Mini Topshop Beauty Haul & FOTD



While out shopping the other day, James had popped up to Topman, so I had a little mooch around Topshop while I was waiting, and thought I'd try out a few of their make up bits I hadn't tried before.

I thought I'd share with you what I bought...


I love a brow pencil! I have gaps in my brows, naturally, so I use a pencil to fill them in and define my brows on a daily basis. I do like the pencil I'm using at the moment, but I thought I'd give this one a go.


I've been playing around with contouring lately. I usually used powder products but I've been practising with liquid contouring and loved the look of this highlighting stick, it looks super quick and easy to use and a really creamy looking colour. I'm looking forward to trying it out!


Keeping in theme with the contouring, I picked up this contour cream for shading and sculpting, I definitely need practise with liquid contouring so will see how I get on with this! :)


I also picked up this ice pink metallic lipstick, as you can never have enough nude lipsticks right? ;)




So, I've used the products in my make up look today, what do you think?



Products used:
Garnier 5 Second Blur Primer -- Revlon ColorStay Foundation -- Revlon ColorStay Concealer -- Topshop Contour Cream in Sweep -- Topshop Glow Stick in Play Up -- MAC Prep & Prime Transparent Finishing Powder -- Makeup Revolution Hot Spice Blush -- Topshop Brow Fixer -- Makeup Revolution What You Waiting For Eyeshadow Palette -- Maybelline Big Eyes White Eyeliner -- Makeup Revolution Double Flick Thick & Thin Eyeliner -- MAC Prep & Prime Lash Primer -- No7 Lash Adapt Mascara -- Topshop Lipstick in Mercurial -- MAC Prep & Prime Fix +


I still need a bit of practise before I can get a good contour finish, the contour cream is lovely to blend and leaves a good colour, and the highlighting stick is a nice finish, although can look a little 'shiny' on the face. The brow pencil is lovely to use, although the pencil I currently use has a brush on the end which I do miss with this pencil. The lipstick is a lovely colour, the formula is smooth and long lasting, although it's no MAC lipstick ;) I don't think any lipstick is on par with a MAC! Overall, I think for a low end brand, these products are great and will become popular products in my make up looks.

What do you think? 
What Topshop products should I try?
