REVIEW // Topshop Lipstick Shade Rio Rio

When I was in London, I decided to finally treat myself to a couple of bits other than a meal out. So when we hit the massive Topshop in Oxford Street, I just couldn't help myself! I got a pair of awesome new sunglasses as my current ones are wonky and have been since I bought them from New Look last year. I decided it was time for a new, less embarrassing pair of sunnies which was a wise purchase as how amazing is this sun recently?! I'm writing this post very red and burnt and hopefully soon to be brown!

I also having been wanting a Topshop Lipstick since forever and have never been able to justify splashing out on a £8 lipstick (that's what unemployed student life does to you!). But I am now so glad I did, I got Lips in shade Rio Rio, something a little more daring to add to my lipstick collection, and I was getting a bit bored of my favourite Estée Lauder shade.


The Lips in Rio Rio is such a cute and adorable colour, especially when teamed with pink rosey cheeks and hair up in a little bun - which is how I have been styling it. Since I bought it I have worn it every day, it lasts all day you only have to apply it once and then you're set for a good couple of hours. I love the feel of the matte finish of this lipstick and how it doesn't come off that easily, which is always ideal when you have a boyfriend who is avoids a kiss when you have lipstick on!

Overall I really recommend this lipstick especially in this shade, I'm really hard to find good lipstick colour as not much really suits me (especially black and purple...) so I've found that as Rio Rio isn't too much of a deep red for me and it goes with basically everything. Who doesn't love a red lip?! Now I just want to buy the whole Topshop Lips collection, regardless if they don't all suit me.
