After a quick browse around Topshop, the make up counter caught my eye with a collection I'd been wanting to try - Sisters of the New Moon!
The first product I'd decided to buy was the Magical Lip Tint in Crystal, £9.
In the tube, the lipstick looks very sheer and glittery, almost like it's one of those fake plastic ones you played with when you were little (or was that just me?), I love that about it! From the swatch you can see it leaves a very pale pink shimmer which made me think it wouldn't leave much pigmentation on my lips.. but was I wrong!
It leaves the prettiest, most subtle pink stain on your lips. I wore it for work today and didn't have to reapply! (Which I was thankful for - I'd forgotten my make up bag..) You can build the colour up to become a darker shade by applying more, which would make the colour suitable for a night out too! The lipstick itself feels quite moisturising, more like a balm than a lipstick!
The second product I decided to try was a bit of a strange choice for me - the Lash Catcher Mascara, £10!
I have THE shortest, thinnest, straightest eyelashes known to man, and no matter what I try to do with them I can't make them look longer! Therefore I tend to stick to my usual No. 7 mascara as I've given up on products that promise to lengthen and volumise lashes. So when I decided to buy this product I actually shocked myself, I hadn't even checked to see what the brush was like!
I was relieved to discover it was a bristle brush as the plasticky ones just don't work with me!
The brush collected quite a bit of excess mascara and the tip which needed to be wiped off, and when I put it on my lashes I ended up with mascara all over my eyelid! But maybe I just wasn't used to the new brush.
My left eye is with one coat of the mascara, and my right with no coats at all (see what I mean about my lashes?) - look at the difference! For a start my lashes are actually visible, and they look longer than with my usual mascara! I didn't curl my lashes before I put this mascara on, so if I try curling them first maybe they'd be even longer! Overall, I am really pleased I decided to purchase this mascara, I love the overall result of my lashes. Unfortunately it's limited edition so I may have to purchase some more!
Have you tried anything from this new collection?
