Today was a big day for Topshop, as their limited edition make-up range in collaboration with designer Louise Gray launched in stores and online! Since I had a day off, and decided to spend it in the Bull Ring, it was a no-brainer. This collection is inspired by wild (but still very girly) colours, and although we are slowly but surely shifting into autumn, I think it's come just right to brighten up the last sunny (or rainy, for us in England) days. Let's have a look at what I picked!
Moving to my weakness - lipsticks. I'm not too much of an orange lipstick girl, so Mexican Wave was an easy one to pass, but when I came across the lipstick in Legend, the damage had to be done. How pretty & arty is the packaging?!
Legend is a bright almost neon pink lipstick, which you can't find in the core collection of Topshop make-up. Sometimes I think they make their lipstick shades just too similar to be really able to appreciate (and recognize) the difference (I'm talking about you Infrared & Firecracker!), but this is a truly exceptional pink, I think. It's just SO in your face! This lippy costs a tenner, which is quite a lot, but I'm happy I picked it up as I've been enjoying wearing brighter lipsticks lately!
Then I noticed a sign saying that if you buy 2 make-up products (at least 1 from the new limited collection), you get a GWP (well why not, right?!). So I picked up Pillow Talk (£8), as I've been eyeing it for good few weeks and would crave sooner or later anyways. I'm telling ya, one day I'll have the biggest Topshop lipstick collection world has ever seen, ha!
The GWP (until stock lasts!) is a really pretty compact mirror by Louise Gray. I realized I don't really have a mirror in my handbag, so this comes handy. It's a slide one as well, so you only need one hand to open it - aaaaah, very clever!
As I used my student card, I only paid £16 for both lipsticks and got a little mirror on the top of it. It ain't my budget-sort of shopping, I have to say, but once in a while, a little treat is in order, right? (yeh, I do still feel a little guilty for spending that much on lipsticks, woops!)
What do you think about the new Louise Gray & Topshop collaboration?
Are you gonna be picking up some bits?
