Topshop Secret Admirer Lipstick: topshop (£8)
Topshop Secret Admirer on paper sounds like a lipstick that is right up my street. Described as a "Warm Nude" I saw it online and though Ch-Ching! It arrived in suitable time, opened it up, so far so good. However once I put it on I was like ARHHGHDGJJJFGHH! Not right for my skin tone. On me it seems to look a bit blue toned, which I don't think it looks in the tube at all. On me I think it looks really purple and milky, which I think could be down the to the hyper pigmentation of my lips. My lips are super pigmented so lighter colours are really hard for me to pull off because of darkness that's already there. Do you get what I mean, however It's just not right on me!
Despite this the lipstick feels smooth, applies well and does last a decent amount of time. I presume the formula is the same as the other Topshop lipsticks as well, but this one feels a lot more tacky on the lips. It could be that Im applying more than I normally would to get full coverage. Overall a nice addition to the Topshop makeup range, but the colour is sadly not for me! I wouldn't discount the lipstick because it doesn't suit me, almost everyones skin tone is different. For example see how it looks on Milly and then how it looks on Jen, totally different each time. Innocent is still my go-to Topshop pink lipstick as it suits me much more & I think it's been recently re-released! However If your more cool toned then this would be one for you!
