I think this is so cute and clever and definitely a must have for lovers of bright, interesting lip shades. Check out this sweet little lip duo – the Topshop Lip Ombre in Astound. I think it’s going to be a big hit.
Gorgeous isn’t it? It’s neat little compact that has a little mirror and 2 super soft cream to powder balms in two complimentary shades. The texture is quite unique for a lip product, creamy and smooth, yet softly powdery.
The top section houses the mirror and the darker shade…
… and the bottom section has the lighter shade that you use to create the accent, ombre finish.
I have the shade Astound which is a super vibrant pink combination that really lights up the complexion. It’s really punchy.

Hannah Murray, Topshop Beauty Consultant, suggests roughly applying the deeper shade with fingers and then pressing the second, lighter shades into the middle of the lips.
I love the effect and if you wanted something a little more precise, you could apply with a lip brush.
I absolutely love the formula which has a very velvety, matte finish that feels really comfortable and nourishing. You can play around with the balance of the shades and build up the depth of the darker shade and layer up the highlight for an even more striking effect.
