The Best Of Topshop Makeup

It took me quite a while to make my first Topshop makeup purchase, I didn't really see what all the fuss was about at the time. I then became absolutely obsessed with their lipsticks but never really ventured into the rest of their range much until last year. Now I've discovered some real gems amongst their collection, so I thought I'd share with you what I consider to be their top five makeup products.

Glow Hightlighter
This is a little pot of magic! It gives the most gorgeous healthy sheen to the cheeks. The cream formula makes it so easy to apply and blend out. This would look beautiful used all year round, but I think this gives the perfect look for that sunkissed summer glow.

Nail Polish
These are some of the nicest nail polish formulas to work with. They apply so evenly and most shades are opaque in two coats, sometimes even one. They are a nice glossy finish to them, even without a topcoat, and last really well - I can get to a weeks wear with very minor chipping.

Ah, Topshop lipsticks - almost as addictive as MAC lippies to me! They even smell pretty similar too. The formula of the Topshop lipsticks is smooth and creamy, so the glide onto the lips really nicely and keep them hydrated. They have a pretty good wear time too, considering they are so creamy. They also have a really beautiful shade range, so I'm starting to build up quite a collection now!

Kohl Liner
I wish Topshop were a little more adventurous with their shade range with these liners, because I'd definitely pick up a tonne more! At the moment it's just the basic shades to choose from, but their black liner is brilliant. It glides on effortlessly, is so easy to blend out and will stay put all day.

Cream Blushes
Don't get me wrong, the powder blushes are good too, but the formula of the cream blushes just sets them apart a little. I wasn't much of a cream blush fan until I tried one of the Topshop ones last spring, and I was instantly converted. Like the glow highlighter, the smooth buttery formula allows for easy application and blending.

  3. It is bad to say that I've never used any Topshop make-up?!? I think I've got my eyes on the highlighter and the cream blushes. From what I've heard, those are winners! Thanks for sharing :)
