On Friday for my last day at college before half term I decided to experiment with my new Topshop lipstick, ‘In Depth’, that I bought the previous weekend. My previous experience of high street stores makeup offerings has generally been negative but I can confidently say Topshop lips are one of my favourite ranges available on the high street. Although not all of the shades I have bought have been complimentary to my skin tone I can't fault the products full coverage.
This isn't a colour I would normally choose to wear on my lips but with burgundy being part of two trends in Topshop’s clothing range this season, I thought I would experiment with this dark plum shade. My first thought was that it was a bit of a bold statement, however, I teamed it with my black leather flying jacket with fur inside, disco pants and Dr. Martens. Personally I felt the contrast in dark colours created a winter theme perfect for the morning setting when I woke up.
The incredible satin-velvety finish lasted for about 5 hours meaning I only had to re-apply it once near the end of my college day, after applying it at 8am. Re-applying wasn't necessarily essential as the lipstick had faded evenly still looking lovely just at a lighter shade. With a retail price of only £8 it was a great cheaper alternative to Mac's "Diva". In the run up to Christmas and being a big fan of bargain shopping I felt it was perfect for me and my bank account.
