As mentioned in my previous post last Saturday consisted on hardcore shopping and lovely food in Liverpool. An all round day of indulgence quite honestly.
Whilst in Topshop I made it my duty to stock up on some Topshop makeup.
Unfortunately for me my local Topshop(s) are fairly small and getting my hands on any Topshop makeup is near impossible.
With Coral on my mind induced by my recent purchase of Essie'e Tart Deco I was a woman on a coral-centred mission.
I picked up a Lipstick in Confession and Cream Blush in Head Over Heels.
Confession is a beautiful red with orange undertones lippie and Head over heels is a perfect coral blush.
I was also very interested in picking up Brighton Rock Lipstick. But whilst studying it in the tube I couldn't help but think I had a variety of several similar shades at home.
Gosh I look freckly! Please dont tell me their cute. At 22 im working towards Glam... not cute!
What I was a little disappointed with was how orange/coral the lipstick looked in the bullet, it comes out much pinker on my lips.
I must admit despite this I adore the colour, and for a lipstick hoarder like myself its a shade I don't already own a comparable to. Which is bordering a miracle.
The formula is moisturising and has a very light fruity flavour to it. Which is welcome to my MAC-standardised-vanilla-adjusted lips.

(your left)...I knew this would get confusing..cheek. I use a Japonesque stippling brush, discussed here to apply the blush, and the colour is brilliantly buildable. This shade is wonderfully complimented by a light dusting of Benefit's coralista...for added summery coral-ness.
I adore the this blush for a dewy look, cream blush is a formula I really enjoy wearing.
I must say I really am very partial to the Topshop makeup range.
Head Over Heels is £6 Link
Confession Lipstick is £8 Link
Ive read previously that Topshop makeup and MAC have the same manufacturer. I cant confirm after a cheeky Google search how true this is. But if any fact lies in that
rumour statement I cant help but think what a wonderful job Topshop are doing at injecting a bit of fun with their vibrant colours at an extremely competitive price.
What are your favourite Topshop makeup purchases?...Id love to know!
