Why not give the gift of beauty this Christmas, with TOPSHOP Beauty's new limited edition gift sets?
I'll be honest, I've never tried TOPSHOP make up before, but I was pleasantly surprised by the amazing quality of these cosmetics from a high street fashion brand. The most noticeable and recognisable features of TOPSHOP beauty are the cute patterned packaging. These gift sets have been placed in these funky coloured, handy and re-usable plastic wallets/sleeves which would be ideal for university/college work or for travelling afterwards. I was sent a few of the sets to try out, so thought I'd review them for you...
TOPSHOP Beauty Lipstick and Blush Wine Gift Set* which contains two full sized products inside a zip up neon green PVC case; a blush and lipstick. The blush - "Head Over Heels" is a pinky-peach cream blush, unfortunately its shown up more pink than peach in my photo, but once blended it just gives a subtle, natural looking glow. Being a cream blush I wasn't expecting much for staying power, and it lasts a few hours. What better to go with a natural look blush than a bold, dark lip colour? The Lipstick in "Beguiled" is a perfect contrast...It is a deep wine shade, right on trend for the A/W months of 2013! The finish is semi-matte, but doesn't feel or look drying on the lips. It has a pretty decent staying power, even with eating and drinking, around 4 hours. I totally forgot to swatch this kit, so I hope my descriptions are good enough. This kit comes in at a great price of £12, a perfect stocking filler or Secret Santa gift :)
TOPSHOP Beauty Mini Nail Trio* As the name suggests, this gorgeous little kit contains 3 miniature nail polishes, perfectly selected for the Christmas party season. "Magpie" (left) is a holographic glitter top coat, great for adding a bit of sparkle to any of your favourite nail colours. "Dazzle" (middle) is a deep metallic red with slightly golden undertones (you can see my Instagram picture for when I wore this on bonfire night here). Finally "Gypsy Night" contains small rainbow glitters, suspended in a black Jelly like base. This kit is an absolute steal at £14, compared to purchasing each shade separately.
There are a great selection of gifts available from TOPSHOP this year. The prices range from as little as £5, up to £40 for the "Best Of" Kit!
Why not have a browse yourself? You might find one you'd like to add to your Christmas list, or purchase for the beauty addicts and fashionistas in your life...
