Topshop Coy lipstick £7
Despite owning a plethora of Topshop's conventional lipsticks, this recent purchase is my first venture into their lip-crayon-type territory. Coy is a milky yet bright pinky-coral lip colour with a very matte finish and amazing pigmentation. I was instantly drawn to this lively pastel shade and knew it would sit neatly amongst all my other pink and peach toned lipsticks...of which there are a fair few! The texture and consistency of Coy is definitely more like a lip pencil rather than a lipstick and it doesn't have that smooth, glossy application you get with the normal Topshop lipsticks. Without a quick slick of balm on your lips, the application of this lip crayon is pretty horrid. It feels dry, unforgiving and will magnify any dry or chapped skin to the nth degree. However with some well-prepped lips it will smooth on like a dream and give you a vibrant peachy-pink pop to your lips which I think is lovely as we slowly approach Springtime makeup.
Have you tried any of the Topshop lip crayons? Are they all as dry and tricky to apply?
