I've never been one of those ladies blessed with a tan, of any description. Apart from a brief stage I used sun beds once a week to help my spotty little face (something to do with the lights being similar to that expensive light therapy treatment I think, worked anyway). That was until I realised the health risks involved with sun beds and the fact a mole grew into a little nubbin concerned me too much to continue, so alas, my legs bear a resemblance to that of a frozen chicken and my complexion with the wrong make up can make me look a little ill. Anyway, long story short, I'm pale. That's why I got a little bit excited when I noticed this new range of Make Up in The Body Shop by the queen of pale Lily Cole.
The excitement was set to be short lived though as when I raced home to try the products I couldn't help but be ever so slightly disappointed. It's not often I succumb to blogging hype but when I do I hate it when the products end up to be so incredibly, for want of a better word, boring. I was definitely taken in by aesthetics this time, especially the Pearl Radiance Primer which looked so stunning in the bottle. It's like a load of little pink pearls are hanging in a gel like substance, it looked MAGICAL at the very least. The second product I chose from the range was the Lip and Cheek Dome in 'Pinch me Pink', an item chosen purely for the novelty factor. It just looked pretty cute, but that's about all it is; cute looking. If I wanted something that just looked cute I'd go buy a freakin' puppy!
