It's a shame that in the Philippines, we only have two seasons: hot and hotter. It would have been so nice to actually have Spring, and not just ride on fashion and make up trends that come and go. Though at least, it is nice every now and then to delve into colors from spring and eventually incorporate it into my makeup.
[can you see her lips are shaped into a heart?]
It is time to embrace the beauty of spring. Revel in the new season’s style. Celebrate the fresh hues of nature. The Body Shop leads the way with the launch of the Nature’s Colour Collection, a gently contrasting range of hazy spring shades with soft, muted textures and innovative formats, including the new and unique Limited Edition Kiss of Colour Cheek Blush.
This Spring, make sure your eyes are sparkling with a wash of vibrant blues and greens, your lips are soft and shiny, anointed with an ethereal whisper of peaches and pinks and cheeks are a gorgeous shade of scintillating raspberry and coral. It is the season to look naturally gorgeous.
As you can probably tell, my favorite product of the bunch has to be the blusher. As the lovely and uber-funny Shen says, the blusher is perfect for just before entering the boardroom, two soft pats on the cheeks are all it takes and minimal blending and you're good to go. I've been using this for days now, I love how convenient it is to retouch on the fly and it smells yummy, too!
A truly versatile product, Lip & Cheek Stain has a cult following – and here is your chance to discover a new shade to give your cheeks and lips a healthy-looking glow. Use alone for fresh-faced allure or underneath the Kiss of Colour Cheek Blush or Hi-Shine Lip Treatment to intensify the look. Presented in a sleek bottle with easy-to-use sponge applicator, the product features Community Trade aloe vera, and restores moisture, smoothness and suppleness to skin. Available in 01 Rose Pink and the new LIMITED EDITION 03 Shimmering Coral, Lip & Cheek Stain is a make-up must-have for the new season.
Hi-Shine Lip Treatment delivers a wash of pretty glossy colour to lips with precision and ease. The high shine, skin-conditioning formula with Community Trade marula oil leaves lips looking irresistibly luscious. And the squeezable tube with rounded chiselled applicator means it is quick and simple to apply – perfect for girls in a hurry. Pucker up with two delicious, luminous shades - 06 Party Pink and Limited Edition 17 Golden Coral – for a sensational spring look.
Illuminate eyes with a stunning burst of iridescent colour. The Spring Trend Limit ed Editi on Shimmer Cubes are four luminous eye powders in a sparkling palette of Sparkly Sky, Hushed Orchid, Sea Shell and Emerald Sea. Perfect for turning daytime make-up into a stunning party look, these shimmering shades bring a vibrant intensity to the season’s style. Furthermore, to help care for the delicate skin around the eyes, the moisturising Shimmer Cubes contain moisturising Community Trade marula oil.
