TOPSHOP EYESHADOW IN 'WAX & WANE'

Just before Christmas I treated myself to some beauty bits from Topshop. I'd never bought anything from their beauty range before but after hearing nothing but good things about it, I wanted to try it out. I picked up a gorgeous lipstick and this pretty little eyeshadow in shade 'Wax & Wane'.


I'd never seen anything like this before let alone owning any similar colours; I knew it had to be mine. It retails at £9 which I thought was quite expensive for a single eyeshadow when you can easily purchase a whole pallet for the same price. Even though I thought it was pricey I couldn't leave it and it came home with me that night to be vigorously tested over the next few months.

I love this colour, it's such an unusual shade but it's so pretty and I literally I feel like a fairy whenever I'm wearing it. Depending on how it catches in the light it can look pink/ purple/ blue or orange. I know something like that wouldn't be to everyone's taste but I can't get enough of it. I feel like it really suits my skin tone too, although I can see this being a very universal product that would look nice on most complexions. 

One thing I love about this product is how long it lasts. I can do my make up in the afternoon for a night out and it would be still very much intact the next morning if I forgot to take it off. Saying that it is very easy to remove and doesn't stain the skin at all like some eyeshadows. 
It is also a very pigmented product. A little goes a very long way and you don't have to smother your eyelid in product to get a decent result. This also means it's less likely to crease on your eyelid and you won't have to repurchase it every five minutes.

I really love wearing this product, it's a very versatile colour that is wearable all year round. Although it's a little bit pricey it more than makes up for this in how long it's lasts and it's quality. I have gotten so much wear out of it and I would not hesitate to buy it again. Overall I'd give it a 10/10 as I really can't fault it!

    1. Ahh that's the only problem with the Topshop stuff, it can be quite pricey although they do have sales a lot so you might be lucky and pick some sale items up! I'll try and find a link for it for you xxx
