I tried Topshop’s Lip Cream in “Smart” on a whim- walking around in the store before going out one night, I thought I was looking really washed out and needed a dark lip. Naturally, I grabbed the closest lip product that I could find in a deep burgundy/ wine shade.
I was really surprised at how good this Topshop lip cream is! The lip cream is sort of a cross between a liquid lipstick and a lip stain. It’s highly pigmented, applies easily (with a doefoot wand applicator) and doesn’t dry out your lips at all! It actually feels like you have a balm on, but the colour payoff is amazing.
I’ve been reaching for this product in my daily makeup routine lately; I apply a tiny amount unto lips and use my ring finger or a brush to blend the product in as a stain. (For going out, I would do this in layers to build up the colour- it lasts for hours this way). And, unlike those long-wearing liquid lipsticks that flake off after hours, this doesn’t. So glad I discovered this product by accident!
