In case you ever need to spot your makeup from a mile away…

Topshop Lipstick and Blush Set

BRIGHT ENOUGH FOR YA!?

Yeah…the pouch that comes with Topshop’s $24 Lipstick and Blush Set is bright.

Yellow highlighter bright. Bright like a beacon of makeup hope to guide you through troubled waters…

I want to stamp “FOR EMERGENCY USE ONLY” across the front and keep it in my go bag under the bed, along with El Hub’s machete and SAS Survival Handbook.

I’m pretty sure El Hub will say that the makeup is extraneous, but he’ll have to adjust. He doesn’t know it yet, but you better believe we’re making room for blush and lipstick.

The tiny two-piece kit comes with one neutral pink cream blush and an orangey red lipstick. Classic colors that don’t appear to belong in such cray-cray packaging, but whatevs. There’s some good stuff here.

There isn’t anything I don’t like about Morning Dew, the cream blush in the kit, and I’m finicky about cream blushes. On bare skin, foundation, layered on top of powder — it handles any face makeup I throw at it, and it always looks smooth, never patchy. It even manages to last all day long, too.

Two more thumbs up for Rio Rio, the red lipstick. Smooth and pigmented, it fades slowly over 4-5 hours to a super pretty matte stain.

You may want to pair it with a lipliner, though, to keep it from straying outside of your natural lip line, because it is very creamy. If you can, try the Pro Longwear Lip Pencils by MAC. They’re long-lasting and comfortable, and if you’re looking for a shade rec, I really like Rio Rio with Kiss Me Quick.

Just add fatty-bo-batty cat eyeliner lines and go! :)

The kit might be a little hard to track down outside of a Topshop store, unfortunately, but it is currently available online. You might also be able to find the blush and lipstick separately at your local Nordstrom store, since Nordies carries some clothes and beauty products in the Topshop line.

I didn’t see the kit on the Nordies website, but they do carry a bunch of the lipsticks ($16 each) and cream blushes ($12). Check ‘em out if you can because a lot of the colors look fab.

PRICE: $24
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Topshop stores and also online

    I’m kind of obsessed with neon and I would probably buy this for the pouch alone.

    Pretty red lipstick! Probably wouldn’t use the cream blush though it’s too light for me. I rarely wear my cream blushes from Mac, not a fan of cream blushes either. We just got Top Shop at Macy’s near me, I’ll check out the makeup next time.

  5. Amy says:

    Ew, not here for that neon. I’m not a fan of neon in general though (unless it’s cute workout clothing). Wonder why they picked that color pouch. Either way, the blush looks nice! I think I’ll have to invest in a cream blush soon, to alternate with my powder.

    I really REALLY wish TopShop make up was available in the US, like in Ulta stores. I don’t have a Nordstrom here in Nebraska. :(
