The Body Shop ~Beauty Haul!

It’s Friday!!!

Happy Friday friends. Guess what I am going to share with you today after my last Friday’s haul on¬†NYX makeup.¬†I’m always happy to do my haul¬†and¬†you are all an encouragement to me. Thank you.

When the Body shop have one of their sale of Buy 3, Get 2 Free, it takes quite a lot of willpower to resist it. To be honest, I’m quite a big fan¬†of Body Shop¬†on bath & body,¬†skin care and makeup products. So, with sales like that, it’s going to take a tranquilizer to put me down (ha!ha!ha!).

So, here¬†are some of the haul¬†which I spent about $70.00 in the store. I got them several¬†weeks ago.¬†It’s just sitting there and waiting for my review. It’s strange¬†how I didn’t do my haul on these earlier. I’m always excited to share newer hauls and so once I forgot then it will be sitting there until today. But don’t worry, the sales are still on their website.

The Body SHop Beauty Haul

The sales includes all bath & body, skin care, makeup, hair etc…¬† I will definitely be reviewing the majority of the items I’ve bought in due course, after I have been able to thorougly try them out.

Color Crush Shine Lipsticks in 201 and 130

I love lipsticks and I told myself that I’m just going to get one but ended up getting three in total. I paid $12.75 for each.

The Body Shop website says that it’s an¬†irresistible lipstick that gives a sheer wash of colour with a sorbet-fresh shine. Each moisture-rich lipstick is infused with a delicate rose fragrance. I can’t agree more. I always prefer to go for matte and creamy finish but since it’s sooo irresistable I got them in sheer finish. What am I thinking? Hmmm….¬†probably impulse buying! But the colors are nice. Perfect to wear them for doing shopping errands.

The¬†trouble I have with body shop’s lipstick is that there is no¬†color name¬†description on their packaging or even on their website.¬†They only use color code¬†on its packaging label. I find it hard to distinguish which red and the other darker without having a color name to link. But I guess that’s just me. Overall, body shop’s products are¬† really amazing and I have been using their bath & body products for decades. I have confident in their products and that’s¬†part of¬†the reason why I branched out to their makeup section to try them out.

Body Shop Vit e moisturizermoisture cream body shop

Vitamin E Moisture Cream for All Skin Types on Daily protection and moisturization (1.7 oz)  $18.00

I need moisturizer for my dry skin and I picked this up for cloudy or rainy day’s wear. It doesn’t have SPF but¬†I¬†plan to wear it¬†when the sun is hiding behind the clouds.¬†It says¬†to provide daily moisturize and hydrate skins leaving it¬†feeling smooth and soft. I tried it in the store and I can feel the cold, soothing and soft cream on my skin. It has a lovely smell too. Can’t resist¬†so this goes in my shopping basket.

body shop camolie makeup reomver makeup remover cream

Camomile Sumptous Cleansing Butter (net wt: 2.7 oz)

This is the product that caught my eyes. I have my usual Estee Lauder eyemakeup remover but this one looks unique.¬†I like the tin can packaging. It’s a simple design but¬†light in weight. It does have a gentle soothing smell which I really¬†like. The salesperson tried it on my hand and it feels buttery and it does removed the lipstick swatches I made earlier while at the store. I have’nt¬†had any butter type of makeup remover before and this one¬† impresses me.

Tea tree flawless bb cream

Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream in 03 Dark color shade (net wt: 1.3 fl oz)

Well,¬† I mentioned earlier that I bought these items¬†several weeks ago¬†when I still got my tan. So, the dark shade in 03 fit my skin tone but now as the weather gets colder I need a lighter shade of¬†Medium. There isn’t much of color shades selection to choose from. It’s either Light, Medium or Dark. I might just get another medium for autumn till winter.

Tea tree always comes up with incredibly wonderful tea scents on body wash, lotions, tea tree oil to name a few which for me is quite rejunevating and therapeutical.

Since the promotion is still on and the weather is getting colder, I don’t mind getting¬†a lighter color of Tea Tree BB cream now.

Products are never tested on animals, and all their products are 100% vegetarian.

So, there you have it. That’s all that I bought from the Body Shop¬†on this week’s beauty haul.

If you bought anything from the 3 for 2 promotion, I’d love to know what you bought?

As always. thank you for reading.

Hi friends! Today, I would like to talk about my Top 5 FAVORITE BLUSHES which I picked up from the drugstores.cI love blushes since it make a pale face looking fresh and bright. It really make a dull day seems happier. It works for me everytime when I feel down these beauties knows how to cheer my face up.

Maybelline Dream Bouncy blush is also one of my favorite blush of all time. I had this for a while already and finally I got the chance to show case it as my Top 5. Yes it has those bouncy effect which I find it quite cool. This is a cream blusher that is so lightweight to powder form. It has a beautiful colour payoff and so a little goes a long way.

This little gem – Essence Kalinka blush. Believe it or not I got this for only $2.00 on liquidation sale. I simply love the cute and adorable Russian doll theme packaging that drew me to grab it. But I did find it quite pigmented and soft. It blends in quite well and it has a matte finish. Not too bad for a $2 bucks blusher.

Revlon Blush in 010 Classy Coral is a rich, quite pigmented and so wonderful soft when applying. The texture is soft and it blends pretty nicely. One thing to note is that the color of this Classy Coral which I picked has a very soft and light tone to it. So, lots of blending required for a fresh looking cheek. Good news is that the color is buildable so it works for me. There are 9 color shades available!

NYX blush is one of my¬†everyday blusher after I started using it. It’s very pigmented, creamy texture feel eventhough it is a powder blush.¬†Has a¬†shimmery effect too.¬† It creates a really natural glow when I applied it on my apple cheek.¬† It glides so smoothly and I absolutely love this blusher. By the way,¬†I got mine in copper for¬†an autumn look.¬†Available in 24 gorgeous and radiant colors!

Last but not least is my E.L.F. blusher. It has a silky finish which blends pretty well on my skin. The formula is silky to touch. It has a tiny, subtle amount of shimmer to it which gives off a natural looking glow. Average pigments and good value for money. I got mine at Target.

What is your favorite blusher from the drugstore?

Thanks for reading guys!
