The Body Shop Ltd. Edition Lily Cole Makeup – The Pearl Radiance Primer, Lip & Cheek Dome, and Shimmer Cubes

It’s a pretty-in-pink party, no doubt, and the UK’s lovely Lily Cole makes her mark as The Body Shop’s endorser for this cute, young, and fun cosmetic collection.  I was given 3 items from the collection to try, the Lip and Cheek Dome in Pinch Me Pink, the Radiance Primer, and the Lily Cole Shimmer Cubes quad (eyeshadow).

I had a great natural light moment when shooting this photo, the sun shone exactly where I needed it to.  Consider this a simple introduction to one of The Body Shop’s youngest and most hip makeup collections yet.  Read more to get the full post and more photos.

CLOSED: My Body Shop Banana-Split Beauty Nationwide Giveaway – The Blog’s “Yummiest” Treats yet! ‘Til June 25

I haven’t seen a giveaway as “yummy” as this just yet.  I thought up a concept for a NATIONWIDE giveaway to make it more fun to present visually (I like doing that) and I have been craving and missing something I tasted when I was in elementary, when the Baskin Robbins Ice Cream parlor was still at Alabang Town Center, their classic, never underwhelming Banana Split.  Chocolate, Vanilla, and Strawberry ice cream flanked by bananas.  I thought a Banana Split would be a great concept for a giveaway considering I had these Body Shop goodies on hand, they complete the dish sans the cherry on top.  This giveaway will close on the evening of June 25th and the mechanics are at the end of this post.

From Left: The Body Shop Banana Conditioner, Strawberry Body Butter, Chocomania Body Scrub, and coming soon to stores in other scents as well, their Vanilla Body Mist. 

Sorry, can’t get that dessert out of my head, but I’m telling you all these Body Shop products are really lovely.  Read more for the giveaway mechanics and my thoughts on the prizes.… To full post & COMMENTS...

The Body Shop marks down my Wonder Years item, their Lip & Cheek Stain

I think I went through 3 or 4 tubes of these between high-school and college, they were the one thing besides Clinique Almost Lipstick that Mom allowed me to wear.  Heads up!  These Body Shop babies are a local favorite and have high-dived into the SALE pool from Php795-Php395!

Back then it was like having a vial of blood rouge on hand and you knew the color would match any skintone light or dark and make you look naturally flushed.  On the lips using the magic wand you could be Snow White versus the Queen for a day (movie plug) with a defiant red tinged pout, plus, if on the surface things are getting a bit dry and chapped before Happily Ever After…

…you may just want to whack some Strawberry Born Lippy on, they’re on sale at the moment at Php195 but they may only have the old designed ones on sale, same pot different label design from this updated one above (from the regular price of Php250).  I’m not 100% sure if it’s an ALL BRANCHES thing with the Born Lippy promo, but for sure at The Body Shop Glorietta 3 the mark down is definitely on your Donkey Kong.  I have a more in-depth Body Shop event post coming up so keep hovering and read!!  For more information check out and Like The Body Shop Philippines FB Page.
