When it comes to fashion, I don’t have a healthy relationship with Topshop. Most of it falls into hipster territory, which terrifies me and truth be told, a lot of it is ridiculously overpriced. Occasionally there will be a piece I will purchase but generally, I don’t get Topshop fashion.
Their make-up range, on the other hand, is an entirely different story. The cute packaging (I love polka dots), the endless range of polishes and lip products – it outperforms against the average high-street cosmetics brand for which I applaud Topshop for because quite frankly, others have been too quick off the mark to slap their name on some make-up only for it to be dreadfully mediocre.
I’m pleased to see Topshop has played it hard and played it cool and even though I am considerably late to the party, I’m liking what I’ve tried from Topshop’s make-up.
I know that was a rambling introduction but it had to be confessed. Now. Let’s move on swiftly to two new colours I was kindly sent to try.
First up is Teal My Thunder*, which is a bloody marvellous name. (Yes, I know my cuticles are parched – let’s just gloss over that and concentrate on the product, shall we?)
Secondly, but not least, is the deliciously blackcurrant pastel Prestige* (“Worldwide!”). I’m sorry, I added the extra word in quotation marks as a nod at Stepbrothers. (If you have not seen the movie, we can’t be friends.)
These creme polishes are opaque in one coat though I went for double for good measure. The formula is wonderfully rich in colour and bone dry in minutes. It’s also a breeze to apply, when normally I am quite cack-handed with nail polish jobs.
I heard rumours that Topshop polishes were the bomb and now my first hand experience with them confirms it. I can’t wait to try more! Do you have any favourite shades from Topshop nails? Please post them in the comments box below and I will probably add them to my shopping list.
Topshop nail polishes cost £6 each and are available in stores nationwide and online.
When I heard Orly’s new summer collection was entitled Pacific…
Hola! Apologies for the pause since my last post. Ramadan started…
Avon welcomes a spectrum of new colours into its Gel…
Prestige Worldwide.. wide.. wide..
Boats and ho’s, boats and ho’s…
How sad is it that even the nearest top shop is 50 miles from me lol!
Britny, I do wonder why you’re still living in the middle of nowhere! Xx
I often wonder myself.
Btw can you recommend a nice trio or quad of green/turqouise. Hate the mac mineralize set i bought
Britny, Charlotte Tilbury has a quad that may be worth checking out. Are you looking for matte based shadows?
Im open to anything but creme eyeshadows sheenie. I dont mine matt or sparkle or whtatever i just find cremes difficult to use
How is this, Britny?
Oooh sheenie those colours are fab, perfect. Are the shadows good and long
Asting never heard of this brand
When I was at the Charlotte Tilbury counter in Birmingham’s Selfridges, I tried a different quad – not tried this one. Selfridges stock her make-up and I am in love with the lipsticks. I think it’s better value than Tom Ford although the quads are smaller in comparison. I have tried a TF quad and CT is much better.
Also liking this.
Agrh this is what i hate about not being able to touch and feel products where i live
Helps if i put the link up lol
Ooh I have that one! Not used it yet… Sorry! I have never had a problem with Nars but you do need to touch and feel the product before buying. In your case this is virtually impossible.
