The Body Shop
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?
Want any of this collection?
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!

Want any of it?
Not so much?

The Body Shop Sun Kissed Collection
The Body Shop Spring Bloom Collection
Mmm the Body Shop always gets some of my money during the Summer. They introduce pretty nice collections.
Although I don’t always agree with the price tag on some cosmetics The Body Shop offers, I am on board with the interesting items they release most times!
I really enjoy the shadows they have released in past Summer Collections, blushes, and other odds and ends.
This year is no different from years prior in the fact that my curiosity is tickled to dash into the store to swatch my heart out with their new Sun Kissed Collection.
Call me an addict but I can’t help these urges that come over me!
This year they haven’t done any of the cool eyeshadow duos they normally have which is sad but they have a load of other items that have caught my eye.
Since I’m on some sort of kick since falling in love with Urban Decay Baked Bronzer I noticed The Body Shop’s Sun Luster Bronzer right away!
I’m loving the interesting peachy pink shade! How about you?
At $25 USD I’m wincing at the price a bit as this isn’t designer counter makeup but…I am curious to say the very least!
They also have three colors of Waterproof Lustre Liner. Doesn’t interest me in the least as I’m rubbish applying liquid liner but I will say the colors look nice enough! Again, the price makes me gasp aloud, $15.50 USD? Hmm maybe someone should remind the Body Shop folk that these prices are obscene!
Now these are making a guest starring appearance on my wish list this Summer:
Eye Lustre Pearls!
Mini pearls of metallic shimmer available in Silvery Blue, Green, and Pink! The Muse likey! $16.50 USD each.
I love stains and sheer yet glossy lip colors in the Summer and the Sheer Lip Lustre have caught my eye! Available in three shades in an elegant gold tube I’m saying these might cozy up to the Eye Lustre Pearls on my wish list!
Hmmm a Sun Lustre Brush……psst…we can be honest and say this probably sheds like a mother! Right? $22.50 USD? I can buy a MAC brush for that! Thanks but no thanks!
And finally Body and Leg Shine….hmmm Tarte might be slightly peeved that The Body Shop sorta duped their new stain!
A nice collection of goodies if you’re a sun seeker and a bronze lover if not, chances are you’re not interested at all.
Count me intrigued. I’m going to hop over and have a swatch fest and tell you what I think. I’m a glutton for punishment so I imagine myself purchasing at least one item from this Collection!

The Body Shop’s Spring Bloom Collection is available online and in shops! Exciting!
I was lucky enough to view a beautiful FOTD created by a reader and fellow blogger using most of the collection and I must say I was very impressed! The colors are simply divine! I was particular in love with the Blushing Daisies Powder that was used to create the look!
Body Shop has been coming out with some rather lovely Collections lately and I look forward to each one and always pick up two or three items from each color story released!
This year the collection is entitled Spring Bloom and includes an array of yummie items that are sure to tempt to you!
First of all as I mentioned earlier the Blushing Daisies Powder caught my eye! The powder is $19.50 USD and comes in a light and dark pink variation. This is a shimmering blush with a pearl finish!
Everywhere I look I see eyeshadow duos and Body Shop’s Spring Collection is no different. They have released three color variations of shadow duos entitled Shimmer Buds that are $16.50 USD Each. The color range includes green and silver, gold and green, and peach and blue. I own a few of the single shadows from past collections and I’m happy to say they are packed full of sparkle and have excellent color payoff so I suspect these little guys are no different!
With the Spring Collection a new set of Shimmer Blocks were released in a quad of four colors for $19.50 USD. The colors include Blue, Green, Gold, and Copper.
Also available is a liquid highlighter in pink for $14 USD which offers a touch of color for giving your face a natural, highlighted glow!
And finally two new glosses entitled Lip Bloom are available with the Spring Bloom Collection in Rose and Peach for $15.50 USD each.
The Collection looks very lovely and each piece is limited edition however the prices do make me wince slightly. Quality is very good on these as I’ve collected a few pieces from previous color releases however the prices are near counter price and I can get even better quality for alot less. This year the prices increased by a dollar or two from last season and although the collection is lovely I think I’ll wait for the Season to end and nab these items on sale!
Have it already?
