MORE TOPSHOP BEAUTY // AD [GIFTED]


As you may or not know I was recently contacted by Topshop to become a Beauty Brand Ambassador. I uploaded a blog post back in Feb showing you the first few products I received from them which I have linked here (if you did fancy a read of that!) I was sent some more products a couple of weeks ago so this is a follow up post to that. 

Topshop have recently relaunched their beauty range and they have such an amazing collection of on trend products taking you through from day to night. Everything is super affordable and the packaging is just so cute too. Topshop products are also all certified as cruelty free under the Leaping Bunny Programme which is so important. In this blog post I am going to talk you through the products I picked out and let you know what I think of them. 


I'm obsessed with Topshop's range of highlighting products. I chose two in my last post and I went for the Glow Liquid Highlighter in Misty this time round. I'm a sucker for makeup products with a pipette and this highlight goes on like a dream. This highlighter is designed to illuminate your complexion and enhance your features and it does just that. When using this product I either mix it in with my foundation (or even my moisturiser) before I apply my makeup or add it on afterwards as a finishing touch depending on how I'm feeling. 

This liquid highlighter lasts all day too which is amazing, I sometimes find products like this just don't have the staying power. I did find it tricky to pick a colour in this product as I wasn't sure how it would look on my skin but it is available in three different options. As for the finish this highlight is metallic & pearlescent, I think it is great for every day use and it would also look great on a night out too. 



I absolutely adore Topshop lipstick and all the ones I've tried in the past have been absolutely amazing. I chose the Mini Lip Bullet Trio & they are the perfect size for travelling or to just chuck in your bag on the go. These lip bullets come in such gorgeous shades and have an amazing colour pay off too. I am very much a nude lip kinda gal but all three of these colours look really nice on. One of them is a little bit more vampy but it's still very wearable and it's nice to change things up a bit too!

These lipsticks are so easy to use and they twist up too which is something you don't always get with minis. This means you get loads of product and the small size of the bullet makes it so easy to apply precisely. I always find Topshop lipsticks glide on so easily and these ones have a dewy cream finish which makes the product super easy to blend. My lips are super dry at the moment so I always avoid a matte finish as the dewy look is way more forgiving. 


Benefit is my go to for brows (blog post here) but I was super intrigued when I spotted this Brow Definer on Topshop's website. I was instantly drawn to it and I knew I had to give it a go. I am obsessed with textured brows at the moment and I think it's such a look.

I love how tiny the spoolie is on this product and it makes it so easy to use. The spoolie picks up just the right amount of product and it makes it super easy to control the application. It's smudge proof and lasts all day too which is great because I don't want to have to keep going back to my eyebrows during the day once I've done my makeup in the morning.

This product could be used after you've shaped your brows first (with a powder/wax) or as a stand alone product. It is also available in 4 different colours, I went for 'cheat' which is a light brown but it also comes in blonde, dark brown & nearly black too. 


Thank you so much for reading.
Until next time.

THE TREND EDIT: PEARL HAIR CLIPS




Hair Accessories seem to have made a bit of a comeback at the moment. I have seen so many cute clips and scrunchies all over Insta so I wanted to try the trend out without spending too much in the process. I noticed some pearly ones on Anthropologie that I really liked but when I checked Ebay I found some on there which were pretty much identical and a fraction of the price. I ordered these clips on the 20th of Feb and they arrived on the 1st of March which isn't bad at all considering they came all the way from China! Ebay can be quite hit and miss with the quality but these ones feel really good and at £1.99 per clip (buy three get one free) I really cannot complain so I just had to share!

I have just got back from my hair cut so I thought this would be the perfect time to take some pictures with the help of my 10 year old sister! I'm not sure if I can pull these clips off but I did enjoy having a play around with styling them.
