Get ready to get noticed.
This season at The Body Shop, experience the JOY of Makeup. With an enviable lineup of beauty products – everything from subtle shimmer to intense shine – you’re bound to get your gorgeous on.
I was fortunate to receive the hottest holiday shades to enjoy – with unique packaging, state-of-the art colour processing and sweet, dewy finishes… I’m so excited to share these fabulous products with you!
I couldn’t be more pleased to introduce The Body Shop’s collection of Baked-to-Last Colours, innovative eye duos and blushers hand-baked on terracotta discs for intense colour, incredible depth, rich coverage and long-lasting staying power.
“Each product is unique with freshly milled powders, pure pigments and gorgeous shimmers, slow baked to perfection for 24-hours. The pearls and pigments are bound together to create a smooth sheen of colour. The Baked-to-Last craftsmanship is outstanding, made in Italy and baked in small batches.”
Yes please! I could not get over the vibrancy of the eye colour – these shadows are definitely not for the shy girls. Due to the tightly packed shimmer, do yourself a favour and use a damp brush to apply; otherwise, I found that I had way too much flake-off under the eye. Of course, going wet means a serious punch of colour, but if you’ve got the occasion and the confidence, it’s a serious beauty pay off.
(Due to their high sparkle and shine, the next few products didn’t photograph very well with my little Canon SD1100, so I’ll be using stock photos.)
Next, I indulged in one of The Body Shop’s most innovative beauty products in a long time – the very glamorous “The Sparkler“. Resembling a boudoir perfume atomizer, this gorgeous little number releases a light-diffusing, fine shimmery powder to highlight the face, body and hair. And it’s scented! A light, floral fragrance topped off a burst of long lasting shimmer. It is THE illuminator you’ll want to have on hand if you’re club hopping this holiday season.
To complement your iridescence, check out the new Love Gloss in Twinkling Pink!
I also had tons of fun with Star Dust. The description on the website states: “Add sparkle to the face or décolletage with a little pot of glitter.” Which is true… if you’re 16 years old. To vamp it up, I’d suggest mixing it with your favourite black liquid liner for a va-va-va-very Merry Christmas sparkle. Star Dust is available in Gold and Pink – and is definitely a must have for (especially creative) makeup junkies.
Create your signature look with The Body Shop! This Christmas, I’ll certainly be adding a little shimmer and shine courtesy of their fabulous holiday makeup.
