Latest Make-up For Spring
With fabulous natural ingredients, products in the Collection benefit from skin-caring Community Trade marula oil, a highly effective moisturizing ingredient that helps to condition the skin over time. The oil is asourced from the Eudafano Women’s Cooperative in Northern Namibia where trade means The Body Shop can access this moisturising oil, while 5,000 women in rural communities are empowered with the rare opportunity of regular work and income.
I find this product convenient particularly for touch ups. No need to carry a mirror, pot of rouge and brush in order to create a perfect natural flush in the middle of the day, this product is all you need. The 01 Vibrant Rose shade is medium pink with subtle silver shimmers. In the container, the blush looks like a bright shade of pink but goes on natural pink when applied. Apply by dabbing the sponge on the apples of cheeks and blend the blush after using a finger (or brush) to give a natural effect. Though the blush contain shimmers, it being subtle makes it wearable during the day just giving the cheeks a healthy glow.
The shade I got is 01 Pink Cream which is a light neutral pink with shimmers with a yummy fruity scent. Product is not pigmented and more on the clear side but can be layered on top of a darker shade lipstick to soften the color or worn alone for a healthy plumped looking lips. I like how my lips feel softer after an application and no flakes of dry skin when applied again.
A truly versatile product, Lip & Cheek Stain has a cult following – and here is your chance to discover a new shade to give your cheeks and lips a healthy-looking glow. Use alone for fresh-faced allure or underneath the Kiss of Colour Cheek Blush or Hi-Shine Lip Treatment to intensify the look. Presented in a sleek bottle with easy-to-use sponge applicator, the product features Community Trade aloe vera, and restores moisture, smoothness and suppleness to skin. Available in 01 Rose Pink and the new LIMITED EDITION 03 Shimmering Coral, Lip and Cheek Stain is a make-up must-have for the new season.
I'm not particular of the smell but definitely a staple in my kikay kit. The shimmering coral is more on the warm side orange peach shade giving a natural flush on the cheeks and a boost of color on the lips.. perfect for summer. The color is sheer and on my fair skin I sometimes layer it because it doesn't come out of my desired effect. A good thing though for other lip and cheek tints when applied just a wee bit above the right amount, produces a clown/bruised appearance. :P Unlike other lip and cheek tints, this have subtle shimmers. Yes its my first time to see shimmers on a tint, lol. It may benefit those people who love using cheek tint and adding highlighter/shimmer powder afterwards.
I prefer using this product wet/foiled due to its pigmentation. Really easy to blend with minimal eyeshadow fall out. Not chalky at all. I actually find this product of high quality, reminds me a lot of MAC Mineralized eyeshadows.
