Topshop Rio Rio Lipstick

So the excitement of Christmas and New Year is officially behind us and since then we have had nothing but cold drastic weather with the snow and I know loads of us have been suffering from colds which has made us all feel a little bit rubbish. However the last few days the sun has been out and the weather has been a bit milder, which I am hoping only means one thing, Spring is well and truly on it's way. I am so ready for the change of Seasons now and with the change of Seasons always comes a change of look - The perfect excuse to buy more beauty products if you ask me. As much as I've been loving the deep rich berry colours on our lips over the Winter, I feel so ready for a change now and I'm over the moon that orange is going to be a big colour for this Spring. What better way to start this repeating trend off with adding a pop of orange on to our lips! 

Over the last few days I have completely rekindled my love with Topshop's Rio-Rio lipstick.  Now you may look at this and think its more on the red shade, and I would agree and say it's more on the red side, but has the most beautiful orange undertones to it, which makes it the perfect in-between shade.Perfect for those beauties who want a bold lip, but not a go fully out there with a drastic red lip, and perfect for those who want to try orange, but are like me and not brave enough to wear full orange lip. I know how popular orange lipstick has been in the past, especially around the blogosphere with Topshop's Infrared being a firm favourite. But if I am being honest, I've always found the thought of wearing a true orange on my lips a little daunting, so Rio Rio is the perfect shade to go for, especially if your wanting to jump on the orange trend. Rio Rio is a matte lipstick, which is extremely pigmented and really makes your lips stand out, not to mention that it has a lovely creamy formula. There is always that little worry we have with matte lipsticks and the fear that they might be too drying, but I've found Rio Rio a dream to apply and it lasts on the lips for hours, fading only to leave lovely stained lips. There is something special about the formula of this lipstick as I find that bleeding or smudging rarely occurs and there have been plenty of times I've worn it without pairing it with a red lip liner. In the pictures I have used Barry M's red lip liner, just to define my lips a bit more, but you really don't need it. 

I know that this is soon going to be my go-to lipstick again and I can see me wearing this all the way till Summer as you will find that it looks amazing when you have a tan! There is something that get's me all excited about Rio Rio and I am loving the new change on my lips. If your wanting to pick this up you can find it on the Topshop website here, it retails for £8.00 and is worth every penny... I love it!

Have you changed your lippie for Spring ladies? I would love to know what your go to shade is going be.

Lot's of Love
