Topshop 'Innocent' Lipstick!








I've never really been one for wearing lipstick on a daily basis, but lately I've been trying to get more use out of my collection by incorporating it into my every day make up looks.

The one that I've been reaching for the most is Topshop's 'Innocent' and loving it, despite the fact that I don't really think pink is my colour - I'm definitely more of a dark lip kind of gal!

It's a blue toned mid (ish) pink although sometimes it does appear a little bit on the lilac side, much like it looks in the bullet but I'm definitely not going to complain about that at all because I'm all for purple lipstick. The colour payoff is great too!

The finish is beautiful although somewhat hard to explain in my opinion as, I'm not sure if this is the case with everyone who wears it but sometimes it looks to have almost a satin finish but other times it's glossy and has a beautiful shine to it - both finishes I love.

I myself am indifferent about the scent of the product itself, I don't love it but I by no means hate it either.

The only vaguely negative thing I can find about this lipstick is the fact that it can accentuate dry lips a tiny bit so I'd recommend a little bit of exfoliation or a lip balm before hand but I have notoriously dry lips and I wouldn't shy away from using this even when they are a little dry.

I'd definitely recommend trying this lipstick out and I'm excited about trying out some of their other shades.
Have you tried any Topshop lipsticks? Would you recommend any?

Thanks for reading,
