Lean in, and listen to the story of a neutral loving lady waaaay obsessed with shimmery shades of brown.
She’s called Nomadic Goddess, and she grew weary of seeing so many neon hot pinks and purples hog the stage.
One day, she decided to steal the spotlight!
Today I checked out a few of the earthy tones that make up The Body Shop’s Nomadic Goddess makeup collection for summer 2010.
Italian Baked-to-Last Bronze ($19, available in three shades)
I tried the middle shade, 03. Tiny flecks of golden shimmer in the powder diffuse the appearance of fine lines on the face. For the price, I think the powder could have been milled finer because I can see it sitting on top of my skin. But once it’s been buffed in, it bestows a subtle warm glow that makes me look like I just spent the afternoon hiking in the hills with LC and Audrina. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B
Italian Baked-to-Last Eye Color in 01 ($14, available in three shades)
The moon pattern on pans of these shimmery duos makes them a dead ringer for the MAC Mineralize Eyeshadow Duos from last year’s Magic, Mirth and Mischief collection, but these are sheerer and exhibit more shadow fallout. On the positive side, I like how easy 01 is to blend. I’m totally sold on the shimmery copper and brown and how naturally beautiful they look on the eyes. If you’re interested, look for these shadows in stores, as they aren’t yet available through The Body Shop USA website. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B
Delipscious Sheer Lip Color in 08 Sheer Saffron ($12, available in seven shades)
This shimmery copper is part of a new collection of sheer TBS lipsticks made with vegetarian ingredients. It feels light, without any flavor or scent, and deliciously moisturizing on my lips. Oh, and like the Baked-to-Last Eye Colors, you won’t find these on The Body Shop USA website, so peep the stores if you’re game. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B+
What do ya think? Are any of these piquing your interest? I was undecided at first, but now I’m beginning to come around.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Yay! It’s almost the weekend. Do you have any plans for Memorial Day?
