Review: Topshop "Screen Siren" Lipstick

If you read my New Year's Eve Makeup post you would have seen that I used the Topshop"Screen Siren" lipstick. It was my first experience of using a Topshop lipstick so I thought I'd review the product for you.

When I was planning my makeup for new years eve, I decided on a red lip and so the hunt began for a stunning red lipstick.

I'm a huge fan of the Topshop makeup range. I adore their brow pencils and their nail polishes are amazing. Their lipsticks hadn't been a product I'd tried before but when I set my eyes on the shade of their "Screen Siren" lipstick I knew it was what I was looking for.

"Screen Siren" is a stunning red shade with a little hint of pink in there. It's a slightly darker shade than your usual red lipstick and it applies darker than it first looks. As the name suggests, it's a very 'Hollywood' shade - a colour you'd expect stars such as Marylin Monroe to wear.

The formula of this lipstick is amazing. It has great pigmentation, it's not too drying and has a fantastic cream finish. This lipstick lasted all night to the point where I didn't actually need to reapply it at any point during the night, something I seem to spend most of my life doing when I'm wearing other lipsticks, so I found this very impressive.

At £8.00 each the Topshop lipsticks place towards the more expensive end of the drugstore/high street makeup scale, but in this case you really pay for the quality. I've heard quite a few bloggers say that the Topshop lipsticks are very similar to the MAC lipsticks, which are almost double the price so really when it all comes down to it the Topshop lipsticks are really worth the price you have to pay for them.

(This photo makes it look a lot lighter than it looks in reality but I thought I'd pop this in anyway)

The only negative aspect of this lipstick is how staining it is. You have to be so careful when applying it and taking it off because once even the smallest amount is on your face, it's a nightmare to remove.

Overall I've fallen madly in love with this lipstick and I can really see it becoming a firm staple in my lipstick collection. I honestly can't recommend it more if you're looking for a perfect 'hollywood' red lip.

You can find "Screen Siren" in Topshop stores or online here.

Next on my Topshop Lipstick wishlist are definitely "Nevada" and "Beatnik".
Which of the Topshop lipsticks is your personal favourite?


  1. I've been looking for the perfect Hollywood red shade and this looks perfect, I hate when you smudge a lipstick and it just won't come off, I'll just have to get my lip brush out for this one, they really are great quality definitely worth the price in my opinion x


    1. It is your perfect Hollywood shade! Definitely use a lip brush if you try it out though, because it makes the application so much easier and less messy x
