Not a Beauty Blogger But... FREE TOPSHOP!

All make up by Topshop.  Liner in 'Ink', Blush in 'Prime Time', Eye palette in 'Constellation', Brighten in 'Moonlight' & Nail Polish in 'Treasure'

We all know I am not a beauty blogger.  When I began blogging at the beginning of this year, I ended up drifting towards the beauty side.  Oh, beauty blogging, my dearest frienemy.  I soon realised, it wasn't for me. Trying my hardest not to be hypocritical but I do not personally enjoy reading blog post after blog post about make up and skin care products that I can't afford and will never buy but that's not to say I don't like the idea of beauty blogging and all the fantastic tutorials.  Ergo, I do love getting new beauty products and being able to rant and rave about them somewhere!

   I'm not going to go on a review the products (but I can if you comment below on which product you would like to be reviewed) but I will tell you that I got these pretty products as the gift for my 6 month Elle subscription.  Hurrah!  If I'm totally honest with you, this free gift (worth quite a bit of money) was the part of the offer that won me over.  But obviously the £10 for 6 months was a fantastic deal too.  It was supposed to come with Topshop's lippie in 'Whimsical' but I don't know what happened there because it didn't arrive...      Nonetheless, I think my favourite thing I received was this nail polish, it's just beautiful!  I've been fancying the metallic nail trend for a while but haven't gotten around to buying any.  You can't tell in these pictures but in real life the colour is just really subtle - it's like a metallic style nude with a tinge of orange with the way it pretty much fades into my hands (not that my hands are orange...I'm not sure how to explain it!  This is why I don't normally blog about beauty...!)  I'm also super gutted that all the nails on my right hand are a little longer and nicer than all of them on my left but due to being right handed, a left handed picture taking experience would not have been especially enjoyable.
    I already had the eye liner brush, but what's one more?  A freebie is a freebie right?!  I can't wait to use more of the products! Eeeeee!


  1. Ooh I want an Elle subscription anyway, what a great free gift!xx

  2. The pink blush is such a pretty colour : )
    some lovely freebies! xo


    1. I know! Got to make sure it's blended in or I could look a tad odd...

  3. that eye pallete looks lovely, especially the pinky colour, the nail colour is gorgeous, such a nice colour :) xx


  4. Such a fab freebie! I always wait until there's good offers until I take out or renew my mag subscriptions, I like getting these wee bargains. That polish is beaaaautiful.
