Ugly duckling made pretty (ish!)

I’m back!!

After spending the night up watching the results of the general election pour in (and watching my boss become an MP!) I had to go shopping for wedding card etc this morning. I was very much an ugly duckling with no make up and hair scraped back. Passing Topshop I remembered that their new make up range launched this week so went in to check it out. And I am smitten!

One of the assistants in store told me that the make up has been made by MAC and Dior. But the prices are at least half MAC prices – and I should know as I am a MAC addict.

Here below you can see the pieces that make up the core collection:

In some stores this week, make up artists have been offering customers makeovers with the new products. When asked, I could not refuse! This is how I looked after:

My favourite products from the collection were the skin glow which gives a healthy sheen, either under tinted moisturiser or foundation or alone – I had to grab a tube! The collection doesn’t have a foundation but a skin tint which I was also pleasantly surprised with. I also loved the lip polish which went on very easily and has lasted for a good few hours – I need to get this next time. 

If you’re interested in trying out the make up range, see below for instore events near you!

What do you think of the collection? Has anyone tried it out?

I’m off for a nap now!

More very soon. Love, SG

    I love the makeup line! Bought two nail polishes the other day – two coats of Pillar Box (bright red), although one would have been fine in terms of colour, and almost zero chips after a really quick/slightly careless application and two busy days – for £5 it's really amazing value! Good range of colours too, can't wait to try out the limited edition grey one I bought!
