topshop lipstick in whimsical: topshop (£7)
I saw this on the Topshop website a few days ago and made a mental note to swatch it when I went into Topshop. From the photos I knew it would be right up my street, anything coral pink and I'm like a magpie! Topshop Whimsical is a coral toned pinky nude lipstick with a matte full coverage finish. It's the perfect addition to my (always) growing coral lipstick collection. I like this one as the formula is less stiff and chalky than other lipsticks in the same colour family (see Nars Bolero, Barry M 147 and Topshop Coy). The finish is very creamy and semi matte: similar to the MAC Creamsheens. Its more of a creamy formula than a matte one though (Topshop state they are matte) which is a shame as overall I do prefer my lipsticks matte. However it isn't really a problem, it's a beautiful colour and applies well for a low end lipstick. Thumbs up from me!
