I’m very fickle when it comes to makeup – apart from my beloved Rimmel Hide The Blemish concealer which I’ve been buying for 11 years, I’m easily swayed by discounts and freebies and love to try new products. I’m rarely loyal to one brand and have flirted with everyone from Benefit to Estée Lauder.
When Topshop launched their makeup collection I bought a cream blush just to give it a try. I was so impressed I went back for a different shade, then decided to try a few of the lipsticks, a lipgloss, the tweezers…
And now I’m officially in love. The cream blushers are rich and long lasting (Neon Rose is the shade I wear in my outfit shots), the lipsticks glide on smoothly and stay put for hours. After a decade of avoiding lipgloss, this pouty pink shade has won me over and the liner is blackest black – perfect for creating a flicky cats eye. I’m a sucker for pretty packaging too, so the art student scribbling satisfies my shallow side.
Topshop makeup is really reasonably priced – lipsticks are £8, blushers £6 – and lasts well too. These products have become permanent fixtures in my makeup bag and I’ll keep adding to my collection. My flirting days are over!
