Discovering The Body Shop

Good morning Dolls,
Happy Friday! A few days ago I had the pleasure of checking out an exclusive spring makeup line for The Body Shop. I usually don’t talk about make up on my blog BUT I have to share this with you. The make-up is wonderful!
“Discover what happens when make-up meets fashion! New from
The Body Shop for spring 2011 comes ‘Brush With Fashion’, a new
cruelty-free, fashion-forward make-up and accessories collection. This
limited-edition collection with built-in brushes, Community Fair Trade
ingredients and covetable packaging was created in collaboration with
the internationally-acclaimed London College of Fashion.
Just as you’d expect from The Body Shop, every make-up product in
the ‘Brush With Fashion’ collection features high-quality naturally derived
ingredients - such as marula oil from Namibia - which are
sourced through The Body Shop unique Community Fair Trade program.
This pioneering fair trade initiative, now celebrating its twenty-third
year, ensures that suppliers are justly rewarded for their skill and
expertise. Sourced from the Owumbo women of Namibia, marula oil is
a very effective moisturizer. Trade with The Body Shop has allowed the
5,000 female entrepreneurs who make the oil to build their own factory,
gaining economic independence and a new-found self-esteem.”
How awesome is that ladies! You aren’t only wearing make up to look fabulous, but you are contributing to the community and giving back. Stop by your local The Body Shop to check it out!!! Oh and the prices are just perfect! You will be surprised!

That is not all! I had the awesome opportunity of getting my make up done by Shalini Vadhera, a celebrity and global makeup artist. She is also the author of “Passport to Beauty: Secrets and Tips from Around the World for Becoming a Global Goddess.” OMG, she was so sweet and gave me amazing beauty tips! I will share with you some products that I am obsessed with that I recommend to you ladies:
1) Limited Edition Hi-Shine Lip Treatment (in a beautiful peachy color)

2) Limited Collection for Eyes- Boho Beauty (Available in 2 color palettes)

3) ******In love with their Concealer!!!! “It’s a range of luxuriously creamy, lightweight, wax-based concealer pencils that blends easily to effectively cover blemishes and conceal redness. Available in a variety of shades to suit most skin tones, and Dermatologically tested.It is the best I’ve ever tried, really. I wish I could send you all a sample, lol!
