Hello everyone,
I hope you all had a smashing weekend?
Mine was wonderful, the first weekend in ages where I haven't woken up with a filthy hangover. It was amazing (and a little bizarre) to wake up as fresh as a daisy. It meant that we were able to do lots of fun things, canoeing and bike riding, but I'll save that for a later post, I have lots of cute photos to show you.

Today I want to show you a lipstick I've had for about a month now, I bought it for my holiday, I just haven't got around to blogging about it. Tease by Topshop (£8)
Tease is described as a ‘Barbie pink’, but I would definitely say that it has undertones of lilac in it too, which is really pretty. It has a velvet formula, with a matt finish. I did find this a rather drying, even when I used Carmex before application. Maybe because it is a matt finish? I don’t know about you but I tend to find Matt lipsticks much more drying and uncomfortable. I also found it quite hard to build up the colour with this shade, I had to smudge the color in with my fingertips and then keep applying more.
Honestly, I love the colour was a little disappointed with this lipstick, but I guess that it’s always a gamble when you’re trying something new hey?

Have you tried any of the Topshop Lipstick range?


  1. I love love LOVE this color, but it's such a shame that it's so hard to work with/super drying.
