TOPSHOP Spring Summer Makeup

Here are a few bits I picked up from TOPSHOP Makeup recently that I thought I would share my thoughts with you. Oh and I have a new digital camera if you wondering why my pictures look a little better quality than normal - I still need to play around with the settings!

TOPSHOP Make Up Spring Summer 2011
A Closer Look
First of all I picked up a 'cheek' stick in a rosy pink shimmery shade 'Luminescence' which is a similar product to the NARS Multiple. It is a multi-use cream stick to add colour and highlight face and body. I applied this directly to my cheeks to give that holiday glow to my skin. I was impressed as the consistency wasn't as oily as the NARS version so lasted much longer on the skin which is essential when on holiday as the environment tends to be hot and humid.

I got the Lip Glaze in the shade 'Bubblegum' which is a lovely rosy pink. I found this glaze non-sticky however it was quite sheer so best to use over the top of your lipstick to add gloss and shine.

I was excited to try the Liner in 'Ink' as I was expecting a very deep intense black from the appearence in the small jar. I found it to be not as dark as I was hoping for, but it dried quickly so I was able to add more layers to create an intense winged eye liner. It lasted very well and was extremly difficult to remove at the end of the day!

The last TOPSHOP nail polish I tried was dreadful - I thought it was over priced, poor quality and it chipped really badly after a day. However, I would say they have changed their formulation and improved the quality as this polish I tried from the Spring Summer 2011 collection is far better, better quality, applied smoothly and lasted around 5 days without chipping. The packaging is cute and I adore this retro orange shade called 'Mover and Shaker' for summer - looks awesome on the toes too! I would say the price is fair it seems alot of polishes have gone up in price recently (I blame Cammeron!) and you do get a decent sized bottle for your cash.

Have you bought any makeup from the TOPSHOP range recently? Anything I missed?
