Topshop Lipstick: Brighton Rock

April 25, 2012

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.

    This looks really similar to a Natural Collection lipstick I have in ‘Raspberry’. I find this kind of pink so much more wearable than paler toned ones x
