I've wanted an orange lipstick for ages now. After buying MAC 'Vegas Volt' in the summer, I've decided that I like orangey shades and have been on the hunt for the perfect one ever since. So many people in blog-land absolutely rave about this Topshop lipstick in 'Infared' that I felt I needed to buy it, especially after it seemed quite difficult to get a little while ago!
The colour is a gorgeous orangey-red. It's very pretty, although I was hoping it would be more orange-if that's possible! Perhaps MAC Morange would be a better bright orange?
This lipstick is lovely and very flattering. It's bright but in my opinion, a wearable bright. I'm hoping to wear this during the day a lot in summer! The consistency is glossy and moisturising which is good, and it's opaque, without being thick in any way once it's on. I'm not too keen on the smell, I think it smells like baby powder. You may love the smell on the other hand, but personally I don't, although it's not a particularly offensive scent so I don't mind it too much.
If you are looking for a lipstick to wear in summer that's going to look stunning on everyone, then this could be for you. Also, if you are looking for an orange which could also be perceived as red in some lights this could be for you. I love the colour but I'm still on the hunt for my perfect, bright, loud, in-yer-face orange! If anyone can recommend one to me then that would be perfect!
Have you tried Infared or any of the Topshop lipsticks? What do you think?
N.B After uploading the pictures, the colour does seem very orange, and perhaps a little more orange than in real life!
