Topshop Lips Rio Rio*

Thursday, 16 January 2014

Ugh, I really haven't got the hang of this working full time + being a blogger business. I didn't quite realise how much time I spent on  my blog until I have no time left! Anyway, another makeup review today, and this time it's on one of the lipsticks by topshop.....Lips in Rio Rio*

I won this in a blog giveaway a while ago, over at ellaboobeauty and have loved wearing it ever since. This is my first topshop lipstick and I didn't have high hopes. I've bought my fair share of lipsticks over the past years week so have sussed out exactly what I want in a lippy... and I won't settle for anything less! This lipstick has not only made it into my collection but has seriously impressed me! I was always a bit sceptical about the topshop makeup range as...well... how good can a makeup range from a clothing brand be? Apparently the answer is better than you'd think!

The colour is a lovely orange-based red and has a perfectly matte finish without being drying on the lips.  It's a bold colour with great staying power. This formula is pretty stubborn and doesn't budge for hours meaning that it's really low-maintenance for a red lip. 

After I've discovered a new found love for the topshop lipsticks, (and in fact the whole makeup range!) I can't wait to try some more shades...any recommendations?


  1. This is such a gorgeous shade :) I wish I was brave enough to wear brighter shades like this! x


  2. I've always been a little bit unsure about Topshop make-up but now I really want to give one of their lipsticks a go. This shade is soooo lovely x

  3. Wow, that color is stunning! And it looks great on you. I think with all we do to keep our skin healthy we forget about how shaving affects it. A lot of dryness and irritation is a result of women not using quality blades or changing them often enough. But who can blame them--have you seen the prices for replacement blades? We're a shaving company called Dorco and we want to change all that. We wanted to put the word out to your readers living in the U.S. and Canada that our quality razors cost up to 70% less than leading brands. And you don't have to sacrifice quality to save that much. Read what others think about our products and our prices at With Dorco, you can afford to change your blades often, and that means happier, healthier skin. Thanks again for such a great post, and for hearing us out!

  4. beautiful shade, i love colours like this for spring/summer perfect with a bronzy eye and dewy skin :)

  5. This colour is beautiful! I'm really into the tomato based shades at the moment!
    Also struggling to balance full time work and a blog!

  6. I LOVE this lipstick, Topshop do some amazing shades!
