Yes, we can finally reveal to you, the not so well kept secret that our favourite high street store- TOPSHOP!- is releasing a makeup range. The range will be in stores and online from May 5th, and boasts an almost bewildering array of colour choices and styles, including some very on trend varnishes and some cute crayon eye colours.

A quick peruse of the range proved it was more extensive than previously thought, as the range should suit all skin tones ads they've been very careful with their colour choices.

The products will retail from £4-£10 and I was impressive with the quality, as I was worried they might be pretty but not very well pigmented. The eyshadow duos are complementary and they've thrown in some shades that verge on neon (which makes me happy) as well as some lovely textured eye crayons that glide on the skin without dragging. These were really delicious to use and left a thick line of colour on my hand (see image below the jump).

I was also impressed by the consistency of their liquid liner as it left a fine black line and was very easy to control. I didn't get to try the lipsticks (yet) but noticed a seriously hot pink and hot red amongst the colours, as well as some more neutral tones.

The packaging is quite pretty with a matte spots and stripes adorning the tubes and palettes and they have a nice finish to them, with strong catches (always important).

Watch this space for a full review soon.
