Topshop Secretary Lipstick // Review

24 May 2015


Hello everyone. Firstly I'd just like to apoligise for not posting in over two months! While I know there's no real excuse for not posting, I've currently been focusing on exams and growing my youtube. Anyway, I'm finally back and hoping to post at least once a week now! So to kick start this new blogging season I thought I'd do a review.

So I recently did an online shop on Feel Unique, one of my favourite shops online for buying makeup, and one of the things I picked up was a TopShop lipstick in the shade Secretary. 
I've never actually tried one of the Topshop lipsticks before but I had high hopes because I'd heard really good reviews, and also that they are apparently owned by Mac so are a similar quality to the Mac lipsticks but half the price. 


I chose the shade Secretary, which is a really pretty nude. As I wanted to choose a colour I'd wear often to get my moneys worth, I thought it best to invest in a good nude as it will go with almost any makeup look and outfit and suit every season. 

Whilst I know it's much more about what's on the inside, I'm also in love with the packaging of Topshop. The simplistic black and white theme looks really sophisticated but I love the more personal touch of the almost handdrawn feel of the stripes and writing on the actual lipstick.



The lipstick has a really nice creamy formula that is really nice to apply to your lips and doesn't stick to try patches of your lips. I do find though, when I first apply it, if I go to take a drink or eat it will smudge slightly, but that's understandable as the formula is much creamier than other lipsticks I have tried. I also find this lasts really well; I can apply it in the morning at it will last the majority of the day without the need for a touch up.

Overall, I'm really pleased with both the colour and formula of this lipstick and will definitely be considering buying some more of these to add to my makeup collection!


I hope you enjoyed this quick review, and I'll see you very soon with another post!

xoxo, Jess
