The Body Shop Coconut Body Mist & Lily Cole Violet Liquid Liner

Body Mist

The Body Shop has launched a set of eight lightly fragranced Body Mists which are perfect for Summer in Coconut, Pink Grapefruit, Mango, Strawberry, Vanilla, Moringa, Satsuma and Shea. 

Despite my despicably sweet tooth, I am not fond of sweet smells and while I do treat myself to the giant tub of Body Shop Coconut Body Butter each Summer, this smells stronger to me - it’s just toooo sweet & coconuty for my taste.  Loads of you will love it, I know (including friends I’ve tried this out on), so I thought I’d share it with you anyway!

I’ll most definitely treat myself to one or two of the others - and particularly like the sound of Pink Grapefruit, Moringa and Shea. (Body Shop’s Shea Body Butter is my all time favourite body moisturiser - you can see my review of the Coconut & Shea butters HERE).

The mist is fine and cooling on the skin and I do like to spritz myself all over with a product like this on Summer days (that’ll be any day now!) and can even imagine popping this in my beach bag (imagining is as far as I’ll get since I’m not going anywhere).

Body Mists cost £7 at The Body Shop UK or 11.95 euro

 

Lily Cole Violet Liquid Eyeliner

Part of the Lily Cole collection for Body Shop, this violet liquid eyeliner is luscious!

The wand has a slightly flexible fine point, but isn’t too thin, which makes it a bit easier to use.

It has a fabulous fine fuchsia shimmer, which I struggled to capture on camera when dry, so here it is wet. The metallic sheen is actually still visible in the light when dry and creates a gorgeous effect.

Violet purple liquid eyeliner

Heavy swatch, top and single swipe, bottom; it really does need two layers for the full effect.

This is a really wearable shade and is colourful without being too in your face.  I love it in a single thick cat-eye flick with fuchsia lips, or blended with my Chanel D’Ombre Illusoire for a purpley smokey eye.

There are some other lovely pieces in this collection - if you fancy treating yourself to some Body Shop makeup it’s currently on a 3 for 2 offer.

Lily Cole Liquid Eyeliner is £9 at The Body Shop UK or 13.95 euro
