Apart from my eyes and lips this is basically my every day makeup. I love a good bargain and the blusher and bronzer here definitely are! As I have said in a previous post I usually use a Rimmel bronzer but thought I'd try and find a cheaper one which is just as good - an I think this is it! It is pretty similar to the Rimmel one; the right shade and not too glittery. I use this bronzer basically all over my face because my face is paler than my body, and I like to look like I have a 'healthy glow'. I also use some on my neck and collar bones - and even sometimes chest if it's on show! Just to make sure my face colour blends into that of my neck and body.
I only really use the bronzer in the Laura Geller compact and that is to contour, I find this darker, browner, more matte type of bronzer is better for contouring.
I've just started using the No7 Lash 360 mascara and I'm not initially over keen, it doesn't seem to give much impact... I will do a Mascara review soon and let you know my favourites.

I decided to test out my two Topshop makeup items together today because when I bought them I pictured they would look good together but am a but undecided. I don't think I suit pale eyes?! Which is a shame because I love the bright lips/no eye makeup look. I really like the 'Equinox' crayon, it literally is basically a gold crayon, you could write with it. But I decided to put it on my eye lids. It stays in place and not only works as eye shadow but I also put it under my eyes (just around the lash line) because I like the look of it and it seems to brighten my eyes. I'd definitely recommend this as a quick and easy answer to metallic eyes.
As for the Gloss Stick I am not overly keen. The colour is nice and it smells lovely, but I guess what I don't like about it is the fact that it's glossy, I probably shouldn't have bought the gloss stick! I just  don't think the gloss is very flattering - but perhaps if you have full lips it would be. It is also not ideal if you are going to be in photo's because in every photo of me wearing it I really don't think you can tell that I'm wearing lipstick that much!

  7. I have only tried the normal Topshop lipsticks and I really like them. The colour of the gloss stick looks very pretty.
