The Body Shop Roseflower Spring Makeup Collection Review



I spotted the TBS Roseflower Collection at the store few days ago so here's my humble thoughts on the collection! :D

Roseflower Blush - RM79:



The blush itself is rather matte - the shimmers actually come from the embossed rose pattern! Texture wise it is quite powdery (bordering on being a little chalky), though it is reasonably pigmented.




Shade 01 is a sweet cool pink, whilst shade 02 is a bright reddish pink.


Roseflower Lips - RM49.90:



All 3 lipsticks are rather creamy! The colors, however, look rather similar, and i do think that they could be a little more pigmented!







All 3 lippies side by side:




As you can see, they're not pink at all, but rather reddish! Do not be fooled by the name! lol!


Roseflower Eyes - RM55



Let me start with Shade 01 - Sunshine Gold! The texture is alright, but it's REALLY lacking in the pigmentation department!! The swatch below is achieved with 5 or so swipes and still i could hardly see the color!!



Shade 02 however, is quite pigmented, but texture wise it is kinda chalky!!




Roseflower Radiance Stick - RM58:



If you MUST get anything from this collection, this is it. Methinks that this makes a lovely highlighter, and i love how creamy and pigmented it is! :)





So, what do i think about this collection? With boring colors and mediocre quality, IMHO this is one of those not-so-good collections from TBS, definitely skippable if you ask me!! And not sure if it's only me, but methinks that TBS is a little overpriced... for that price there are definitely better options out there (like, *ahem* MAC!!! :P)! :D

Did you get anything from this collection?

  10. Aww... don't regret girl!! I'm sure you bought them because you liked them personally!! :D

    Which part of Philippines are you from? :D if you're from Manila, maybe you can ask Nikki (www.askmewhats.com) and see if she knows where the MAC store is! :D

    Hmmm... i don't own that palette, but i'll try to check them out at the store if i can! Don't count on me though (i'll be away for the whole of next week, plus returning to India the next, so i don't know if i have time to check that out!)!! lol!! Maybe you can checkout Makeupalley.com for reviews for this product! :D

  13. I actually bought the the Deep Pink lippie from this collection. I was attracted by the fuschia-ish color on the model when I walked by TBS. hehe. :)

    The color is great, the smell is not. But then again, I'm no rose fan.
