Some more Topshop Sandstorm Collection make up...

I was so impressed by the Topshop make up I reviewed here , that I got some more from the range (ahem).

The items I got were:
  • Creme Lipcolour in Tawny
  • Nail Duo in Zealous
  • Lipgloss Stick in Ablaze
  • Lipgloss Stick in Glisten
Creme Lipcolour in Tawny
This is very different to the colours I usually wear but is certainly very wearable. It's a warm beige toned nude that actually looks good on me, and doesn't make me look like I've got foundation lips. I initially wasn't sure if I liked it as it is quite a bit away from my comfort zone but I've been told it's pretty on me. As with Daze, I think the formula is absolutely lovely and it has a gorgeous vanilla scent.


Nail Duo in Zealous
Same as my previous review - the metallic is the winner here for me (I also like the pink a lot though, it's blue based) - the formulation is very easy to work with, opacity is good and colour is nice and strong with 3 coats.



Lipgloss Stick in Glisten and Ablaze
These were a total whim because I liked the colours, both are quite sheer and glossy compared to the colour in the tube. Glisten is a dark pink (almost plum) and Ablaze is a very wearable light coral/orange - much better than the Barry M lipstick I tried last week to try and get the spring/summer orange lip look. These also have the same very nice vanilla scent. The wear on them isn't really long lasting, but they're a lipgloss...they're never going to last days on end. I've pretty much been wearing these since I got them.



High five, Topshop! I'd initially thought that their make up range wouldn't be so great but I've been proven wrong, even the packaging is nice. I've also heard good things about the cream blush and the highlighter from their main collection - I will be avoiding Topshop for some time now as I'm coveting a dress and some shoes from there as well and I MUST NOT SPEND.
