, a little less daring than her shades of purple, but one that I hoped would suit me.

To put it simply, I am pretty impressed. The smoothness of the product ensures that it glides onto the lips effortlessly, yet is easy to dab off if any unwanted marks get onto your skin. I feel that the colour really suits me and fits in with the way that I apply the rest of my make up. With reference to the other colours for this product, I know that they look fantastic for those of you who prefer something a little more ‘out there’.

The one downfall I would give the product is that although the colour does last fairly well, the whole freshness of the colour does need reapplying fairly soon after each application. My tip would therefore be to carry it around with you! That aside, I would recommend this to anyone!
