Blush by 'The Body Shop'
For around a year or so I'd been really looking into the body shop products.. At first I was really put off by the fact that they're cruelty free but not vegan. And don’t even get me started about their parent company being L’oreal. L’oreal are not cruelty free OR vegan presumably so they can sell product in China. I never bought anything from The body shop for these reasons until I realised that supporting their vegan products actually IS good for the overall cause... I say this because basically it’s like ‘every vote counts’. Buying vegan products regardless of the parent company and other similar details is just like making a vote and by adding an extra number to the vegan stats while also not supporting their other products I am increasing the numbers against non vegan cosmetics, and therefore making a contribution to this movement and the future of cruelty free and vegan products in the world. So in a nutshell, that's why I feel good about it now.
I started to find out which products they sold that were vegan and basically did the typical paint my entire hand with makeup trial trip.
In store you can ask for a copy of their bigger catalogue which has a v next to all vegan friendly body shop products.
I did actually find a lot of their products to be really good, better than I had anticipated, not to mention the price! Wow, I was really stuck on their prices. So far I've bought, that I use regularly 3 lip liners, angle eyeliner brush and a blush.
The lipliners are good but the blush is divine!
This is one of my favourite blushes now and I would use this on most of my clients.
The dual colour tones are beautiful and blend in with nearly every look. The shimmer, not excessive but still has that beautiful glow and highlight.
I have used a lot of blushes but this one is my favourite to date at a fraction of the cost at $25.95 usd.
So with that said, I give it an 8/10
