I bought this shade months ago after being inspired by this Kim Kardashian photo. The lipstick she is wearing is Nars Shiap but after I tried it on in Space NK, I found that it was quite drying on the lips. I resolved to hunt down a Nars Shiap dupe and found a near perfect colour match in Rimmel’s Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick in Shade 20.
This is a high intensity cool pink fushia lipstick and the colour is insane.
Does it emphasise your lips? Erm yes! and that means that all other makeup should be toned down in order to maximize the focus on the lips.
Would I recommend? Definitely – goes on easily, lasts well, affordable and most importantly -I feel like a rock star wearing this!
Available to purchase at Boots and FeelUnique.
When I think of Topshop, I think of clothing and the latest fashion trends. Makeup and Beauty isn’t the first thing that comes to mind but I was pleasantly surprised on a recent visit. I was impressed by the bright and vibrant lipstick offerings – the shade range reminded me of MAC lipsticks and at £8 is nearly half the price of a MAC lippie – £15.50. I found myself at the till purchasing Brighton Rock – a vivid, bright pink lipstick.
Brighton Rock is a satin matte finish lipstick which is quite moisturising and very pigmented which gives a great colour pay-off – one quick swipe on your lips and you’re ready to go. The lipstick also wears off really nicely and I love the cute name which instantly brings back happy memories of lazy summers on Brighton Beach.
A fabulous colour – a daring shade of pink!
I’d defo recommend checking these out and swatching them to see how vibrant the colours are.
Available at Topshop for £8.
