Play with color with The Body Shop's Spring Trend Collection

01 February 2014

The love month is off to a great start with the new Spring Trend collection from The Body Shop! These arrived the other day and what better way to welcome February than tell you about pretty little things I can't help but gush about?


The Body Shop's Spring Trend Collection includes lip glosses, shimmer cubes, and hair chalks that come in two shades - one each for blondes and brunettes. I'm ecstatic that even though I am not a blonde, I still got the pink set! I had a lot of fun swatching them and taking photos. ♡




The Body Shop Flavoured Lip Gloss in Rose
12ml - P595

True to its name, this smells and tastes like roses! Not that I've ever eaten roses before but you get my drift. This lip gloss is ultra sheer with a generous serving of silver micro-glitters. I am wearing this on top of bare lips in the photo above but I think it's a great topper for your favorite pink lipsticks. Dab some just on the center of your lips for an instant plumping effect.





The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes Palette in Poppy Pink
Garden Rose, Deep Fuchsia, Light Coral, Champagne Pink
P1,295

Look at all those colors, aren't they pretty? Multi-purpose too, as these shimmer cubes can be used as eyeshadows (just make sure to use a primer to make the colors more vibrant) and highlighter! I also love that they come in their own individual acrylic cases so if you want, you can even share one or two with your girl friends. ;)




The Body Shop Limited Edition Hair Chalk in Tickle Me Pink
P695

This is the star product of The Body Shop's Spring Trend Collection. To be honest, it's my first time to use one. My verdict? I think it's a fun and quick way to change your look without permanent color commitment! I played with it yesterday afternoon and here is the result:


I love how it complements my red hair! I now have half a mind to dye my hair pink next heh. You can even experiment with other "drawing" styles and apply the hair chalk on single strands, an ombré look, or a funky two-tone twist! Just make sure to set it with hairspray and try hard not to run your hands over your hair frequently for maximum staying power. If you don't want it anymore, just comb it out or wash with water! Easy-peasy.


The best thing about these three aside from the top-notch quality that can only be expected from The Body Shop is that they're all cruelty-free. So, which one is your favorite from the bunch? Mine is the Shimmer Cubes Palette. So excited to play with color and give myself just a wee bit of sparkle!
