Best Of Beauty - Make Up Musthaves

Hey  Peaches....

It's Week 3 of All The Buzz Best of Beauty Challenge and the topic of discussion is Make Up Musthaves. 

Since the tender age of 9 (when I experimented with my Mums collection - much to her horror) I have loved everything that make up has to offer. The chance to transform your look or simply boost confidence with everyday tricks, make up is a wondrous creation that I can't imagine life without! Choosing my all time favourite product was quite a task but I finally decided on this 'lovely' which I wear for a natural everyday look. 



Initially, I was never really wowed with BB creams when they came on the shelves a few years ago. I like a medium coverage and found that they didn't do enough for me. However, this All-In-One BB Cream by The Body Shop, which comes out of the tube white and adapts to the colour of your skin upon application, gives me a really great coverage and lasts for at least 8 hours! It blends in beautifully and although has a mid coverage it still remains very light and natural looking - ideal for daytime. It does just the right amount of moisturising so doesn't leave you with the dreaded shiny face. 

The Body Shop cover all bases by doing this BB cream in three shades: 01 for lighter skin tones, 02 for medium skin tones and 03 for darker skin tones. I got mine in 02 and its suit me down to the ground! 

I can't wait to read what other musthaves the rest of the bloggers involved in this challenge have got lined up and ready for me to HAVE to buy!

  3. This sounds like a really lovely product, I had given up on BB creams for a while but when you find a good one it definitely changes your opinion on them! Might need to pick this up! Glad I'm not the only one who has only posted about 1 product - it was so hard to resist writing about everything! x

    1. Yeh I was like that! If you aren't sure then The Body Shop do free small sample pots to try out so have a go with that first. Oh I know it was hard to have just one but it would have been a looooong post if I put them all in!

  5. I've tried a few BB creams but I haven't yet found one that I love so I'll keep trying. Maybe this one will do the trick. Thanks for sharing ;)

    1. You should be able to get a small sample pot from the store to try out first. Go have a see and check how it is for you before parting with your money!

    1. Yeh I think a lot of people don't know the full make up range at The Body Shop, just think of it for body products. They have some good stuff worth checking out though!
