This is part three of my swatch posts for the new Topshop Beauty relaunch! This post covers their chameleon eyeshadows (a personal favorite product) and the shadow sticks, eye glitter shadows, and brow gels.
I took SO many photos that I had to divide this post up into four parts:
Part 1 | Foundation . Concealer . Powder
Part 2 | Lipstick . Lip gloss . Lip Liner
Part 3 | Eye Shadow . Shadow Sticks . Eye Glitter Shadows . Brow Gel
Part 4 | Highlighter . Face Gloss . Bronzer . Blush
If you aren’t familiar with Topshop beauty, it’s a full line of products: primers, foundations, concealers, blush, highlighter, eye shadows, brow products, lipsticks, bronzers and powders. The line is priced just above drugstore prices but below mid and high-end brands.
The best part of the line is that the products DELIVER. The quality is so good that it rivals or beats high-end brands. Most of the line is produced in Italy (known for producing high-end makeup formulas) and the pencils are produced in Germany (known for producing the best pencils).
Price | The entire range is priced between $13-$22 USD.
Packaging | The relaunched line has sleek metal and black packaging. The packaging feels luxurious and high-end, with a nice, moderate weight.
Cruelty-free | The entire line is certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny, which is super hard to get. This means no product or ingredient was tested on animals at any point of the production process.
Shop | You can shop Topshop Beauty online or in some stores.
Before we get to the photos, full disclosure, the lighting in Topshop was not great. I will add more as my order comes in and can take photos of my shades in better lighting. But I wanted to get the full range so that everyone can find their shade.

Longwear Eye Crayon, $14, available in 10 shades. (8 shades pictured – not pictured: Underdog, Neat)
Texture | extremely smooth glide, set within 60 seconds for longwear. Blendable for that minute until set.
Packaging | chubby crayon with cap, must sharpen.
Favorite shades | Art Club . Realm . Dark Horse
Chameleon Eye Shadow, $16, available in 4 shades.
Texture | smooth, silky shadow with micro glitter particles. These shadows are the Bees Knees, my friends. There truly is not other product like them, they give the coolest duo chrome color flip, while still looking sheer and wearable on the eye. I love them!
Packaging | domed shadow in an individual black plastic container with clear lid.
Favorite shades | Wax and Wane . Evolve
Glitter Eyeshadow, $14, available in 9 shades.
Texture | Smooth, highly pigmented powder base, with thick bits of glitter. This glitter is slightly heavier and eventually will fall a bit on to cheeks, even with a glitter glue primer (can’t really fight against gravity).
Packaging | black plastic square, with clear top.
Favorite shades | Rocket Man . Poolside . Amaze . Trip . Rare
Brow Definer, $14, available in 4 shades (only 3 are pictured).
Texture | pigmented smooth gel, sets to dry and slightly stiff. Topshop employee told me it held her brows up all day and has a super strong hold!
Packaging | thin tube, amazing micro brush.
I hope this post was helpful!! I will do a full review soon. I wanted to do swatches first, because Topshop does not allow returns on opened or used cosmetics, so you definitely want to get the right shade.
Leave me a comment below what you favorite shades are! I want to hear what you think.
