The Body Shop NEW Colour Crush Eyeshadows (swatches galore!)

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 21 - 2013

Wanna see some pretty swatches?  OF COURSE YOU DO.

The Body Shop have updated their colour collection with an impressively inclusive range of eyeshadows.  Their new Colour Crush Eyeshadow promises intensely pigmented, pearlescent or matt eyeshadow (dependant on colour) with a silky-soft texture .

I’m a huge fan of the “old” Body Shop eyeshadow range but have always disliked their “baked” (domed) eyeshadow releases.  The brand used to do some amazing taupes in the old silver-potted range and I was rather disappointed to see that this new incarnation of colour is rather lacking in that department.  I was pretty confident that the texture would still be as tasty as it always was (and it is) but I’m gonna need to see MOAR shades before I get super-excited over this new range I’m afraid!

Anyway, let’s get on with some swatches shall we?

All of the above shadows fall into their “pearlescent” finish, and each one is pretty well-pigmented, you wouldn’t need more instant payoff from an eyeshadow.  I can’t comment on the matte range as I haven’t tried.

Golden Girl is a must-have, not only because it makes a great lid-brightener for a neutral eye regardless of your colouring, but it’s also a pretty awesome NARS Albatross dupe for those on a budget.  Multi-functional eyeshadow FTW no?

I’ve worn a few of these over the past couple of weeks and my only caveat is that you do need to wear them with a primer.  The silky-texture is very forgiving on dry/mature eyelids but without primer, they migrate into the crease quite quickly.  The flipside to this is that you’d be hard-pressed to find easier blending from a high-street eyeshadow.

The Body Shop Colour Crush Eyeshadows are priced at £7.00 each and available instore and online at www.thebodyshop.co.uk

    Grape Expectations and Berry Cute for me please!

  2. gio says:

    Sweet Pea and Berry Cheeky are beautiful!

  3. I really liking that Sweet Pea colour, a really soft green which is rare to find to be honest ( I always find them too dark or too gold). x

  4. Jo says:

    They look lovely. Body Shop eyeshadows offer great performance for the money. Pink champagne (old now) is one of my all time favourites. Definitely keen to try a couple of these new ones!

  5. Sydney says:

    Ooh the grape is gorgeous. They all are for that matter.
    The Body Shop make up products are always a winner, great quality and not a bad price tag to boot!

  6. Siobhan says:

    Oh Caramel Flirt looks like a keeper! Grape Expectations also looks beautiful, can imagine it’d help make a very 1920’s-esque eye.

    Beautiful swatches! I will be grabbing up some of these 🙂 I really like how they group them too.

    Berry Cute and Golden Girl are my favorite. Although, I also like the Berry Cheeky, I just think that it’s kind of a hot pink and it wouldn’t look great with my eyes. Anyway, I still want to try the two shades that I want. Thanks for the photos, by the way. Great blog! Love it.

  10. Oh wow! These are so pretty; I especially like Sweet Pea. I recently moved to a city that actually has a Body Shop so I’ll have to keep an eye out for these. 🙂

    These are beautiful and mesmerizing to look at. Maybe one day i’ll be brave enough to wear them. 🙂
