Review: Body Shop Lily Cole Collection and the Advocacy

I am a fan of Body Shop. My first makeup brush set's from them. I bought quite a lot of their makeup and body products from body washes, body butters, to lotions, lip liners, eye liners and eyeshadow palettes. So when they released the Lily Cole Limited Edition Series, I went to a shop in Yishun Singapore and bought a few items. I believe it is cheaper when you buy it in Philippines though. Lily Cole by the way is a well-known activist, model and actress. She is  The Body Shop’s new brand advocate and part of their collaboration with Lily Cole, The Body Shop launched a new limited edition cruelty-free make-up range. Celebrating their against animal testing ethos, all their make-up including this range of products contains no animal products and hasn’t been tested on animals. This collection was launched on July 9. I really don't want to post this because these items may not be available already in the market but I know sometimes they do massive clearance sales, maybe available, so I thought  this review may help you decide.



WHAT I SAY:
Lily Cole Lip and Cheek Dome in 20 Pinch Me Pink
One Word. AWESOME! I use this as my everyday blusher. I just dab onto cheeks straight from the dome and blend using clean fingertips. This is the best I have ever used so far. The texture is  creamy, smooth, giving you a fresh dewy look.The actual color is very pretty and subtle when you blend it out. It is not that pigmented so it gives a natural pinkish glow on your cheeks. Layer to build up color. The only thing is that you may re-apply twice or thrice because it does fade very easily but it does not bother me at all. And because it is a limited edition, I should have bought extra!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED @ SGD24.90 (Php871.00).
10ml (0.33 US FL OZ)

Lily Cole Hi-Shine Lip Treatment
I got this at SGD8.90 (Php311.00)each. Available in 4 different shades but opted to buy 01 Go Naked and 02 Go Wild. The smell is sweet like fruit candy which I love. As expected, these lip glosses are quite sticky, best for lip highlight only. The color is not that pigmented, so if you want a natural shine  on your lips, this is good for you. As buying helps 5,000 women in Namibia build their self- esteem, their home and this is natural hand-selected Marula fruits, I decide to buy this.

Lily Cole Pearl Radiance Primer
The packaging is super attractive.The beads are beautiful. It does give a pearl radiant effect but the a face primer should control the oil and let your makeup set  longer on your face. I find it ok on my skin but I hate that I still have to blend it so well because as you can see the second picture below that it's quite messy so I recommend you to blend it smoothly. NOT THAT GREAT for SGD32.90 (Php1,151.00) BUT RECOMMENDED because it's natural, cruelty-free and again the fact that it helps 5,000 women in Namibia.
Hi-Sine Lip Treatment: 6ml, Ingredients: Community Fair Trade marula oil in Namibia
Pearl Radiance Primer: 15ml, Community Trade Marula and Nut Oil, aloe vera




 I think I am done here. I hope this review helped you and open your eyes that there are great things to thank and appreciate life. KEEP ON BELIEVING!!!
