You all know that I'm late with jumping onto the bandwagon with products and brands, always have been, and always will. After reading quite a few good reviews about Topshop makeup I knew I had to try some, so after my job interview at the weekend (WHICH I GOT, BY THE WAY GUYS, YAY ME!) I headed to Topshop to investigate their products, which is where I picked up a Lipstick and a blush. Can I just say, how cute is their packaging?! I didn't want to throw the boxes away, but decided I wasn't going to become the ultimate hoarder! The packaging is also very sturdy, so in that morning rush you can just throw these into you bag and not have to worry about them being damaged or any breakage or smashing of products.
I cannot get over how cute the packaging is, I love it! I opted for two of my favourite colours, a nice bright pink for lips and a peachy/coral for cheeks, these are two of my favourite summer trends at the moment! This is also the first cream blusher which I've owned in a long time. A few years back I owned one but threw it away after struggling to use it and never using it. But now, I think the formula's have of cream blushes have improved and my make up skills have also improved, (I'd like to think!) allowing me to apply cream blushes with ease. Phew.
This Lipstick immediately stuck out to me, but I think that's because I have a love of all things pink! I only wanted to get one Lipstick but I'm telling you, I could have brought them all! Well at least several...
I was pleasantly surprised at how creamy and moisturising these lipsticks are, which for someone with dry lips such as myself is always a bonus. The Lipstick also applies evenly, so if you're in a rush you don't have to worry about wasting time using a lip primer or brush, it just glides on effortlessly. It is also incredibly pigmented so you don't have to worry about building the colour. Although, obviously, the more you apply the more bold and vibrant the colour will be.
I thought I'd play it safe with this blusher as it can look really natural if you really blend it well, or you can use it for a more bold look. As it's name suggest I really have fallen head over heels in love with this product. I don't find it too creamy, and it blends really easily and you can either use your finger or a stippling brush for this. The best part about this product is although it's cream based once it's applied it becomes more powder based making it more easy to work with. Maybe it's because sometimes I can be lazy with my make up routine as to why this product is such a favourite, it's really quite effortless and perfect for beginners, it's certainly got me loving cream blushes again!
Have you tried any make up from the Topshop range yet?
