Sorry I haven't been around much this week, but I went to help at Brownie camp because my Mum's a leader (I know, I'm too cool sometimes) so I've only just got a chance to blog. Anyway, today I thought I'd talk about my latest lipstick love which my Mum treated me to in London last week- Topshop Whimsical...
First of all I adore any make up that comes in a box so it got a bit thumbs up from me before I even looked at the product inside and the stripey metal casing makes it a very hand bag worthy lipstick too. The website describes the colour of whimsical as a 'pinky nude' which is my favourite sort of lip colour and it certainly doesn't disappoint as it's the perfect peachy pink nude with a bright coral undertone, making it ideal for both day and night particularly during summer. It has a matte/velvet finish with great pigmentation that creates a good coverage in one swipe, but is much less drying than the other matte members of it's colour family (Barry M 147, Topshop Coy...) and wearing a tiny bit of vaseline underneath allows it to apply smoothly, fade evenly and not cling to dry patches. It also lasts a good few hours on the lips and I'm really just a very happy bunny to have this lipstick in my life! Oh, and at an affordable £8 a pop I think they are a great purse friendly alternative to MAC lipsticks so what's not to love?
Have you tried any Topshop lipsticks yet? What other shades should I add to my wishlist?
As I said I've mainly just been helping at Brownie camp this week, but I've also celebrated my boyfriend's birthday which was yesterday and been at work today so I'm excited to just have a night in tonight!
I hope you've all had a lovely week!
