This is the first couple of products I have tried from the Top Shop makeup range and I have to say that I am impressed with them. I sometimes get a bit dubious when it comes to clothing stores launching their own makeup range because at times the products can be low quality and plain disappointing. It does make you think, why not just stick to what you are good at?
My fave lip combo for this week has to be Mac Shygirl lipstick (Cremesheen, creamy neutral coral beige) with the Top Shop Glaze in Frostbite (a very sheer gloss with teeny gold reflects). I love Shygirl because it's an easy way to introduce a subtle creamy coral shade into your look and it looks amazing against golden skin with a bronze eye! It's a bit brighter in real life than it appears in the pic. The formula isn't perfect but I can forgive that because I love the colour. You definitely need to prime your lips with a good lip balm first. The up side to the drier formula is that it stays put for a long time. Every cloud...
The Top Shop Glaze is exactly what it says on the tube...a glaze. Don't expect a highly pigmented gloss because that's not what it is. It's basically a lip gloss that will add gold reflects to any lipstick and make your lips look VERY plump. The sheen it gives off really volumises your lips as it catches the light. I love the way it transforms my usual lipsticks into something a bit more special. It's definitely a gloss I would stick to wearing at night time due to it's shiny, shimmery look. The shimmer in this gloss are by no means chunky or gritty and it smells alot like Mac glosses. I think the packaging is really pretty with the cute polka dots on the applicator.
What have you tried from the Top Shop makeup range? Is there anything you have your eye on?
On another matter...how amazing was Duffy's live acoustic performance of her new song on The One Show??? Her voice sounds amazing and I've always liked her retro look! How cute are her dimples!?
