Cosmetics, cosmetics, cosmetics..
The world of make up over here has just got that bit more exciting over the past few weeks; this week saw the final unveiling of the Topshop make up collection, through to U.S fave Lime Crime hitting Space NK counters last month.
I was already rather excited by the announcement earlier this year of the new Topshop make up range, I was an avid Topshop make up raider back in my late teens when they used to run their own range amongst the likes of Pop beauty. So to hear that they were bringing make up back to their stores was fantastic news.
The Topshop collection is far more mammoth that I could have imagined; crammed with crayon pencils in bright glittering blues, cute multi-coloured lipglosses, & an astounding wide range of nail varnishes.
Not to forget the packaging, with a mixed of sketched polka dots and stripes adorning each individually designed item. They've certainly made a real effort with the range, bursting with in season pastel nail shades, coral lipsticks & glosses, to glittering bright eye shadows, & crayons.
Of course then there was the launch of U.S label Lime Crime at Space NK late last month. A brand I've already harped on about for their wonderful range of shades in matte shades; I've long searched for a bright blue lipstick in a matte shade!
To be able to pick up their range in a nearby UK branch is fantastic, even more so to get to play with each shade in person & truly define which shades suit me. Now my list has essentially grown from the 1 shade, to at least 3!
Not to forget the much awaited launch of Illamasqua's Body electric's range, bursting with illumination's, and bronze hues. The dazzling metallic Liquid metal and vibrant blue nail varnish are stand out pieces for those us not quite brave enough to venture into the bronzer's and oil's.
