Topshop has relaunched their beauty line and holy.moley. It’s beautiful. I wanted to do some swatches because I couldn’t find any online. I’m lucky enough to live in Los Angeles, where we have our very own Topshop store!
I stopped by and spent over two hours swatching all the new products. I felt like a kid in a candy store. It was absolute heaven. Shout out to Noella, the sweetest Topshop employee who showed me her favorites and also took my picture for me! Topshop, give this woman a promotion asap!
I took SO many photos that I had to divide this post up into four parts:
Part 1 | Foundation . Concealer . Powder
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 by the same manufacturers of some very well known, high-end brands and the pencils are produced in Germany (known for producing the best pencils). This means you are getting top quality at a very decent price.
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, to be honest, 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.
The Topshop sales staff did say they were anticipating the brand adding more shades with different undertones. I did have to combine shades to find matches for foundation and possibly concealer. They do have shades from fair to deep.

Longwear Liquid Foundation, 1 oz, $22, available in 12 shades.
Texture | Slightly thicker than I expected, blended easily, set to a dry touch, matte finish.
Packaging | glass bottle, black top, pump dispenser.
Longwear Liquid Concealer, $16, available in 8 shades. (photographed in the order they were laid out in-store)
Texture | liquid, thin, spreads easily, set to a soft matte finish. Built to full coverage (pictured below) with several swipes.
Packaging | plastic tube with wand applicator and sponge tip.
Longwear Pressed Powder, $19, available in 6 shades. (photographed in the order they were laid out in-store)
Texture | very silky, minimal powder kick up. Medium Coverage, adds color. Very impressed the the silkiness of these powders.
Packaging | pressed powder in pan, sleek metal compact.
The lighting was especially rough in this corner. Each shade looks lighter and warmer than it did in person. I still wanted to grab a picture so that you could get a general idea of each shade.
I hope this post was helpful!! I will do a review and try-on post soon, when my order comes in and then link that post here. For now, I wanted to get swatches up, 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 if you pick anything up from the Topshop Beauty relaunch! I want to hear what you get and what you think of Topshop Beauty.
