Review & Swatches | Topshop Lipsticks in Inhibition and Armour

By Sarah - Saturday, December 06, 2014

Hey everybody!
I'm finally back! School term is over so I finally can get my ass down to blog. Recently, I went to Topshop as they were having a one-for-one promotion for their makeup range. I have always wanted to try Topshop makeup products, but for their price, I would rather pay a tad more and get stuff from MAC or Sephora. So, this one-for-one offer is perfect.

I controlled myself and only got 2 lipsticks. One lipstick retails for SGD$19.90 so with the offer right now, a lipstick costs about $10 (which is awfully cheap! For Singapore's standards anyway). They had a really decent range of shades and I was really spoilt for choice! After swatching and reswatching for about half an hour, I finally decided on 2.

I got the shades Inhibition and Armour. Inhibition a gorgeous satin finish deep plum with blue undertones and Armour is a really shimmery reddish brown lipstick. I have never seen a shade like Armour before! It's super pretty! It's on the shimmery side, so matte lovers do beware!

The pigmentation of the lipsticks are really decent, considering the brand. I did not expect much from the Topshop makeup range, as afterall, they are a fashion brand. The texture of the lipsticks are smooth and they glide onto the lips nicely, with minimal tugging. There isn't a scent to these (unlike MAC) so they just smell like typical lipsticks, but not too overpowering that it will distract you during application. These lipsticks can be slightly drying on the lips, so I highly suggest that you prep them with lipbalm first before application. Lasting power was surprising too, I got about 4 hours of wear with these. Do note that it could be their slightly drying texture that provided it longevity!

Overall, these lipsticks exceeded my expectations! Since I got them during the promotion of about $10 each, I'd say that they are definitely worth it. However, without the 1-for-1 deal, these lipsticks will retail for $19.90 and I'd say that there are other better choices that you can get for the same or a slightly higher price. Despite that, the range of lipsticks were incredible and they had gorgeous purples, plums and deeper bolder shades that really caught my eye!

Rating: 4/5

Hope this review helped you in some way and thank you so much for dropping by! Go seize the opportunity to get the makeup products at a 1-for-1 deal before it is over!

Have a lovely day ahead everyone. Xo.
