Topshop Mini Lip Bullet Lipstick Set

Here’s another quick and gorgeous makeup gift for last minute shoppers! The Topshop Mini Lip Bullet Lipstick Duo is $20 bucks and has too crazy pigmented Lip Bullet Lipsticks housed in a gift box ready for gifting.

Slap a bow on this bad boy, sign a card, and gift it away to your fellow makeup lover.

These precise point slanted matte lipsticks fit the contour of lips beautifully and provide long wearing, super pigment rich matte color to lips in a single swipe. If you’re kinda yearning and craving the new MAC Nasty Gal Lipsticks I’d totally tell you to haul this set as they are just as intensely pigmented and you’ll get two shades for almost the price of one MAC Lipstick.

The formula is super soft with an easy glide on lips and a thin matte texture that doesn’t cling to drier areas so application looks soft, even, and flawless. The colors wear for a solid seven hours with Wine Gum leaving a stain well after the shade has worn away. I had minor migration issues with Wine Gum so you might wanna wear a transparent or colored lip liner along with it as it is a very, very pigmented color that does like to move around a little bit.

One thing that did drive me crazy is the fact these don’t swivel all the way down so I was prone to slicing off a chunk whenever I replaced the cap! This drove me a bit crazy.

Possibly one of the nicest things about this formula is how color rich the shades are. They are opaque on a single application and wear very strongly without being drying (nor hydrating either but not uncomfortably so).

Honestly, the formula would rival any brands such as Urban Decay and MAC in terms of the incredible color pay off you get from the shades and great formula! Sometimes it’s hard to believe that Topshop specializes in clothing and accessories and not makeup!

Love this set.

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. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment.

    Motel is really cute! Wine Gum is too dark for me though. But both shades are really intense, I love that.
