Topshop Make Up

So i've finally pulled my socks up and decided to write a post on the much anticipated and talked about, Topshop Make Up.

As i'm sure you're all aware unless you've been living under a rock for the past month . . . Topshop decided to tap into the make up market and release two collections;

The first is the Core Collection - this will be available permanantly.
This collection caters for all your make up wishes, it stocks *DEEP BREATH* - Duo Eyeshadows, Mascaras, Eye Crayons, Eye Glitter Pigments, Kohl Eyeliners, Blush, Bronzers, Lipsticks . . . blah blah blah . . . you get the picture - Topshop have got all the grounds covered. ;)

The second is the SS10 Trend Collection - According to the Topshop website each 'Trend Collection' will only be available for 3 months before the next collection comes around, so bare that in mind if you plan to buy something from this or any other trend collection.

The SS10 Trend Collection products follow a contemporary festival theme,

Topshop say this about the collection
''think facepaint, art, ethereal beauty - and get set to discover your inner folk goddess"

Sounds good, right?!
This collection for me feels super summery, the rich yet warm tones in the trio eyeshadows look amazing, and very convinient for just popping in your bag if you are lucky enough to be going to a festival this year *jealous*.

Ooh and the Glitter pots look fab too, they look so vibrant and well who doesn't like a bit of sparkle in their life?!

What i bought . . .
I bought 3 products from the Core Collection; 2 Lipsticks in Desert and Brighton Rock and a Blush in Neon Rose.

The 2 Lipsticks have a great consistency to them, they are moisturizing and not at all dry, however they are still quite pigmented which surprised me (in a good way) as to be honest i was expecting them to be more sheer.

Desert is a browny/peachy toned Lipstick and it really suits my skintone, however if your quite pale i would suggest staying away as it may look too rich/browny against fair skin.

Brighton Rock is a fuschia hot pink colour. I think i must of been having an impulse moment when i bought this as i hardly ever steer away from nude lipsticks, so buying a hot pink lipstick is a rarity for me! I'm so glad i bought it though, the colour is gorgeous, its quite wearable and can be applied in quite a sheer fashion to achieve a daytime look, then you can pop a bit more on in the evening to get a *look at me* effect.
Neon Rose is a pink toned blush with a dash of coral to gain the neon colour, although it looks slightly intimidating and bright in the pan it goes on quite sheer and is not as vibrant as it looks at first sight. The consistency is a creme blush however it finishes on the skin to a matte finish, which makes it easier to apply. Oh and i should probably say, this is my first creme blush and i can apply it with ease, so deffo go for it if you've never bought one before. :)

Swatchey Swatch - From top to bottom we have Neon Rose, Brighton Rock then Desert.

Packaging wise, i'm sure you've heard this ten times over but how cute is it?! I think Topshop really hit the nail on the head here, its modern, unique and of a great quality > everything which Topshop stands for. A big thumbs up from me!

There you have it, let me know what you guys think!
Any Questions?
