Topshop Coy lipstick


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?

    Beautiful colour, when I saw the lipstick I expected it to be less lighter then it looks like on your lips, but I absolutely love it!

    It's a gorgeous colour but I personally prefer their lipsticks x

    Love the colour! And could you do a post on your favourite skincare products? It always looks so flawless!

    Great post lovely, the colour looks really pretty on you and suits your skin tone perfectly. I've never purchased the lip crayon because of the way I thought they may apply. I'm a lipstick lover…just not in the crayon form!

    I haven't tried the crayons yet. Been far too worried that they were going to be very drying on. Love the colour though x

    I have this lip crayon and think the same about the application, I thought it was really drying and a bit disappointing, but I love the colour so much I'm going to do my best to work with it!

    Milly, this looks gorgeous on you, I can't seem to pull it off so well and find it a bit chalky!

    Are those your real eyelashes or lash extensions? They look beaut! x

    Such a nice colour, I haven't really used many lip crayons but there seems to be a lot around lately, can't wait to try more! Also I love your jumper, the colour is so flattering!

    The colour really suits you.
    I also love your jumper.
    I haven't actually tried any of the Top shop make, i must be the only one not to have tried it but I'm going to try it this year πŸ™‚

    I own this but have to admit, I applied it once and haven't used it since. It's just far too drying which is such a shame as it's such a beautiful colour! xx

    I have one of these pens/pencils and I've never been so disappointed in a product ever before! It's sooooo bad!

    Gorgeous shade but I don't think it'll work on my Asian skin tone.
