The Swatch Series: Topshop Lipsticks

Hi everyone!

Today, I am bringing you another The Swatch Series post on my new favourites, Topshop lipsticks. You may have seen from this post and this post, where I showcased my Topshop lipstick haul.

As always, pictures are tops ;)

Brighton Rock

Innocent

Charmed, from the Sisters of the New Moon collection

The Topshop lipsticks are priced at SGD19, and I have seen Topshop makeup stands at the ION, Vivocity and Knightsbridge stores. Brighton Rock and Innocent are permanent colours, while Charmed is with the Sisters of the New Moon collection, so it is limited edition and hence the different lipstick packaging.

All three lipsticks have excellent payoff. I believe Brighton Rock has a matte finish while the other two have velvet/satin finishes. They have a nice scent, to me at least, but I can't really describe what the scent is..??

These lipsticks are great for a fun and bright summer look. You can either layer these full-on for a bright, punchy colour on your lips, or dab these on and then smoothen it out with your fingers for a more subtle, stained effect. So you can still wear these bright colours, but they are less scary for those who are not too fond of bright colours.

Personally, I like wearing Charmed dabbed on and then with a slick of either coral or pink gloss ;)

Have you tried any Topshop lipsticks?

 

Thanks for reading!

I layered the lipstick 2-3 times when swatching to get the truest colour, but even with just one layer, the colour is pretty good already!

I wanna try the Innocent colour for a while now but I feel like its similar to one of the Revlon lipsticks. Could you find any dopes for Innocent?

Hi Siti, well according to this blogger, Topshop Innocent and Revlon's Pink Pout are dupes. http://giamay.blogspot.com/2012/04/dupe-topshop-lipstick-in-innocent.htm
I have both, but I dunno, I feel like I can wear the Topshop one more easily than I can wear the Revlon one. Maybe I can do a comparison soon.
