I've noticed i always seem to gravitate towards the same brands whenever I'm looking to purchase new make up. I've been hearing great things about the Topshop make up line for over a year now so i thought I'd finally try one of their products. While browsing through Topshop in Manchester, i picked up two products from their line. Topshop make up is really hyped up so my expectations were really high.
The Topshop Lip Ombré in Astound (£) is a really cool idea for a product. I mean, I've seen it on catwalks and by make up artists so it would be nice to try some of these new make up 'trends' at home. In the end though, i ended up disappointed.
For me, the colours ended up being too 'barbie' pink which really doesn't suit me. I also think this should have come with a double ended lip brush for easy application too. The formula is good - it lasts on the lips and is really pigmented in both shades but i personally found it hard to work with. The colours were just very different and it was quite hard to blend them to make the difference less obvious without getting rid of the 'ombré' effect.
It could just be the shade but for me, this product was a miss. I'll definitely be trying on the other shades they have on offer as I'd love to be able to replicate this look at home.
