The Lipstick Review: Brighton Rock by Topshop

Topshop Lipstick – Brighton Rock

Let’s just start this off by saying: I’m not a pink lover. It’s probably just down to my skin tone and hair colour, but whether it’s an item of clothing or makeup I just can’t seem to make it work. But apparently miracles do happen, and after Ruby kicked off my series of Saturday guest posts by mentioning her favourite products – with Topshops Brighton Rock lipstick included – I was a woman possessed. After swatching a fair few of the brightest pinks I went back for the one that sparked the hunt in the first place.

Topshops Brighton Rock is a gorgeous warm fushia pink. Its super pigmented and nice and creamy – none of these matte finishes which are really unwearable. I find the warmer tones in the pink not only suit my skin tone really well, but make it the lipstick look slightly more natural as it wears away. It’s a nice alternative to to a bold red lip as it’s not so sticking, but still adds something to an outfit… what ever that something is…

    I really like fuchsia shades at the moment, and I think I will love this one. I'm definitely going to keep an eye out for it next time I am at a larger Topshop

    Love the colour! I love lipsticks but find whenever i wear them they just cling to my dry patches despite scrubs/balms 🙁
    So tempted my the top shop ones though.

    I love this colour on you. I really cant pull off a bold lip. It really annoys me as there are so many beautiful colours available

    The colour is gorgeous and you can definitely pull bright lipstick off – I wish I could but it's definitely a losing battle!!
