For the most part of my 23 years I have been utterly discombobulated (oh hell yeah) with lip products. I knew I didn't really like the gloopies, and that the whole Creme Cup look is odd on me. But after a few months of experimentation and some quite memorable make-up faux pas I found my safe ground amongst the reds and corals. Recently there's been a bit of a game changer to my usual lip larder, Topshop's Lip Cream in Double Take. The ignition to my purple lip obsession- I flaming love it!
This product ticks so many boxes for me. Firstly it smells mucho delicioso, the strong scent of vanilla cupcakes hits you as soon as you open the applicator and has you literally turning to the person next to you saying, "Phwoar, have a whiff of that!" Its just so yummy.
Once you manage to tear the wand from under your nostrils the application is simples. The doe foot applicator allows the product to glide on easily, for a one, max two stroke application which leaves a nice opaque purple on your pout.
As for the texture is as it says, a nice thick cream which injects a nice amount of moisture when applied, none of that dreaded stickiness or gloop. Just happy little lippies. As it is a cream it doesn't grip to your lips so I would recommend using a lip liner beforehand and maybe even a quick powder after for some extra staying power. Lastly as gorge as it is, this baby can be very transferable when still wet so be sure to give your teeth a gook licking before heading out.
For me the colour is perfect and truly unique to anything on the shelves of Boots or Superdrug. A happy purple not at all vampy just cute, pretty and damn sexy with a smokey bronze eye. I love that there isn't a glint of shimmer in sight. Just a gorgeous, bright block of 'Topshop girl' colour.
Are you a Purple Pout fan? Any recommendations for my new obsession?
