Although The Body Shop has been renowned for it’s body care and environmentally friendly products, I never really saw it as a make-up brand until they came out with these amazing Colour Crush eye shadows. Newly launched in Singapore, The Body Shop Colour Crush eye shadows come in 30 different shades, all single shadows which make them look just like smarties! They offer both pearl and matte shades and have an extensive colour range from the safe colours to the more wilder pinks, blues and greens.
My ultimate favourite one is this vivid pink because of course you know that vivid pink is totally my colour! The name goes by Berry Cheeky which is a hot berry pink that is really pigmented. I just love how smooth the shadows are and how easily they glide on the skin. They have amazing texture and I’m really surprised since I usually see The Body Shop as more body care than make-up.
The reason why they are so pigmented is because they are made with crushed pigments in Italy and they go on really smooth because they are blended with a silky blend of Community Fair Trade oils! I mean look at that swatch, and look at how soft the shadow is. It almost melts into the skin without that chalky feeling.
But you know me, what better way to demonstrate with an easy tutorial. Excuse the eye-brows, they’re properly trimmed right now but not when I did the pictures for this post. Whoops. Life gets busy. Anyway, I used Sand By Me all over the lids and chocolate linger in the crease to warm it up. This is a great way that you can balance the colour that you’re going to wear later. I then ended off with a tad bit of colour which is the Berry Cheeky in the outer corner coming up from the lash line. You can use a very small angled brush for this – something fluffy and simply dab the colour on. The intensity is already very vivid so make sure you’re doing it in a buildable manner. As you can see, it’s colour made wearable! Then, finish off with eyeliner, mascara and false lashes. I also added a cream yellow in the inner corners which is Golden Girl!
I hope you liked the look! Overall, I love these eye-shadows because they are pigmented, glide on like a dream and totally worth it! The extensive range of 30 shades also means that you can play around with colour!
