The Body Shop Lily Cole Collection [Cruelty Free] Review, Swatches, Look

If you want pink & cute.... If you adore cutesy Korean/Etude House make-up products.... if you believe in Cruelty-Free make-up products.....take a look at The Body Shop Lily Cole Collection! All products are Limited Edition, so if you fancy anything, go get them before they are going.... gone!

The Body Shop Lily Cole Puff-On Radiance ~ The packaging is too cute! Shimmery beads in pink & gold tones packed in a transparent ball, accompanied by a baby pink fluffy puff with a bow. Swirl the puff on the beads, and dab it on your cheekbones, brow bone, nose bridge, collarbone & d├ęcolletage. I'm not a fan of shimmers & highlighters, but I sure want this sitting prettily on my vanity table. Price- Rs.1395.
The Body Shop Lily Cole Shimmer Cubes ~ Come in 4 iridescent shades: 01 Think Pink, 02 Live Lilac, 03 Go Violet, 04 Tint It Pink. They are tightly packed, like baked eyeshadows, so they won't look so pigmented on first swatch/application. They look nice alone, but better over another strong eyeshadow. I find the packaging very interesting- how each cube is encased it it's own plastic glass house. The cubes are quite big, and they will last a long long time. Price- Rs.1495.
The Body Shop Lily Cole Hi-Shine Lip Treatment Nude ~ It's a pale peach shade with gold shimmer, and smell like mangoes (yum!) It's not overly sticky, and only mildly sweet. This is a tiny 6ml- sized tube. Available in 4 shades. Price- Rs.400.
The Body Shop Lily Cole Liquid Liner 20 Ink Up Violet ~  This violet colored eye liner comes with a felt tip applicator for easy control- especially to wing out the liner. It's long-lasting & smudge-resistant. I'd rarely used this kind of color to line my eyes, and I quite liked how it looked against my light brown eyes. The consistency is neither too thick nor runny, it's just right.  BUT definitely overpriced! Price-Rs.795.
The Body Shop Lily Cole Lip & Cheek Dome 21 Crazy For Coral ~ This a cream-to-powder color for lips & cheeks. I was disappointed with it, because it is too light to show up on my skin tone + it looked too chalky on my lips. Available in another shade- Pinch Me Pink, which would've have been a better shade, I guess. Price- Rs.895.
 The Body Shop Lily Cole Compact Mirror ~ 2 mirrors, 1 magnifies (Hello, giant pores!) At first, I thought it's a sticker on there, but yippee it's not! Thankfully, it's not heavy, very handy. Although, I wish it was PINK! Sigh. Price- Rs.545

All-in-all, a very cute, very nice collection. I'd say, the only drawback is the prices.
What do you think? Buying anything or Skipping everything?

  6. I absolutely love the highlighter shade! So sweet and pretty! Also a huge fan of the peachy pink shimmer shade, I love peachy pinks on the eyes, they give such a brightness! Glad to see you're having a great time with body shop goodies, I'm not a huge fan but I do want to try more of their bases!

  8. What cuteness! I'm definitely getting the Lip Treatment. I have brown eyes too, so might get the eyeliner also, but IDK its so overpriced. That Puff on Radiance is way too tempting but sadly no use for a makeup impaired person like me.

  9. Everything looks so nice on you :) Are you wearing the shimmer cubes as your eyeshadow? Coz ur eyes look awesome. Would love to get the violet eyeliner. Do you think it would look good on tan NC40 skintone?

    1. Yes, I am. Wearing everything shown. I think it would look nice, a good alternative for brown. Just apply a shimmery shadow on the lids to bring it out.

  16. On what occasions do women wear eyeshadow? I don't see many using it for going out for dinner or shopping. What colors would you suggest for darker skin than yours?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I wear eyeshadow everyday :). On darker skin tones, any color really. It just depends on preference. If u want neutral shades: light brown,dark chocolate brown, black, etc

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
