Ever since the limited edition A/W Smoke & Mirrors make up collection went up on the Topshop website I've been umming and ahhing over whether to purchase the two lipsticks. A few days ago I finally thought 'sod it' and made a little order which is something I don't do often, partly because Topshop is slightly out of my price range and the £4 standard delivery charge is quite frankly daylight robbery. I begrudge paying for delivery at the best of times but I did get 10% student discount so I guess I can't complain too much!
Topshop Rumour Has It lipstick is described on the website as a dusty rose colour and I'd agree with that. I may or may not have bought this purely because of the name, (yes I am still obsessed with Adele!) and in all honesty I didn't really expect this to be a shade that would suit me. It's a little different to the shades that I usually go for but it's one of those nudes that instantly adds a little bit of sultry glamour to any make up look but especially compliments a soft brown smokey eye & neutral blush.
Topshop Pillow Talk lipstick is a classic baby pink colour and I can never have enough of these in my collection. It's not too cool or too warm toned which makes it so incredibly wearable and I think this is a shade that would suit so many different people. I've been especially enjoying wearing this with a soft taupe eyeshadow, lashings of mascara & a pop of Illamasqua Promise cream blusher on the cheeks. I think fresh looking make up is going to be one of my staple looks this autumn and winter!
I absolutely adore the formulation of these lipsticks, they have a beautifully glossy finish & they last surprisingly well on the lips as well. At £9 I know some think that they're slightly overpriced but I think they have a pretty reasonable price point for the quality. They're around £5 cheaper than MAC lipsticks and minus the lovely vanilla scent I think they're of a really similar quality!
Have you tried either of these lipsticks? What do you think of Topshop's make up?
