Have you ever had one of those times, when you've seen a product on someone else's blog and immediately thought, I have to have that? Well this was one of those times for me. I was browsing through my Bloglovin feed and came across Fleur de Force's post on these Gloss Ink's from Topshop. I was instantly drawn in by the amount of pigmentation there was and the colour payoff on her lips was amazing. She had mentioned several different shades in her post but I have a soft spot for deep berry colours so I knew the shade Cruel would be perfect for me.
Next time I went to my local shopping centre I browsed the make up stand in Topshop and found the only sealed Cruel colour gloss and paraded down to the till with a smug satisfied look on my face and handed over my £8.
When I got home (after taking photos of course) I popped it on my lips. My immediate reaction was relief as I was worried that it would be sticky and if there's one thing I hate about lipglosses its getting my hair stuck on my lips. However, this one is a stain so after applying it stains your lips rather than resting on them, the colour payoff is AM-A-ZING and lasts for several hours before you need a touch up. You can build up the colour too to get your desired shade.
Obviously, I realise we are heading into spring so there are plenty of other brighter shades to suit everyone's taste but I'm pretty happy with my choice.
Also, hurray for me, I have now also purchased something off one of my wishlists in the same month I posted it! Usually all my money is swallowed up in the first week after payday!
Have you tried any of the Gloss Ink Stains from Topshop? What do you think?
