Wishlist #10 - Topshop Make-up

From L-R: Top - Lips / Liner / Smokey Eye Palette / Kabuki Brush
Bottom - Nails / Lip Bullet / Blush / Nails 

Shock horror I don't own any Topshop make up but I have read many a good thing about their range. There I was browsing the Topshop website and I decided to create a wishlist. Lately I haven't really had any inspiration to blog and I find wishlists come easy to me because its relatively like window shopping? Plus I love reading them because I'm nosy so I assume everyone else loves reading them? Anyways here is my list; a couple of lipsticks, a couple of nail polishes & a good old eyeliner. Their nail polish range is something I have heard good things about - the range of colours they do being one thing and the fact they last long & don't chip easily being another thing. So the two colours I chose were Blue Jeans & Wide Awake. Blue jeans is an amazing green/blue shimmery colour and Wide Awake is just the perfect orangey coral Spring colour. Everytime Topshop bring out a new lip product I always think "why have I not tried any yet?!" I read many, many reviews on  them and wonder if they are as amazing as people say they are. The lipstick looks like a subtle peach/nude colour (Ooh La La) which would be wearable for everyday and the Lip Bullet is obviously more of a statement red (Joyride) which could work everyday or be worn more for a night out. Next up is the Kabuki brush because I need a new brush and I really loved the electric blue colour! My favourite make up has to be eyeliner because it just transforms any look from simple to sophisticated. I picked this one in the colour Black Cab because I like the look of the slick & skinny design and the nib looks really easy to use. Next I chose this Golden Aura eye palette because the colours are just so neutral & easy for everyday wear or you could build them up to create a smokey eye... which I, unfortunately, cannot do very well anyways so I would just use this for some highlight and natural eye looks. Lastly, the one thing I have read so many good things about is Topshop blush. This blush is in the colour Flush, I love the peach tone and i am definitely more a peach wearer than a pink blush as it suits my skin tone better so this would sit quite nicely in my collection. 

If you have tried any of these products please let me know what you think? Wishlists make me want to buy everything I choose :(

Lots of love,

Seventeen Phwoarr Paint Under Eye Concealer in Fair


I have seen plenty reviews on this little pot of goodness so I decided to jump off the Collection lasting perfection train and jump onto the Seventeen phwoarr paint train! This concealer is literally amazing. As you can see, it is called under eye concealer but I do tend to use it on any blemishes I have just to cover them up a bit better! Its such a creamy formula and it feels quite heavy going on the skin, however once its blended in it really does make a difference. It literally covers up my eye bags so well; I have to get up at the crack of dawn most days for work so whacking this on really does make me look a lot more awake than I actually am! At the moment I am just dabbing a bit on my finger and applying it that way, I don't really like doing this so I am on the lookout for a concealer brush or something similar? If any of you have any recommendations please let me know? :)
