So for my first review, I thought it best to do one on my most recent purchase- a Topshop lipstick in "Infrared" :).
If you read Zoella's blog (http://www.zoella.co.uk/) then you will know she has raved on about this lipstick for a while. I happened to be near a Topshop and thought I would nip in for a little retail therapy ;). I am not usually one to wear extremely bright lipsticks such as this coral-orange but recently I am trying to become more experimental with make up colours rather than going for the same old same old!
So yeah, enough rambling! This is what the tube looks like and the actual lipstick.
I think the casing for the lipsticks are lovely, they feel almost like a cardboard kind of material, very transportable. The only downside is how dirty they get after being in my make-up bag- with eyeshadow fallout everywhere and other powders etc in the bottom, the packaging gets dirty very easily.
I think the label on the bottom quite accurately shows the colour of the lipstick, although the actual swatch is more coral I think than orange.

So as you can see my natural lips are a fairly pink colour, and with the lipstick on they are definitely a coral orange. The colour as described on the Topshop website is orange-red, which I think you can see. However maybe the lipstick against my lips is more coral than red because of my natural colour?
I'm not sure. Whatever it is, I do think Infrared is a gorgeous colour which is going to become one of my HG products! Especially in the summer ^.^
Can anybody with a similar issue please suggest anything?
These are the other two lipsticks I own!

Would anybody like me to review these two?
What are your experiences with Topshop lipsticks, either good or bad? :)
Thank you for reading!
