Showstudio + Topshop + Make up

I actually try to avoid going to Topshop at lunch (yes, I am five minutes away from the Oxford Circus location, trust me, it's not healthy to be so close), becuase I will ALWAYS find something to buy. So my visits are now limited to the week of pay day.

Today, I went by to check out their new make up line which launched this week. Their colours are unique, with bronzy finishes in their nail polish and eye sticks, but what I love most is the packaging! The matte finish containers are decorated with hand drawn charcoal circles and dots. It looks really fresh and I think it will be a hit.

So, I bet you are wondering what Showstudio has to do with Topshop make up. Well, Showstudio and Topshop have collaborated on the make up launch. Showstudio has set up a wall to ceiling mirror that comments on your look. Yes, like in Snow White. So, you stand in front of this mirror and a minute later written on the top is a comment from an industry proffesional. Designer Louise Goldin, Lady Gaga's sylist Nicola Formichetti and make up artist Hannah Murray all are contributing to the comments. You can see the comments being made over at Showstudio.

There was no way I was going to stand in front of this massive mirror though, it was a bit intimidating. Here is a photo of the mirror from the showstudio blog:
