Review: Topshop Brighton Rock Lipstick.

Topshop Brighton Rock lipstick. (£8.)
Brighton Rock lipstick from Topshop has to be one of my favourite lip colours of all time. It's one of those pink colours that's bold, but it's not too bright and you can totally make it work for daytime as well as night time. I really like that it's not super blue toned, it tends to look like a fairly neutral pink on my complexion. You can apply a small amount mixed with a bit of lip balm for a more sheer colour or you can use it directly from the tube for a beautiful statement lip colour.

Like all Topshop lipsticks the quality is really lovely. It has a satin finish, it's not too glossy but it also doesn't feel too matte or drying on the lips. It lasts really well and also wears really well throughout the day, so if you don't want to top up your lip colour too often this fades evenly into a really pretty pinky-rose stain.

I absolutely loved this shade during the summer and I know I'll be reaching for it just as much during the colder months as well. It's one of those universal shades that look pretty with almost every outfit. These Topshop lipsticks feel much more expensive than £8 and I think they're worth every penny!

Have you ever tried any Topshop make up before?

  1. Very good review!That fact that it's not too bright cought me,because I don't like lipsticks that are too shiny and bright.This one is pink but it also looks more natural :)

  4. I'm a bit hopeless with lipsticks, I never really wear any make up, so I tend to feel really self-conscious when I wear any lipstick. I love the colour though.

  5. This is such a gorgeous colour! It's quite bright though, I'm not sure whether I'd be brave enough to wear it - but it definitely suits you! :)

  10. Jenny this is such a beautiful colour and you suit it so well! Totally agree about the quality of topshop lipsticks seeming much better than the £8 price tag.

  29. ALL of Topshop's lipsticks look really good on you, it's madness! Is it the range, or are you perhaps gifted at choosing the right shades?

  40. This colour matches your skin tone perfectly! I have a few polishes of theirs but nothing else, I wish I had fuller lips, I always feel a bit silly in lipstick.
