New From The Body Shop

The Body Shop has always been one of my favourite places to receive gifts from, or visit if I'm feeling like a bit of a spendy sesh in the pamper department. They've been on top of their game recently too with their fruit-themed body product collections but also their makeup it seems. Now I don't think I have ever tried any of their beauty products before, aside from a cream blush a couple of years back but I'll give you a heads up, it's actually really good! Recently I've been trying out some new bits & pieces from the Body Shop and here's what I thought...

Colour Crush Shine Lipsticks in Fuschia Flirt and Sunset Romance*-These lipsticks, wow. I first spied them on Nouvelle Daily and was sold from the get-go. These shades are both such Sophie colours too which helps things along. Anyway, these lipsticks apply creamily, much like a cremesheen lipstick from Mac. The colours are quite sheer initially, but you can always layer these up and keep doing so until you're happy with the colour. They're also pretty long-wearing too which is rare in such a creamy lip product. Love, love love.

Raspberry Harvest Scrub, limited edition-I'm hoping this photo gets across just how delectable this scrub is. The whole time I was shooting these photos I could smell this and had to remind myself it wasn't edible. Aside from its utterly delicious scent. this scrub is such a great companion for Winter skin. Say goodbye to dry, scaly limbs and hello to smoother skin. I'm not gonna lie, the matching body butter is also tempting me whenever I walk past the store in town...

Instablur*-If that name doesn't conjure up thoughts of picture perfect skin then I don't know what will. Instablur is essentially a primer, designed to control shine and extend the wear time of your makeup. Now I'm pretty devoted to my Hourglass and Laura Mercier primers but I was pleasantly surprised by this. It feels smoothing on the skin and has more of a satin finish. It doesn't feel siliconey which I love and worked just as well as the aforementioned primers. I'm impressed so far!

Colour Crush Eyeshadow in Coco Deluxe*-This comes up a lot darker on camera for some reason, but in reality it's a bronze shade with a touch of shimmer. I found this colour veers more on the matte side of things so as well as an all over lid colour, it works great in the crease too. 

-Have you tried any of these new products from The Body Shop?
