Inflencers (And Topshop) Vs Highstreet.
I am truly shocked by how make up trends change with time. How ‘trends’ change from the ultimate flick to the subtle nude lipsticks we all know and love. With so many tutorials at our finger tips we are in an age where make up has the ability to make people feel and look our best. Recently there has been an ever evolving chance for fashion brands and influencers to reach out into the Beauty industry.
Ever growing opportunities, its no surprises that the quality of products have sky rocketed, with many influential companies failing short. In some cases I find myself being drawn to influencers/ fashion branded products; more so than high street beauty brands.
‘With products rivaling the cost of the high-street influencer’s and alike are proof that no matter the budget, everyone deserves quality’.

Tanya Burr is a world renowned influencer with an insanely loyal fan base- the best kind in my opinion. It was no surprise when Tanya Burr cosmetics launched in Superdrug, it struggled to stay on the stores. Since Tanya has grown her empire and most recently launched, my personal favorite lipstick- ever, Bear Hugs.
Bear Hug, is stunning. The perfect peachy nude for day to day wear. I love using this product over a clear lip balm to create a stunning peach gloss effect. The colour last well into the day and only fades slightly when drinking copious amounts of coffee.
Being highly affordable(£6.99), Tanya Burr Cosmetics are really pushing the boundaries of influence cosmetics. I have seen so many reviews on many of Tanya Burr Cosmetic’s, and I am so happy to say that I am a complete convert to this brand.
The only downside is that Superdrug tend to sell out of the brands products quite a lot, so visiting in stores will always be a little lack luster. Although, with many stores struggling to keep products on shelves, surely that is justification enough for Tanya Burr Cosmetics to expand more than ever.

Topshop are really taking over the world. From LA to London Topshop have launched a fantastic affordable cosmetic line with outstanding products. One of the massive issues I have with stores selling cosmetic products in stores is that many products get opened; sometime it can be really hit and miss, sometimes your lipstick has been swatched on someone else.
Topshop is obviously an incredible British Brand, being shown on LFW and creating stunning campaigns. Embracing ‘trends’ in both fashion and beauty, Topshop is really a cut above the rest. Having one finger on the pulse at all time- no one can discredit the ever evolving brand.

Topshop eyeliner both Kohl and Liquid are amazing, especially if you prefer a stiff wand as I do. The colour payoff is amazing. Many Liquid and kohl eyeliners can become washed out or faded. This budgeted Topshop eyeliner completely opposite; it is so dark and lasts a long time. Neither of these products are water proof, so they will move when moisture is around. But for the price, what did you really expect?
Real Techniques, any product.

Real Techniques is a brand owned by the most inspiring influencers I have ever had the pleasure of watching. Sam and Nic Chapman have really introduced the idea of quality, yet affordable products. I have not (and doubt I will) found a poor Real Techniques product yet.
Real Techniques Miracle Make up Sponge is truly incredible. Varying different angles allow for the sponge to reach areas which a brush would find difficult. The microfiber foam soaks up any access coverage leaving your face flawless and not cakey. I find rinsing the sponge in water really helps with blending products together.
Pixiwoo is an amazing YouTube Channel and I am so happy that no matter the challenges they have in life really are building an empire which many can only dream off.
