The Body Shop Haul / April's brand of the Month

I got this gift package from The body shop Egypt. It consisted of a few items that i really loved to try out.

The Package includes: Sun Lustre brush, eye shadow brush, Extra virgin minerals Compact foundation, Extra Virgin minerals loose powder foundation, Eye Shimmer eyeshadow in 08 Emerald.

Sun Lustre brush: A compact, super-soft brush for use with bronzer. It applies a fine, even dusting of colour. I use it for blush & bronzer. It is a must have in every kit.

Eyeshadow brush: A flat brush with a tapered head for precise, even application of powder and cream eye colours since its made of synthetic hair. The brush is small enough to reach my highlight color in the inner corner of my eyes and my brow bones. Again, a must have for any girl, a perfect tool for begginer use.

Extra virgin minerals Compact foundation: Cream foundation in a compact contains pure minerals and cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil for an immaculate, matte finish. It has an ultra-blendable formula. Its portable as you won't have to worry about your liquid foundation breaking in your makeup bag while traveling. It has medium to high builable coverage. High staying power with a great matte/flawless finish. However, it goes on streaky and wet, it does turn into powder after a while, but with those streaks I couldn't tell if I blended well or not. Also, I usually through away any brushes that comes with makeup compacts like powder or foundation, but the brush that comes along with the foundation is really good compared to other brands. I just don't think it suits my combination skin and wouldn't defintly suit oily skin either. It flaked on my T-zone, while on the rest of my normal, oil-free face it was perfect. I find it is purley created for normal to dry skin. I got mine in 108 golden Ivory, which is an ivory beige with yellow undertones, which, I think, is perfect for middle-eastern complexion. There are 8 shades to choose from.

Extra Virgin minerals loose powder foundation: This featherlight powder base gives a radiant, natural-looking finish and can be built up for extra coverage. It doesn't cover up ACNE scars well but I think, for me ince I don't have ACNE, it is great for everyday, on-the-go look. It is non-comedogenic and suitable for sensitive skin. It has a light/sheer to medium coverage, but definitly buildable like any mineral foundation. I got mine in 208 Golden vanilla, which is slightly darker for my skin tone, but would defintely suite my complexion in summer. This one will be a stocker for me. Also, there are 8 shades to pick from.

Eye Shimmer eyeshadow in 08 Emerald : is a highlight shimmery color is light pale/pastel green that can be used as a highlight shade on its own, or on top of a cream green eyeshadow to accentuate it.A crease-resistant eyeshadow as well for your oily lids.
