I'm in two minds about this product, ordinarily I wouldn't have bought it as its full price is quite high and I suppose thats the reason I wouldn't but it again because it's not that amazing. However I do like the product. Its a kind of watery consistancy that dries very quickly do be sure to rub in fast. On the cheeks I find it quite hard to blend out, so although the colour it's nice and natural, harsh edges make it look a bit funny. Although maybe I just need more practice in adopting it. On the lips this product is easier to apply, but you need two or three costs of it to really notice the colour, but after that it really does look great for a nice natural day product. Overall an ok product, difficult to apply, but if manage can look good.
Cannot tell you how much I love this brush! I got it with alot of other Body Shop stuff I got this week online using a 50% off voucher, so I got this brush fairly cheap. However I have to say that for the quality of this brush, even fully priced it is really worth it, especially considering prices of other more "high end" brushes. First off this brush is incredibly soft, truly a gorgeous brush to sweep across your face. It's a medium sized rounded brush, that when new is a little flat, not big and puffy. I actually like this quality as the tip is quite narrow so its good for applying powder around the nose/eyes. I really do like this brush for powder, although it's obviously great for brush too. It smooths and blen Ids product on really well. I've washed this brush twice now and it had not shed at all and has retained it's lovely shape and softness. The other thing I really like about this brush is the handle, its nice and long and chunky, perfect for accurately applying blush where you want it. Over all an amazing amazing brush, would highly highly recommend!
This powder is amazing. I got a nice haul from Body Shop this week using a 50% off code they sent me, without which I probably wouldn't have bought this product because for me, as a student, it's full price is a little too high for me to try it usually. The powder however, is lovely. It's extremely fine ( I got the 02 shade), it goes in very smooth, soaks up oil well throughout the day and doesn't make you face look cakey. So all good! Only little niggle is the filter lid, which doesn't really work that well, alot of powder always comes out so wastage its a problem. Overall a very good powder for setting foundation/concealer, would buy again.
