I Love Gold

Topshop Highlighter in Sunbeam

I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been in to Topshop to swatch this Highlighter in Sunbeam. It’s so pretty and thought it was about time I bought it. I don’t own many highlighters and this is a really lovely gold toned one. I have a few liquid ones like the Benefit Highbeam & Moonbeam. They are both really nice but I needed a powder one and I’d always had my eye on this one.

Topshop Highlighter in Sunbeam

It comes in a pretty compact – the star pattern on the lid is so sweet. The white and black design is simple and just lovely. There is no mirror which is a little annoying but it’s not a deal breaker. The product itself is so pigmented and beautiful. It adds a lovely glow to face or body. It gives the top of your cheeks a beautiful highlighted effect –  the light just catches the gold and reflects off your cheekbones so your skin looks bright and healthy.

Topshop state that this can be used on face & body – which is perfect. This gold shimmer looks fab lightly dusted over your collar bones. Lightly is the key to this highlighter. As it’s so pigmented, product stays put and you really only need a small amount. Less is more. You get a lot of product for your money as 6.5g will cost you £10 this is available in Topshop stores and in their online store. I can see this lasting me a long time.

This has a really nice shimmer to it and as I said the gold colour is highly pigmented and is stunning on the tops of your cheeks. It has been my go to highlighter this month and I am pleased I finally gave in and bought it.

I’m really impressed with Topshops makeup range. I’ve picked up a few things now like their Cream Blush, Nail Polish, Lipsticks and this lovely Highlighter and I must say I love them all. What have you picked up from Topshop and what have you been enjoying?

NARS Foreplay Blush

The lovely Grace from all that slap kindly picked this beautiful NARS Foreplay Blush Palette up for me & I thought i’d take some quick photos of it before I head to Amsterdam (I will be there from Tues-Sat).

I’ve heard mixed thoughts on this blush but from what I’ve seen so far I’m love with it. I haven’t had any real chance to use it so I won’t talk too much about the ins and outs of it. I just wanted to show you how lovely it was. I will do a proper review when I return from Amsterdam on Saturday.

The palette has 4 shades in and they are -Peach Matte Blush, Gold Highlighting Blush, Pink Matte Blush, Orgasm Blush. I do have Orgasm already and use that colour a lot. I’m most excited for the matt pink shade and the gold shade. I’m always on the look out for a good highlighter to add a glow to my cheekbones. The other colours are pigmented and are a great quality. As you would expect with NARS products.

Ooooo look at it in all its pretty glory. This will be so handy for travelling, I really like the size its quite compact but still giving you a good amount of each blush. You won’t need to bring any other blushes/highlighters. Perfect.

You can buy this from SpaceNK for £39.50 and you get 10g of product. Let me know if you have tried it or are thinking about purchasing it. I will be taking it with me to Amsterdam and I’m looking forward to using it.
