OK, so maybe orange and black aren’t the first two colors that pop into my mind when I think of the holidays (with the exception of that scary one with all the candy)…
But so what? These new Topshop holiday kits are bringin’ the cute! 🙂
Slap a Christmassy ribbon on one of these bad boys, and boom! — hello, stylish present.
Topshop is one of those makeup lines that flies under my radar a lot of the time, but they have some very cute things, and some of those are in these kits.
The Blush and Lip Duo in Innocent and Illicit ($24)
Topshop’s blushes are DOPE. They last like Italian marble and look totally natural on cheeks. They’re also why this set caught my eye.
It comes with Illicit, a nude, cool-toned rose cream blush with a dash of micro shimmer. Coincidentally, it was the shade I was wearing today when I went looking for an illicit encounter with my side-cat, Elsa (but I didn’t see her, boo!).
The set also comes with a creamy cool-toned pink lipstick called Innocent, which is super pretty and looks great with black smokey eyes. Sadly, it also seems to like hanging out in my lip lines…
The Mascara and Kohl Kit ($24)
For the eye makeup minimalist in your life, there’s Topshop’s 3D Curve Mascara, designed for natural-looking length and curl.
The set also comes with the Eye Kohl in Coal, a rich, deep black fab for smudging.
The Mini Lip Bullet Duo in Wine Gum and Motel ($20)
My perpetually parched pout digs these creamy lipsticks because they’re totally forgiving and don’t get caught on any flakes. Deep plum Wine Gum and nude Motel are two shades I can and will wear all year long.
These would be great “Oh, snap!” gifts for someone you may have accidentally missed the first time around on your Christmas list. Might be good to keep one or two under the tree, just in case, ’cause you never know who might come calling over the holidays, and you could be all, “It’s so nice to see you! I actually have something for you right here…” 😉
You can find these sets, along with the rest of Topshop’s limited edition holiday collection, waiting to beautify the babes in your life right now at Topshop stores and online.
