Highlighter Focus: Topshop Chameleon Glow in U-Turn

A few days ago I went out for dinner with my friend Priscilla, and while walking around Alexanderplatz we saw that a new Topshop store had opened at the Galeria mall. We  ended up spending a good 15 minutes swatching lipsticks and what have you in the makeup section. I had just gotten a phone job offer, so it was a euphoric time, perfect for some shopping! Little did I know I would come out with the Chameleon highlighter, appropriately named U-Turn. 
I wasn’t sure what this product really was, just assumed it was a highlighter. Topshop describes it a s a multi-purpose powder, but labels are really just that. I’m all about using products for any purpose I think they would fit. U-Turn was the warmest shade and the one I saw myself creating the most makeup looks around. The shimmers in it have a green/burgundy colour combination, and the finish is not only dichromatic, it is almost multidimensional. I swatched it on my Instagram if you’d like too see, or just have look at my Instagram feed on here 🙂


The Chameleon Glow line also includes the shades Violet (Purple/Orange) and Shuffle the Cards (Gold/Amber). The pigmentation which isn’t like anything I’ve seen before. Whether applied with fingers or a brush, this little baby shows really nicely, and a little bit goes a long way. I find the price slightly expensive (10 euros) for the quantity, but it is something to be used in moderation, so I am sure it will last me for quite some time. I wanted to also mention that a follower who worked for Topshop as a beauty advisor told me that Topshop makes their beauty products in the same factory as MAC. I am not sure how true that is, but I definitely saw some good indications while swatching lipsticks, and considering the prices are almost 50% lower at Topshop, I think it might just be a good insider tip! What do you guys think? Have you hear this before?


Here I used U-Turn as a highlighter, dusting it on my cheekbones, bridge of the nose, cupid’s bow and forehead. I wanted a more intense highlight for my inner corners though, so I tapped it using a synthetic pencil brush and went all out with the layers xD All in all, I am really glad I purchased this guy and will most likely go back for the shade Violet.
