Wha!? Let Me See That Purple Again: It’s Topshop Lip Cream in Double Take

Published in: Daily Beauty

Ooh! Look at that…


I’ve been a little obsessed with purple lips lately (I think Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year, is partly to blame).

Here I’m wearing Topshop’s $14 Lip Cream in Double Take, a glossy, pigmented purple lip cream.

Pretty, yeah?


It’s available now at Topshop stores and topshop.com.

Anyone else going through a purple lip phase?

Just me?

    Unrelated but relevant.
    About that Becca Cabrera pencil? It’s on haute look for $8.00 and available til Thursday or while supplies last. Happy dance for you.

    i’m not as confident to pull this off, but the colour looks lovely on you!

    BTW — how do you get your hair like that? i bought a curling iron with good intentions, but put it back in the closet until i get the urge to experiment again.

  3. That is gorgeous and I really want it now!

    I’m in a purple lip phase too! Currently love sleek’s exxxagerate.
    Another shade I’m loving is MAC’s Up the Amp.

    Haha for a second I thought Tabs was on your lap because I could see some tabby ears! Happy new year, Karen! This is the type of shade I haven’t fully learnt to appreciate on myself yet, but it’s stunning on you!

    Oh my gosh – I think the Purple Lippie Monster has attacked all of us !

    After the Pantone announcement of Radiant Orchid came out I think I lost my mind a little bit. So far on my purple rampage quest to have every lilac/fuchsia/orchid lipstick in existence I have purchased:

    Stila Color Balm in Gemma
    Marc Jacobs Lip Gel in Little Pretty
    YSL Rouge Volupté Shine in Fuschia in Rage
    Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie in Fly High
    Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Anarchy
    Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Asphyxia (Eyeliner but who knows ?)
    Too Faced La Creme Lipstick in Lollipop
    Sephora+Pantone Universe Radiant Rush Matte Lipstick

    I think there are more but I can’t be sure – I see purple and lilac everywhere and I must be stopped ! Sephora is going to have to start claiming me as a dependent on their taxes for all the time I spend shopping there…

    But such a lovely color… ! Good luck to all in finding your perfect shade and kudos to Karen, as always, for her wonderful advice, witty, insightful posts, and beautifully photographed examples of the makeup we all have to have now. You look just amazing in that color !

    Hugs to Tabs and Happy New Year !

    I would love a full review of of these lip creams I have been dying to try them but I want the Lime Crime ones too

    MAC’s Venomous Villains Violetta did that to me in 2010. I went to MAC’s Venomous Villains (huge) event, and the makeup artist who did my makeup said, “I wouldn’t put this on just anyone, and you still might say it is too out there.” I said, “I am extremely adventurous with my makeup, try me.” His response, of course, was “I like you.” I loved it and bought it immediately! I am also very glad the shade was picked up in the Preferred Pinks palette. I still love purple-hued lipsticks and glosses!

  20. Chelsea says:

    I’m pretty sure purple lips aren’t for me, but I love it on you!

    Happy belated New Year!

    Such a pretty colour! Am I mistaken, or are you based in Canada? I ask because I am and have been wondering on what the best way to get my hands on topshop cosmetics is; if you are Canadian, any tips?
