Topshop Makeup

This is just a little post to show my first ever Topshop make up purchases. I have no idea what took me so long as i've always liked the packaging. I guess before I started reading blogs I never heard any reviews and I didn't know about the quality.

So I bought a cream blush in 'Head over heals' which was £6 and a lipstick called 'Rio Rio' for £8.

Cream Blush- Head over heals

I think the quality of this is really good for the price. It's a lovely coral-peach colour which easily blends, as you can see in the picture I have swatched it onto my hand and about that rubbed it in to show you what the colour would look like on the cheeks. It goes fairly sheer to give a nice natural flush.
I find that with my pale skin and green eyes, peachy colours suit me much more than pinker ones (plus I don't wear much pink in general)

Lipstick - Rio Rio

This is a bright matte red with a slight orange undertone. 
Despite being matte, I find the formula very nourishing and it has a satin feel which hydrates the lips. I really like the formula of the Topshop lipsticks and hopefully i'll be investing in more in the near future. Its fairly long lasting and I like to wear it sort of as a tint by really pushing it into the lips, which makes it last longer.

Wish List..

These are my current wants, as you can tell there is a bit of a colour pallet going on.. I'm loving the pastel trend at the mo! 

01. Topshop Moto Mint Striped hotpants £32. 
I love these gorgeous shorts, I thin they are so on trend for this Spring/Summer, plus I find shorts such a good staple and so easy to wear.

02. MAC lipstick in Shy Girl £13.50 
I have been eyeing up this lipstick for a good while now, I don't actually own any MAC lipstick and but recently I'm really getting into wearing lip colour and to me this one looks perfect! Can anyone persuade me to take the plunge and spend £13.50, is it worth it?

03. NARS blush in Deep Throat £20.50
This is a gorgeous corally colour and an absolute favourite amongst bloggers, second to the famous 'Orgasm'

04. Apple iPhone 4S in White 
I have been looking at this for a while now and I think I might have just persuaded myself that I need this in my life. Im so bored of having a old rubbish phone which i've has since 6th form.

05. H&M blouse in Mint £7.99
I love the fabric of this blouse and the style is perfect for me. My favourite thing is shirts with denim shorts as i'm sure you'll come to discover.

So I hope you're having a lovely sunday and enjoying this sunny weather England is currently having! Let me know what you're up to
I've got to get on with my university work - statistics boo! But maybe i'll pop into town to indulge..
