Some Swatches+Reviews of The Body Shop Products

Wednesday, August 25, 2010
Kinda old stuff that I bought at the beginning of the summer, when TBS was having their 3 for $10 sale.
First, some of their Nature's Minerals Eye Colors. Basically, loose mineral shadows.
These shadows did not impress me at all, other than the pretty colors. Really, they embodied every negative quality that people sometimes associate with mineral makeup; streaky, hard to blend, doesn't stick to skin. Even with Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy underneath, they looked really chalky and chunky. They were really a disappointment and I think that I'm going to try to franken nail polishes with these so that they don't go to waste.

Also, I picked up a few blushes that came in the stamping kind of package where the blush is in the cap, like this:

 I quite despised the packaging, so I did end up depotting them for my blush palette. But I did like the blushes themselves, very soft and silky with pretty good pigmentation.
Both were sort of a satiny finish, though Golden Coral had golden shimmer also. They're quite bright, but can be buffed out so that they aren't so dramatic.

All of these swatch pictures were taken under a natural light bulb/lightbox with no flash.

That's it for tonight! Own any makeup from The Body Shop that you like?

Products shown were purchased by me, for my own use.
