Review | Topshop Lipstick in Armour

A couple of days before Christmas me and Sean popped into Topshop. I was on the hunt for a new lipstick. I've seen a few good reviews about Topshop lipsticks and I had found the exact shade I wanted online. After searching through the lipsticks I found the one I had been looking at; the colour was 'boardroom' and it was awful. It didn't look anything like the shade shown online and it wasn't going to suit me at all.

Determined not to leave empty handed I looked through the lipsticks again until I found a gorgeous pink/ almost purple colour. It wasn't I colour I owned and I knew I had to have it.
The lipstick was £8 which I thought was quite reasonable considering most of my lipsticks are over £10.
I first wore it a couple of days later and fell completely in love with it. The lipstick applied really nicely; going on evenly and creating a really vivid colour on my lips.

One of the nice things about Topshop products is their appearance. When purchasing new make up you want it to look nice on your dressing table and in your makeup bag. A lot of cheaper lipsticks come in boring packaging and the product itself can look pretty standard. This isn't the case with Topshop lipsticks as the come in a little box and the casing around the lipstick is white with black stripes which looks cute in the lipstick holder.

By far my favorite things about this product is the colour. Its a beautiful glossy pink/ purple that is just so versatile. I've literally been wearing it everywhere and I can definitely see myself wearing it for a long time.

My only complaint about this product is that its quite dry. I wouldnt wear this lipstick on dry lips as it would make them look much worse. This isn't a major issue though and it is easily solved by applying a small amount of Vaseline over the top.

All in all I'm very happy with the lipstick. The price is good, the colour is just amazing and it smells really good too, so for those reasons I would give it a 9/10

Thanks for reading!

  2. I have a few Topshop lipsticks now and although I love them I agree with you that their formula is a little drying which isn't great when my lips are dry from all this horrible cold weather. This shade is really nice on you though oh and by the way, you have amazing hair! xx

  4. Can't stand it when lipsticks dry out my lips! I went into my local Topshop recently and I actually thought the products were quite expensive for a high street shop, perhaps I should give them another chance!
