Topshop Secret Admirer Lipstick





Topshop Lipstick in Secret Admirer: £8

Another member of the Topshop lip family that has been in my collection for a good while but I never got around to talking about. Secret Admirer caught my eye due to its 'warm nude' description and general peachy pink appearance in the bullet. Upon application though, for some reason this lipstick ends up looking more like a blue based pink instead of the warm tone you'd expect. It's still nice, just a little disappointing when a product isn't quite true to colour. I don't know if it's because my lips are quite pigmented, not that I think that would make the product less warm toned?! Weird! For best results it's good to prep your lips to ensure they're smooth, but Secret Admirer is creamy enough to not cling to any dry patches and leaves a healthy sheen so it's not all so bad. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong..?

Are you a not so secret admirer of this lipstick? Let me know your favourite shade from the range if you have one!

  4. Before I even read the text I thought that it looked different on your lips from how it did in the bullet! I've never used a Topshop lipstick but after reading so many rave reviews on them I'd really like to try them.

  5. I love this! It's a little annoying when they don't turn out the colour you think though! MAC Coral Bliss is a prime example of that for me! Xx

  7. Love this! I love Topshop lipstick - I've been using Hazard which is quite a bright red so is quite dressy!

  13. I have this lipstick and I had the exact same problem. Perhaps also because my lips are quite pigmented, but it didn't look 'warm' at all on my lips and was fairly disappointing!

  21. I'm glad I read this before buying it because, like you, I thought it was a warmer toned nude not a blue based pink! Think I'll give it a miss but it does look pretty on you :) xx

  34. I've never tried and Topshop lippies before but I have my eyes set on Oh La La and Whimsical. Secret Admirer looks lovely on you but it'll be far too pale for me.
