Topshop Makeup: Sun Beam and Sun Shower

Photobucket

You've probably seen a lot of TopShop makeup reviews already, and this is one to add to them! I bought these a few weeks ago, but only have time to blog about this now. My school year's finally finished! Projects done and handed in. I'm so happy :) I guess I have a lot of posts to catch up on. But anyway, moving back on topic...

I was really impressed by the quality of Topshop's makeup. And when I was at the store, I actually felt a similarity of these to MAC products! Their blushes were cream-to-powder finishes like the limited edition MAC in Lillyland blushes, their lipglosses were really sticky but with a slight vanilla scent, they had mineralized eyeshadows that were so beautiful and pigmented. I loved the quality. I just wished they had a bigger range of colours! ♥

So I got two products... a crayon in Sun Shower and a highlighter in Sun Beam. Keep reading for reviews, photos and swatches! :)

When I was swatching, I liked a lot of things, but these were the two that really caught my eye. I love gold makeup and naturally, I was drawn to these two.

Sun Shower crayon is a bright yellow gold colour. It is sooo smooth and buttery to apply. It feels like the MAC shadesticks, but I think this one is way softer and smoother to apply. This comes in another colour, a silver one. I'm contemplating on picking that one up too. This is such a gorgeous product!

Sun Beam is a yellow gold highlighter. Its a lot lighter than Sun Shower in colour. Again, its really pigmented and smooth. If you use this on your face, you'll need a skunk brush + a light hand for this one!

I think each of these two cost £8. Topshop gives 10% off for students with id, and this was no different.

I really want to pick up one of the blushes, a lipstick, and possibly an eye kohl. Its great to have these great quality products for a modest price! An amazing blush for £6?? Such a steal!

Have you picked up anything from this range? ♥
