Best makeup ever! Have only got two products- a lip and cheek stain and brush-on beads in buff. But, these look completely natural when on. Need to check the ingredients list, but the beads looked better on my skin than jane Iredale (maybe just my skintype?). But, very impressed with natural, clear-looking results. Could use the brush on beads for highlighting over own foundation, but i use a light covering all over for 'smoothing' - if that makes sense.
Cheek and lip stain- have never seen a product like this! Haven't tried it on cheeks yet (bit apprehensive) but fantastic on lips! Goes on with a watery texture- best on clean, dry, oil free lips- then dries to a gorgeous natural pink colour to highlight own lips. Both together (with vaseline over the lip stain) look very natural and lovely- just need to add eye makeup.
Has anyone else tried these? assume the body shop sells the same (or similar) products across the globe but not sure. Definitely recommended!

I am sure I used to have some Body Shop eye shadows which are not bad, they were not really my colours but the lasting power was OK.
When I was a kid I had the make-up brushes which were awful.
I must try some more make-up from this line, thanks for bringing it up Very Happy

It used to be called 'Colourings' or something, but a bit different now. Very impressed by quality of these two things, and will possibly try more in future. Probably worth trying again, although can be expensive. Have one brush too, and is lovely! Think they have definitely had an overhaul. Smile

The new brushline is great! Smile I also love the pressed powder and the pressed bronzer, which is very natural.

I just had a look on the Body Shop website and they have really overhauled all the make-up and the brushes. Argh really don't want to get into spending lots of make-up money Laughing
Just wondered what type of hair are the brushes made from, TBS is against animal testing and cruelty so will the brush hair be synthetic?

Not sure what it is made from, but feels wonderful. Should have checked maybe. By the way, what is better? Assume natural fibres (think I heard this) but why? The beads are wonderful, have been using them during the day to give light coverage. Although am not going back for awhile, I too do not wish to be talked into more purchases!
