I do love a freebie so I was super duper happy to receive a free lip cream with my Topshop order a few weeks back. I was sent Pout which is a very, very bright orange shade. It's a sort of liquid lipstick/lipgloss mix that dries into a velvety cream finish. It is intensely pigmented, when I previous said that this was bright orange I really meant it. It's insane how bright this colour is and because of this it just doesn't suit me at all.
I have tried to wear it out, tried to make it less...bright, but I just can't get it to work. I did find however that the colour was extremely long-lasting and didn't budge all day, which is fantastic for what is essentially a lipgloss. It isn't sticky at all on the lips and I'm sure it would look gorgeous on someone who isn't me.
I adore Topshop's makeup range and I'm not going to let the colour of this lip cream put me off, just because it isn't the right shade for me doesn't mean I won't be able to find one that is! I love the feel of this on my lips so I will definitely be investing in some other colours. If you like this lip cream, it's only £7 either in stores or on Topshop's website.
