Mercury and the Moon

Short review today of two new offerings from the Topshop beauty counter; Crescent Moon Highlighter and Mercury rising Nail polish. I got these both a few days ago and really am loving them!

Mercury Rising (£6.50) is a gorgeous clear/black glitter polish with small matte black 'glitter' pieces and gold holographic glitter. This gives it s kind of molten-y effect, hence 'Mercury rising'. I just checked back on the Topshop site to try and find a link, but it doesn't appear to be on there any more? I don't know if they're temporarily sold out or what-hopefully it comes back!

And lastly Crescent Moon  (£10) is a Silver-gold with more creamy pink tones in than say their Sunbeam highlighter which is more yellow golf . So in my opinion this one is much more suited to the paler skinned people than the more tanned/ darker skinned people. (I hope than description made any sense- if you understood- 10 points to you!) I've used this a few times so far, and it is really pigmented so you don't need a lot, but I love it too! This one also seems to have sold out as can't find it anywhere on the website!

Very happy with these purchases (which were purchased with my gift card won from this Blogger competition I entered- post here, for those that care!).
What do you think of Topshop's make up range? Have you tried any? Are there any products your would recommend or any favourites?

    1. I know I think it's the only highlighter I've found that isn't ridiculously priced and doesn't make me orangey

  10. Nail varnish looks good, I'm always a bit wary of glittery nail varnish as the cheap ones can need like 3000 applications for like 3 little flecks of glitter, how annoying!
