Sale Bargains: Topshop Sheer Lips in Play With Fire & Nuclear

Hands up who loves a bargain? I was having a browse in Outfiit last week and noticed they had a little sale on the Topshop Makeup stand. I wouldn't usually bother looking at sale makeup as I always think it's usually tatty stuff people have fingered (lol). Anyway, for some reason I thought I'd have a little rake through and I was amazed to find that some of the stuff was actually in pretty good condition. Anyway, there was a bunch of their Sheer Lips Lipsticks and I managed to find the shade Nuclear for £3 (was £8). All the others were a really barbie pink that just wouldn't suit me so off I went to the till. Then a couple of days later I was in my regular Topshop in town and noticed they also had some in the sale so I had a little look and low and behold amongst the many barbie pinks was the shade Play With Fire all on it's lonesome. I absolutely love an orange lip so I grabbed it quick and ran to the till.

I'd never tried these lipsticks before but just looking at them reminded me of the MAC Pro Longwear lipsticks so I was intrigued to give them a go. I absolutely love the sleek, matte black packaging with the little stars. How cute?! The formula of these is honestly so so nice. They're sheer (obv), with a nice sheen & can be layered for deeper pigmentation, but what I love most about these is how moisturising they are on the lips. They don't cling to any dry patches and feel so comfortable to wear. Obviously, with all moisturising lipsticks, the lasting power isn't great, but since I have dry lips I very rarely find a lipstick that lasts all day as I have to opt for hydrating, creamy formulas.

Play With Fire is a beautiful bright(ish) orange which I have no doubt will look great with a tan. It does look scarily bright in the bullet, but because it's sheer, it applies onto the lips with the perfect amount of pigmentation for every day wear. I know I'm gonna get a lot of use out of this one during the Summer.

Nuclear is a bright coral pink and will probably suit most skintones. Again, the colour is sheer with a lovely sheen but is buildable if you want deeper colour and feels moisturising and not at all heavy on the lips. 

If I were you, I'd go and raid your local Topshop. You won't be disappointed with these ones.

  3. These are gorgeous and what a bargain too!! I'll definitely take a look next time I'm out and about, I was actually looking at the lipsticks on the website yesterday, I like the look of Brighton Rock, I have Beguiled and it's a brilliant lipstick with fab wear time so I'm hoping if I pick up BR it will be the same, love these though, fingers crossed they'll have some when I go :) lots of love xx
