Review: Topshop Lipstick in Innocent

After reading many a review raving about the Topshop lipsticks I was really excited when I finally bought one and must admit, I was expecting it to be amazing. I think I’m probably about the only person in the world who doesn’t really like these! I love the colour and the pigmentation is good although the texture picks up every flaw on your lips so exfoliating before hand and a good base is a must but I really cannot stand the smell!

The scent is quite difficult to describe, I want to say it smells citrusy but not a nice zingy citrus, I’m talking bathroom cleaner citrus which really does not float my boat in the slightest! I only own one topshop lipstick so I’m not sure if the scents differ at all (if you have a different shade to compare, let me know if they smell the same please!) so this put a real downer on this product.

The actual colour is a pretty baby pink and is called Innocent which fits it perfectly I think.  It’s such a pretty girly girl shade.

The packaging is lovely, the casing is made of metal so is very sturdy and the design is so nice and unique, right up my street in that department. I’m so disappointed with the smell of this and I’m not even sure I can disguise it buy putting a scented gloss over the top.

These retail at about £8 which is pretty average for a lipstick and if it weren’t for the smell I would definitely re purchase because the formula is quite nice but I don’t really enjoy my lips smelling like Mr Muscle.Sorry Topshop, maybe it’s just me?

What do you think of Topshop Lipsticks? Do you think they live up to the hype?

    This was the first shade I bought as well and I love it, I think the texture was great (other shades I found out pick up more flaws than this one tbf!) and the smell seemed more sweet to me! Might be some odd one? I keep sniffin it in here now and cant smell any citrus, and Im really trying haha..:D Lovely review!! xxx

    Other reviews compare the smell to MAC so I really wasn't expecting mine to smell like it does! I think perhaps I got an off one, if that's possible!? Haha! I love the colour though, it's so pretty but the smell…urgh! Think I might buy another shade just in case mines just a one off because other than the smell i like it! Thanks for reading! xx

    This is such a pretty shade. I'm going to have to get my hands on it! I think the scent may just be you haha, I'm sat here smelling the lipsticks I have from the Topshop and they have barely any scent..x

    Thanks for your review, really insightful. I think I will be smelling any Topshop lipsticks I pick up form now on, definitely don't want one that smells like the Mr Muscle scent you have with yours x
