Backstage with The Body Shop


Hey dolls! Today I had the opportunity to go backstage of the Spijkers en Spijkers show of LFW with The Body Shop. I had a sneak peek of the new eyeshadow range that will be coming out next february (below) and I also had a little chat/interview with The body shops' Head makeup artist Lan, she also gave me a mini-makeover!



I had a swatch and a play around with the new shades (Also in new packaging) They are super pigmented and easily blendable, Im excited for them to be released!



This was during my chat with Lan about the products she was using for this show and she also showed me some tips and tricks as she went along. The eyeshadows/blushes above are the most used this season. Lots of bright, pastel shades. I wish I was brave enough to try these out myself - This fashion week they have been used on not only the eyes but the cheeks and lips too.


I loved the colour of this lip liner she tried on me, Its a reddish/magenta colour and I adore shades like this at the moment, also perfect for A/W


Afterwards I chowed down on some Itsu, I had never been there before so was a little apprehensive about what they 'do' there but it was SO yum! I had the Seven veg Potsu with brown rice, I recommend it!

I hope you found this little sneak peek interesting! I haven't got alot of The body shop makeup at the moment but the more I see and learn about it the more I want to grow my collection! I am now wanting the liquid highlighter they do as it was gorgeous swatched.

I was also able to watch the catwalk show which was such a great experience, I will be doing another post on that all together! There's just so much to show!

That black is crazy pigmented

Also, I approve of the new Stila perfume, good girl ;) It's my go-to scent, but I prefer last years packaging

You're so stunning, Sammi! The colours look amazing.
I've never actually tried any of The Body Shop's beauty products, except for a foundation (which was far too dark for me).
Definitely will be having a look at this collection. Great post! :)

Porcelain Eleanor said...

wow, those shadows look so pigmented!! I can't wait until they come out! If you wanted to get more bodyshop makeup I'd definitely recommend the lily cole collection, I loved it, especially the primer, radiance pearls and lip and cheek domes. The bodyshop are always great for offers as well, if you sign up to their emails they always send me great deals! :)
