So what is all this stuff?



the body shop colour crush matte lipstick
$12.50
This matte lipstick comes in 7 different shades. The shade pictured here is Honolulu Pink Matte. 100% vegetarian and enriched with Community Trade Brazil Nut Oil and beeswax for maximum wear.

We love the subdued color to this. It's pink but it definitely has warm rosy tones that are gorgeous.We love the smell as well - not a vanilla or any kind of sweet flavor but an ultra mild clean smell. 

This color is buildable and we were totally surprised at what a great pop of color we received! While this works great for nights out on the town it is also great for the everyday as well. It's a very versatile color - LOVE!


the body shop down to earth eye palette
$24
This season The Body Shop released 5 different Limited Edition Eyeshadow Quads. The packaging is really sturdy plastic and has 4 - 2.2 g shadows. The coolest thing about the palettes is that you can mix and match by just popping out the individual shadows. 

The colors are beautiful and range from matte, to shimmer to sparkle. The Oregon Sunstone (top left on quad) is a pretty shimmer, The Peru Clay (top right) is the only matte in this palette and is honestly our favorite. Sienna Dust is a sparkly shadow (bottom left) perfect for the holiday season. The final shade is Idaho Jasper (bottom right) which is a deep shimmery brown shade, perfect for achieving a smoky eye look. These are all really richly pigmented - we love the peachy hue to this palette!

$24
Another of the Limited Edition Eyeshadow Quads, this one in Plum has darker shades perfect for creating those glamorous smoky looks for all your nights on the town! This palette also has 4 - 2.2 g pods that are interchangeable between palettes

Gorgeous! Attica Marble (top left in quad) is probably one of the absolute prettiest browbone colors ever! Petra Sandstone (top right) is a sparkly bronze that catches the light and is absolutely stunning (and seriously pigmented), Penrhyn Slate (bottom left) is a matte (there are two in this palette) and finally Bengal Granite (bottom right) is a dark shimmer, the color here looks almost black but it has almost a copper shine to it - it's really captures your attention. 

We went for something really simple on our eyes using both of the palettes that we received. Attica Marble on the browbone and Peru Clay on our lower lid


the body shop eye color stick
$15
These shimmering eye color sticks are available in three different shades. This one in Nevada Gold is the perfect chunky shape to help you get all sorts of eye looks. Each pencil has 1.6 g of product

These shades are really stay put and can last up to 12 hours. The Body Shop uses Community Trade Babassu Oil from Brazil and beeswax. We used this in our crease in the eye look image above


the body shop honey bronze drops of sun
$20
Our absolute favorite of all the items included in our package is this Limited Edition Honey Bronze highlighter / bronzer. Made with Community Trade Honey and Vitamin E this is the perfect way to get a summer glow in the dark winter months! 

Add to your foundation to add a hint of tan or use as a highlighter, this lightweight formula contains no shimmer (which we love because we can't hang with shimmery bronzers). We love the smell - it's lightly floral and earthy

You need very little to get a good bit of color. It's easy to blend and you can build it up to achieve the level of tan you prefer

Results girls! We added just a bit to our cheeks and got this gorgeous glow - so in love! A must have product!
