Topshop Makeup Range Finally Launches in Dubai!
The Topshop makeup range has finally landed in our pretty little city! I can't tell you how excited I was about this. Yes, I do realize that I probably need to get out more.
As part of Harper Bazaar Arabia's Fortnight of Fashion, Topshop held a small catwalk show at the Dubai Mall. After the show, my friend and I ran up to the store...OK Fine. I ran up as fast as I could and dragged my poor friend behind me. What can I say? I've been waiting for this launch for MONTHS. I kept seeing all the pictures and reading about all the British bloggers hauling the products and cursing them all under my breath.
I didn't get any pictures of the show because it was a really small one and I'm kinda new to this blogging thing, so I didn't really feel like whipping out my camera/phone and snapping away.
However....I did force myself to take a couple pictures of the makeup display. Guess this really goes to prove that as much as I try, my love of beauty will always trump my love of fashion.
The best thing was that the products had literally JUST been set up. As in, some of the testers hadn't even been opened yet! So I threw hygiene to the wind and went crazy.
The collection is gorgeous! Lots of bright colors, pretty glittery shades and rich lip and nail colors. The packaging looks really cute, too. My only complaint is that a lot of the packaging is white. That really confused me because white tends to get dirty really quickly, so it doesn't seem like the best option for makeup.
Anyway, I did buy a few products and I will take some swatches and post reviews as soon as I can.
Have any of you checked out the range? Are there any products you'd recommend?
Hope you guys had a great weekend,
Love and kisses!
