topshop lips; whimsical

TOPSHOP lips in whimsical £8 

I'm a big lover of a good ol' Topshop lipstick; Secret Admirer is one of my all time favourites so was super happy to receive this shade in my Christmas stocking. I pointed it out Whimsical to my mum when shopping; at the time I didn't realise it was a matte finish + was quite worried when I noticed as my lips are usually a bit too dry to pull them off. Topshop describe it as a "velvet finish lipstick to smooth, moisturise and nourish lips", sounds pretty good eh?

I've worn this shade a few times now + have learnt that I do need to be having a 'good lip day' or have time to prep (a Lush sugar scrub + some Carmex usually works a treat!) or it doesn't quite sit right and looks a bit chalky on my dry patches. I don't know whether my lips are drier than I thought but it does take some work to get a truly even application, bit of a thumbs down moment! However, if my lips are nice + moisturised + with a bit of wiping + patting, it is a beautiful peachy, pinky, maybe a little coral everyday lippy.  All in all, for £8 it is a lovely, full coverage, non drying matte shade... that being said I think I've learnt my lesson + shall stick to the cream finishes as they're basically a lot less faff for a swipe-and-go girl like me! Have you tried this shade, what did you think?

  1. Love this colour!! I don't know if there's something in peachy lipstick shades but like you I always find they make my lips look dryer than they really are compared to others :/ Carmex normally works a treat though!!
