topshop make up


I got a wonderful package the other day with some great Topshop make up inside. The first time that I tried Topshop make up was back in May when it was first released, but since then I hadn't actually been back for more for some reason. I just love the simple but quirky packaging and I think that everything is priced perfectly. Getting sent a few items to review has definitely reminded me what a great line of make up it is, and I really want to get my hands on some more to try out.

Balm in 'Dew' -


This is a really great balm, it's the perfect mix between a moisturising balm and a gloss with a great sheen. The colour isn't noticeable and differs from what it looks like in the pot but it is a really nice clear balm to wear over nude lips. It feels gorgeous on the lips and lasts quite a while too, which is always a bonus. The size of the pot is great to just throw in your handbag and use on the go, I'm also really impressed with the price considering what a great balm it is. It also tastes/smells of yummy toffee!

Eye crayon in 'Lazy Days' -


Next on to the eye crayon pencil. As I am obsessed with anything that has glitter in I am equally obsessed with this pencil. The colour is a unique combination of a dusky pink base colour topped off with golden shimmery glitter. I like to wear it all over the lid and then I apply a small amount to the inner corner of my eye which looks amazing with the chunky glitter. It does slightly crease so I would recommend using an eyelid primer first.

Cream blush in 'Nutmeg' -


I have already tried a cream blush by Topshop in the shade 'neon rose' but it was a little too bright for me so I was excited to try another shade out. I've actually been wearing this shade on my cheeks with a touch of bronzer all week because I feel like it just suits me perfectly. I simply swirl my finger around cream and apply three small dots onto my cheeks and blend. With it being a cream product you only need to use a small amount but you can wear it as pigmented or blended out as you want. I love how it turns from a light weight cream to a powder finish on the skin. It just seems to have the right balance of orange and coral tones to compliment my skin colour really well. I really recommend trying this one out as I can imagine that it will suit most people with olive toned skin. And for just £6 you really can't go wrong.

Skin glow in 'Light' -


Another one of my current favourite products in my make up routine is the 'skin glow'. Anything that makes my skin appear glowing in this horrible winter weather has to be a good thing as it can get really dry and dull looking in these months. I really like the violet tinted sheen that it gives to my skin but as I used a flash in the picture above don't be worried that you will look like a disco ball, it actually just comes off as a slight glowing sheen on the skin in person. You only need to use a pea sized amount either under or over foundation but you can just use it to highlight your cheekbones if preferred.

Cream Eyeshadow in 'Emerald' -


This is my favourite product out of the bunch as the colour is so striking and different. I don't usually wear eyeshadow but as soon as I tried this out I loved it and wore it straight away. Some cream eyeshadows can be a problem as they tend to crease on the eyelid but I can honestly say that I wore this all night and it didn't budge at all. It was also easy to apply using just a tiny amount and gently smoothing it onto the eyelid using my fingertips which was a lot quicker than using a powder eyeshadow. As you can see from the swatch the colour is forest green with emerald glitter which looks stunning. As only the smallest amount needs to be used I imagine that a tube will last ages so the prices works out really well again.

I think that I'm now left just as obsessed with their make up line as I am with the gorgeous clothes that I keep going to buy from Topshop. Let me know if you have tried Topshop make up before, and if so what your favourites are! :)

  12. I really like the skin glow! That would be definitely be one to try!

    The cream eyeshadow looks really nice too, but I probably won't like its application, not a great fan of cream blush either. I guess I just want CONTROL ;-) LOL
