*The Hot Shop lipstick in shade no. 12

17. junij 2015


Hello my lovelies! Today I have a new lipstick to share with you - The Hot Shop Velvet Finish Moisturizing lipstick from BornPrettyStore. I was offered to pick out two products from their entire store and ended up choosing this beauty along with a blush, which I'll be reviewing in a separate post.






The lipstick is an obvious imitation/copy of the iconic Top Shop lipsticks but I don't really mind that as long as the product itself doesn't disappoint... and I'm happy to say it did not! :) 

The bullet itself looks beautiful and feels really nice in your hand - it has a bit of weight to it, almost like it's made out of metal rather than plastic (aluminum perhaps?). The lid shuts very securely and the whole thing is just really well made.

The formula is super pigmented and has quite a bit of shine to it but I wouldn't necessarily call it glossy. It feels really moisturizing on the lips and applies like a dream without clinging to dry patches or accentuating fine lines. Because it is a very creamy, moisturizing lipstick it doesn't last as long but it doesn't just fade away either - you are left with a bit of color on your lips even after eating and drinking.

The shade I chose (no.12) is a dark pink or you could call it a dusty rose. I feel like it really compliments my rosy-toned complexion. It's a very easy color for me to wear - not nude but not 'in your face' either. :)





You can get this shade or any other out of the 15 (!) they offer on their site for a full price of $7.64, but it's currently on sale for $4.29 (*when choosing a shade I'd recommend taking a look at customer images rather than the swatches).

Don't forget to take a look at other products they carry and you're welcome to use my 10% off code - MHH10.

    1. Nope... zato sem jaz gledala ocene po netu in pa tam med slikami blogerk/kupcev, da sem se odločila za odtenek. :D

  2. Zelo lep odtenek :) Mi je pa smešno ker je ime in embalaža res očitna kopija Top Shop šmink x)

    1. A ne? Čudno, da si to lahko dovolijo... ampak so pa zelo dobre tele šminke (vsaj sodeč po tej, ki jo imam jaz), pa še Topshop nam ni dosegljiv, tako da... :D

  3. Lep naraven odtenek:) Ta formula je res odlična, sploh zame:). Zanimivo, da smo kar tri izbrale te šminke :D Jaz bi še kakšen odtenek naročila.

    1. Formula je res super - sem jo ravno danes nanesla čez dokaj uboge ustnice, pa se ni nič videlo suhe kože. :D Drugače pa ja, zanimivo kako smo izbirale šminke - dobro da vsaka drug odtenek, če ne bi bilo še smešno. :)
