My first thoughts when trying on this lipstick (as soon as I got it home) were “my, doesn’t this look like NARS Bolero Velvet Matte Lip Pencil” (review here
) which a lot of people say looks like Topshops Coy
. I would say that Whimsical is more nude, a much more played down version of Bolero and Coy – for all those who were wondering.
This lip product has been on the endless gh0stparties wishlist for yonks now and I finally picked it up yesterday when the Topshop sale didn’t leave me wheelbarrowing clothing to the till.
I’m not your biggest matte lipstick fan, actually let me rephrase that; I want to be the biggest matte lipstick fan but when your lips are as dry as mine, it’s just not on the cards, baby.
I think this sort of shade is the perfect colour for my skin tone, it goes with the blushers I usually wear (Benefits Hervana today if you’re wondering) and makes my blue eyes pop against my fair skintone.
I think most skin tones could pull this off actually, it would look equally as beautiful against tanned and dark skins in my opinion.
I don’t find the formula too drying, but my lips need to be having a good day in order to pull this off (read: lots of maintenance beforehand) and for eight British Sterling you can’t really turn it down.
What do you think of Whimsical?
