Pink lips were big during the Spring/Summer 2014 runway shows held in September,  matching the look of next season’s designerwear. Where designer goes, the high street follows with brands like Topshop, the fashion and beauty leaders.

A Topshop lip colour that was available to buy previously, Topshop Lips in Brighton Rock reflects Spring/Summer’s pink beauty trends perfectly. A vivid fuchsia pink, this lipstick gives an intensely pigmented soft matte finish, a texture suited to daytime or the night. This lipstick at first can be quite drying so condition and nourish your lips with a lip salve before applying. We noticed stayability is not one of this lipstick’s greatest strengths, which is why we love Lipcote. Extend the life of this colour with Lipcote and for a more professional, smooth look, apply lipstick with a lipstick brush although this is not strictly necessary. Lipstick is becoming more and more a feature of dressing up, going out, and making a statement that is glamorous. Topshop’s impressive array of matte colours in the Lips range certainly suits a mood that is current. Also, the blue undertone in Brighton Rock lends a coveted tooth whitening effect. The zebra stripe lipstick casing in cream is sturdy, made in Italy, suggesting the quality we expect. Topshop Lips in Brighton Rock doesn’t disappoint. It’s another success, a favourite from the Topshop Makeup beauty line! X
