The mingle of scents in there was delightful, as usual, and the new displays were so inviting!
Of course, I gravitated towards the new makeup collection! I had visions of soft lilac shadows and pretty corals and nudes dancing in my head before I walked in. What I ended up with was not what I expected!
The most adorable young lady was looking after me and we decided to play! We tried the sweet pretty shades that I had in mind, but together we found so much prettiness in the not so sweet shades!
I hadn't tried the Colour Crush collection before, and was I in for a surprise!
The textures were smooth and creamy. The pigments were intense and true. Just call me a Smitten Kitten!
The Colour Crush Shadows are a powder that can be applied wet or dry. They are highly pigmented with a nice rich finish. The shade shown above is 315 Mon Cherry. Its a pearlescent mauvey hue that is a slightly warm in tone. The wear time on these is fantastic, and they don't crease! The price is beyond worth it at $10.00! Try this as your nod to Radiant Orchid, and you will be wearing this forever!
The Colour Crush Lippy is a rich, moisturizing lipstick with a high-impact colour pay-off. The shade I chose is 340 Damson in Distress. At first it looks like a dark plum but once applied, it's more of a hydrating, shiny stain. The shade is a beautiful wine that lasts for ever! I had to remove it with a heavy duty remover at the end of the night. It stayed comfortable throughout however, and if I needed some moisture after several hours a little bit of balm on top did the trick! This little wonder is only $13.00, but the quality is that of one that's twice the price. If I want a softer finish, I just press it into my lips with my finger for a berry stained lip. Pretty!
There are so many new things from The Body Shop this spring! The Raspberry Scent is delicious, and the Vitamin E Oil in Serum is heaven in a bottle!
