Topshop Lip Bullet in Covet

On a recent visit to a Topshop not so local from me, I found the make-up section that I often pass by whilst thinking: "Topshop do amazing clothes... How could they possibly make amazing make-up too?" Yet to find out I was wrong when I swatched and fell in love with a couple of things.

One of my buys was this Lip Bullet in the colour 'Covet', which is a peachy-nude toned lipstick, encased in this pen-like packaging. I love the colour, as it suits me quite nicely. I have olive-toned skin and find it hard to find nude/pink lipsticks in lighter colours that match my skin tone, but this ones perfect with it's peachy tone.
The thing that won me over most, apart from the cute colour, was the casing. I liked the idea that it was like a pen, or a crayon... Easy to use, with it's twist-up system like a normal lipstick, but more of a defined tip for a more precise application.
On application the lipstick is consistent in colour, leaving a lovely satin finish. You can build it up for a stronger colour, but I don't think you'd need to too much as it leaves a lovely colour with just one coat. It feels nice on your lips too, it doesn't feel like it's drying out and it feels quite like a cross between a lip balm and a lipstick. But saying that, the only thing I noticed that I didn't like was, although the colour lasts quite well, it started to dry out over time towards the outer corners of my lips and my lip lines. I did find a solution although, to apply lip balm before hand, but I wouldn't want to do this every time I applied it again.

This one issue I found is the only thing putting me off buying another one, but then again sometimes it's just the one colour that has the issue, as I've read a couple of other reviews on this product. Some bloggers noticed the same thing, but only in this colour! So it may not be the same for the other colours (I hope)! I was eyeing up the Lip Bullet in Joy Ride which is a bright red colour... Maybe a little later on, but not just yet. 

Have you got any of the Topshop Lip Bullets? How did you find them?
