Y’know, being a beauty blogger n’all you’d think I’d have ventured into the world of Topshop make up more so than I had. Before I purchased these two products, I owned one lonely lipstick.
So a few weeks ago I had a little bit of time before the Bobbi Brown event and I ended up wandering into Topshop only to come out with a bag and two new additions to my ever expanding make up collection. I picked up the Topshop Liner in Ink first of all as my MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack is almost prune like it’s so dry. Most definitely passed it’s sell by date.
I wasn’t expecting much from this liner but I’ve not been able to put it down at all. I’ve literally worn it almost every day since. This stuff is absolutely incredible. I can’t believe such an amazing product is only £8.00. Firstly, I was thinking it was going to be a bit hard to work with as it took some effort to get the product on my brush. I think it had some kind of film over the top that you have to break through if that makes sense. This liner is extremely opaque, probably the blackest liner I’ve used in a long, long time. I find it really easy to apply too, both with an angled and a pointed brush. It glides on with such precision and does not budge. I’ve worn this all day and it hasn’t really faded at all, let alone disappeared.
Whilst in store, I picked up the Topshop Glow in Polished, a little tub of cream highlighter that I kind of magpie’d over to. It’s the palest of the shades available (the other is Gleam) and it has an almost duo-chrome effect in that it’s base shade is a champagne colour but when it hits the light there’s a nice mix of gold and almost pink/purple. What I love about this is that it doesn’t look too shiny or glittery at all, sometimes highlighters can make you look like a disco ball but this doesn’t at all. It’s a lovely, shimmer and really boosts the skin and is perfect for spring. That’s probably why I used it in my Spring Make Up Look and I received so many lovely compliments about my skin. I like to apply it with my finger and blend, which I do so with ease and I pretty much put it everywhere – cheekbones, brow bone and cupids bow. It really lights up my face and despite my oily complexion, it doesn’t overwhelm at all.
So there you have it, if you were thinking of venturing into the world of Topshop make up then I’d definitely recommend you look at these two products first.
