We are well and truly into music festival season here in the UK, with that comes a new and exciting collection from Topshop that is funky enough to make a statement yet features perfect day to day staples too. If you enjoy multi-purpose items, glitter and cream formulations this a range you will want to check out. Let me share a few of the must try items I have been trailing lately...
Topshop Glow Dome in Galactic £9 - link
Top marks to Topshop for creating a hard to mimic or dupe for that matter shade range. Not only does the Topshop Glow Dome in the above purple/brown shade that is Galactic but also a duo chrome orange/pink too! Both colour ways reflect light meaning they never appear to be a soild shade and do change shade depending on the wearers skin tone. Cool effect aside this is a beautifully formulated product that glides on to the skin thanks to the cream texture yet quickly sets to a soft focus powder finish. The idea behind the Topshop Glow Domes is that you can use them on both the lips and cheeks, or even eye area should you fancy. In my experience the pigment level is fairly sheer yet buildable, the good news is that when used as a blush it did not settle into my pores (it wore for around 5 hours) and as a lip colour it wasn't overly drying (it wore for around two hours).
Topshop Lip and Cheek Smudge in Always on Time £8.50 - link
Another product that has been created for both cheek and lip use is the new Topshop Lip and Cheek Smudge Sticks, four shades to choose from to create a soft yet matte flush of colour. To know me is to know that I will always hone in on coral or peach hues so the bright, punchy Always on Time is right up my alley. Despite being a light and orange based coral this is not chalky in appearance nor neon, rather it is a super flattering peach that brightens both the lips and complexion. The Topshop Lip and Cheek Smudges also feature a brush at one end to allow for both precision and easy blending. I personally prefer applying the formula to my lips (creamy yet matte) but will vouch that despite being creamy it is fairly long wearing on the face to (around 4/5 hours per application). As this is a chunky crayon it would be ideal for both festivals and travel as it would fit comfortably into even the smallest of bags or pockets.
Topshop Glitter Pot in Vision £5 - link
Calling all glitterbugs the new Topshop glitters are a must, not only can they be applied to the face and nails but also the hair too! With five shades to choose from you really are spoiled for choice, I have Vision which is a chunky holographic blue/purple glitter. My only advice would be to invest in a good eyelash glue or face adhesive for facial application - it will go everywhere otherwise. Topshop have just launched one within the Topshop Festival Beauty Collection which you can find here for £5 - link. Otherwise I recommend Duo Glue or Eylure Eyelash Glue.
Topshop Party Proof Mascara £10 - link
All festival goers need a waterproof mascara don't they? Something that will stay in place regardless of the weather conditions and if it adds volume, length and beautifully separates the lashes all the better right? Well Topshop Party Proof Mascara answers the call, a great waterproof black mascara that will have your back regardless of what Summer throws your way. I also have to add that the brush is a great shape and size, an elongated conical natural fibre brush that grips onto even the smallest lashes with ease. I would also recommend this for anyone who likes a little mascara while lounging around the pool or dipping in the sea. At £10 it is a little pricer than Topshop's usual offerings but worth the investment if you want to avoid the Panda eye effect.
A pretty collection wouldn't you agree?
