Hot Topic Makeup
So as I was at Hot Topic the other day doing my usual drooling-but-not-buying routine at items of Hello Kitty, Lady Gaga, and Alice In Wonderland, I noticed they had some makeup on sale. A lot of items were .98 cents apiece, so I thought I'd get some to review, since I've never tried any of them, and I haven't seen them on anyone else's blogs. I always love looking at their polishes- they have so many pretty colors. They have a lot of pretty palettes too, although none on sale so I didn't get any. I purchased 2 polishes, 2 glitter eyeliners, and one eyeshadow. This is the only picture you get, sorry! The lighting is too shitty. So, the eyeshadow is just a matte white, nothing remarkable. The glitters look just as they do in the container, dry in a couple minutes, peel off easily, like you would expect. The nail polish is not as unremarkable as these items, because it totally SUCKS. You have to hold your grip on that teeny tiny black lid, which makes it really difficult to keep a steady hand. The brush is fat but not in a good way, and it's stiff and the bristles spread themselves out for a weird, uneven coat. Also, the polish is thick, gloppy, and runny. When I pulled the wand out of the bottle, it dripped all over the sides, and I had to keep trying to wipe it off and stop it from dripping everywhere. So while I'd say most of the Hot Topic makeup is the mediocre quality you would expect, DO NOT buy the polish. These weren't even worth the .98 cents, much less the normal price of $3. Don't get sucked in by the pretty colors! Hopefully by next weekend I'll have some Forever 21 makeup to show you. Mall brand makeup is intriguing me right now.
