Topshop Autumn/Winter 2010 Heavy Duty Collection Haul

November 16, 2010
By

A good friend of mine was in London recently and I had a small shopping list for her which included a few items from the Topshop AW10 Heavy Duty Collection.

I’d asked for Topshop Lipgloss in Gloom (£7.50), a sheer berry gloss with a toffee vanilla scent.

It contains rainbow sparkles that show up under the light and it applies smoothly without being too sticky. Although it isn’t pigmented, I do like the soft/bitten look it imparts.

I’d also asked for Topshop Bold Liner/Chunky Crayon in Graphite (£7), a fat eyeliner pencil.

A burnished pewter, this fatty pencil will make a nice base for some of my smokey shades, especially the browns.

The gold is a little too much for me but I think it will be subsumed by darker shades.

In addition, she’d purchased Topshop Eyeshadow Duo in Thunder (£9), a sturdy pewter case of two beautiful and complementary shadows in a teal and a gunmetal.

Lastly, my dear friend picked up Topshop Nails in Lead (£6), a complex blackened grey swirled through with metallic plum and green shimmer. I had expected it to be a pure leaden grey, so this was a complete surprise!

Total haul damage? Only £29.50 (≈ S$63)! ;)

      Hi Kas,

      You could buy it if it arrives here. I doubt it’d cost more than S$13, the regular price of their nail polish range.

    Nice haul! The lip gloss and the polish look exceptionally lovely. Any chance of Gloom being shown when applied? :)

    Hi Mag, let me guess, the dear friend who got you this haul must be Iris of Rouge Deluxe? ;) I enjoyed reading her blog too ;)

      Hi Esther,

      It wasn’t Iris but she has made several CPs for me before. I would’ve mentioned it if it was her. ;) :)
