Mini Topshop Make Up Haul

STUDENT LOAN IS HERE!

It's tradition that when my loan comes in I have a little/big shop! I've been feeling pretty stressed because I have to hand in my dissertation tomorrow! AHH! I think I will be ok just need to get bits done today, (hence my procrastination of a blog post!). Annnyways, on my little shop I bought lots of lovely new beauty products, I thought I would do the haul in bits as I did buy quite a few things.

Starting with my Topshop make up haul! I love Topshops make up, especially the wide range of nail varnishes (I have a lot, hehe!). The colours are always slightly different, sort of brighter and more youthful than other brands and are really good value for money! They vary from £5 - £6 depending on their properties, for example, a glitter shade etc. I normally just glance at the row of colours see one I like and buy on impulse, I rarely stop to consider it. After all, a girl can never have too many nail varnishes!

 My latest nail varnish purchase was 'Eclipse' - a metallic green, with a gold sheen. It looks a bit darker in the pot than on the nails but I'm still pretty happy with the colour, it's sort of futuristic in a way! I think it will look great with a black outfit (which I plan on wearing on my next night out, hmmm convenient!).

I also bought 'Hazard' lipstick. I only have one other Topshop lipstick, 'Whimsical' a nude/coral colour. I do like this lipstick, but I suppose I have doubts because I'm not really a nude type of girl, but, the quality is good and is surprisingly moisturising on the lips. I've been looking for an affordable deep red for a while now, I saw this and thought the colour was perfect. A blood red stained look that is really seductive and sultry. I'm pretty excited to wear this especially because I'm dying my hair back brown next week and think this will look amazing with dark eyes, dark hair, dark outfit, dark... everything! So, yay! Very happy with this, thank you Topshop!


Hazard
My final purchase was an eye crayon in 'Marble'. It's a metallic soft eye liner than can be smudged and worked to a cream shadow or highlighter, really versatile. I actually bought this for my dissertation practical bit of work which is a short video, all to do with reflecting light off make up (it's a bit more complicated than that, but I won't bore you with the details!) however, stupidly, I forgot to take this in my kit as I was saving it for this haul post! Ah well, I made do! I'm really happy I bought this though, I normally smudge a little bit of Illamasqua's liquid metal in the corner of my eye for a highlighted look but this shade is the perfect balance between creamy/white and gold, I'd say a pale copper. It's a lovely shade and really workable.

Marble and Hazard swatch
Out of the three, I am most excited to wear 'Hazard'. It's getting to the point where my lipstick collection is ridiculous but I just love them! I'm also super happy with this as I don't really have a deep red and have wanted one for ages!

Are you a fan of Topshop make up? Any favourite pieces? LET ME KNOW BELOW!

  2. Love the lipstick and the nail polish! The eye crayon color inspires me to try using a color like that as a cream base to build my powder eyeshadows off of.

  11. I love Topshop makeup. Whimsical is my most used lippy cause it's great for every day and I'm not the most daring person with my lips even though I'd like to be. I love their highlighters and creme blushes too. Love your blog :)
