I went along to a lovely event yesterday at Topshop in the Bullring, it was a small event with only a few bloggers attending.
First of all we were introduced to the latest range called 'The Face' which includes foundations, concealers and primers. I'm a big fan of Topshop packaging, it simple but effecting. I love the thin capital letters, ( i'm a font lover )
The foundation is a lovely light texture, it's silicone based which makes it a silk-like finish. It has skin tone adapting qualities meaning there's a shade for everyone! The foundation has medium coverage but feels so lightweight. It leaves your skin looking luminous but comfortable and not cakey. At only £16 I can see this being a new day to day fave!
The concealer comes in two shades but again has skin tone adapting qualities so it will work for most skin tones. The dark shade is more for skin with yellow undertones and then the light for pink undertones. I've gone for the darker shade as I felt the light was a little too light. The coverage is amazing! Again it's silicone based so will blend easily into the skin.
The concealer palette is on my wish list this month! There's a colour corrector for blemishes, two shades so you can mix together the perfect shade and a setting powder. Thats four products for £12, such a bargain. It's a lovely sleek palette, perfect for your handbag, making it easy to fix your makeup throughout the day.
The Airbrush Primer is gorgeous, it blurs imperfections and erases the appearance of pores and fine lines. The silicone base makes it easy to apply and to blur out those imperfections. I have to say it feels very similar to higher end primers i've used. There's also a colour correcting primer which has a green tone to neutralize any blemishes and redness. Whilst your wearing the primer the anti-inflammatory qualities banish redness and the oil absorbing powders mattify and tighten pores.
Next up the NEW SEASON COLOUR COLLECTION, omg it's beautiful. Such a gorgeous range. The idea is there's a nail polish and blush to match each lip polish.
The Lip Polishes are available in a range of colours, my favourite is Twin, which is a gorgeous red/ purple berry shade. It's perfect for this season, the finish is glossy and gel-like. They appear very moisturing on the lips. I've heard good things about Topshop lipsticks in the past and I am very excited to buy one of these.
Next up a very interesting product, Cheek Jelly. It looks like a lip balm and kind of feels like a lip balm but it's for your cheeks. It's a gel like product that you apply to your face. It's creates a natural finish and is buildable so you can build up the colour. I love my blushers and I don't think this is really for me as I like a bright pop of colour on my cheeks rather than a more natural finish however for work and day to day wear this is really nice. You can apply this product to the lips or other areas of the face if you want to create a rosy look or add some colour to your face.
I've tried Topshop nail polishes before and i'm a fan, They are decent quality, cheap and they come in 49274246247 different colours!! They have some gorgeous new colours this season. I'm loving the gel effect! I love the colours. They are all fab and perfect for this season. I'm exciting to see what people think of these, still a bargain at £6!
