The Body Shop Palette Creating a stir this Autumn!

Wow, where to begin! Little oh Back to you Beauty has been creating quite a stir on Social media recently! Can you believe it? A good girl like me! Of course it is all in the name of beauty – I don’t think any make up look I have ever created has received as many emails, Facebook comments or Instagram Stories remarks  as when i have worn this palette from The Body Shop!

The Body Shop Down to Earth Palette in 04

 I have been wearing one of the Brand New Down to Earth Quad palettes in shade 04 ever since I received it two weeks ago. I literally have people asking me what I am wearing Every.Single.Time and that has never happened as much to me before! To be honest, it is one of the most joyful palettes to use. Containing four highly pigmented, buttery smooth shadows, this is an absolute must have for all make up bags this Autumn and into the party season.

AThe Body Shop Down to Earth Palette 04 – Earthy shades of browns and purples

The Body Shop are celebrating their 40th Birthday this year and in my opinion if our eyes are the windows to our Soul then The body Shop are the doors to the Earth. As you step inside their store, take a moment to remember you are not just stepping into a cosmetics shop, but a life changing, empowering organisation that works incredibly hard to change the world for the better.

As The Body Shop turns 40 this year, I turn 42 and am thrilled that we have gone through infancy, puberty, teenage years, parenthood, fully fledged adulthood together and still show no signs of slowing down. The fact that, on a cosmetics level, The Body Shop can still excite me, can still be on trend, whilst staying classic, can still show me something new, each and every time I step in, is one thing. However, it is the way it educates me and my children through the power of the purchase and the information available within the store that continually amazes me.

They have recently had some incredible new launches which I am thrilled to be sharing with you via various upcoming posts and I hope it creates the buzz and excitement in you that it has in me.

Down to Earth Quad 04 Plum –

The Body Shop Down to Earth Palette 04 – Removable shadows

This substantial quad is an absolute must have for me at this time of year. Containing four large, removable shadows it has fast become my daily go to palette. Once you have purchased your Down to Earth palettes ( of which there is a choice of 5 quads) you can then click out the shades and chop and change them to create your perfect look, which is great especially if you are travelling.

The 04 palette I have contains a multitasking buttery matte highlight shade which works beautifully under the brow, in the corners of the inner eye and anywhere on your face you would like to create some light, a beautiful deep Purple, a satin Brown/mauve and a gorgeous, shimmery Nude which leaves the most delicate and pretty sparkle to the eye. The swatches do not do this justice at all – believe me! You really need to try it as the earthy colours change slightly within the light from warm browns through to deep aubergines.

The Body Shop Down to Earth Palette 04 Plum

This is sparkle for grown ups, and that is not me being patronising, that is me telling you, haha!! This is not Glitter but your most beautiful, shimmery, party palette, evening palette, glamorous palette and for me, day to day palette. Enriched with Community Trade Marula, Babassu and Seasame oils, these 100% vegan shadows feel so silky smooth on the eye. The shades can be worn alone or blended without any dragging or tugging and really bring our the colour of your eyes. The shadows can also be used wet without compromising the quality and are perfect as liner.

 I am completely blown away by this palette. Containing a full sized mirror in the lid and with a very satisfying snap as the compact closes, not only does it wear beautifully but looks gorgeous too.

As with all The Body Shop products you can be safe in the knowledge that only the purist, most natural and ethically sourced ingredient’s have been used, making them suitable for even those with sensitive eyes.
