The collection features 13 key pieces ranging from eyeshadow mousse through to nail polish duos, all in on trend seasonal colours which have trickled down from the catwalk beauty trends for this Spring.
After swatching most of the collection onto my hand I plumped for the lovely lipgloss stick in Ablaze £8. The lipgloss stick is a sheer moisturising lipgloss in a stick formula which can either be applied to bare lips or layered on top of lipstick for added shine.
In the tube, Ablaze looks far more terrifying than it really is, and when applied it gives a very subtle coral red sheen. As someone who does not usually covet lipgloss, I have to eat my hat and admit that this is completely fabulous. It’s not sticky, its so moisturising, it lasts for hours, looks natural, can be applied without a mirror and can literally be slung in my bag as it goes with anything and everything.
I have to say it is everything that I want a lip stain to be – sheer, natural and just like an improved version of your own lips, only this is far more moisturising than any lip stains I have tried in the past.
The lipgloss stick also comes in Glisten, an imposing looking deep pink in the tube but which when applied is rosy, subtle and wearable. I hope Topshop consider introducing these lipgloss sticks as part of their permanent line with a larger colour range, otherwise it looks like a bulk buy is in order!
