|Lipstick Topshop (Beguiled)|
With Topshop lipstick seeming to be a firm favourite on the blogosphere I picked up 'Beguiled', this wine-y (honestly, even if the photo doesn't seem so) one when the 20% student discount was on last week. Up until now my only other lipstick experience has been with Bobbi Brown, and in comparison I was quite disappointed.
The Topshop lippy is really quite soft, which made the application a weeee bit messy, taking a fair bit of going round the edges with a cosmetic bud. As you can see on the photo, the colour consistency isn't exactly marvellous either, and it's prone to smudging.
Hopefully a lip liner will sort the smudging out, but after the hype I feel a bit deflated. Then again, it retails at £8, a whole £10 less than the Bobbi Brown ones, so I suppose I shouldn't really have had that high expectations. If anything, it does actually taste quite nice, so at least I could eat it?
Let me know if you've had any really good lipsticks from anywhere; I need to branch out a bit!
