Topshop Makeup Haul & Review

Hey Dolls,

So the other day after the Sleek event me Shirley and Hannah made our way over to Topshop to see the New range (exciting!)

So there was a whole section for all the makeup which filled all the walls and the stands in the middle, it was SOO crowded (well it would be, lol) so i tried to have a look at everything but it was kind of hard with everyone pushing!

Anyway i had a quick look at everything they had on offer and a few things caught my eye. They have a core range and also items which are on trend more-so and the trend items will rotate every 3/4 months.

I was mainly interested in the Nail Varnishes (i have an unhealthy obsession), the blushes and the lipsticks. So i was hovering around these for quite a while. I found that there wasnt really a big range of the lipsticks so i was a little put off..the nude shade did look nice but i didnt really want to spend £8 on one. The eyeshadows looked cute but i wasnt too wow'ed by them.

I grabbed two Nail polishes and one of the creme blushers as i had swatched one before and really liked it, i also got an eye crayon to try out because it just looked kind of pretty and fun! also i got a lipgloss for my sister =]

My Creme Blushed in 'Nutmeg'

The blush is my fave item that i brought, its a creme to powder and really easy to work with, its also builable

One of the nail varnishes i brought, this one is 'Gypsy Night' (£5) I LOVE this varnish i feel its quite unique and its great over a black varnish..i want to experiment over different colours.

The other varnishes i brought are 'Hopscotch' a light grey / cement and 'Daredevil' a shimmey cranberry colour.

The staying power of the varnishes are pretty good, nothing amazing but not bad, the colours do come out nicely

All the makeup ranges between £5 - £15 so thats pretty good but with certain things you have to wonder wether they are worth it!

I am wanting to try the Tinted Moisturiser and the gold shadestick so look out for a review on those!

Overall i would say 4/5 stars for the Topshop Makeup, i do really LOVE the packaging and the creme blusher especially but i do need to try more products out to get a better idea of the whole range.

Hope this was helpfull,
Have you tried the Topshop makeup...what do you think? =]

ooking forward to trying out the cream blushes!
I tried to comment on your video but youtube wouldn't let me :\
I bought two of the dresses you did in green and black and white stripes - they're great for only £9.99 and I prefer them to the really popular £5 Primark ones! I popped into Primark afterwards and bought a handful of their £1 plaited belts to put under the bust of the dresses and they look lovely!
They look more Topshop-esk than good old H&M! :)
