Topshop's Lips in 'OHH LA LA'

I hate writing negative reviews but I was so disappointed by this Lipstick I felt the need to share.  First of all I would like to state that I love Topshop’s Beauty range, their nail varnishes are high quality and fab. I have also tried a few of their other lipsticks which I really rate and use regularly.

I have been keen to try a coral/orangey shade of lipstick for a while and come across Topshop Lips ‘OHH LA LA’ a few times whilst browsing. I love the colour it’s really fun, perfect for summer and I think I can pull it off with my skin tone.
The reason I am put off is that it is so drying! It dries up on your lips and highlights any dry patches, any imperfections and really clumps. Making it look like a super cheap product! All odd when on the website it’s classed as being like ‘velvet’ and ‘nourishing’. I am so gutted as I have always found Topshop’s Lips range to be really good and have tried a few shades now, so I have no idea why this one is pants in comparison!
For £8 I expected a lot more, so onwards I go in the hunt for the perfect orangey/coral lipstick!

P.S Have you checked out my ‘800 Bloglovin followers Giveaway’ yet? You could win a MAC Lipstick in ‘Plumful’, Kylie Minogue ‘Pink Sparkle’  Eau De Toilette, a Tangle Teezer ‘The Original’ Detangling Hairbrush and a Nail Rock Glitter and Polish Set... so what are you waiting for?


  1. Oh nooo! I only have one Topshop lipstick, I thought I'd love the colour but I'm not a huge fan (not of the lipstick, just the colour on me) but I really want to try some more!

  2. Ohh it's sad that it is so drying because the colour is really gorgeous!!

  3. That's a lovely colour, shame that it is drying! Xx

  4. It's such a beautiful colour so it's an absolute shame that the formula isn't up to par.

  7. I have not tried anything from the TopShop cosmetic counter but I do love the shade of this but like you for £8 I am not sure if I will try the lipsticks we will see!! xx | Giveaway

  8. It's a shame this didn't work out for you! I hate drying lipsticks, nothing looks worse than clumps of lipstick! The Revlon Colourburst Matte Balms have a nice orange coral shade and they are matte but really really hydrating :)
