My Favourite Lipstick - Topshop Brighton Rock
Since I wore this in my first FOTD I thought I'd swatch and review for you although I'm a little late in the game. When Topshop first released a make up line I didn't think it'd be any good but was in there one day and saw this colour.
Like I mentioned before, I was afraid to try bright colours out and despite how they look in the photo above (I'm still getting used to taking such close up face shots) I think this was a good choice.
In terms of pigmentation and colour, Brighton Rock is a really bright matte pink. The application's fairly good, although as I was in a rush above I didn't prep my lips at all, hence the lines.
However, this lipstick (as I've heard elsewhere) is pretty drying, so I'd definitely add balm or gloss if you want the 'hydration' that Topshop promises.
£8 is a little expensive for the formula, but I love the colour, so I might buy it again unless I get the MAC colours on my wishlist!
Buy it here. It looks more coral in the pictures than it turns out in real life.
