If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know I quite like the old Topshop makeup. Therefore whenever I come across something I have not seen before I’m usually pretty keen to give it a try! This is how I ended up purchasing this latest buy, Sheer Lips in the shade Swirl.
The idea of Sheer Lips is that they are very sheer, almost balm-like lipsticks that give you a subtle hint of colour with a moisturised finish. It’s presented like a lipstick but when applied looks a bit like a glossy lip balm. I went for the shade ‘swirl’ as I quite like a coral lip. Therefore I was a bit disappointed with this as it went on as a very nice sheer coral but it did not stay put at all.
However on the flip side, it felt very nourishing and it’s nice to have a natural coral, almost nude colour as I am usually a fan of bright lips. It’s nice to have an option for a toned down look for a change!
I am a little disappointed as normally I am a huge advocate for Topshops lip products. Their lipsticks are among my faves, however in comparison this was a massive let down and I’m not sure it’s particularly worth the £8 price tag. This is the first ‘meh’ review I’ve written a long time, I’m normally raving about exciting new finds, but this just didn’t live up to the hype and I am fan of being all open and honest.
