Lip Lust: Topshop Crystal Lip Tint


It was love at first sight when I clapped eyes on this Lip Tint from Topshop's new 'Sisters of the New Moon' collection last week.
It's clear-neon pink with chunky silver glitter, appropriately named 'Crystal'… undeniably immature, it looks kind of like something you'd have when you were 10, but I think it's so much fun!

Once I got over the initial 'wow' factor and actually tried the product, I was really impressed. It's more of a balm than a lipstick and the glitter doesn't transfer at all onto the lips. It's one of those 'adapt to your lips' products (think Smashbox O Glow) but slightly more neon.

I've only ever tried this type of product as a gloss before and I have to say I much prefer it in lipstick form. It feels like a smooth, norishing balm without being sticky or glossy, and leaves a lovely rosy pink tint to the lips.

This is by far the most fun lipstick I own, it's such a shame it's limited edition! As per usual, Topshop have hit the nail on the head with the packaging too… I adore the whimsical design of this collection for spring and summer. I got a few other bits and peices from the line that I'm really excited to share with you all, so watch this space!

'Crystal' is available now in Topshop stores and online, priced at £9.


*Addition* To everyone mentioning to L'Oreal Lip Glow... I have both and yes, they are similar but personally I much prefer the packaging and consistency of this (and is had glitter - always a bonus!)
