The Body Shop is a brand I love for skin, hair & body care products. I have been shopping from them for more than 5 years now. I have also tried couple of their makeup products like Color Crush Lipsticks etc. This time I got two single eyeshadows and really liked the formula. I have The Body Shop Colour Crush Eye Shadow in Berry Cheeky (310) & Midnight Kiss(015).
An intensely pigmented, pearlescent or matt eyeshadow (dependant on colour) with a silky-soft texture . It’s easy to blend and great for building layers of colour. Dermatalogically and Ophthalmologically tested. Suitable for lens wearers
Packaging – Colour Crush Eye Shadow comes in a transparent plastic compact. These are quite small (1.5g) and can be carried in handbag. Due to clear lid, you can see the color inside and pick the one you would like to wear.
Shades – I have two of these –
Berry Cheeky – A bright pink with satin finish
Midnight Kiss – Matte Black with a bit of gold shimmer. The shimmers aren’t visible much, you have to look very closely to spot them. The shade is quite dark and we all know how important & useful a good matte black eyeshadow is 🙂
Texture & Formula – I don’t like shimmery shades however the pink one is a beautiful satin & black is a beautiful matte formula. Despite of being matte, Midnight kiss doesn’t feel powdery or chalky and blends beautifully. I have used it to create a smokey eye look recently and loved the results. There were no fall outs, which surprised me !
Berry Cheeky is also quite creamy and blends nicely. Pink on the eye lids can be tricky and you have to really careful. The shimmer present in the eye shadows doesn’t feel gritty or blingy.
Pigmentation – Colour Crush Eye Shadow Midnight Kiss is very pigmented. The above swatch is one swirl of finger in the pan, It is matte and very pigmented ! Berry Cheeky is decently pigmented, however I think one would need a good base for it to show up well.
Staying Power – On a base both the eyeshadows last for good 6+ hours.
The Body Shop Colour Crush Eye Shadow 015, 310 are priced at Rs 695 each.
The Body Shop Colour Crush Eye Shadow range has a lot of shades to choose from. You get a good size for Rs 695 alongwith the compact/ case. I liked the formula & texture of both the shades, specially Midnight Kiss. I am surely going to check out rest of the shades as well. There is no cons as such except for the price.
