Topshop: Dark Side of Nude

"Gothic goes glamorous with our decadent capsule make-up collection, Dark Side of Nude. Vampy-claret lips are teamed with metallic mushroom eyes and an icy pale base for a high shine and high impact look."

Another season, another new make-up collection for Topshop. This time, with Halloween right around the corner, the collection is encapsulating all things spooky incorporating it into their packing as well as the fabulous range of shades available. The collection has 9 luxury products to offer this time round including 4 nail polishes, 2 lipsticks, 2 eye palettes and a mascara:

             Eye palette in 'Prism'                                    Eye palette packaging                                   Eye palette in 'Atmosphere'
Each of these stunning eye palettes includes a trio of shades, ideal for making a smoky eye, and a double ended foam applicator. They are described as highly pigmented, buildable metallic colours with amazing colour pay-off which can also be used wet to intensify your look. 'Prism' consists of a silver, pink and black trio of shadows whilst 'Atmosphere' contains gold, green and purple.

Granite, Stardust, Panther, Thorn
The nail polishes in this collection are the same 'fast drying, extra long wear' formula as the existing ones and come in a truly amazing range of shades: 'Granite' a  dark charcoal grey, 'Stardust' a clear polish containing square flecks of gold glitter, 'Panther' a mixture of silver and black hexagonal shaped glitter suspended once again in a clear polish and finally 'Thorn', the most perfect deep blood red colour.

Fawn, Onyx, Wicked
Onto the final touches, the 2 new lipsticks come from opposite sides of the colour spectrum with 'Fawn' being a peachy nude and 'Wicked' a deep pinky/browny red, or burgundy for lack of a better word! Both boast a velvet finish to moisturise and nourish your lips whilst giving a vibrant slick of colour. As usual for Topshop, the mascara just comes in black with a slightly different shape brush and the packaging to match. It should keep your lashes looking long and fabulous, and can be built up for extra volume and va va voom!

As a finishing touch, the brand have filmed a make-up tutorial featuring Hannah Murray creating  a fresh faced but fitting look on the model to fit in with the collection. Feel free to watch this below!

What do you think of the new collection? Will you be buying any of it and trying out the above look?
