I'm definitely not the first beauty blogger to have mentioned model/actress Lily Cole's limited edition collection for The Body Shop but I can't not write about my latest beauty love.
The collection, if you haven't come across it in your travels, has recently been released in Australia and, while it appears to be missing some items available elsewhere (please correct me if I'm wrong), it does feature the Lip & Cheek Dome I got on the weekend, a quad eyeshadow, a liquid eyeliner, and a dome of shimmer balls complete with puff for application. It's pretty sweet, like, so sweet your teeth might start to hurt.
I love the tropical hues of peach and coral and pink and lilac that make up this collection. The look Lily wears in the campaign reminds me of eating sorbet in summer.
I picked the Lip & Cheek Dome up in Pinch Me Pink and really love the used it as both this morning my the pinkish outfit and loved the creamy texture from the beeswax.
I love the flushed look it gives without drying my skin from a regular blush. When I tried it on my lips, I got a much more subtle colour, meaning that my lips and cheeks didn't match exactly but complemented each other.
The concept and design of the packaging is brilliant and a real treat to apply, although I'm still working out how to get the silky product onto a lip brush to properly apply it, but rubbing it onto the apples of my cheeks is just too much fun, it puts my usual cheek tint or powdered blush to shame, that's for sure!
In short, I love my new lip/cheek dome and suggest that you get some rosy pink action from The Body Shop before it all runs out! I might try the coral too, just because I'll probably love that too!
Lily Cole's Lip and Cheek Dome is $28.95 from The Body Shop while stocks last.
