Topshop Makeup - A massive fail?

Has anyone else had any problems with Topshop's makeup range?

On Saturday I purchased 2 of their cream eye shadows and an eye liner.

When I came to try them at home, the cream eye shadows were awful.

'Heavy Metal', which, on my hand looked like a dupe for Laura Mercier's 'Alloy' cream eye shadow, was a glittery mess with no real pigmentation.

'Darkness' gunked up and did not apply evenly.

The best product out of this particular haul was the the gel eye liner in 'Steely' which is a pretty blue.

I'm absolutely gutted as I really wanted to like this range. After all, the prices are reasonable and the packaging is kind of cute!

I would be interested to know if anyone else has encountered these problems or if its me doing something wrong?

I'm back!!

Omg where to start.

I had such a good time, saw so much and went to so many different places! It really was the trip of a life time for me.

I went to Boston, Niagara Falls, The Finger Lakes, Lancaster County, Gettysburg, Shenandoah National Park, Washington and New York. (These being the places that I can remember!)

I think my favourite part was Washington which surprised me a little as I have been to Manhattan 3 times before and I've always loved it. Niagara was just incredible with the sheer power of the water coming over the falls. The Blue Ridge Mountains were so vast they almost didn't seem real.

Obviously I brought loads of goodies and I will hopefully get some reviews up this week!
