The Body Shop Makeup Review
Monday, 7 Sep 2020
I was on such a roll with weekly blog posts, and then I fell off again! I have so many blog post drafts that I need to get through, and hopefully I will slowly finish and publish all of them. Today I have a review of The Body Shop Makeup.
First up I have the Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation in Malawi Beach. I love cushion foundations, so when I saw this at The Body Shop I had to buy it. It is a light coverage foundation that gives a soft matte finish. I love how it perfects the skin while still letting it breathe and look like skin. It feels quite hydrating on the skin, and I think this will be a perfect summer foundation. The foundation is swatched below, how perfect is the match!
I also bought the Matte Lip Liquid in Taipei Orchid and Nairobi Camelia. I adore both shades, although I prefer Nairobi as it is a bit of a warmer nude shade, while Taipei is a bit more pink. Both are so comfortable on the lips, don’t crack or flake and the pigment is intense.
Next up I have the *Happy Go Lash Mascara which is meant to protect and care for your lashes while giving a thicker, more defined look. This mascara definitely opens up the eyes, is easy to remove with micellar water, and although the formula is a bit wetter than I like, I love the look it gives. The spoolie is pretty dense, so it coats lashes really well without clumping. It isn’t as long-lasting as my usual mascaras, which I assume is due to the more hydrating, caring formula.
To finish it all off I was sent the *Skin Defense Multi-Protection Face Mist SPF30, which is a great way to reapply sun protection throughout the day without ruining your makeup. If you have oily skin, this may not work for you, but on my dry winter skin, I love the dewy look it gives. I do lightly powder my forehead and nose though. The Sun Protection Essence from the same range is one of my favourite products!
Have you tried anything from The Body Shop Makeup Range? What are your top picks?
