I’ve been a bad blogger recently, I was really slacking at the end of last month and I photographed so many of my new products to blog them but just couldn’t summon the enthusiasm. I’m back at it now so catching up with some of the pictures I took with my darker hair – not to confuse you. This is something I have heard so many bloggers say they love and honestly I think if it had been any other brand I’d have bought it months ago but The Body Shop makeup just doesn’t excite me. It’s on the expensive end, the packaging is plain and (sorry) boring. It’s also a totally standalone brand so I have to make a concerted effort to go and get it FROM The Body Shop unlike everything else that I can pick up at the same time from Boots – usually on 3 for 2. The only time I find their prices to be reasonable are when they run their big sales online but then again I have to buy multiple things from this one brand to benefit. Honestly I think if they sold their beauty concession in Boots/Superdrug more people would buy.
Moving on from my TBS rant this particular product is really, very nice. I love the honeycomb embossed powder, the shade (light) is just the right tone for my pale skin and at half price (which is what I paid) I would buy it again. It’s a nice countour or all over bronzer if you’re looking to warm up your face to match your face tan 😉 and although the packaging is dated it’s very compact.
Do any of you buy makeup from TBS? I don’t hear anything negative about it but something about it just doesn’t appeal to me the same way that other budget brands do.
