Finally, fashionistas and design geeks will have something to talk about, thanks to Topshop’s latest makeup collection. The cheekily designed packaging features playful spots and stripes, hand-drawn using the line’s kohl pencils. “Using the products to create the dots, doodles, and patterns reflects the light-hearted approach to trying different looks,” says Karin Kleen, a designer at the British brand.
“I would have to say our Cream Blush in Neon Rose. It is the perfect shade of neon coral, ideal for a dewy look on the go! Also, my favorite lipstick is the candy pink Brighton Rock!”
