Topshop The Damned Lipstick

I’ve reviewed some of the Topshop lipbullets before so you will know that I have a lot of love for that formula and colour range. I’ve also got a few of the actual lipsticks which are on my ‘to blog’ pile (I am so far behind!) This particular lipstick called to me not only due to the great name but also the deep, burgundy colour of the lipstick in the bullet. I had been wanting some more dark colours for a while so when I saw this, I knew I needed it.

The other lipsticks I’ve tried by Topshop were matte so I was intrigued to see what their velvet formula offerings were like.

I am torn. On the one hand, this lipstick feels lovely to wear and looks wonderful. Sorry for the dark photo above but that’s the only way I could show the true colour of this lipstick – in artificial light it looks more pinky but is definitely a bit vampier in natural light. The formula is creamy and easy to apply although as it becomes more matte as time goes on it feels a bit drying. It’s also not as long lasting as the matte versions, but that’s to be expected I suppose.

The Topshop packaging is a definite thumbs up: matte, simple and instantly recognisable. Love it.

This is still one of my favourite darker lipstick shades and is apparently a pretty good dupe for MAC ‘Rebel’ (a lipstick that is definitely on my wishlist) I just wish it lasted a bit longer.

Which are your favourite Topshop lipsticks, I think I need more!

I have been looking for a highlighter powder for a while but none had caught my eye. Then I saw this gorgeous beast, Soap and Glory Glow All Out, in Boots.

Described as ‘luminizing radiance face powder’, this is a light rose pink colour with a lovely golden shimmer. It also comes in a really cute compact that you wouldn’t feel embarrassed getting out in public to touch up your make up.

The photos show the powder applied after foundation and before blusher. My rosacea was playing up a bit today so I took the second to last photo once it had calmed down to show you the true colour. I feel like this makes me skin glow without looking over the top – no one wants to look like a disco ball at work!

I got this in Boots for £11 which is a bargain as I think it will last ages – you can buy it HERE.
