I’m getting into the Valentine’s spirit this week ditching the bronzes and browns and channelling pretty pinks and purples. I’ve been trying out these gorgeous pieces from The Body Shop Colour Crush collection... and yes I’m crushin’. If you’re looking for gift inspiration or fancy trying something pretty and feminine, these picks could be your (love) tonic.
The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipstick* £10 here
I’m a sucker for a baby pink and this is up there with the best of them. I’d describe Innocent Pink as a baby pink with a subtle touch of coral that gives a face brightening pop of colour. The formula is luscious and rich, infused with a subtle rose scent. It has a nice slip that glides on smoothly straight from the bullet, think Revlon lip butters, but not quite as creamy. It’s well pigmented with a pretty creamy frost finish that lasts 2-3 hours. Colour Crush Lipsticks are available in 26 shades, I’ve a feeling this won’t be the only one in my collection for long.
Colour Crush Eyeshadows* £7 here
I’m bowled over by the quality of these shadows. Intensely pigmented with a silky-soft texture, the colour that you see in the pan is what you get. I don’t normally get on with pink eyeshadows but Berry Cute is quite an eye brightener and Grape Expectation is a pretty plumy purple that brings out the green in my eyes. Both blend easily and last all day. In the picture below I’m wearing Berry Cute all over the lid and Grape Expectations towards the outer lid.
