Our prayers have been answered. No Stellar towers didn’t receive black Chanel 1.55 handbags for everyone in the audience, however when news came in that we only have a week to wait until the long-awaited Topshop makeup range is available, we just got a little bit giddy. Topshop are to launch their makeup collection on May the 5th at the St.Stephen’s Green Topshop store with an exciting four-day event, with make up artists showing customers the product and application techniques.
Topshop has always been directional, combining fashion-forward items of clothing with trend setting accessories to create an overall shopping experience. Lizzie Dawson, Topshop Designer tells us that, “‘From the start we wanted to create a range that would appeal to all yet have the uniqueness customer expects from Topshop.’ It will be interesting to see if they can live up to expectations with the makeup range.
So far, so good. The colours are bright and fun, the textures are gorgeously blendable, we’re sold. Plus with rumours circulating that the pigment is up to MACs standard we can’t contain the excitement.
The best thing about this collection seems to be the kitschy packaging, nothing less was expected. Also, prices range from €6 to €20 for a collection of 97 items in the core range and then in true Topshop style there is going to be limited edition ranges and its even rumoured celeb makeup artists collaborations.
Wowser. Over-excited? We are.
