Topshop's make up get a lot of attention all over the blogosphere, but apart from the nail varnishes, I have never really paid it much attention. I remember when Topshop's make up was released, and Topshop making a big song and dance of it, to the point where I popped in to my then local Arndale Topshop the day it was released , and I was massively disappointed, a very meek offering of average coloured eye shadows and nail varnishes the fell in the "slightly too expensive for what it is" category and I slowly forgot about it completely.
Since then they have brought in a broad range of everything from eye liners to highlighters. The latter caught my attention for a couple of weeks, but every time I told myself I have enough highlighters and a 80% full Girl Meets Pearl at home. This was until I was looking at it, again, one weekend and decided that it had to come home with me!
Topshop's Sunbeam highlighter. A beautiful pressed powder in a shimmery gold.
It comes in the usual white and black packaging with little "scribble stars" over the top. I think the reason I have never paid much attention to Topshop make up, I am not a massive fan of Topshop's packaging choices, I've always thought they look a little, well, cheap. It feels really unfair to say that, but it's just how I see it. For example, there isn't a mirror which would make it annoying to take out with you, but this is obviously a minor issue.
Although it looks like a fairly soft colour in the pan, its actually highly pigmented. You need a tiny amount of the product. For what I've done on the back of my hand I used one tiny brush stroke. It says on the box it's for body and face, but I think that it may be a little bit much on the body. It's such a lovely gold colour, makes me think of summer days!
I happy with it, it's really beautiful colour, and although I am not a massive fan of the packaging it's what's inside that counts! I would say I would probably buy it again, but it will probably last forever!
It retails for £9.00 in any larger Topshop store.
