Topshop Lip Bullet in Joyride - Reviewed!

Over the past year or so i've been moving away from the safe nude lips and going for something a bit bolder. The one i've still not mastered is the red lip. A red lip is such a classic look but for a longer time i've just not felt brave enough. Whilst browsing the Oxford Street Topshop I swatched this beauty and decided to bring it home with me, it is safe to say i've been wearing it ever since.

The packaging is very similar to the other lip crayons available at the moment, the only downside is i've found the white 'bullet' picks up dirt and finger prints easily, especially if you get product on it when applying which is hard to avoid sometimes.

The formula of these Lip Bullet's is very pigmented and creamy. They're a lot more pigmented than other balm stains and the darker colours can bleed a little if you're not careful. I've been enjoying wearing this by smudging the edges with my finger, almost in spirit of the blurred lines trend at the moment.

The shade Joyride is a lovely bright cherry red which looks just as good applied sheerly or in full pigment. It feels very moisturising on the lips and the colour wears evenly. The wear time isn't as good as other balm stains, after a few hours you may need to top it up however it does leave a slight stain to the lips.

All in all i've become a little obsessed with this beauty and it has definitely helped to make me more confident with wearing a red lip. I really want to check out the other shades available since i've loved this one so much.

Topshop Lip Bullet retails for £8.00.

Have you tried these new Lip Bullet's? What is your favourite red lip product?

    1. Try something sheer first, this is perfect because it looks great sheer or worn bold :)
