Another day, another lipstick! (TBH, i’ve wanted to do a lipstick overview post(s) for a while. But I keep buying new ones! One day, I promise!) This is Topshop’s very lemminged after Brighton Rock. Not being a huge pink lipstick girl in the past, I wasn’t sure how i’d feel about it. But I WANTED it soooooo badly! I bit the bullet (not literally!) and here’s what it…brought me.
There’s something mysteriously alluring about imported makeup. I guess that’s why I read a lot about people in other countries lemming over things like Wet’n'Wild and NYX…granted…that should have probably been my first clue.
Topshop is (from what I gather) the UK equivalent of Forever21 in its relatively low cost (reaaaaaaaaally relatively) and frequent designer “inspired” pieces. They also have their own makeup line, which i’ve been wanting to try out forever. I had a 10% off coupon and they were having some sort of free shipping offer for Memorial Day, so I mini hauled. Here’s the first of the three I purchased, Infrared.
I don’t think I ever would have purchased this lipstick if it weren’t for Lilit of Makeup and Macaroons. She’s given Impassioned so much love that it’s contagious! Until recently, I didn’t particularly care for pink lipsticks. But lately, my collection of them has been growing. This was the first of the latest of my bright pink purchases.
Beauty.com recently started offering most OCC Lip Tars in their lineup. However, before that they also offered two sets a Brights and a Neutral/Natural set (the neutral set has since been discontinued). The sets consisted of 5 Lip Tars (normally $14 USD Each) and OCC’s Precision Lip Brush ($18 USD alone) for $49.50 USD. Back in late April I jumped on this deal – I had a few Drugstore.com Dollars and a discount promo code available so the whole set ended up costing me a piddly $29.44!! How’s that for a deal?
I know this line came in a while ago (by now, everyone’s seen Emma Watson’s ads for these lipsticks). It was one of my first ban’s-over purchases way back in early April…but i’m only just now reviewing it. Lancome describes their offering as a 6-hour wear, vibrant, lipstick that “is surprisingly featherlight, offering delightful comfort.” Well, late or no the world always needs more reviews so here is mine!
