Lily Cole for The Body Shop

Lily Cole has teamed up with The Body Shop to launch a Limited Edition cruelty-free make-up collection. The range contains no animal products and have never been tested on animals. But of course cruelty free/ethical cosmetics doesn’t mean it’s missing anything in innovation or gorgeous colours! The two stand-outs from the collection for me are the shimmer cube and the lip/cheek domes.

I love the combination of shades in the shimmer cube and how they each pop out in their own little plastic cubes, should you only want to carry one or two with you, you can – without mess. I actually used these a little like a snooker cube to swatch…using the cube to directly swatch to my skin. Although using this on the eyes you wouldn’t do it like that. 
The four shades are unusual but they really work – you could use the lilac and the peachy pink for day and the bronzy pink and dark brown for night, or any combination you like really… no rules and all that. Colour wise, there’s no glitter at all – just shimmer.

The lip and cheek dome is another interesting product – a light gel, that can be used on both lips or cheeks (as it says on the product…) it’s a very sheer product, for the swatch I had to swipe it a few times, but it can be built for a stronger colour. I like how sheer it is – it’s a lovely fresh cheek colour for a light weight summer shade. It’s also available in a coral/orange shade too.

    The cubes are a brilliant design idea – it must be so hard to come up with “new” packaging for cosmetics!!

    I’ve never been much of a fan of The Body Shop makeup, but that shimmer cube looks great, really pigmented colours. Might have to go have a nosey at the weekend…
