Topshop Smoke & Mirrors Collection

With the arrival of Autumn, Topshop has released their latest makeup collection, Smoke & Mirrors. The limited edition 11 piece collection offers an assortment of muted autumnal colours inspired by the high glamour of the early 70s. Think dewy sunkissed skin, sooty alluring eyes framed by black velvet bambi lashes and delicate pink lips.

Eye Palette - £12.50
I love the opulent amber packaging of the eye palette with the geometric patterns reminiscent of 1970s wallpaper. The palette contains 2 lighter highlight shades as well as a plum and smokey brown shade for a more autumnal look. I love a touch of plum to accentuate my blue eyes so this is the perfect palette to take on the go, complete with a mirror.

Lip & Eye Pencil Set - £10
The lip & eye pencil set contains a sooty black kajal pencil for soft and smokey eyes and a muted brown lip pencil. Both pencils are soft and creamy for easy application and are long lasting. The lip pencil is the perfect natural shade to pair with dramatic eyes.

Nail Polish - £6
A beautiful baby pink. It looks more mauve in the packaging but dries as a brighter pink once applied. I'll be wearing this shade this weekend for cocktails and dancing!

I'm also keen to try out the lipstick Pillow Talk from the Smoke & Mirrors collection...




Will you be purchasing anything from the new collection?
