Topshop Makeup

I, like many others, adore Topshop make-up. I'll admit, I don't really have a great deal, in fact I think I've only ever purchased three items from their range before (though two of them being the same product). However whenever I pop in to do a bit of shopping or browsing, I can't help but lust after the pretty nail varnish colours and lipsticks, blushes, eye shadows and other beauty products. With their cute packaging, adorable names and affordable prices, there's really nothing not to like.

I recently popped into Topshop as I had some gift vouchers I kindly received for my birthday back in March that needed spending. I decided the make-up would be my best bet on getting full use out of the vouchers, despite a very tempting sale section!

Without a doubt I was in dire need of a repurchase of their cream blush, Head Over Heels. I last bought it back in July last summer and since then it has been my everyday blush. Now, with only a tiny amount left in the pan I thought there was no way I could leave without it. Described as a coral colour which is a "Lightweight cream to powder blush that melts into the skin giving a natural luminous, radiant finish. Smile and brush onto apples of cheeks for a rosy glow."

I truly adore this colour, it's so pretty and really brightens my complexion. I apply it with my fingers as I find that's the best way to get a natural finish and a 'just-pinched' cheek look. At only £6, a product that truly lasts a long time and also comes with a little mirror, you cannot doubt that this is a fantastic product.

The next product is something I have been desperate to get my hands (and lips!) on for quite some time. I was browsing the Topshop website a while back and this truly fabulous looking lipstick look right up my street. Tease, which is described as a Barbie Pink, there's no way I couldn't have this, especially as a big pink and Barbie (shh...) lover! This really is a great lipstick. It applies like a dream and has between a matte and creamy finish. I would recommend that if you have dry lips you give them a good scrub to exfoliate away any dead skin and keep them moisturised before applying as you may find the lipstick clings to the dead skin. Despite that, it gives a great bright pink pop of colour to your lips. It's a blue toned pink so no yellow teeth here! I'm so thrilled with this lipstick and will happily include this as part of my daily make-up routine. It's £8 which I think is pretty reasonable for a high street lipstick.

So, what are your Topshop make-up must haves? Do you have any recommendations? I'd love to hear from you in the comments section below.
