The Body Shop New Winter Trend Makeup | Review

Hello Lovelies!
I've been incredibly off blogger radar of late, but intend to get back into the swing of thing with a couple of Body Shop posts.
Over December I was fortunate enough to get to sample some of The Body Shop's Winter Trend Makeup range, after a twitter call-out for willing volunteers (who wouldn't want to!?) In return I had to create a unique winter trend makeup look for their facebook page. My next post will be a 'Get the Look' guide, but in this one I thought I'd introduce you to the products:
Cost: £12
Highlights: Light to medium coverage, colour-adapt technology
Disclaimer: The shade I was sent, 02, is a bit too dark for my very pale skintone! 
However I'm keeping it for summer when I get on the tanning bandwagon ;)

Cost: £8
Highlights: Smooth water-resistant eyeliner, doesn't budge during the day, lovely metallic shimmer
Cost: £16
Highlights: Delicate shimmery bronzer, great even on pale skin, brightens your makeup look, lasts forever!
Cost: £14
Highlights: Highly pigmented, wonderful highlighter shade, create warm smokey eye, very shimmery!

    1. Hi Jen!
      Aww thank you! I really want to make time to go back to blogging! I've got a few things lined up so fingers crossed I'll stick to blogging at least once a week!
      As far as I know, the shimmer cubes are here to stay! The smokey eye palettes come in and out of production, as they are limited edition, and I believe a couple different ones are made with each new makeup trend range.

  2. I love the look of the smokey eye palette! x

    1. Hi Kirsty, thank for your comment!
      The eyeshadows are amazing! And are good colours for working into more casual looks as well as a really bold smokey eye
