Topshop Applause Sheer Lip

Is it a lipstick? A lip balm? I dunno but I do know Topshop Sheer Lip ($16) is a MUST HAVE! This hybrid lipstick slash lip balm formula give lips luscious color with a high sheen finish in a soothing, comforting balm texture that keeps my lips pleasantly hyrated through the wear.

Take a peek!

I wish it was a LITTLE cheaper but aside from that Topshop’s Sheer Lip formula is the bees knees. This hybrid formula has a high sheen finish with the texture of of a tacky balm (don’t worry, it’s not uncomfortable or sticky and has a lightweight finish) that wears for a solid 4 hours while providing the color of a lipstick.

It glides on lips and provides buttery color giving lips a nice color pay off with a high sheen that looks almost glossy. The wear is super lightweight yet it has a slight tackiness that allows it to wear a solid four hours without fading, migrating, or feathering around my lips and mouth. I didn’t notice any fragrance or flavor with these so sensitive users will be thrilled by that aspect!

I tried the shade Applause which is a bright shade of fuchsia pink as you can see below in my lips.

Overall the Topshop Sheer Lip formula is a joy to use especially if you’re a find fan of tinted lip balms. This goes above and beyond your average tinted lip balm with a longer wear and way more pigmented that the common lip balm would. I love how these keep my lips pleasantly hydrated through the wear as well!

They are available in six shades at Topshop stores or online at topshop.com but be warned you might not be able to stop at a single purchase.

I’m giving them a Muse Approval.

I wish they were $12 or so dollars that would make them perfect in my book!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.
