Matte Battle: Which of these Topshop lipsticks do you prefer?

As you are all probably aware by now, I’m a huge lipstick fan. I love experimenting with different shades but my only requirement is that any lipstick I use HAS to have a matte finish. As I have oily/combination skin, matte lipsticks draw less attention to it, so if you have oily/combination skin, matte lipsticks are the way to go.

I was sent three lipsticks from Topshop to try out and I must say I was very impressed.

The three shades I received were Inhibition, Depth and Beguiled.

I’m just going to share my opinion on these lipsticks with you before I show you the pictures:

My personal favourite out of the three is Inhibition. I’m obsessed with pink lipsticks. I own about twenty, I swear. I love how pigmented the colour is and it really compliments by complexion. I’d love to hear from you as to which shade you prefer.

Generally, I like that the lipsticks aren’t glossy and they are long lasting. I always test lipsticks by how they look once I’ve finished eating the messiest lunch/dinner lol and this one barely budged at all. I was so impressed. At £8 each, you are getting your money’s worth because you don’t need to apply a lot of product in order to get full coverage. Inhibition is perfect if you want to start using bright lipsticks or you like the colour pink. Beguiled would be more suited to the ladies out there who love to stand out and make a statement, however, I would recommend that if you do decide to try Beguiled and Depth, you use a lip liner first. I actually don’t own a lip liner so I found it very difficult to perfectly apply all the shades. Other than that, I would definitely recommend these lipsticks to all the beauty junkies out there.

Pros – matte finish, good value for money, nice packaging, formula, colour is pigmented

Cons – not 100% easy to apply, some shades more bold than others

Topshop Long Lasting Lipsticks can be found on their website and are priced at £8.

      Lol I’m a serious lipstick junkie, it’s actually crazy how many I own! Depth is a good shade but I wish I had used a lip liner beforehand as it was quite tricky to apply.
      Yeah definitely do, all three shades are really lovely.
