The Body Shop
The Muse was feeling every so hopeful that the new Body Shop RoseFlower Lips would turn out as good as they looked in the promo pictures. Although for the most part it was the Roseflower Blush that called my name, I do so admit that the lippes were equally as beautiful.
Turns out they are beautiful and have a super fab formula to go along with ‘em too!
Read ahead to find out all about them!
I’m pretty impressed overall with The Body Shop Moroccan Rose Spring Collection. In particular I thought that The Body Shop paid special attention to packaging this year which didn’t go unnoticed by this Muse, whom happens to be a packaging junkie. The new RoseFlower lipsticks come housed in a crystal clear tube which for the most part isn’t anything too special however wrapped around the inside tube is a gorgeous pink overlay with pretty little rose flower emblems that totally tickled this Muse.
Aside from the uber pretty packaging the lipsticks themselves are truly a rather great find. I tried out two of the three shades and both were very pretty and flattering for the Spring weather. The formula is nicely moisturizing and leaves behind a shiny, glossy pigmented pout. As advertised the lipsticks contain organic beeswax and marula oil which repair the skin’s natural moisture barrier. In keeping with it’s rose theme the lipsticks taste and smell like a delicate rose which adds a certain charm to the overall lipstick. If you’re lips tend to be drier you’ll love the formula as gloss is completely optional considering that the lipsticks themselves leave behind a nice shiny lip look.
The colors I tried were Deep Pink and True Pink. Although both shades were lovely I thought True Pink was the better rose shade that paired up beautifully with pink cheeks and a pink eye look that I created this morning. Deep Pink is strangely named as there isn’t any question it’s pink but it’s more of a fun fuchsia shade rather than a true deep pink shade.
At $16 USD per a lipstick I didn’t think they were too badly price considering they deliver with a high quality lipstick and lovely packaging to go along with it.
Overall, I’m quite pleased with both shades and think I’ll add the 3rd shade to my collection. Perfect for your Spring looks, Roseflower Lips from the Body Shop are Muse Approved for purchase. The Muse liked ‘em alot!

The new Body Shop Spring Collection RoseFlower Makeup is available now on it’s website!
I blogged about the collection a few weeks ago but a few items were left out so do jump ahead for more deets on this fine collection!
My original discussion about The Body Shop RoseFlower Makeup Collection included the shadows, lipsticks, face shimmer stick, and blushes. However, two new items I hadn’t discovered are available for purchase as well as part of this collection which are a brand new Shimmer Cubes Set and a Matte Shimmer Cheek Color.
The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes Set is $22 USD and includes a very nice selection of colors including shimmering green, white gold, pink and grey. I think it’s actually one of the nicest shade selections I’ve seen yet released in the Shimmer Cubes!
The second item that I didn’t mention in my original post is the new Body Shop Matte & Shimmer Cheek Color which is $17.50 USD and is a mosaic pressed powder in shades of peach and pink that range from matte to shimmer combining to create a glowing cheek look!
My eye is still on that blush in Fusia! I’m looking forward to seeing the collection in it’s entirety at The Body Shop as a few pieces have caught my eye!

I admit that I occasionally get tempted by the cosmetic offerings at The Body Shop although I do still stand by my right to say I find them vastly overpriced! Wince! It’s The Body Shop not Sephora after all right? But aside from that I have picked up quite a few pieces here and there that I have been quite pleased with and in all honesty some have even became staple products.
The Body Shop Spring Collection definitely keeps in the theme of Spring with soft shades of pink that I’m sure you’ll fancy!
I have my eye on the darker of the two blushes that’s for sure but I think I can probably safely skip everything else!
What do you think?

Skipping it in favor of something else?

The Body Shop has updated it’s website with the new holiday collection which includes a slew of new makeup items! In particular the new palettes have caught my eye although they do look somewhat matte I have hopes that the title of the collection “Sparkling Seductive” means that the finish has a sparkle! I’m disappointed I didn’t indulge in last year’s palettes as they were quite nice so I keep hope alive that these are equally as gorgeous!
The palettes are $24.50 USD each and come in two variations with five eyeshadows each. The first palette looks warm and second palette has a cooler, evening feel. I’m partially to the warm one with the gold an coral, very nice!
The collection also includes a sparkle lipgloss in two shades for $16.50 USD each. These aren’t too appealing to me since I’m not big on heavy duty sparkle in my glosses however the dusky rose shade is quite lovely!
The Body Shop Sparkle & Shimmer Powder Puff looks interesting! This one is a loose gold powder that can be used on face, body, or cheeks! Available for $18 USD.
And finally two glitter eyeliners are available for $15.50 USD each.
Although a majority of the collection doesn’t particularly thrill me, I am excited about the palettes and curious about the finish so I will be heading in store to have a little peek for myself!
All in all a rather nice little selection of goodies from The Body Shop!
