As always, as Topshop release a new lip product I jump all over it. Last week I went into Topshop and saw these recently launched Lip Bullets and decided to give them a whir. I gave them a swatch on the back of my hand and was suitably impressed enough to march over to the till and purchase two. I hadn't really read about these or even heard of them until after I bought them, but I'm a sucker for anything Topshop Makeup!

Covet is a pretty pink nude which is very flattering on my skin-tone and is a good nude for anyone with light olive toned skin as it's not too cool. Heartbeat is my favourite of the two as it's a really juicy apple red shade with hints of coral and gives a lovely pout. I don't often like red lips but this one has really stood out to me. There is also three other shades in the Lip Bullet collection which are Rockabilly (a dark red), Joyride (a true red) and There She Goes (a pearly light pink).

They are described as having a dewy finish which I agree with, very soft and sort of glossy on the lips compared to the formula of Topshop Lips or their Topshop Lipsticks. The colour is very buildable and you can apply lightly for a sheer wash of colour or build it up to create full coverage. They feel very light and nourishing on the lips and dont dry them out in the slightest. The wear is very balmy and soft.  While I do like the formula of these Topshop Lip Bullets I do feel that they are slightly too creamy and the lighter shade Covet, sinks a little into my lip lines and enhances dryness.

In all I like these but don't love them, The finish is a little too creamy for my personal taste as I do prefer matte lipsticks. However these are a nice addition to the Topshop Lip range and are a good medium between the satin finish of the lipsticks and the chalky matte-ness of the lip sticks. I like the twist up packaging as it cuts down product wastage and makes application effortless. At £8 they aren't the cheapest of high street products but these are worth a try!
