As you may have guessed from yesterday's post, all of Taxi London's range are named after places in England's beloved capitol city. I guess that's fairly quirky - better than naming them after things associated with taxis afterall...'Kebab', 'Rip Off' and 'Boozy Bird' don't seem quite as chic, do they?
I was drawn to the Taxi London lipstick for two reasons - 1. They were being sold for £1 each. 2. How tiny and cute they looked. It's true, shameful but true - I do get suckered in to buying products just because I like the packaging sometimes! However, unlike a few things I've bought partly just for the packaging, this Taxi London lipstick has not left me disappointed.

Packaged in a sleek, little silver tube and housed in a pink box, these lipsticks scream 'Young teen!' to me - but heck, I still like it! The product itself is smooth and soft to apply, feeling incredibly moisturising and comfortable on the lips. A few hours in to wear and my lips didn't feel a touch dry - fantastic! 'Pimlico' lasted an average time on me, but quite well for a non-matte formula.

A vivid coral-red in the tube, I was wondering if perhaps I'd picked up a dupe for MAC 'Toxic Tale', a colour I fell in love with last year. Close....but no cigar. 'Pimlico' is sheerer and more pink than 'Toxic Tale', which is far more opaque and clearly a few notches redder.

MAC 'Toxic Tale' dupe or not, 'Pimlico' is a lovely, fun, unusual shade which I can see myself wearing quite often once the Sun finally come out!
Are you going to rock some bright lips this Spring?
