So it’s barely October and holiday kits are already hitting…
The Body Shop isn’t usually well known for their packaging, more for their scents and ingredients. But this year… oh they have outdone themselves. For the holiday season, they have come up with some adorable little items that I am in love with.
The palette contains 2 shimmers, 1matte and 1 glittery shimmer, all enriched with Community Fair Trade Marula Oil making these buttery and almost creamy in texture. Now I don’t own a lot of light pastels so this was a nice addition to my collection.
On the back, you get instructions on howto achieve a sparkly holiday eye look. I tried to follow it as best I could, although I didn’t lve putting the peach sparkle under my brow and I added a bit more definition to the crease.
Using the matte brown on my lashline was amazing. It was rich, pigmented and stayed put all day. I also blended some of the brown into the crease for definition. I don’t like the shimmer (shade 4) under my eyebrow, but it looks nice in the inner corner!
Sadly this palette is no longer available online, but check stores for stock. Or you can try out the Frosted Pastels palette with a similar design.
Next up, this cutie pie… Geisha Doll Lip & Cheek Stain! I definitely get an Asian vibe from the packaging and formula, it reminds me of Tony Moly or Etude House.
Swatched heavily on the lips to show the gold sparkle. This stains like putting red food dye on your lips, which is GREAT for a holiday party. You may want to line the lips though, I didn’t and the colour bled a bit. It is fairly moisturizing too!
SO… I may be buying everyone I know one of those Geisha Dolls. It is adorable, affordable ($15 regular price, but there is always a sale!) and the formula is great.
