Topshop Makeup Haul! Neon Rose Blush, Pewter Eye Crayon & Polished Glow

Recently i popped into the large Topshop in Oxford Street and i wanted to check out their makeup collection. I tried very hard to control my spending and only splurged on three items......good huh??

The first thing i came across was this highlighter in a pot. I have such a wide variety of highlighters from powders to creams, however i have never seen a highlighter like the Topshop one.

I had previously thought this was limited edition but it seems to be a permanent in the collection. You only need a tiny amount of this highlighter, as a little goes a long way. The consistency feels like a mousse like texture and isn't the same formula as the MAC Cream Colour Bases.

The colour is a pearly pink and looks great on the skin if applied in the correct way. A note for darker skins is not to apply too much otherwise it won't look like a subtle highlight.

Apply this on your cheek bones, bridge of your nose and under the brows for a highlighted effect. I purchased this for £9, which i think is a great price to pay compared with the more higher end brands.

I then noticed this gorgeous blusher and i loved the finish effect is gave to the skin. It is a cream blush that has a matte finish. This is ideal for me, as i have combination skin and still want a flushed look but that is more matte.

This shade is a bright neon pinky coral. It appears very bright in the pan but once applied it adds a warm flush to the cheeks. It is very soft and creamy to apply and you can build up the colour if you want a more stronger look.

It is highly pigmented and i love the fact that it has a mirror, which makes it much more easier to touch up on the go. At £6, this is a bargain!

I love pencil/crayon eyeshadows and especially using them to layer on eyeshadow colours. The crayon is such a good product to use as a base for eyeshadow, as it makes the powder eyeshadow much more vibrant and makes it last so much longer. This is a pewter/gunmetal colour and when smudged in, it gives a smokey look.

This is creamy and easy to apply. I apply it to my lids and then smudge with my fingers or a brush. This dries to a matte finish and is crease proof once it has set......perfect for people with oily lids!

The crayon only cost me £5 and if you are looking for something reasonably priced that acts as a base for eyeshadow and doesn't crease, then i would suggest looking into these crayons. Topshop offer a variety of shades in the crayons.

Overall i think Topshop has some great makeup products and i will certainly be purchasing more. I just wish they offered a wider variety of colours, however i do have to say the products are of good quality.
