Of the four Topshop lip products I own, this is probably my favourite. I recently reviewed two Lips shades, Brighton Rock and Macaroon, which you can read about here. Topshop Secret Party is a deep hot pink shade that is certainly not for the faint hearted! It's quite different from its counterparts in the more traditional lipstick bullet so let's talk about why!
First of all, my two main complaints with the Lips lipsticks is that they are not very long wearing and they are very drying. Due to the nature of the shade, Secret Party lasts a long time as it actually stains the lips a little. You can get a good few hours wear out of it. While I wouldn't describe it as moisturising, it's not drying and it can be worn comfortably on the lips for a few hours.
In the pencil, it does look quite alarming as there appears to be flecks of gold shimmer in it. Thankfully, these are not as apparent once you are actually wearing the product, and I love that it has a bit of shine. I used to be a matte obsessive when it came to lip products, but now I'm definitely leaning more towards shades like this.
For the price point which I believe is about £7, this products is great. My only issues with it are its pencil format which means I have to sharpen it and ultimately waste a little product and the fact that the colour bleeds a little. However, I've been experimenting with lip liners and such recently and have realised this solves that problem!
