The Body Shop launches new All-In-One Cheek Colour blushes

27 Sep

I’m crazy about The Body Shop’s Baked-To-Last blush in Petal is one of my make-up bag staples. Still, their other ‘regular’ blushes have needed a bit of a shake up for a while now; the colours were too similar and too few. Thus, I’m glad they’ve just brought out a new selection called All-In-One Cheek Colour blushes (R120 each).

I was given Guava, a nice cool (but not too cool) blue-based pink to try.

I liked that it’s nicely pigmented, goes on smoothly and is easy to ‘build’. The colour is similar to MAC’s Pink Swoon but a little darker and less blue-toned, despite looking tres blue in my shot.

I’m wearing it in this shot and have applied it quite generously but it still looks pretty, natural and sheer.

As for the whole ‘All-In-One’ thing, it’s a reference to the fact that it contains antioxidant vitamin E as well as hydrating marula oil to qualify as ‘make-up and skin care in one’.

If you’re near a store, pop in to check out the shades; there are a whopping ten of them in total. Also, they’re actually part of an even bigger collection, the All-In-One range that includes the store’s new BB cream.

    Leigh, you totally rock! Just wanted to say a HUGE thanks for your blog on the iLipo!! It convinced me to talk my hubby into paying for eight sessions. I told him no ways am I wearing a bikini sans t-shirt this summer unless he kaks and betaals. Well have just had my second session and have lost 19cm in totes. I feel bad because I didnt realise how much fat I was carrying, but great cos its gone and 6 more sessions to go! Yay!! Now to armwrestle hubby into that new bikini I spotted at Truworths …..I would never have dared try iLipo without reading about your experience so – THANK-YOU!!

    Hi Leigh.
    The blush looks great and suits your skintone! If I may ask, are you wearing BB cream or a foundation and what is that awesome lip colour?

      Dankie man! I’m a foundation girl; was wearing Clinique’s Even Better foundation in that shot (found a big sample I’d forgotten about in my draw this morning) with Guerlain Parure Crystal Pearl foundation compact powder dusted everywhere with a big kabuki brush; that’s what really provides most of the coverage, it’s nice and heavy but still looks natural. The gloss is MAC Flashmode which I LOVE. It looks nude-ish in that pic but it’s actually more of a sheer fuchsia; been wearing it for years now x x

    I have this in Macaroon and the colour is just fab! Great texture too, much improved from their previous range of blush.
