Currently Obsessed: Topshop's Gloss Ink

Every now and then, I try out a new product and get that WOW factor. That "OMG I need this in every colour and to tell all my friends about it right NOW" factor.


Well... that's what Topshop's new Gloss Ink has. I tried this out for the first time and the weekend and was instantly in love with it.


It's a highly pigmented, long-wearing gloss that stays on the lips for ages. Used conventionally it has a high gloss finish, but it can also be dabbed onto the lips for a more matte stain effect.

The shade I have is Cruel, which is a deep, dark pink. Although this shade isn't an 'everyday' colour, I've already worn it a couple of times and am absolutely loving it.
It's very similar to the YSL glossy stains that I LOVE (more on those HERE, and also more about the L'Oreal versions HERE) But something about this is really appealing to me.

Maybe it's the packaging (which is matte black and lovely) or maybe it's the price (£8). Either way, I'd definitely recommend checking these out. There are four other shades in the line up, and I will most definitely be stopping at Topshop this week to take a peek at them! (read: buy one in every colour!)
The Topshop Gloss Inks are available now from Topshop, online and in store.

  4. I really love the packaging! Topshop always do well on the packaging front. Gorgeous colour too - unfortunately I have to stick to lipsticks as glosses really don't suit me!

  11. Ooh that's beautiful!

    Such a shame that Topshop have such an extortionate mark up for Irish customers - their polishes are beautiful as are a lot of their other beauty products. I know they'd sell a huge amount were there to be a fair price point.

  18. I think deep pink shades suit you Fleur, I like the look of this although on a windy day
    it might now be the best...
    In terms of price it is a great dupe for the YSL Glossy stains!
    Topshop really have it on the money with their make-up range.

  20. This looks beyond stunning, and the fact that it can double up as a stain? (Can you see I'm trying to justify it?)

  36. Wow look at the pigmentation of those glosses! And for only £8, I can't believe it! This actually looks like one of those "wow" factor glosses, as you even said it lasts a long time.You know I am not a big fan of lip glosses in general as I don't really like the feeling of them on my lips, but I really feel like I should go buy a few of these and give them a try. Would you say that this gloss is a sticky texture or do you barely notice it on your lips? Thanks.

  73. I'm normally one to like my darker colors in matte finishes but there's something about the slight sheerness of this one that makes the gloss finish extremely pretty. It looks like it suits your skin tone amazingly as well!

  74. I wasn't too keen on the idea of Topshop makeup because it just seems to me that Topshop leans more towards the fashion industry and not much on the makeup side. But perhaps, I need to let go of that prejudice and start trying it out :) That lip color, btw, is a gorgeous shade.
