Hope you’ve all had a good week so far! I’ve been hunched over my sink today doing hand washing as my washing machine is broken and all day I’ve been praying for sunshine so it will dry. Take it from me don’t hand wash jeans! Anyway lets get into today’s makeup review…
Like lots of high street shops, Topshop has a makeup line which I have been eyeing up every time I walk through the door. In today’s society you can’t escape the lure of makeup wherever you shop! After the disappointment of my Kylighter having poor pigmentation my fingers were crossed for a better result with this Topshop Highlighter (£12) in the shade Crescent Moon.
The packaging is quirky, it’s not my favourite and I wouldn’t see it and think I need that… but it’s different and I like it. The plastic is thick so I’m sure it will be well protected if you’re planning on traveling with this. The soft peachy champagne highlight is really pigmented like I was hoping for and for even more intensity it can easily be built up. In the light it has a pinky peach shift that is perfect for my pale skin, gold reflects make me look a bit odd so I tend to avoid those.
Surprisingly the use by date for this product is 30 months! For makeup that’s a lot longer than most, due to hygiene purposes things like mascara should be thrown away after two months whereas face products are a bit more hygienic and can last a year or so, but I’ve never seen a use by recommendation of two and half years before. That means I’ll definitely hit pan and get my money’s worth. Overall I’m pretty happy with this highlighter, it’s affordable and gives me the desired highlighted effect I was looking after. Once again budget makeup is giving higher end brands like Kylie Cosmetics a run for their money.
