I was shopping yesterday so went to check out topshop's new make-up range. I was really excited to see what all the fuss was about after hearing loads about it in blogland. I have to say i wasn't blown away. The thing that did stand out to me though is the packaging... it's super cute and feels really good quality. I came away with two things, the cream blush in flush and a lipstick in desert.
Cream blush - flush:
I had never tried a cream blush before but after hearing so many good things about these I knew i was going pick one of these up. The consistency is cream to powder so it isn't oily or greasy and looks really natural on the skin, creating a natural and pretty flush of colour. I can't compare this to any other cream blushes but I am impressed.
Lipstick - Desert:
The lipstick was a bit of an impulse buy, I think I picked it up just because I wanted to try more than one thing from the range and nothing else was catching my eye. The consistency and formula of this lipstick seems really nice but it's the colour I'm not too keen on. It looked like a pretty nude colour in the shop but it's quite brown with orangey undertones and it just doesn't work with my skin tone at all. It reminds me of rimmel - nude delight and revlon - nude attitude, i have both but rarely wear either. I think it would work better on someone with a darker skin tone but unfortunately it's not for me.
So overall I think the cream blushes are the standout product of the range. Nothing else really wowed me to be honest. The nail polishes did look really nice and there seemed to be a nice colour range but i'm trying not to buy anymore nail polish so i skipped on those.
