Hotshop Lipsticks

Some of my readers may remember that in November, I worked with BornPrettyStore to review the Me Now Generation 2 Matte Lipglosses. Since then, BornPrettyStore have been so kind as to send me some amazing products which I cannot wait to share with you over the next few weeks, beginning with these lipsticks!

The Hotshop Lipstick Review

As I'm sure many of you immediately noticed, the very pretty packaging of these lipsticks is an almost exact, and very cheeky rip-off of Topshop lipsticks, which are much loved in the blogging world! These 'Hotshop' lipsticks are half the cost of their Topshop counterparts (which are already very affordable!) at only £4.01. However, if you are hoping to find a dupe of a specific shade, you may not be in luck.The shade range of this lipstick is far more limited and, whilst the Topshop lipsticks have shade names, these copies are instead numbered. It is thus unclear which, if any, are exact dupes - whilst some shades may prove to be identical, the numbered system will make them difficult to identify as photographs alone can be deceptive.

Although I have yet to try a Topshop lipstick and thus can make no comparison to them, I am in love with the formula of these 'Hotshop' lipsticks and am dieing to buy more of the shades for myself. They apply like a dream and have a very smooth and long lasting formula with a satin finish, Despite having a very opaque and vivid colour, they also feel extremely lightweight - I have, at times, forgotten I was even wearing any! I have found these lip paints to be very moisturising and, unlike some lipsticks, do not become increasingly drying throughout the day.

The Hotshop Lipstick Review

The two shades which were provided to me for review are 08 and 12. Shade 08 is a perfect, classic pillarbox red and one which every woman should have in their collection. It is orange toned but this is far less pronounced that in the photograph, in which it looks deceptively orange. Shade 12, at risk of sounding like a blogger cliche, is 'your lips but better' and is the perfect pink-y nude shade. Another lipstick staple, it's the perfect everyday lip colour for a more natural makeup look.
