So pretty with all the rose gold packaging. I never tried Topshop makeup cause it doesn’t look as appealing in Singapore as when you were in UK. Anyway, I just wanted this collection cause basically it’s Topshop best sellers products. And what better way to try them out then to just get the ones in the pretty packaging.
So I have 3 of the lipsticks, Innocent, Rio Rio, and Bequiled. Am missing Ohh La La, which is a coral pink and Nevada which is a nude. The nail polish I have 2, Boy Next Door and Parma Violet. Missing Heart of Gold, Adrenalin and Green Room. Then I have the rest of the anniversary collection.
So let start with the lipstick.
Innocent is a light pink. Surprisingly, I can wear this with no problem. The color does suit me just fine. It is yore pigmented but you can’t always rub your lips as the colors will not be even. So I have to be uite careful using this. But it’s a good lipstick. A comfortable pink.
Rio Rio is an orange red. Well it is a warm red but I always see an orange undertone. And even on my lips it kind of appear more orange. Pigmented and not n easy lipstick to use. So a lipliner is recommended. This is suppose to be a matte lipstick. But it doesn’t appear to be so. When swatch, it is not shiny, but on the lips it is not matte.
Bequiled is another matte lipstick. But as you can see it is not matte at all. It’s a beauty, but not an easy one. This is definately a good color to use for dinner, but I find that it doesn’t really appear even. It is quite hard to smooth it out. It won’t be as bad in person but a close up picture, you can see that it is not as clean. A lip liner is a must.
Glow in Polished is a beautiful highlighter. Not a fan of highlighters but I’m glad I got this. The color is just so pretty. A champagne pigmented cream that blends out to a glow sheerness. I thought it is a solid form in the pot. So I just dip my finger in. I end up making a dent cause the product is so soft. I thought it will be like a color tattoo, but no, this is soft and a little goes a long way. The picture doesn’t do justice on how pretty the color is.
Cream blush in Head Over Heels is a beautiful coral pink blush. The perfect blush for the summer. The cream is a nice consistency. It will turn to powder once applied. It blends well and can be sheer out if you think that is too much. Love it. Magic Liner in Engraved is a felt tip. It’s really dark and easy to apply. I have to barely touch my hand and the ink will flow. It takes about 5 seconds to set. If not it will still smudge. I haven’t really test how long this will last as I am not an eyeliner kind of person.
The nail polishes are average, lovely colours but nothing special. Boy Next Door a pretty light greeny blue. Perfect for the beach to contrast the water. Parma Violet a pretty lilac color which I feel I have a lot of. I need to take 3 coats to get a full swatch in the nails. The brush is thin, but it is ok. They dry quite fast which is good and finished shiny without needing a topcoat. Overall not that bad.
So yah, the collection is a pretty packaging and I just love them. The products I got are alright. The lipsticks I feel can be better, but the rest are good. I am not sure if Sg will have them, as I got mine from London. If buying in £ and living there, the price is good. But if I have to convert them to S$, I feel that they are quite ex. Anyway the shades are not limited edition so if there is something you want to try, you can always get the normal matte black and white packaging which is also quite pretty.
