New Hauls: The Body Shop Limited Edition Precious Pearlescents Collection

I'm back. Am a little reluctant to update actually. Just been feeling so restless lately. :(

Anyway, have you checked out the latest Limited Edition Precious Pearlescents Collection by The Body Shop?

(Drats. As I'm feeling restless, I can't be bothered to find a picture of the entire collection to upload. :( Sorry.)

If you haven't, be sure to drop by your nearest The Body Shop store. Cos this collection is so drool-worthy.

I ran to the nearest store to pick it up after seeing it on Cozycot forum. I picked up the Blush Trio in 01 Cool Dusk and the Eyeshadow Trio in 01 Moonlight Lustre.

These are baked eyeshadow/blush but they are not mineralized like maybe MAC's. They are super gorgeous in real life. I have to admit, these are really just impulse buys because they are too pretty to resist. I picked out Cool Dusk first, but got another $10 rebate voucher so I splurged it on the eyeshadow. :P

Blush Trio in 01 Cool Dusk comes in 3 shades: a light shimmery pink, a medium bright dolly pink, a lilac pink (which just seems like light pink to me). I can't remember how it looks like when it's mixed together but basically this is a very pink blush (which makes me ponder why I bought it as I'm more of a peach girl). The blush looks shimmery in swatches but on the face, it's not. The finish would be like a frosty/pearl finish with a nice sheen. It gives the cheeks a nice glow. The colour is buildable as this blush trio is more sheer as compared to the other in 02 Warm Sunset. The lighter shades work as a very nice highlighter. As for the bright dolly pink shade , it doesn't really work well on my yellow skin. :( But still, I think I can get it to work since it can applied on sheer.

Eyeshadow Trio in 01 Moonlight Lustre comes in 3 shades: a metallic green, a metallic bluish gray, a metallic light purple (almost lilac) shade. These colours are very metallic and quite shimmery. I don't find them to be super pigmented if I use it without any base. They do go on well but the colour doesn't stand up. Would definitely recommend using a cream base or using them wet to get better payoff. Personally, I really like this trio. They are actually quite wearable on a daily basis. They may be shimmery but it's not so overbearing. I actually like that they are metallic colours. Very pretty trio that you can use from day to night to create many looks.

I can't decide which one I like more.
I'm actually considering getting the other blush and eyeshadow trio in the collection. Ahh... Lemming for them. But I do find them quite pricey. :( The blush is SGD $36.90 and the eyeshadow trio is SGD$28.90. I wouldn't recommend getting them unless you can get them at a good discount or have vouchers to use.

The new collection also consists of 5 eyeliners and a new range of lipsticks which seem really creamy.

If you need more information or better swatches of this collection, just look it up on Youtube. A bunch of Youtube gurus actually got the whole collection for free just to review. Am so jealous.

Also you can watch this video for creating looks.
