Topshop Rio Rio Lipstick | Review

 
If you read my previous post Drugstore Makeup Haul, you would've seen how excited I was to try out my new Topshop lippy in the shade Rio Rio. I've finally had the chance to try it out and I wasn't disappointed!
 
 
 
Seriously though how beautiful is this lipstick?! I think I'm in love..
 
 
Topshop's range of makeup is just brilliant, isn't it? Its all such amazing quality, so I wasn't expecting to be disappointed by the Rio Rio lipstick. Firstly, lets discuss the packaging, oh my its just so effing beautiful, the colours, the box, all of which make the lipstick look so expensive. I adore the rose gold detailing, and the colour, oh my goodness the colour. On a quick first glace I would say its a bright red, but when applying and looking closely I would say it's more of an orange toned red, which for me is perfect, I'm not quite brave enough to wear a bright orange lipstick, so this is the perfect in between! I'm very much so your red lip kinda gal!
 
Upon purchasing it, I was a little worried that because it's matte, it would be super drying, however I couldn't have been more wrong - It has a super creamy formula and feels very soft when applying it, I'm not sure why but I much prefer matte lipsticks to glossy, I find they look more flattering on me, and in my little head something makes me think they're less likely to smudge? No idea why haha!
When I wear it, I very rarely pair it with a lip liner, purely because you really don't need to, it doesn't smudge or bleed, I only ever really wear lip liner with it if I'm going out and I want it to look more defined, or last that little bit longer. Although, the staying power in general is brill, it stays put for hours, and even when it does eventually begin fading it looks as if you're wearing a lip stain, it's still very pretty.

Overall, I'm really impressed, with the lipstick, and Topshop's makeup range In general, for the price, £8.00, you're getting great value for money, and I would highly recommend trying it for yourself!
You can find Topshop's Rio Rio lipstick here.

  4. I've only ever bought one lipstick from Topshop, I think it was called Whimsical, it was a pinkish, nude shade. I loved the colour, but it chapped my lips and was very drying, making them look super cracked. Idk if it was just that specific lipstick, but from your review it seems like it was! I've been meaning to try another lipstick from Topshop, so I'll definitely check this one out!

    Lots of love,

    1. Oh no! :( that happens to me sometimes, I've had a problem with one of my kate moss lipsticks before, (the matte ones) I found it was really drying but for everyone else it was fine! Very strange, don't be put off though! This one is amazing xo

  6. This lipstick looks so pigmented, and I love the packaging! I haven't tried anything from Toyshop's make-up range, although I'm always looking at it when I go in store - need recommendations.

    1. So pretty isn't it, I'm exactly the same, I've only ever tried 1 other topshop lipstick so going to the shop and seeing them all was a bit daunting! But they're all such brilliant quality, so I went with what I thought would suit me best xo

  8. Ahh, I've not tried any Topshop beauty. Being a plus-size gal, I don't really go in store and rarely look on their website. I've been eyeing some of the range up on Feel Unique though, I'm dying to try it out.
