At the beginning of this year, Topshop Beauty disappeared from the shelves almost overnight. A collective outcry from make-up fans ensued; since its original launch in 2010, the brand had become our go-to for purse-friendly cosmetics.
However, the beauty world has changed in the last eight years, and Topshop Beauty’s original fans have, too. A brand overhaul was needed and the results do not disappoint. While the Topshop DNA remains – think experimentation and easy application – the products have been reworked and revamped for a 2018 audience.
The signature squiggles and dots that covered the original packaging have been replaced with sleek matte and metallic chrome casing, and what’s inside is just as exciting. While cult classics like the Rio Rio lipstick and Glow Pot Highlighter have made a welcome return, the range also introduces entirely new lines and updated long-lasting formulas to suit all skin types. Plus, all products have been certified as cruelty-free under the Leaping Bunny Program – the ‘gold standard’ for no animal testing.
Thanks to a whopping 200-plus product range, you’re truly spoilt for choice. This is what we’ll be buying…
Longwear Eye Crayon | £10
A butter-soft blendable formula that truly stands the test of time – this stuff does not budge. Scribble the khaki green across your lid for a modern smoky eye, line bottom lashes with chocolate brown for subtle definition, or put the peachy shade in the corner of the eye to brighten tired peepers.
Chameleon Eye Shadow | £12
For a grown-up approach to glitter, try this iridescent powder eye shadow. Use with fingers or a brush and apply dry for a sheer finish or wet for a more intense look.
Ultra Gloss in Glass | £10
A clever texture-transforming gloss that will make your make-up go further. Mix with any product to give it a glowy finish or apply to your cheekbones, brow bone and cupids bow for a shimmer-free highlight.
Invisible Powder | £15
Forget everything you once knew about chalky, cakey powder and try this. Much like the name suggests, this weightless and transparent powder keeps make-up in place and shine at bay.
Longwear Liquid Lipstick | £12
Topshop’s lipsticks are legendary, and for this relaunch they’ve expanded the collection and upgraded the formulas. We love the liquid lipstick; the weightless formula goes on smoothly and stays firmly put.
Glow Liquid Highlighter | £15
Cheat your way to lit-from-within skin with this pearlescent highlighter. Truly versatile, you can dot on the skin to add light to certain areas, or mix with your base or moisturizer for an overall glow.
Gloss Nail Polish | £7
High shine nails elevate any look, and this polish is just the ticket for an at-home mani-pedi. There’s 15 to choose from but our favourite is the on-trend emerald green – ideal for autumn.
Shimmer Powder Blush | £10
Sweep this subtle, light-reflective formula over cheeks for a natural outdoorsy glow.
