After the success of the launch of their own in-house make-up brand a few seasons back; Topshop have come back with this all new limited edition Sandstorm collection.
This capsule trend collection comprises of nine solid products including four individual must-have nail polishes (£5 each), which can also be brought in duo sets; metallic mousse eyeshadow, which is hard-wearing and durable (£8) and a selection of gloss’, lip shades, eye compacts and blushers.
Priced from £5-£12, this affordable array of make-up will start to filter into stores from mid-February through to March, and dependant on sales may become a solid part of their already growing make-up empire.
The look is centred on Sandstorm colours, iridescent of the Nevada desert and based on the ‘Burning Man’ Festival. Topshop’s Senior Designer, Lizzie Dawson was “inspired by the eclectic mix of sun bleached neons and tarnished, dusty metallics that create the landscape of the festival. I wanted this to translate into a unique and experimental mini spin-off trend range for the make-up collection, one that embodied the essence of S/S 11. The end result is a collection of one-off formulas in contrasting colours and textures that encapsulate the experimental, festival vibe.”
I would highly recommend the collection for festivals, as the long-lasting, smudge-effect means you won’t have to keep reapplying throughout your stay; and with prices so low you can afford to stock up.
