A very frivolous observation that might not be remotely interesting to any of you.
Newsflash: Topshop make-up is really good.
Really, really good, you guys!
I am currently wearing their lipsticks pretty much constantly. Yep, I am having a temporary break from tasteful Chanel in favour of garish Topshop - sometimes a bright lipstick seems like a necessity, to me at least.
I am a big fan of 'Infrared', which is actually more like a bright orange. I have also recently acquired a good dark/brick red called 'Hazard'. I like that the names sound a bit dangerous.
A cream blusher called 'Head Over Heels' (less dangerous) is currently perking up my sad winter face, which generally turns a fetching yellow tone during these grim, cold months. But it's the lipsticks that are really exciting me.
They are a perfect consistency - so much so that you can practically put them on without a mirror, even the strong colours. Also importantly, they come in a hardy little metal tube that can withstand a lot of jumbling around at the bottom of the hell that is my handbag.
Also, duh, they are cheaper than Chanel. Or Mac.
Public service announcement: over.
