The Body Shop Spring Collection 2009

I admit that I occasionally get tempted by the cosmetic offerings at The Body Shop although I do still stand by my right to say I find them vastly overpriced! Wince! It's The Body Shop not Sephora after all right? But aside from that I have picked up quite a few pieces here and there that I have been quite pleased with and in all honesty some have even became staple products.

The Body Shop Spring Collection definitely keeps in the theme of Spring with soft shades of pink that I'm sure you'll fancy!

I have my eye on the darker of the two blushes that's for sure but I think I can probably safely skip everything else!

What do you think?

Want any of this collection?

Skipping it in favor of something else?

Tell the Muse!

I want the first blushie! And beh at the eyeshadows - pastels look shitty on me. I need more neutrals.

yeap! i am eyeing on the blusher too!
TBS occasionally comes up with briliant items, but most of the time, you can skip them. :)

i agree that many of their items are overpriced. the quality kind of lacks for a price like that.

but on another note the blushers and shadows do intrigue me. im a sucker for those kinds of blues and the shadow in the promo pic looks very nice as well.

That light pink blush looks divine!!! I just got into The Body Shop stuff, so I'll probably end up buying one thing from this collection (one of those lipsticks looks nice too!!) :)

Oh I absolutely love the collection! You have to at least get one of the blushes and a cuple of lipsticks :) The lipsticks are quite sheer and "buttery".

I'm a huge Body Shop fangirl, but I usually only get their lipgloss, which is amazing. I'll check out these blushes. Don't hate on the Body Shop, they are such a great company for working for fair prices for workers and being against animal testing and for the environment! For all that I love Sephora I don't get the same sense of wellbeing when I walk into the store.

hi ceci! Agreed 100%! It's very hit and miss and the quality doesn't always measure up to the price! I def want the blush but a tad worried the shadows will be a bit sheer! must swatch :)

LOL Anitacska!

That's perfectly alright! I'm of the mind that we should all indulge in just about everything cosmetic hehe!

I'm eyeing the very same blush! It's so lovely! I can't help but be tempted by the powder blue eyeshadow even though I know I won't be able to work it! It just looks so sweet and cute! >_< I adore the promo photo too - it's the perfect flirty spring look! ^_^

I love ittttt Ghoulina :) I just hope it's not frosty...TBS always have that soft frosty finish on blushes. I like the shadows and love pastels but for some reason these don't appeal :)
