Today I have another lipstick review for you all. I bought Whimsical from Topshop way back in September, so a long time ago now. It was my first Topshop lipstick purchase and it was a toss-up between three in the store. I’m not sure why I chose this one, I really liked it in the shop but when I got it home and looked at it in the harsh light of day I wasn’t so sure.
The colour itself is a peachy / coral nude and the formula is thick and creamy. I love the colour, I think it’s great for everyday wear and also stays put all day. I put it on before lunch one day and after a very large and delicious meal someone complimented me on my lipstick, I was shocked to see it still in place. Another positive is the adorable packaging, well done Topshop.
I have a bit of a love hate relationship with is because as you can see from the picture it can be a bit drying. The finish is matte and unless my lips are in particularly good condition I can’t wear it without them looking dry. I also find that it has to be paired with the right blusher to pull it off. Hopefully as we get into summer when my lips are soft and my face has a bit more colour Whimsical will suit me again. For now I just have to make sure my lips are in tiptop condition and slap on a bit of bronzer or nice blusher if I want to wear this lipstick.
When I've taken my time over my makeup and my lips are lovely and smooth it’s one of my favourite lipsticks and I love wearing it. You can get this from Topshop stores or online for £8 which is great value for money.
What do all think of the lipstick?
Lots of Love
