Exploring Topshop Beauty



When Topshop first released their beauty line I loved the look of the products on offering. The packaging is always pretty beautiful, the shade ranges are quite expansive and the prices aren't too bad either. I tried a couple of products, some I liked, some I really didn't - and I haven't tried anything from Topshop since!



Over the past few weeks I've been giving three Topshop beauty products a try, a brand which is now available online at Feel Unique. I have to admit, after not trying anything from the range for two years, I'm pretty darn impressed with this little selection of products!

Topshop Beauty Glow Highlighter in Gleam, £9, is a product I have heard so many people rave about. It's a super popular product and after trying Gleam, a stunning subtle rose-gold highlight, I can see why. With a light-weight cream formula I find it easiest to apply with fingers opposed to a brush, working amazingly well to add highlight and radiance to cheekbones and brow bones with ease. It also has pretty good lasting power, with traces of it's subtle highlight still showing at the end of a long day.

Topshop Beauty Gel Liner in Ink, £8, has a really lovely gel formula that is one of the easier gel liner formulas I've worked with. A true black with soft matte finish, it makes creating a precise line and those lusted-after cat eye flicks a breeze. Once applied it does set to a matte finish pretty quickly and doesn't smudge throughout the day, but I do find it dries quite a lot to the point where it can sometimes break away in fine lines creating a slightly uneven finish by the end of the day. If you're new to gel liners though, this is a really good one to start with!

Topshop Beauty Lip Polish in Honk, £8, has gorgeous slim black glossy packaging with a matte Topshop logo and lines for a nice contrast. The Lip Polish range has a gel-like formula which provides a glossy, lustrous finish. Honk is a lovely simple red, slightly more sheer than I expected but with pretty good colour pay-off nonetheless. The formula is actually pretty lovely and lightweight, feeling moisturising and comfortable on the lip - but I do find I need to reapply more often than with most lipsticks in my stash.

Are there any Topshop Beauty products you think I should give a go next? What are your thoughts on Topshop's ever expanding beauty range?

  2. Haha - love the name Honk! That's making me giggle. It looks lovely though, I always seem to forget that Topshop sell make up because I never go in there for clothes. MUST REMEMBER! Lovely post x

  10. I really want to try one of their cream blushers. I've only used their nail varnish before. So glad they're on Feel Unique now, as there are no Topshops local to me that stock the full makeup range xx

    1. My local Topshop doesn't stock any of the beauty range!! I'm glad they're on Feel Unique too, for that same reason :) xo
