Elle Subscription - Topshop Gift

In a recent Elle issue i came across an advertisement for a subscription for only £18 for a whole year. 

That's 12 issues for £18 or £1.50 per issue, which is an amazing deal when it is usually £3.80 an issue. 
While i do love this magazine and buy it monthly this wasn't what caught my attention if I'm honest... it was the free Topshop Makeup gift that came with it. Makeup obsessed - guilty as charged, i know. 

The set included all their best sellers, including a few items that have been creeping up in my last few posts. 

Topshop Bronzer in Mohawke - A great matte shade for a light skin tone, set in a compact with a generously sized mirror. 

Topshop Lipstick in Charmed - A peachy coral shade that will suit most skin tones. I little cakey on my lips but that's because mine are super dry. (nothing a little 8hour cream or equivalent cant sort out) .

Topshop Nail Polish in AWOL - A near twin of Nails Inc Baker Street. Slightly less shiney but not a problem of your using a good topcoat. 

Topshop Glow Highlighter in Gleam - This is a rose-gold-ish shade. It goes on a nice warm flush though and blends well. I actually prefer this to the cult 'polish' shade. 

Topshop Magic Liner in Engraved - This is the only product in the set i don't really like, it smudges a lot and is a bit too runny which makes it difficult to apply in a neat line.

I have came to love most of these products and i use the bronzer almost daily having surpassed both my Nars Laguna and Bourjois Delice de Poudre.
