A Long Overdue TopShop Make Up Haul

I don't know why I was so underwhelmed by the TopShop make up launch last year, but in my search for great cream blushes I was led back to it in search of 'Flush' and saw a whole bunch of other products I'm looking forward to trying.

The packaging has certainly grown on me and I would now go as far as to call it 'cute'.  

This cream blush is £6 for 4g and is a vibrant coral pink with gives me a very healthy glow as though I've just been on a ramble on the moors.  It works best when eyes and lips are kept neutral.

The texture is very smooth and creamy and it's a dream to blend.  You can sheer it out or build up colour depending on the looks you're going for.

I was also very impressed by the Kohl pencils and picked them up Frost, Coal and Dragonfly.  At £4 each you can't go wrong.  I really like the fact that they are a proper 'wooden' pencil which is so easy to sharpen into a fine point rather than the sort of plastic surround I see on some like No7 eyeliners. 

Frost, Coal, Dragonfly

They are extremely pigmented and soft - you need to apply hardly any pressure which is great for the upper and lower waterlines.

Without flash: Frost, Coal, Dragonfly

I can't wait to do a dark smudgy smoky eye with Coal and Dragonfly is a nice daytime alternative to black which can look harsh on me.  The muted dark green also makes my eyes look bluer.

The S/S 2011 Sandstorm collection is very pretty and I was almost tempted by the 
Equinox eye Crayon in Rose Gold.  However I swiped some over my eyes and it creased while I was checking out the rest of the collection.  A shame as the packaging and product are gorgeous.
