Pretty Pastels | Topshop Cosmetics

So it turns out sticking to my new year's blogging resolution didn't quite work as planned, and I hang my head in shame. I posted twice in the whole of February. Twice. Bombarded with final major college projects, 6 days of work a week and last (but not least) boyfriend duties, February wasn't exactly 'my month' blogging-wise. 

I'm determined not to let my blog slip any more, so here I am, hopefully back to 3 posts a week! I've got a lot of stuff to share from my absence, but first I'd like to introduce you to a few little impulse buys I ended up walking out of Topshop with...


It's becoming impossible to go into Topshop without walking out with something from the makeup stand. It's simply too pretty to ignore. On a horribly rainy, cold day, I decided to treat myself to these bits to try and get myself hyped up for springtime. I picked up one of their Velvet Finish Lipsticks in 'Petal' and a gorgeous pastel nail varnish in 'Occupational Therapy'.


I am a massive, self-confessed Topshop lipstick fan. Their Velvet Finish Lippys boast one of the nicest formulas I've ever tried, they're lovely and pigmented, aren't at all drying on the lips and are so silky soft when applied. 'Petal' is a gorgeous baby pink, my kind of perfect spring/summer shade, and it's the perfect finish for a natural 'no make up, make up' look. I can see this becoming a staple of mine.


I was absolutely torn between purchasing this shade or another gorgeous pinky nude, however I seem to lack pastel shades in my nail collection, and this was a winner. It's the perfect pastel lilac colour which can be worn sheer with one coat or built up for a more opaque finish. I only own one other bright orange Topshop nail varnish, so it's nice to expand the collection a bit more! 

I wish I could have swatched the nail varnish for you but, to be honest, no one wants to see my scruffy, stubby nails at the moment -  they just won't do it any justice! 
(Note to self: Buy a nail wheel).

Topshop, you've well and truly exceeded my expectations once again. So pretty.

    1. Now that you mention it, that's exactly what it's like! MAC supposedly make Topshop makeup anyway, so it would make sense! xxx
