Review: Topshop lipsicks in 'Brighton Rock' and 'Idol'

So, for the past few months, every time I have passed the Topshop make up section, I have basically salivated over the beautiful make-up they have on offer, especially the lipsticks. But for ages, I didn't allow myself to purchase any, using the excuse of 'I need no more make-up.' Clearly, this didn't last long. As I hadn't bought any new make-up for a while, I thought I'd let myself have a little treat, and so I bought 'Brighton Rock', and more recently, 'Idol.'

I am a big lover of bright pink lipsticks, and both of these caught my attention as soon as I laid my eyes on them.

'Brighton Rock' is a gorgeous bright, candy pink colour, and I love it on me just as much as I loved it in the shop. I think it would look brilliant with a summer tan, but alas, I am the palest person around, so I'll never know!

'Idol' is a brighter, more blue-toned pink, and personally, my favourite. I love how vivid it is, it jumped out at me in the shop, and does so in my make-up collection too!

Both retail for £8 in store or on the Topshop website, however, I have a feeling 'Brighton Rock' has been discontinued as I can't find it in any shops, you can still buy it on the Topshop website here though.

Which is your favourite?

Just a heads up, I'm going away for a few days tomorrow to see my boyfriend, so I'll probably schedule a post, but I won't be around as much. I'll still be active on my twitter and instagram (@sirensandbells) though. To those who live apart from their other halves when they're home from Uni etc, how on earth do you cope?! Me and my boyfriend live 3 hours apart when we're at home, it's really hard!

PS. I recently got Pinterest. I don't really understand it, but it seems like a more organised Tumblr, which is fantastic! Come follow me here.  What's your Pinterest?

  6. Love these shades on you! Topshop makeup is just so perfectly packaged and so nice I can never resist it!

    I live 2 hours by train away from my boyfriend and I hate it, so I feel your pain! I think all you can do is plan for the day when you will both be in the same place and try not to let it get you down.
