The blush comes housed in a clear compact with a pretty little rose design on the case. The design follows through on the actual blush with a pretty blossoming rose embedded into the powder. The rose goes deep so don’t fear using the powder and rubbing away the pretty design, it’ll stick around for a while. I have the lightest shade of blush which is 01 Pink. The formula is silky and sheer and best used on top of already applied blush to boost the color as it’s too light for me to wear on it’s own. After trying out a few pieces in the collection I’m still quite charmed by the fact that everything smells like roses. How sweet!

02 Fusia seems like it would be a better option for my skin and appears more pigmented but I do like 01 Pink as a sort of finishing powder as it beefs up my blush and casts a hint of shimmer on my cheeks which is quite pretty.

I’m really enjoying The Body Shop RoseFlower Collection and think it’s one of the prettiest ones they released in a long while. Definitely wanting to go back and check out the second blush!

The Body Shop Roseflower Radiance Stick Review

The Muse deems that you can feel pretty just not witty and wise when you use the new Body Shop Roseflower Radiance Stick.

Sorry, pretty, witty, AND wise are reserved for the Muse…you understand right? Still friends? What? I have to have some perks…I’m the Muse after all!

The Body Shop Spring Collection slowly won over this Muse’s heart and she’s actually pretty pleased with the brand new body Shop RoseFlower Radiance Stick. Not only does it come housed in a pretty rose patterned case but it also makes the Muse feel all flirty, girlish, and Spring-like by touching the Muse’s cheeks with hints of rosy shimmer!

The RoseFlower Radiance Stick smells like a fresh bouquet of roses which just tickles my inner Victorian’ side, can’t help it I adore scented products. The stick is way to sheer to work on it’s own unless you happen to be blessed with naturally pink cheeks however it works fantastically as a beautiful highlighter when paired up with a sweet pink blush. A touch on your cheeks will create a glowing, slightly shimmery effect that highlights and softens your makeup look.

If you like the look of luminescent, healthy skin this is the ticket. I liked the effect especially paired up with Benefit Posietint as it created a fresh, highlighted cheek look that was pretty and quite natural looking on my skin. I think it’ll make a brilliant Spring makeup item when I’m working a more natural look. The texture is creamy and moisturizing and it blends easily into the skin drying down to a powder finish. The shimmery effect could prove too much for some but is easily toned down by blending with a blush brush. You can also use a touch on your your eye lids for a soft pink shadow or a hint on your brow bone to highlight your eyes!

The Body Shop Moroccan Rose Roseflower Lips Review, Swatches, Photos, and FOTD

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 Body Shop RoseFlower Makeup Collection Spring 2009

The new Body Shop Spring Collection RoseFlower Makeup is available now on it’s website!

The+Body+Shop+RoseFlower+Makeup+Collection

Squee!

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+RoseFlower+Makeup+Collection+2

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+Body+Shop+Spring+20092

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!

The+Body+Shop+Spring+20091

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!

What do you think?
