topshop SS11: sandstorm


Say hello to the new Topshop makeup collection: Sandstorm. This is in no way a promo post, I just wanted to write about it since it's so pretty and I actually like pretty much every product in the collection. My purse is going to absolutely hate me if I dare step into a store and have a look because I know I won't be able to walk out empty handed!

I especially like the look of the creme lipcolours as both shades seem really wearable. Apparently they have a matte finish which seems weird because it looks like it would be glossy. Even stranger is the fact that there are in fact lipglosses in the form of sticks. Not sure what happened there but it all seems a bit back to front. Definitely looking forward to trying them though!

The packaging has such a luxe feel, coming from a girl who loves gold everything, this is pretty much perfect. The pink polish looks absolutely wonderful, and so refreshing since I've been sticking to classic colours for as long as I can remember! There are some more products to come but these are all the stock images I could get hold of so far (apart from this bronzer/blush duo) so I'm excited to see the rest! I know I have way too much makeup already but the prices range from £5-£12 so it's not going to make that big of a dent into my bank balance.. at least compared to what the MAC Wonder Woman collection will!

  2. Ooh these look lovely. The red lip creme looks gorgeous, although as you said, it doesn't look very matte! The packaging is so pretty too

  3. I love the look of the turquoise-ey nail varnish- so summery! The eye-shadow crayon looks amazing too. I get the feeling my purse isn't going to like me much either!

  6. I have two products from the collection, theres a post on my blog if you want to look. I have the eye crayon in Equinox and the gloss stick in Ablaze. The gloss is so nice, I actually prefer it in a stick because it's not as messy.
    Really lovely products, check out my review. x

  15. I think Topshop make-up is so affordable, good quality, cutely packaged. I think the nail varnishes look particularly delectable and those lipgloss stick thingys :)

  16. I desperately wanted Equinox eye pencil to work out, but I tried the tester on my lids and it had creased before I'd finished browsing the make up :(

  18. Ooooh the gold is definitely calling to my magpie tendencies too!

    Also, if you're interested in the wonder woman makeup I read somewhere that it's being sold in selfridges already?
