Topshop makeup haul

I have been 'umming' and 'ahming' at Topshop makeup - especially at their lip products. However, since it was my birthday a couple of weeks ago (and that means i'm not broke anymore!), the 'umming and 'ahming' stopped and I braved myself and made a purchase. Since it is Autumn, the only appropriate thing to do is purchase some dark vampy lipsticks. Personally, I love a dark lip. I feel like it is the only thing that suits my skin tone, so naturally I am drawn to dark reds and plums. My order came through this morning and I thought it was the best opportunity to start my blog (something I have been thinking of doing since forever ago) and show you what I got!

First thing I picked up was Topshop's Lip Polish in Gallery 


I am using a picture from the website because photographing this product with my bad lighting is not doing it justice! The website makes it look like it would be a dark vampy burgundy colour but in my opinion it comes out a red-orange. I was expecting this product to be an opaque colour but it is quite sheer. The sheer-ness of this product definitely makes it wearable for an everyday purpose and it is super moisturising and glossy!


The second product I picked up was Topshop's Matte Lip Bullet in More Than A Woman


This is probably my favourite of all the purchases. It is a dark deep berry colour, quite true to the bullet. I would say that this is a dupe for Mac's Diva. It is a matte but not drying and it feels like it would be long lasting on the lips (keep you posted on that!). The shape of the bullet allows for easy application which is definitely a plus. The only thing that annoys me is the packaging because it gets easily messy (as you can tell)!

The last thing I picked up is the darkest of my purchases and a true vampy shade for autumn. This is Topshop's lipstick in Depth




This is one of the darkest lip sticks I own and I love it! I am a bit too afraid to wear it on its own, I probably will layer this on top of lighter lipsticks to get more comfortable before diving deep into just this. It is a matte deep purple colour but again not drying. I got this lip stick because a lot of people said it reminded them of MAC's Media lipstick (one of my all time favourites), but personally it reminds of me MAC's Cyber lipstick. If you're looking for a dark shade for the autumn time, you should definitely check this out!

Swatches from L-R: Depth, More than a woman, Gallery


All in all, I am very impressed with the Topshop makeup and will not blink twice before ordering some more! What are your favourite products from the Topshop makeup line?
