topshop lip CRAYON in suspect: £7*

I've talked about these Topshop Lip Crayon's lots of times in the past, and some of my favourite lip colours include Topshop Coy and Topshop Hedonist. They are pigmented crayons that come in two finishes, matte and gloss. Topshop Suspect Lip Crayon is a brown toned purple matte lip crayon. I found it easy to apply, but you do have to be careful when running it along the lip lines. It's best to line the lips first and work inwards. I had to clean up with a cotton bud and it still looked a tad messy on application. Definitely not one to try attempting reapplying without a mirror. I actually quite like this shade. It definitely isn't my usual shade, and I don't particularly like dark berry shades on me. However with my eyes and my new blonder hair colour I think it works really well. It add's a touch of goth to a very simple eye look (even with my usual liner this felt a touch overdone, however my nude eyes &vamp lips would be perfect!) and perfect for the autumn months. The formula is a touch drying but nowhere near as powdery as some of the other Lip Crayons from Topshop.  It does have what I always refer to as "retro" matte finish, quite one dimensional without a hint of shine. This lasted about a hour or two on me before fading which was disappointing as it left me with very funny looking lips. It has it's pro's and cons, I love the colour and the depth and the finish is nice... but maybe a little TOO matte even for my tastes. None the less, this maybe this is a turning point for lipsticks for me... am I going over to the dark side?
What do you think?

  11. The dark side suits you! Do engage. It can be so nice having an almost bare looking face with a bold, dark lip colour.

    I haven't tried these crayons or Topshop makeup, but a crayon that doesn't last is quite disappointing. There are better alternatives that produce strong colour that lasts for hours, despite the formula being somewhat drying.

    I really like the packaging of the Topshop lip crayons so I will try them anyway.

  21. The colour really suits you! I like this review though cos you've given an honest opinion about how long it lasts etc. Still might try it, I've never had anything for the Topshop make up range!

  22. Lovely! This autumn I'm too for darker purple shades. Last week in Topshop I bought a lipstick in "called up" shade. It is creamy, but very similar in colour! :-D

  29. I love the colour, but the formula lets it down. I'll be trying to find an alternative to this formula as I love the shade too much!!

  34. I have this and I love it, it is very matte but I find that helps it last longer. I wear this with MAC's Diva on the top and it gives a great colour with a more comfortable texture! x

  38. I love the colour but retro matte lipsticks are never great on me as it seems my lips just dry out way too quickly. I'm really loving your blonde hair now, and that you're switching things up on both blogs and youtube channels!
