Dark Red/Plum Lips - Topshop & Maybelline.

(before I start I just wanna say this lip combo in real life is actually a lot darker, silly camera!)

(just the lipliner)

(Sorry for the up close & personal pictures, i'm conscious of my wonky lips so shhh!)



For a while now I've been obsessed with dark red/plum lips (who hasn't?!) so I thought i'd share with you in particular two products i've been pairing up and wearing a hell of a lot recently! It might be because I'm so pale and it's such a contrast and instantly dramatic or maybe because if you pick the right one it makes your teeth look lovely and pearly white, either way I can't get enough.

From what i've tried, like most beauty bloggers, I really love the Topshop make up range. Especially their lipsticks and nail polishes! I find this lipstick to be very moisturising and easy to wear and absolutely adore it paired with this lipliner, which is also lovely by it's self but for me a little too drying. This is 9 times out of 10 my go to lip combination, especially when I've been lazy doing my eye make up. It's dramatic yet wearable and I feel like it makes me look a lot more put together with minimal effort, which is always a winner in my books.

What are some of your favourite lip combinations?


Thanks for reading.

  1. Such a gorgeous colour! I just bought a topshop lipstick but I didn't realise how pale pink it was so it barely shows up on my lips :(

    I had the same problem, cameras always make things look brighter! My mac hang up is a dark purple and the camera makes it look pink/red, when it's not :( Oh well haha.

    Eyelashes generally annoy me a lot, but since using tweezers I find it so much easier :) xxx

      Doesn't it! Or it's too dark and you can't see it properly. Silly technology!

      Yeah they annoy me when they are on though, makes my eyelids have and i get tired haha.xx

  2. That's a beautiful colour! I'm really loving dark plum shades too, especially '107' from Kate Moss for Rimmel's range.

  6. That lipstick is gorgeous. It looks like a dupe for the MAC (names gone out of my head and that is really helpful lol) I find Topshop lipsticks have such good staying power! :) Gorgeous! x
