Topshop Lipstick: Brighton Rock

I’m a HUGE fan of Topshop make-up – it started with a brief dabble in the cream blushers, then moved on to a full-blown obsession with the nail colours and now on to lipsticks.

Brighton Rock is a vibrant hot pink, but with a matte finish. I love a bright pink, but rarely go for a matte finish – I found this one matte, but not too drying. The plus side of matte shades is that they tend to last longer than glossy finishes.


I also love how a matte finish can make a bright lip more wearable for daytime – as it somehow manages to tone it down a bit. Having said all that, if your lips are dry this can show up any flaws – so give them a buff and some balm before applying.
Available from Topshop.

Bought by me.

    I saw this in the shop but the brightness scared me, however it looks so wearable on you! might have to go back and invest! It will also be my first topshop makeup purchase! can you recommend anything else? :)

    I’ve yet to try any of Topshops make up range, but hearing so much about it I think I need to give it a go. The lipstick really suits you!

    I’ve just started my blog, I’d love it if you could have a look and follow if you like.

    Thanks, Lisa
