Topshop Velvet Finish Lipstick Review, Swatches and Photos
A little while back I did an incredibly large Topshop lipstick haul via their online store.
I have no idea why, sometimes I find myself going into weird moods where I’m just completely addicted to something in particular and want to grab them all! It’s weird I know. Anyways, I had a moment with Topshop lipsticks and so I ended up purchasing almost 12 different shades! For the purposes of not making my posts incredibly long I’ve broken up the haul into lipstick type instead
So today we’ll be addressing the Velvet Finish lipsticks. I purchased these in three different more pastel like shades: Charmed, a muted coral shade. Macaroon, a sweet warm pink and Saint, a pink toned nude.
All lipsticks are on the creamier side, just the way I like them! Similar to the texture of MAC cremesheens. The pigmentation is really quite impressive, despite the colour selection being on the lighter side.
If I were to give the Topshop lipsticks a particular scent, I’d say it was a cross between Estee Lauder and MAC. MAC is a pretty heavy Vanilla scent, and Estee Lauder is a super sweet fruit scent. Both are quite strong and lovely in their own way but can be slightly over powering at times. Topshop I find to be the happy medium, it’s a lovely sweet scent but not so strong that I can continue to smell it after application.
Packaging is an interesting one, I personally prefer plastic lipstick bullets, I find them easier to use. However the Topshop lipsticks are encased in metal packaging, not my favourite but not a deal breaker for me.
All in all, I LOVE the Topshop lipstick range! I really shouldn’t buy more, but I know I’ll be tempted in the future.
If you’re interested, each lipstick is available online for £8.00.
