The Body Shop – Brush with Fashion

I have been SO excited for this collection. So in every season of the year The Body Shop releases a Limited Edition makeup range and this one is super special for me because it was created in collaboration with my university!

The Body Shop have teamed up with University of the Arts London(woooo!!), London College of Fashion to create this range based on ‘on the go’ makeup. Every product in the range comes with a brush so its quick and easy to apply when your out and about. The Body Shop say - 'Brush with Fashion is the ultimate portable, ultra-stylish make-up in spring's irresistible colour palette. This must-have collection combines The Body Shop make-up know-how with London College of Fashion's cutting-edge fashion and design expertise. This on-trend make-up is ready to wear!'. I’ll show you what I picked up from the range!

Brush with Fashion Bag of Passion, Makeup bag in two sizes, Tailored Cheek tint and Eyeshadow palette in A La Mode (not pictured above).

Tailored Cheek Tint – So glad that TBS have done something creative like this. This little product is basically a cheek tint, which matches your own skin’s natural PH blushing colour. I don’t quite think that my natural blush is this pink, but its a cute colour and fun product none the less. Its comes with a brush applicator so you just squeeze some product out on to your finger and pat into the apples of your cheeks. The formula itself is a really silky gel and blends in nicely, but you need to act fast once its on so that your not left with an obvious splodge on your face! This retails at £8.50 for 10ml so its quite pricey but really cute and will probably last a while because it is quite pigmented.

Eyeshadow palette in A La Mode – I knew I had to get this as soon as I first saw it, the colours are perfect for my statement smokey eyes. These shadows are all really pigmented, the silver in particular is just stunning. The set also has a mirror, a black eyeliner and eyeshadow brush. Can’t ask for more! Quite pricey at £18 but your getting four shadows, a brush and mini liner so I think its worth it!

Makeup Bags – I’ve been using the big one to hold the makeup I wear daily and its perfect – LCF have obviously thought well about the kind of bags they use to hold their makeup and have designed it so that it zips all the way down and has material at the bottom to stop everything falling out (pictured above). The print is alright, pretty repetitive but it has my uni’s name on it so I don’t care, ahah! The bigger bag is £5 and the smaller one is £3.

Also in the range there are my two favourite Hi-Shine Lip-glosses with brush applicator (which I want), an Illuminating Face Base (which I want) and another Eyeshadow quad with brown shadows and a brown mini liner.

I really love this quirky range and it’s been really hard to resist buying it all. The range comes out on Wednesday 16th February in The Body Shop stores and will be available until it all goes (its Limited Edition remember).

Will you be purchasing from this range? Who else would you like to see collaborate with The Body Shop?

Please note I bought all of these products with my own money! xxx

  9. Great information! Thank you. I have a line of Skincare, www.stpierreskincare.com I am trying to find out who the Buyer is for The Body Shops and see if I can sit down and have them test my products. I hope you will visit my website and would appreciate any information you can give me. I am told L'Oreal owns The Body Shops? I worked for them for many years as a Makeup Artist, Model, Promo Rep., and L'Oreal sponsored me when I won Mrs. Texas America. Thank You for your help. Sincerely, Ava St.Pierre Cogburn email: pierrecosmetics@yahoo.com

  11. I can imagine that eyeshadow palette being a huge hit!!!
    I have a quad I made myself with eyeshadows from MAC's Chill collection (does anyone remember that collection?) and it's exactly along those lines - perfect for a smokey eye! ;)
    Enjoy your pretty products girl! :)

  12. cendana - Ohhhh Hopefully it will, do you have many of the same limited edition collections as us? XX

    Jennifer - The quad and bags are my fav from the range :) I've seen the little brush sets, they are very cute, perhaps in England they'll do that same offer too!

    CBSG- I'm really impressed with thier designs too! The cheek stain is amazing, I think that everyone will love it. XXX

    Laurestephanie - How did your interview go!!?? Was it for LCF? Good Luck!!!

    Vintage and Cake - Haha its dangerous for our purses! Glad you like the look of the range, will maybe do a tutorial of the quad!!

    CityGirlsFashionBox - I GO LCC TOO!!!! I'll look out for you! We should go for a cuppa tea in the cafe, ahah!! XX

    St.Pierre Cosmetics - I do know that L'Oreal now own the Body Shop but The Body Shop make their own products (they aren't like Boots/Superdrug where they stock different brands). So you could propose your idea of the product but I'm not really sure how it works! I'm sure you can contact head office via their website.

    Sarah - They're my two fav things from the range!! XX

    Tina - Ohhhh I'd love to see your MAC palette! I don't remember the Chill collection, sounded good though!! XXX
