Topshop Lipstick | Fire Cracker

The Topshop make up range is not one I’ve explored in any great detail. Why? I don’t know, because I ruddy love their lipsticks. I don’t know what it is with lipsticks and my lips, but they just won’t stay put. All my MAC ones slide off within a matter of minutes (okay that’s a slight exaggeration, maybe a bit longer), but I only have a select few lippies that I always turn to for their longevity on the lips and Topshop is one of them.
Infrared is one of my ultimate faves so when I spotted ‘Fire Cracker’ it was an immediate must have. I love the brightness and the velvet finish it leaves. I only needed to apply one sweep of this for full coverage and a super bright pigmentation.


One of the many things I love about the Topshop make up range is the packaging. Yes it's plain and simple, but that's me all over and I think it is so cute!! I haven't got much to go on, only owning one other lippy by them but you'd assume being a cream packaging it would get really grubby, I haven't found that at all (and it's not sitting pristine on a shelf, it's shoved in with all my makeup in a big box). These retail for £8 each, which is probably just above average for a high street makeup brand, but c'mon it's Topshop, what do we expect ;). And honestly, I don't mind paying this price tag, nope not one bit. The quality is definitely up there with the higher end brands such as NARS; which I think is saying something.
Being a matte velvet finish I was concerned that it would be drying on my lips, but it's surprisingly moisturising. Obviously, everyone is different so there's the possibility that the formulation may not work for you, but I am in love!



Orange is definitely proving to be my favourite lipstick colour, and this shade, for me is perfection. It's not as 'in your face' as a red, but it's bold enough to say 'hello, yes, I am wearing a statement lipstick and loving it' kind of thing, y'know? Perfect for summer and it will definitely be travelling along with me to Italy on Saturday! *dances round in a circle whilst chanting HOLIDAY at the top of my lungs* I am ridiculously excited.

I'm completely impressed with this lippy and it's encouraged me to dabble in a bit more of their make-up range. So if you have any products you'd recommend, be sure to let me know!

What do you think? Are you a fan of Orange or Topshop Lipsticks for that matter?

This looks lovely on you :) I'm not a huge lipstick fan but I do have two from Topshop and I really like them :) This looks very similar to Topshop's Infrared actually!

WonderfulYou said...

Thank you lovely! It is quite similar, but definitely brighter and a heavier shade of orange. Slightly more daring I'd say :) x

It's such a pretty colour, it really suits your skin tone.

Gorgeous! I LOVE orange lips and I've had my eye on this! Sadly not actually bought any Topshop make up yet, not sure what's put me off! xx

WonderfulYou said...

I was a bit put off to tbf, I thought their clothes had gone WAY down in quality and the prices didn't reflect that, so I didn't really want to give them a try incase I was disappointed. But they're definitely worth it, and this shade in particular is gorgeous!xx

Lara said...

Never tried Topshop lipsticks before. Honestly i always just assumed that it would be bad quality.. Maybe i should reconsider it, because this lipstick looks so gorgeous! Never knew orange lipstick could be so pretty! So jealous that you're going to Italy this Saturday, have fun and don't it too much pizzas. Haha x

WonderfulYou said...

I thought the same Lara, but I was pleasantly surprised :) xx

Kaz said...

I have the bright pink 'brighton rock' topshop lippie... the colours are incredible and definitely manage to stay put! Mine doesn't look anywhere near pristine these days though... my make up bag is a dangerous place for a cream coloured design!

Annabel said...

Ah, I'm always SO tempted by topshop lipsticks, they're gorgeous. I would love to have the confidence to wear them but I gotta say lipstick scares the crap outta me!
one day though ;)

Have a b-e-a-uuuutiful time in Italy!

WonderfulYou said...

Ooh Kaz, I just purchased Brighton Rock! Yay! Ahhh, man. Never mind..I'm sure they'll scrub up well ;) xx

WonderfulYou said...

Annabel, I used to be exactly the same, lipstick petrified me. But then I just whipped some on and realised how much it can enhance your features!

Thank you so much, I'm really excited :) xx

KayleighLouise said...

Ooh I love this! I currently have 6 topshop lipsticks and love them all!! I totally agree about them being moisturizing but unlike yours mine are completely grubby haha!! Maybe I'm just a messy pup!! Xx.

WonderfulYou said...

It's lovely isn't it! Ummm, I do do youtube vids, but I don't know about guru, haha! xx

WonderfulYou said...

Ooh I haven't seen Innocent, I'll have a looksie :) xx

Katrina said...

I have two Topshop lipsticks (one of them being Infrared) and I am so impressed at their quality! They are definitely on par with MAC, I think which makes sense since I was told MAC actually make the Topshop lipsticks.

This colour looks great on you by the way! xx

Kim said...

That's a beautiful colour lipstick. I've only ever tried their blushers, may have to invest in a lippie or two now xx

WonderfulYou said...

Charlie you'd look amazing with orange lippy!xx

WonderfulYou said...

Oh how exciting! I definitely will xx

WonderfulYou said...

Oh really? I didn't know that! To be fair, I think they're a better quality in some ways! Thank you lovey :) xx

WonderfulYou said...

Awh that's lovely thank you so much! Trying to get to grips with my new camera, getting there slowly!xx

WonderfulYou said...

I'd quite like to try their blushers :) do you have one in particular you'd recommend?xx

Thank you lovely. Is your name Bree? That's AMAZING. Jealous xxx

Melanie Jane said...

I'm a huge fan of orange lip shades, and also a lover of Infrared, so this shade definitely looks like my cup of tea. I'm glad you say it's not drying through, as I did find Infrared to be. No lipsticks stay on my lips for five minutes, not even these! The Revlon Balm Stains are quite long-wearing on me though, so I am really enjoying using Rendezvous (an orange shade, of course!)
Hope you're enjoying your weekend :)

Topshop lipsticks are amazing me lately. The shades are like no otheres I've seen before and the colours always stay on for hours. And this is no exception. Goregous shade and it looks FABULOUS on you and with your skin tone! Take it to Italy and stun everyone. I shall remain in England. Very jealous.

I LOVE topshop lipsticks, im more of a neautral fan though. You should try Ooh la la, it has red undertones but is still quite rosy, very pretty :)
