As spring has allegedly sprung, I thought I’d break out some colours on the blog – well it makes a change from sludges and reds, I guess! The redeveloped Colour Crush Eyeshadows from the Body Shop have been on counters for a little while now, they’re really pretty and I’ve actually been impressed with the texture, so I thought it was about time they made an appearance.
As you can see, I was sent quite a collection, here we have:
Top row: Sweet Pea, Boyfriend Jeans & Berry Cute
Middle: Grape Expectations, Berry Cheeky & Blackcurrant Affair
Bottom: Golden Girl & Caramel Flirt
This is a really nice set of colours, they’re fairly pigmented, and are soft and velvety in use, I’ve not experienced much fallout with them, either.
I’ve swatched them here with my finger over bare skin, so you can see how pigmented they are in normal use – the colours are brighter over a primer, of course, but I know a lot of my readers don’t use eyeshadow primers:
Bright, eh? And even brighter with a primer! My picks from this set of shades would be Grape Expectations, and Golden Girl (as a highlighter), and possibly Blackcurrant Affair, but that’s just me.
The shadows last quite well, but if you wear them on bare skin they will fade rather quickly (within a couple of hours). At seven pounds per shade, they’re fairly bargainacious too …
