Topshop Lipstick 'Macaroon'

I have been so tempted by Topshop make-up ever since I started blogging, I discovered a fantastic range of nail polishes yet it has taken me just under one year to buy one of their lipsticks, and honestly, I'm slightly disappointed...only slightly.

















































I picked up the Topshop Lipstick in 'Macaroon' a few months ago, it was a choice roughly between this and the much raved about shade 'Whimsical'; in the end I went against the majority and picked up something different. Now don't get me wrong, I do like this lipstick however I find it has little staying power, meaning it needs reapplying quite often throughout the day; it definitely fades quicker than many other products I have. Along with this, having only had this lipstick from Topshop I can only speak for this particular shade but I have found that I 100% need a lip balm under this as it can look pretty awful upon bare lips that are dry, which mine normally are. I do think that if your lips are generally fine then these lipsticks are great! 

It is however a beautiful shade of pink with sight hints of coral running through it, of which upon the lips I think it appears a little bit lighter than it initially looks within the bullet. I really do like the texture of the lipstick, it is very creamy and soft which makes me want to purchase another. I've found that this shade is very pigmented which is impressive for a high street brand as even though the colour pay off is fantastic; it isn't too bright or daring therefore making it a brilliant choice for every day.
 
All in all I'm something like 60/40 in favour of this lipstick, I love it but there's aspects about it that have left me a little bit underwhelmed therefore, even though Whimsical sounds great, I'm rather unsure as to whether to pick it up another as for £8 I could probably find something equally matched, if not better.

I think I've fulfilled my curiosity with Topshop lipsticks for now; although I know I will probably cave in the future! Do you have any recommendations?

Topshop make up is cruelty free which is incredible as I personally think they're pretty influential on the high street, huge thumbs up!

    1. I really like the colour and the pigmentation etc, I just found it to cake up in dry patches which irritates me to no end. However, many lipsticks do this so I'm not completely put off Topshop lipsticks :) xx

  2. I've been wearing it today actually!:) I LOVE it. I have to say that lighter shades of topshop lipsticks do not have brilliant staying power (the dark shades are way better!) but I find them moisturizing enough not to be too moany about reapplying haha They are definitely my favourite lipsticks on the high street! (slightly got carried away, eh, sorry, I just really do like em lol) x

    1. I love t he colour, it is beautiful and the actual formula is really creamy and rather pleasant. I haven't tried a darker shade, I may have a look at those closer to autumn :) ooo don't apologise, if you love something you love it :D I do like these, I'm just not as blown away as I thought I would be that's all, it is still a very nice lipstick :) xx

    1. I was undecided for such a long time Megan, I'm glad I picked up one to try though and I know I will probably cave in the future (I always do) haha! These are nice and if your lips are not as dry as mine I would really recommend them. Thank you! :) xx

    1. To be honest the formula is not too bad at all, it's probably my lips more than anything as they're always quite dry xx

  8. I love Topshop lipsticks as I have Innocent and Brighton Rock, and I agree with the formulas and having to put lip balm underneath it, but they're amazing dupes for MAC lipsticks and they're so much cheaper. This colour is beautiful though!

  9. This shade suits you very well! I've heard a lot about Topshop lipsticks, and want to try one very much but unfortunately we don't have topshop in germany aaaaah :( do you think it will stay better on your lips with a base?

  15. I've always been reluctant to try Topshop make-up as some of my friends said they weren't that great. However, the colour is gorgeous and I might be tempted now...

  16. I really want to try Topshop lipsticks but reading this makes me think to perhaps stick with MAC instead. Maybe I'll just buy one and see how I get on with it before picking up loads. Thanks for sharing :) xx

    1. I prefer MAC definitely but then again they are nearly double the price so I guess it depends on how much you want a lipstick :) thank you xx

  21. To be honest, I've never seen/heard that Topshop have cosmetic line as well :D But after I read this post, I think I want one too! :D

    The packaging (box) looks quite and the tube is so edgy :))
    Pretty shade, anyway :)

  22. I really do love Topshop lipsticks though they definitely show up dry patches on lips easily. I always have to use a lip balm under lip stick anyway so this isn't normally a big problem for me :)
