Gotta Try It: TOPSHOP Lip Stick

With all the convoluted names of beauty products we see these days- you gotta appreciate one that is as literal as this from TOPSHOP. Lip Stick. A wooden stick, filled with amazingly emollient (in the best way possible) color for your lips. This is the first product I have tried from the brand's new makeup line, and based on how great it is, it certainly won't be the last. And at $14 a pop, it is pretty much half the price of department store brands that don't deliver nearly as well.

Flame is my color of choice- but it doesn't seem to be on their website now. Runner up though is Rosa. When you are going with a formula like this- rich and dramatic- go big or go home. If you are looking for a pale pink or nude- reach elsewhere.
