Review: The Body Shop Colour Crush Eyeshadows & Giveaway!

Hey Everyone!

lksdjf

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!

    I haven’t tried their makeup line yet and If I win it would be great :)

    I have never used eyeshadows before for my daily makeup routine. The only time I ever used/encountered them was during performances for my secondary school cca performances as the strong lighting washes us out and make us look really pale.

    I am hoping to win this because I would like to experiment and create the smokey eye look (even though I do have to say I am nervous! Because I dont want to end up looking like a panda!)

  • Fifi

    I want to win this cause you said they are worth it.

  • Samantha

    Hi Roseanne,

    I wanted to comment on your facial post but it seems comments are off, and it might seem weird to say this here, but I’ve been reading your blog for so long, and I must say your skin is really flawless now! :D

    It really looks so amazing for someone who has been battling acne for awhile, I’m really happy for you!

    I want to win because I have always been an avid supporter of The Body Shop’s cruelty-free make up products. Seeing as how I have not tried their Colour Crush line of eyeshadows yet, your review totally made me want to try it out!

  • Wendy

    Hi Roseanne,

    I’ve never dared to try the smokey eye look because I am always worried that the it would smudge and make my dark eye circles even more obvious. :/ I’ve watched many tutorials and dark colours seem really prone to mistakes. I’d really like to try these eyeshadows since you love em!

    Thank you. :)

  • JMei

    I want to have them because i want to attract someone’s attention :)

    I desire winning over these cutie colorettes because I’m always wanting a Body Shop product. Last time I’ve a got a good lip shine, but eyeshadows don’t attract me much on their line. So now that you throw a good review about this new product, I trust to allow my lavish them on my eyelids!!! :)

  • Attika

    i REALLY want the eyeshadows because the colors are unique and high quality! I’m dying for for the gorgeous baby blue, that color is really hard to find! Besides I dont think these came out yet in my country.

    I really want to win :) because I’ve never found a perfect eyeshadow.
    Everytime I use color, my face looks older. So, I never try any color except brown and black.
    But then I use “the body shop eyebrow and liner kit” and apply this to make smokey eyes… It goes perfect! I think I just found the perfect matte eyeshadow I’ve ever tried, no joking. really… But have you try it?
    Thanks Roseanne!

    I want them because I have never used eyeshadows before. And since it has a pearl or a matte version and also it is really pigmented it will be a good start for me to try them on ^^ Thanks for sharing with us all these makeup treats ^^

  • Kaori Lizaso

    I would love to win the Colour Crush eye-shadows because I have never tried The Body Shop cosmetics but I have heard many good things about them. I would especially love to own makeup to do a smoky eye because I only own basic colors of eyeshadows. Lastly, I am a firm believer of supporting brands that are cruelty-free and using The Body Shop products keeps my conscience clean :) Thanks for the giveaway and hope I win! ;)

    Hi Roseanne! I hope you remembered me. I wish to win your Colour Crush Eye-shadows giveaway because I hardly have makeup. I maximize the usage of what I have since I can’t afford to buy such. I would love to have those sets as they can help me with my upcoming interviews. They might even create a good impression on the interviewers. If I win, these can be of great help. Thank you for having a generous heart to share what you have. Take care <3
