Review: Topshop Sheer Lips in Swirl

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.


  1. That's a really pretty lipstick, a shame about the longevity of it though :( xx

  3. I'm not really into light colors but I can never say no to peachy or coral lipsticks. It sucks that this one didn't live up to you expectations since it looks really lovely. :)


  4. It's such a shame you didn't like it! I'm a big fan of sheer lipsticks AND Topshop's normal range of lipsticks- I was kind of looking forward to trying these! But at the amount they cost I would think they'd stay put for a bit longer :/ Thanks for sending me your link during the #bbloggers chat :) xx

  5. I love sheer lipsticks, YSL Sheer Candy in 6 being my absolute favourite. I've never really tried topshop makeup before though!

  9. Great post! it's nice too see someone actually blog about a product that they aren't too keen on so people looking to purchase a lip product with strong colouring knows what not to buy :) xxxx


  10. I've never bought any Topshop lippies before. I'll be sure to stay away from this one though!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Found your blog via the Bbloggers chat on Twitter last night and am now following :)
