My first venture into Topshop make up and I’m happy to report back I likey! I recently tried the TopShop Lips Lipstick and if you’re a fond fan of creamy semi-matte formulated lipsticks you’re going to adore these.
And by the very way, did you know, that Nordstrom now carries Topshop Make up online (not sure about in store but a huge selection is available on Nordie’s site)? Coolness!
Let’s take a look at these lipsticks that made me hungry to try more TopShop Make up!

First off these come in a rather wicked tin tube…the packaging is weighty and has a luxe feel. Quite nice! They are a little pricey at $16 each so you might question that considering that’s very mid-range pricing however, the formula is well worth the price tag.
These are a super creamy semi-matte finished lipstick. They glide onto lips like buttery and do not have a dry texture in the least. They have a bit of sheen to the finish and provide full coverage with a rich, true to tube pigmentation. It’s really the color pay off that’s the most stunning here. I’m not sure why but I would not have never expected this much color from an in house brand. I was deeply surprised that a single stroke yields full coverage! The creaminess of the product feels a little heavier on lips but still wears fairly cushy and comfortable. They don’t dry out through the wear and have at least, without eating or drinking, a four hour wear with minor fading into hour five and a staining effect left behind at around hour six so color doesn’t completely disappears but leaves behind a rather lovely stain. The semi-matte finish doesn’t crack or dry out nor does it flake away however, brighter colors tend to want to migrate and feather so a little clear or colored lip liner is best applied to keep them on track.

I don’t typically like creams or matte lipsticks but TopShop surprises with their Lips line of lipsticks. They are well worth there $16 price tag and gain a healthy Muse Approval from yours truly.
