I can't promise you that butterflies will adorn your face if you hand over the shekels for the Body Shop's new spring collection, but you'll deffo get some wearable shades containing skincare benefits in on-trend colours like coral - which couldn't be hotter at the moment, frankly.
An orange-inspired Hi-Shine Lip Treatment, €13.95, is a conditioning formula containing community trade marula oil, which delivers a wash of shine. If tangerine dreams aren't for you, it also comes in Party Pink. The coral treatment ramps up a bit more with that YSL/Dior-esque cheek stamp blush to the top. It's Kiss of Colour Cheek Blush, it's €14 and comes in two shades, vibrant rose and golden coral. Community Trade sesame seed and brazil nut oils add some moisturising benefits.
Eyes are a bit bolder-looking with Shimmer Cubes, €22. Three very strong shades and one neutral are included, in Sparkly Sky, Hushed Orchid, Sea Shell and Emerald Sea. These yokes are really pigmented- I have one from a couple of years ago and never fail to be amazed how good the payoff is. They tend to be - as the name'd suggest - shimmery, so best for night or as an accent to a smokey eye.
There's also a Lip and Cheek Stain, €13.95, in two shades, Rose Pink and Shimmering Coral.
Whaddya reckon? Will you pick anything up?
