REVIEW: Topshop Smokey Eye Palette

Thursday 20 December 2012

Hey Ladies,

I'm all about a bronze smokey eye, black/grey ones look too harsh on me & to be seasonal make my eyes look like 'two piss holes in the snow'. My beloved Mac bronze eye shadow recently passed away when it tumbled onto my kitchen floor (I'm holding back the tears whilst typing!) so I wanted a replacement & found this palette when I was late night shopping in Topshop.

Topshop Smokey Eye Palette in Tawny
The shades are all complimentary & come in a really cute palette which is nice & compact. The pigmentation is excellent & the eyeshadows themselves are nice, soft & easily blend-able. For the day time the two lightest shades are lovely & brightening & then for an evening look you can blend the darkest colour through the socket & along the lash line (Like I did in the picture).

All in all I think this is a really nice palette especially when it costs £12. Topshop makeup never fails to impress me and I think this would make a really nice little stocking filler if you're after last minute gifts (it also comes in a more black/grey option)

What are your favourite Topshop makeup items??


  1. This a lovely little palette. Great for travelling.
    I have about 11 different eyeshadow palettes in my collection though, so I dont think I need to add another (even though the shades are so nice!)

  2. I love topshops hilighter in sun beam. I also love all their nail polishes! especially the glitter ones. I love your blog by the way.

    I’ve recently started a blog that consists of mainly drustore makeup reviews and my favourite beauty bitd and bobs. I’m finding quite hard to start it up and it would mean the world to me if you had a little look at it!
