I Can't Believe I Actually Won: Mixed Gems Beauty Topshop Instagram Winner

Leave a Comment

So I was lucky enough to win 1 of 10 Topshop Makeup sets in a competition by Rose at Mixed Gems . To enter you just had to give Rose your favourite beauty tip ever. My entry was my homemade cleansing balm using coconut oil, polysorbate 80 to emulsify and then a dash of essential oil so it smells gorgeous. I couldn't believe that I had won and am ashamed that I haven't put this post up sooner *slaps my hand*

My little goodie bag of Topshop goodies were:

Brow Palette in 'Fetch' - Perfect for light to medium brunettes and contains a darker wax to apply first and then a lighter powder over top to set the brow and add more precision. This tiny compact box also contains a spoolie, tweezers and a doubled ended brow brush so if you forget your brow brushes you'll have everything you need in one place.

Kohl in 'Sable- A deep chocolate brown that when warmed up glides on with ease and creates a gorgeous brown smoky eye and is long lasting.

Glow Stick in 'Spotlight' - This reminds me of a more subtle NARS Orgasm and when applied blends easily and gives a subtle shimmer to the skin without looking like you've been dipped in a vat of glitter.

Eyeshadow in 'Galaxy' - This is one of the mono shadows in a beautiful warm medium brown with a bronze and gold undertone. I adore this shadow and when applied in these pictures, no base was used so you can tell how good the pigment is. The shadow is super silky in texture and blends like a dream

Glow in 'Gleam' - Every blogger and their mum has raved about this mousse/ cream highlighter. It's classed a cream but I find it a lot denser than that. This is  a beautiful champagne highlighter with a rose gold glow and I applied to the top of the cheekbones, down the nose and above the cupids bow.

Lipstick in 'Nevada'- I feel like this pale peachy nude just washes me out a bit and the formula is very opaque but sits in all the wrinkles and doesn't do me any favours at all really. I am fan of other Topshop lippies, but this doesn't really ring my bell.

Doe-Eyed Lashes Mascara- This has a super fat bristle brush and separates lashes whilst giving them volume. For me this is an everyday mascara and really like the look of my lashes.

Here is the makeup in action (I am also wearing Essence 18hr Foundation, Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer, Maybelline Master Sculpt and NYX blush in 'Dusty Rose')

I'm so grateful for Rose choosing me as a winner and love all of my goodies.

Topshop makeup is widely available and their Gloss Sticks are SO good- check out my review HERE and HERE
