My local Hot Topic is very small but I love their chokers and their shimmery nail polishes( the ones in the skull bottle) everything is good quality. The only reason why I gave this 4 stores is because the store employees are very rude. But the stuff you find here is awesome :)

This is a polish I bought at Hot Topic it's called Black Heart Beauty and the shade is Deep Red I love this nail polish 💅 it would look really nice with any skin tone, it's a opaque color, and it goes on very smoothly. This is only one coat no top coat and it looks like this... I am in love with this shade.

I love this place because I am a little goth so I enjoy getting my goth leads in here specially for plus size women. I also love any novelty store they have especially Funko Pops. I enjoy that they have a lot of things that I can't find especially TV shows merchandise and artist like Melanie Martinez merchandise as well. I love that they carry a lot of Disney because that is my favorite thing and to find merchandise that fits me it's amazing

You can always count on Hot Topic for a great variety in clothing and accessories. I used to shop there more when I was a teenager, but they still have awesome t-shirts no matter what your age. My husband got me these three t-shirts for Christmas. #GOT

Hot Topic I love your little a-line dresses! Here I am in one of your older Little Mermaid print dresses. Wish they were a little cheaper, but I just wait for your 30 or 40% off or clearance sales.

This review is for Blackheart !!! Which is bought at Hot Topic. The palette is called Mermaids Tale !!
To start out the case is so sparkly!!! But as soon as you open it you can trash that cheap brush away... I would recommend using a eyeshadow primer they are light but have pigment very shiney. You get what you pay for tho.

The anime/pop culture side of me loves going into Hot Topic. A lot of their accessories and merch are SO cute, it takes a while to get me out of the store once I step in. The prices aren't so bad either, I wouldn't say that their items are overpriced!

Just picked up this beautiful palette from hot topic. It's really good quality and the colors are gorgeous. It's less than $20! The shadows blend nicely and the packaging is beautiful. For Disney fans it's a must have!
Posting this on multiple review websites because hottopic wouldn't post my reviews. The whole situation was bad. So I ordered the Pikachu cardigan online. It is ABSOLUTELY not like the picture the black of the cardigan shows through pikachus yellow body. It makes pikachu look infected. In the picture online it looks PERFECT. I tried 3 times to post a review saying how unhappy I was with the (expensive) product. I haven't even worn it. It's an ugly cardigan and a total waste, I'd post a picture if I could. I made a side by side of what they show on the website and what I got. It's HORRIBLE. None of my reviews were posted because they didn't follow the rules. I had family read the reviews. Only thing we can think of is they wouldn't post it because I was honest about the product or because I said I'd never shop with hottopic again. But now here's the real issue. I don't live super close to a hottopic. That's why I ordered online. But to return we made the drive to North bend outlet mall where there's a hottopic I've been to once before. The first time I was there the guy was nice. Second time when I tried returning the cardigan? Nope. He said it was wet and that it smelled modly? After I received it and saw how UGLY it was i put it back in the bag until we could drive to the store and return it. It had no smell besides factory smell like all clothes have and it definitely wasn't wet. I've sent two emails to the hottopic website and haven't gotten a thing back (it's been a week). Do not shop with hottopic topic. Expensive, horrible customer, bad products and just a bad experience. I now have an expensive cardigan that's absolutely worthless. Again, I will N.E.V.E.R. shop with hottopic again. Unprofessional.

I really like this shop. It has things that usually I can't find in others.

Does anyone else wished that hot topic was easier to walk through? It's always so small and crowded.
