If you have been following my blog for awhile you will know how obsessed with lip products I am! My collection of lipsticks is a bit ridiculous and for A/W I have been obsessed with finding a really dark berry/wine colour, when last weekend I found not one but two! I love each of them so much and haven't really taken them off since. I considered doing a joint post to show how they differ but they are both SO amazing in their own right they deserve their own post.
First up is this lip cream from Topshop called Smart. I was really intrigued by this as the colour is incredible yet it has a lip gloss applicator and I wasn't sure how easily it would go on and how much depth the colour would actually have. As you may have guessed by now I was pleasantly surprised. The colour goes on completely opaque and can be built up depending on how deep you want the colour to be, on the picture above I have just two coats which creates a perfect wine colour. It is trickier than a lipstick to get the perfect shape of your lips with this applicator and because it is quite 'liquidy' (my new made up word!) However it isn't hard enough to put me off, with a little practice it gets a lot easier. Topping up is also a breeze after the initial application as you already have the shape. It is incredibly moisturising and has very good lasting power.
If you hadn't figure out by now I AM IN LOVE with this lip cream, just putting it out there. I am incredibly tempted to add the other two colours to my collection. Have you tried any of the lip creams? Are you liking this colour for A/W? My other wine colour lipstick will follow so let me know if you are looking forward to seeing that!
