Topshop makeup haul and review


photo from Inside Out

I'll admit it, I am a bit of a cosmetic junkie - a bit ironic since I'm often too lazy to put it on! Naturally, when Topshop announced they were going to be releasing a makeup line, I couldn't wait to have go myself. Priced very reasonably with most things well under a tenner, the line did not disappoint. Here's my review of the four products I did buy (I had to stop myself from buying the whole store).



Kohl in Saddle
- £4


This dark chocolate brown liner (with a hint of shimmer) is really velvety and easy to put-on. It doesn't tug on your skin and glides real smoothly. Lasting power pretty decent for 4 quid.

Blush in Neon Rose - £6


Pretty creme blush that's natural and 'pop' at the same time.

Crayon in Sun Shower - £7


This is really, really gorgeous stuff. Super pigmented, super velvety. It's part of the S/S 2010 trend collection so you might want to stock up. Cute video how-to tutorial on the Topshop website. I think I may just have to buy the silver version.

Swatches


Top: Blush in Neon Rose, Middle: Crayon in Sun Shower, Bottom: Kohl in saddle

Lip polish in Melba - £6


This is my favourite buy, maybe not so much for the formula (tiny bit sticky), but the colour is really pretty, quite opaque and definitely lasts. My new favourite lipcolour, for sure.

Here it is in action (along with all the other products):

You can purchase Topshop makeup via their website.

I was on vacation, but when I came back and saw that TopShop had released a makeup line I went bananas! I'm trying to figure out what specifcally to purchase otherwise I'll go broke.

I just may have to get that lip stain though cause the color on you looks gorgeous!

I'm a little stubborn when it comes to make-up as I'm a MAC only lover, however the packaging alone is persuading! Nice post ♥
