topshop gloss ink in cruel
Topshop Gloss Ink's are high shine glosses combined with a stain. Think YSL Glossy stains with a much more reasonable price tag. I have the Gloss Ink in the shade Cruel which is a deep dark glossy berry red. As I'm one to shy away from glosses, I thought that I wouldn't like this so much. Yet this Topshop Glossy Ink has grown on me, and in all I really love the look it gives. A really sexy juicy pout which is perfect for winter nights on the town. My only niggle is that its SO easy to over apply these and make them look a bit too overdone (as per first photo). I had to blot my lips and reapply before getting even application, it looked like I'd applied way too much gloss. I also felt they were a teeny bit prone to bleeding, but my lips are terrible for this (hence why I generally wear matte lipsticks!), but a clear lipliner should keep this at bay.
The Skinny- Great budget dupe for the YSL Glossy stains! Other shades from the range include Sloe Gin, Sugar Rush, Smitten & Relentless
