Hi everyone! If you like your Christmas vibes to start in November, you’re in the right place! If you don’t, then sorry about the last few posts but it seems to be all about the festive events at the moment. My second Christmas event of the year was with The Body Shop! Bear with me, because there’s lots more to this than just Christmas fun!
The Body Shop Makeup
Last week, I was lucky enough to be invited to The Body Shop Christmas Preview at their Briggate store in Leeds. We all met up at the shop and I made the most of arriving a little early by having a good old browse of the makeup! I’ve been dying to swatch the new liquid lipsticks but don’t get into town often. I wasn’t disappointed… they’re gorgeous! The Body Shop have brought out a new range of Metal Lip Liquids in six shades. I swatched most of them and they are all beautiful – opaque, metallic and so pigmented.
There was a 3-for-2 offer on, so I treated myself to two of those and a matte lip liquid. I chose Fuchsia Chrome and Plum Titanium (gorgeous on and lasted amazingly well when I tried it out!) In the matte, I chose Tokyo Lotus. Sadly in my first test, this hasn’t lasted very long on the lips. I’m planning a full review post soon though, so keep your eyes peeled! I also grabbed a Honey Bronze Drops of Sun – a liquid bronzer. I’ve got a Kat Von D foundation that’s way too light for me, so I’m planning to use it for that. The Body Shop girl who helped me with the makeup was equally as obsessed with makeup as me! It was really helpful to hear her tips and recommendations (use the metal lipstick as eyeshadow, for example!)
