New Topshop Makeup

Last weekend I decided to check out the Topshop makeup stand as it had been a while since I bought anything from there. They seemed to have some new pieces so I thought I'd treat myself!

The first thing that caught my eye was something from their new 'Metallics' collection. It's the Cream Blush in Pulse. I thought this was really unique and pretty. It looks like a bit of a mad shade really, being pinky, purpley, shimmery, metallicy but it looks very subtle on the skin. It adds a slight flush of colour to the cheeks that has a beautiful glow and looks very fresh. I think this will look perfect in Autumn/Winter. I'm wearing it in the photos below but it doesn't show up too much. I'm still working on getting my lighting right after buying some softboxes!

I'd seen the Lip Bullets before but I wasn't that impressed with the shade range however I was intrigued by the new Matte Lip Bullets. I ended up buying the shade Plastique which is a gorgeous light-ish pink with a hint of lilac. (Not as purple as the first photo, it's more realistic in the lip swatch). This has a very smooth and comfortable texture on the lips. The only problem is that I find is that it can look a little patchy if you keep rubbing your lips together. I still really like it though.

Next up, I've got one of the lipsticks in the shade Legend. It's a gorgeous, bright, creamy hot pink colour. (Annoyingly, my photo seems to have a purple tint again! It has no purple in this at all!). I love this colour and the formulation is moisturising and comfortable. I would describe this as a satin finish, not matte and not really shiny.

A couple of nail polishes caught my eye as they were beautiful pink colours that seemed to have a slight purple iridescence to them. I had to hold them at weird angles to get this effect to show on camera! Anyway, the light pink shade is called Tickle Me and the darker pink is The Love Below. I think they are both really pretty colours. The iridescence doesn't really show up on the nail that much which is a little disappointing but I still really like the shades so I'll still get use out of them.
