Topshop Makeup: Macaroon & Kick Start

17 March 2013




I have a real love/hate relationship with Topshop makeup. I think (on the whole) it's reasonably priced and good quality, but they discontinue everything I love (my favourite cream blusher, skin tint and lipstick in desert have all been discontinued), so I tend to stay away from the products. However, I was browsing in the store recently and couldn't resist.

I won't lie, the Kick Start palette was completely influenced by Lily's February favourites video. We all know that I love a good highlighter, and I have to say that this is a pretty good dupe, in terms of texture, for my beloved Gleam. It's creamy and smooth, and applies really nicely. I have to admit that I'm only really using the bottom two squares, but they're perfect for a subtle glow.

I've had my eye on Macaroon for a while. It's often raved about, but I honestly didn't realise how pretty it really is until I swatched it in store. This is the loveliest coral pink colour. It's not too bright that I'd be afraid to wear it to work (in fact, I will be tomorrow!), and I think it's a really flattering shade. Like all Topshop lipsticks, I really enjoy the quality of this - it's creamy, and lasts for a fair few hours before it needs reapplying. A lovely Spring shade.

What do you think of Topshop makeup? Are you sick of them discontinuing everything?

  10. I really like Topshop makeup and did a post about my collection last week. I do hate when brands discontinue products after you fall in love with them though!
